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.

Friendly staff, good food and drink and not too loud. Indoor and outdoor dining. We eat here 2-3 times a month. Better than a diner.

The bar is nice with a great selection and a good crowd. However, the food is only average in selection. The taste of everything is very good, just an average selection.
