Brockett Pub House & Grill Restaurant Review: A varied audience assembles at this family-owned pub, ranging from biker types to accountants, all mingling and playing Trivial Pursuit as if they were lifelong chums. Owners Christina and John Gagne maintain the quality, and that's what keeps the crowds coming. Sourced from a good purveyor, the hot dogs are the familiar jumbo franks; get one topped with chili. Start a cold evening with a cup of either chili or Brunswick stew, the latter chunky with bits of meat and vegetables. The burger is a substantial two-hander with all the trimmings, and made from Kansas-based Creekstone Farms beef, a meat that's good enough to allow you to order it rare. Daily specials raise the bar a notch, and may include such standbys as beef stroganoff. But if you plan to have the day's choice, get there early as it runs out soon. Made-in-house desserts change daily; consider the pineapple cake with mango cream icing. The wine list is perfunctory, but Brockett deals in beers by the bucketful, so they’re the quaff to target. The drafts list rotates often, but local suds have a tap or two among the lot.
