Nice restaurant on the riverfront

Diverse menu, food was excellent. Outdoor riverfront seating makes for a unique experience. Easy walk from historic downtown area, and was well worth it.

We enjoy coming here for the food and the view. Even without the view we would return. Main bar room or dining room, both are set up to match your mood. Sports buddies and live TV, river view patio bar or table cloth quiet dining are all available. As we are changing from Fredburg visitors to locals we appreciate the... More

Love this restaurant, as a local I eat here often and I am never disappointed, New waterfront patio is the best outdoor spot in town.

Have always wanted to go here so tried it today, sitting outside on a nice day. View of the Rap...River was nice and honestly found the trains going by occasionally interesting to view. Some of the food was good, some not so. Pepper and crab soup of the day was good as were the crab cakes. Caesar salad good and... More

We visited this restaurant while on vacation with another couple. The day we went was chilly so we dined inside but the view of the river was still great and this would be a great summertime outing. Our service was good the food was great and I highly recommend saving room for their signature dessert the HoHo. It was unique... More

I think we have gone to Brocks Riverside Grill for the LAST time this evening. Went there for dinner….so disappointed. At 5pm the dining room was empty. First clue. I went through 4 sets of silverware before finding a set that was actually CLEAN. Second clue. We ordered our meal. We received our salads, which were fine, but could have... More

Great location. Our waiter Tom was fun, telling the kids a new riddle each time he came back to table. Lots of options on the menu. Food was good...dessert was amazing. We would go back!

So... I live in fredericksburg and rode past Brocks all the time... We finally decided to plan a visit for my wife's bday. The reviews were pretty awesome on trip advisor so I said why not. The location is awesome... when you walk in... it's a very clean establishment... set up very nicely. The bar is right up front and... More

This place has a superb variety of choices to dine, have a happy hour in the bar or the patio, we have used their facilities for receptions several times, or to catch a little view of the water and trains coming thru. Food is above par but not "stuck-up or stuffy" like a lot of other places that are just... More

The view of the Rappahanock River was very nice. The restaurant was quiet enough for conversation. The service was average. We waited a while for the server to first arrive to the table, but once he got there, the service was good. Prices are high for the area, and the food was good, but not exceptional. I thought it was... More
