Service was mediocre, food was sub par, and the management was not very pleasant... I don't think I would ever waste the time for a return trip...

Rockwells is the closest thing to "Cheers" in our area. Good pub food,, goo appetizers, and great beer selection. Mug club members get their own mug and discounts. We always seem to see folks we know when we visit (which is often).

This place has really good food and drinks at really good prices for the most part. Sandwiches, wings, chili, burgers, and salads were ordered from our party of 5. Everyone, including myself, enjoyed the food. I think the service was a little slow but it was a crowded thursday. Recommended...

This is a big place. The bar is huge with a large fireplace on the end. Same great bar tender who remembered beer tastes from two months ago. The food was not up to par. I ordered a pulled pork sandwich that was not great. One person really liked his Reuben. Pretty good beer selection

I've been going to TJ Rockwell's for many years and never had a bad meal or a bad experience. You get a good meal at a good price and they have a fairly extensive beer list as well. Give them a try if you're in the area.

Can get a bit crowded at times. Food is good and a good selection of beer is available. If you like you can get a sampler tray of beer. Locations are a bit off the main drags so you may need your GPS but worth the drive. Both locations have an outdoor deck or summer.
