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).

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

Petrocks is a community staple that has a good atmosphere for mingling or watching sports. A few bar tables and two small dining areas. Outdoor seating as well with separate smoking areas. Food is good but a little pricey for a local pub. If you sit at a table in the bar area expect to be waited in by the... More

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.

This is a local family owned restaurant with great food, drink, and ambiance. We have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed. A great bar, or table seating. Food is very reasonably priced and delicious. Burgers are excellent. Freshly made and cooked your way. Highly recommended for a nice relaxing dinner, or just a few drinks and appys.

Good food, friendly, many, many locals, bar tenders know lots of customers. Just a good place to go in Hillsborough for a drink or to eat. Fun menu : hot dogs to prime rib.
