“Great local place to have dinner, apps or beverages and watch games”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Place is always crowded with local folks after sporting event or for sporting events, or to have a bite at the bar or dining room. Soon the outside will be open and it is nice to hang back there. Menu is pretty expansive and they run specials in the bar area. I would stick with the basics in terms of food. I had tuna seared salad and tuna was not sushi grade and was overdone. It is what it is kind of a place. If you want gourmet or fine fare, go elsewhere. Solid food.

“Nice local place”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

Petrocks is a great local pub with good food and a nice family atmosphere. Don't let the exterior fool you, the inside is well kept and actually very nice. Food is basic American fare and the burgers are excellent !!

“Great Local Spot”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Full stocked bar, food is uneven depending on the Chef du jour. Their outside patio is wonderful and they don't rush you out. I would frequent it more often but the food is not reliable which makes me go elsewhere many times. Too bad as it is a great local spot.

“Good scene for local bar; restaurant is pricey for what you expect; good outdoor space”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

I like going here for local connections. Bartenders pour well and the bar is ok. Decent for watching games although there are better places. Gets crowded on weekend nights. I think the place is not the best for kids and families as the bar is very close to the tables in both rooms. I like the front room as it is kind of secluded. Nice outside patio which can attract smokers though.
