Your server Nathan, was very respectful of us and had a great sense of humor. Nate was also quite attentive to our needs... thank you to Nate. I can't really describe that wonderfully thick, juicy and great tasting hamburger that I had. Usually in places that I order a "medium" burger, it comes out "well done"... at Brock's, each time...

Brocks has consistently good food. There is a great selection of beer and wine. The service is not as consistent as the quality of food. I guess good help is hard to find.

We used Brocks for a short notice get together when we were in town for a soccer tournament. They were willing and able to accommodate 30 teenage boys and their parents in 3 days notice. Food was really good and the staff was attentative. Looked at the downstairs restaurant menu and that looked very good also. Would definitely try it... More

This was my first time at Brock's. We were there Saturday night with 20 people for a friends birthday. We sat in the bar because it was a celebration and we might get a bit loud and didn't want to disturb serious diners, lol. The service was outstanding. The mixed drinks were wonderful and the food was served hot and... More

One of those places where the glossy menus desperately need the crud cleaned off and everything is just getting old and needs replaced. The butternut squash ravioli was surprisingly good. Crab cakes were okay. Nothing special here but not a bad place for lunch. Sat outside overlooking the river.

We heard so many good comments about Brock's that we decided to give this place a try. Though we did not have reservations we were seated in the main dining areas immediately. We enjoyed the views and character/decor of the dining area. We chose the mini crab cakes and appetizer special followed by entrees of Glazed Salmon and Seafood Carbonara.... More

I met my father for lunch on a Friday. Upon walking through the door I was greeted by the hostess. I informed her I was meeting someone in the bar & she pointed me to the bar entrance. As I sat down at the table the bartender promptly came over to take my order. Steve was attentive without being intrusive... More

Great food, excellent service and quiet atmosphere. Brock's is, quite simply, our absolute favorite place to dine in the Fredericksburg region. The food is always outstanding and the service is always top notch. We dine out at other restaurants from time to time for variety, but the standard for comparison is always Brock's. And Brock's always trumps the others. You... More
