Great place with a great view of the Rappahannock River. Food is excellent and the staff is great. Family was here from the west coast and they were very impressed.

Their burgers are the best in the area! Great outdoor seating & fantastic happy hour! We love coming here because it's always the same servers and reliable fast service.

Had dinner with a couple of business associates at the Brock's Riverside Grill in mid-April. The weather was very fine and we chose to sit outside on the patio overlooking the river and the nearby railroad bridge. The food was excellent: Small crab cakes for starter, a fine piece of New York Strip main course and "Brock’s Signature Ho-Ho" chocolate... More

We picked this restaurant as it had seating out on the terrace overlooking the Rappahannock. The view was beautiful as was the weather. We saw that crab cakes were on the menu and had to try them. We were not disappointed. They were very good. Lots of beer choices to try. Service was very good also. Limited parking right at... More

Romantic dinner on the veranda on a beautiful spring evening over looking the river. My crab cakes were delicious and my husbands jambalaya was very good also. A nice relaxing evening.

We had dinner here on 4/2/17. We ate on the outside patio. The view of the river was fine, the food (crab cakes veggies and mashed potatoes and risotto, fish and broccoli) was very good. Dessert (cheesecake with raspberry sauce) was also very good. We thought the pricing was reasonable and a good value ($70 pre tip for two dinners,... More

This is not an every weekend restaurant but it is well worth the occasional visit. It is more expensive than many of the old town spots but the staff work to make every visit special. The food is always exactly as you order and always flavorful. This deserves a spot on your must try list for Fredericksburg.

This was the first restaurant that we stopped at in Fredericksburg and we were pleasantly surprised. Beautiful location with outside tables overlooking the river. The food was good...shrimp & shrimp! App. of shrimp in a smoked gouda sauce and crab stuffed shrimp for dinner. No room for dessert just a long walk !!

Visited early evening on a Saturday. Good service but food was only average. Chicken pasta alfredo was rather greasy and not a great portion. Chicken salad had very poor quality meat in it - dark and with gristle. Kids mac and cheese tastes like it came out of a packet from walmart. Also didn't like that the menu had no... More

I had the best crab stuffed shrimp I've had in a long time and my husband had the delicious ribs. And the appletinis weren't bad either! :)
