Like others we tried this out 10 years ago during tourist season and were not pleased. Went again (10 years later) last week and had a totally different experience! Great fried clam rolls good drinks and a very friendly and efficient waitress(Denise). Even got a table side visit from the old codger... read more

We chose Bull and Claw because of the special extras offered on their holiday menu...ie specially seasoned veggies, salad and soup bar...etc. Our meals were about $20 which was good for what was promised. But at the salad bar, most of the plates were not clean and some components had mold. Our meals took a while but when they finally... More

We were ignored by the waitress for quite a while. We had to wait a long time for our food and when it came it was over cooked and just gross. It was also expensive and not very clean.

new to the area and stopped in for dinner. The inside is stuck in the 70's with some booths having pink shades, and plastic table cloths. T me this is equal to a low end diner. but prices are for a very good restaurant. The food wasn't great either.

Okay, it wasn't terrible, but it also wasn't great. We were looking for something plain and simple, and this did fit the bill. The food and ambience were fine--totally acceptable. Just not outstanding or exceptional. Our server Ashley tried very hard to accommodate our allergies, checking to make sure the prime rib was gluten free, and returning my spouse's fish... More

We have dined frequently at the Bull and Claw for at least the past 15 years. We have seen the service go off the rails now and then. Our most recent visit, however, was the bottom. We were seated next to the salad bar and were told that our server would be with us right away. Everybody else was getting... More
