We've eaten there several times over the past few months. Our food and service have been great. We enjoy their happy hour drink/food specials.

Enjoyed lunch here recently. The atmosphere inside is nothing fancy, but comfortable. If possible, get a table by the windows over looking the river. The service was friendly and efficient, with a little humor thrown in for good measure. My only complaint was that when listing the specials, no prices were given. A common problem. That said, I tried the... More

I had a couple of hours to wait for a train and the locals recommended this place. The crab cakes were excellent. I ate outside by myself and the service was excellent. They didn't try to hurry me. I'm not a gourmet but with that disclaimer, I found the food to be well above average. I can't imagine eating inside... More

Stopped at Brocks on the drive up to Baltimore. Good place to have stopped. View was good of the bridge and river. Club sandwich was juicy flavorful and tender. The crab cake sandwich was also very good. Good value. Service folks were very friendly.

Located on the south side of downtown Fredericksburg under the train bridge, the biggest draw of Brock's is the deck overlooking the river. Even for a cold night, people still wanted to sit outside - they were welcome to it. Would be nice in warmer weather. We were a table in the bar area. Even with reservations, we were treated...

We were at Brock's for lunch. When we walked in there was a musty smell and the restaurant was cold, dark and damp. I had to go and get jackets from the car. It was a beautiful day and the view was excellent. The food was good, but not outstanding. At least at lunch, the menu was somewhat limited. They... More

If you are looking for a great Sunday brunch, Brock's has one of the best in the area. Eggs Benedict are great as well as the omelets.

While the outside patio was wonderful, the food was a mixed bag. We shared appetizers. The nachos were excellent. The calamari was sent back. Strong fish odor and mushy. A second plate of nachos did the trick.

Nothing special about this place from my visit. The food was good and it wasn't bad. There are better bars with better food in Fredericksburg.
