My husband and I visited Rookies after skiing at Holiday Valley all day! (We were staying in Bradford) the place doesn't look the nicest from the outside but give it a chance the food is amazing! I had the Rodeo Burger cooked medium and it was one of the best I have had in a very long time! The service... More

I've been craving a good buffalo chicken wrap and was so happy that I found it here! Although the waitress was just okay, the food made the overall experience really great. There is also a large variety of different beers as well. I'd recommend Rookies as a good choice for a quick lunch/dinner break or for some drinks!

Dinner was sub par... my wings were cold when I got them, my moms had not Much flavor and my dads weren't cooked. The fried pickles were great though! We weren't checked on until after the meal. Not worth $50

We loved this place! Our waiter was fabulous! The restaurant was very busy but we did not have to wait for service and our food came quickly. My husband had the wings and I had a burger. They were both really good. We had great conversation with some of the locals. Best place we ate on our trip.

Was in Bradford on business and had a taste for Wing's. Looked at reviews and decided on trying Rookies out. Place is very clean and service was amazing. I was made to feel welcome as a non local. The Fried Pickles appetizer was fantastic! The Wings were big and delicious very flavorful!! Definitely will go back my next trip in... More

We visit Rookies often for their crispy green beans (OMG YUM!), chicken wraps, and HUGE variety of beer both on tap and specialty in the cooler. The service is most often quick and friendly and the owners are great.

The staff is great, and the managers will come right up and start a friendly conversation, especially sports. The food is good bar food like pizza, sandwiches, and burgers, so it goes great with their wide selection of beers and mixed drinks. The Rookie Cookie is also a nice treat for dessert.

I travel alone for business every week. Most times its tough to find a place that makes you feel comfortable right away. Rookies was recommended by the hotel staff. The old hotel wasn't much to look at when I pulled into lot. Once inside it I was glad I came. I sat at the bar and had great service. The... More

My riding buddy and I go out for lunch on Friday's several times during the Winter. I had not been in this building in more than 35 years since it was called the Bradford Hotel. It was his first time here for food also . Anyway the place was nice and clean. It was smaller than I remembered. There is... More
