“Good for quick dining”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

I like going here when I am in a hurry. I am a repeat customer and the wait staff is amazing. Always friendly, always willing to customize order and then ask if you like the food. They have a decent wine selection and a good variety of food. I go with the vegetarian wrap frequently and it is really good. It is usually crowded and they need to update the decor but don't let that discourage you from giving it a try.

“Nice bar”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

Like the bar -- very intimate feeling. Decent selection of wines. Pretty much standard selection of beer. Does not usually have 'craft' beers. Food is consistently good though expensive for what you get. If you add anything on, it costs more, i.e., guacamole with your quesadilla. Also, if you want a side salad instead of fries, you get charged extra for that. Service is usually very good -- attentive and friendly.

“Good Pub food”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

I've been here many times throughout the years and it has stayed the same. A good solid place to come to eat and hang out. I've been here 4 times already this year and have no complaints, only complements. The food is cooked the way you want it. Rare is rare and well done is well done, no communication problems. The volume of food is plenty and the flavor is tasty. I've had their fish, salads, burgers and several appatizers and everything has been great. My family lives in the area and this is always a great place to go for lunch, dinner or happyhour. Oh yeah-the waite staff is very friendly and efficient.

“One of Hillsborough's oldest Bar and Grille”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

This place has been in business for decades and thats because they do a good job.

Foods really good, average prices and the workers do a good job.

Always a nice place to stop in for a beer.

“Petrock's Bar and Grille”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Nice pub. Food was average. I expected a little more atmosphere.
I don't think I would go back as I was not happy with the overall place. It was clean, food was average. I prefer a little more when I eat dinner out, okay for a quick lunch.
