Big Rock Pub

Big Rock Pub has managed to make the best of a tough situation throughout the pandemic. Their two wonderful patios and brand new beer garden help make outdoor dining as enjoyable as possible! Big Rock has a wonderful outdoor dining experience and has recently updated their menu to offer some new and unique dishes. They have added the Thai Burger, while keeping around some old favorites like the Rockin’ Riblets, making the new Big Rock menu one that can satisfy anyone’s taste buds! We also cannot forget their addition of wonderfully tasting pizzas, which includes the gigantic 24 slice “Mr. 59”.
