On Tuesday's Petrock's has T-bone steak, normally $29 for $19 with a baked potato. We had edamame for an appetizer followed by the steak and potato. Lovely. Cooked and seasoned just right. Gotta remember to do that again soon!

I've only eaten here for lunch but sandwiches are good and there's a decent selection of beer on tap.

Great menu and service! Go with my family often. Monday night football is popular. Large assortment of beers.

I was there with 8 other people. The food and service (Ann was our waitress who was excellent) was very good. They also have a special room with a round table to accommodate us.

Petrocks is a local favorite with standard pub food. Many fried items but good burgers. For a restaurant tied to a liquor store, their wine selection is dismal and martini's are average. Convenient and friendly. Good place to grab a burger and watch a game.

Went tonight for dinner. Ordered a special - grilled scallop teriyaki salad - and it was delicious. Even our appetizer - beans con queso -was good. However, my friend ordered a sloppy Jane sandwich -- their take on a sloppy Joe. She was less than pleased with the warm coleslaw on her sandwich which had been put under the broiler.... More

We have been going to Petrock's for about 3 years now as we live locally. The food is consistently good whether you get a burger or something like Chicken Piccata. Not run of the meal french fries, but steak fries. Great perogies which we love as an appetizer.

Went here with friends for an early dinner. The restaurant/bar was moderately crowded at 5:00PM (opening), but we were seated immediately. The service was efficient, and friendly and our orders came hot and fast. We all had burgers and they were very good, ample sized, cooked as we ordered and the fries were also hot and plentiful. Drinks were reasonable,... More

I do prefer to support businesses that are independently owned (not chains) and it is always nice to support someone from my home town (hmmm, I am not going to break into song). Bonnie Petrock is always friendly, always smiling and a great hostess. When I owned a business and reserved the small room for business dinners the service was... More

Growing up just 5 miles down the road, we have all passed this place several times, but never stopped in. Last night we all decided we wanted to try some place new, and decided petrock's would be the place. The service was attentive, prompt and friendly . And the food delivered just as high accolades. Everyone was happy and stuffed... More
