We were lucky to be in town during restaurant week and had the special at Brock's. We both had a half sandwich and a pice of key lime pie. Very good and just the right amount.

My husband and I had lunch at Brock's last Sunday. We took advantage of one of the special meals for Fredericksburg's Restaurant Week. The bruschetta was the best I've eaten anywhere. The roasted chicken and mashed potatoes were very good, and the Key lime pie dessert was just the right mix of tart and sweet. Spacious bright dining room, with... More

I took my brother and his wife to dinner. It was their first time dining at Brocks. Trust me, it won't be their last. Rick, our favorite waiter was back and he went above and beyond helping them decide. The food was devine and the service was outstanding.

Wondered in here for a last minute dinner after finding out that my original destination was closed. Brock's has a really nice beer list and the ribs were ok for a restaurant that does not specialize in barbecue.

We met friends for a mutual birthday luncheon celebration at Brock’s Riverside Grill. The restaurant touts a large horseshoe bar with plenty of seating, a dining area and a private dining area overlooking the river. Our reservation was for window seating, and it did not disappoint. We dined on crab cake sandwiches (scrumptious!), Angus beef burger (succulent!), Philly Steak cheese... More

We always love the food, drinks, and service. Excellent Spot to hang out in downtown Fredericksburg right on the water.

Ate dinner at Brock's. Wife had the salmon and I had the crab cakes. As always both seafood dinners were outstanding. We had drinks which was during happy hour so very well priced. We finished off the meal with a creame brûlée which was to die for. We ate at a booth in the bar area and was very well... More

As always...Brocks does not disappoint! Seared Ahi tuna was amazing. Hubby had the filet and was equally impressed. He usually orders the Tuscan wrap and I get the chicken fingers...but change was good...and delish! Their homemade ranch is amazing.......dip anything in it and you won't be sorry. If you haven't been here yet, what are you waiting for?!

Dined here many times, including New Years Eve. Great food, burgers to steaks. Summer patio above the river and next to the tracks is a great place to meet commuters coming in from DC. Good food, beer and drinks. Bands on the weekends. Formal dining inside.

Definitely get that. And if you are there for brunch, nobody does eggs Benedict better. If you just want to grab a beer they have indoor and outdoor dining/ bars and it seems like a popular local hangout!
