Can't go Wrong with Bulls and Bears

I've been to Bulls and Bears several times over the years and it's always been a reliable place to go. Although I haven't found the entrees to be "thrilling", I like to go there for the classics: crab cakes, steak, etc. The beer selection is fine and the service has always been good. I also... read more

Of the several times I've eaten at this restaurant, I've only had good service on one occasion. The past two times I've been there, I've eaten outside. It wasn't crowded, and we didn't have to wait to be seated. One of the tables was occupied by smokers so that was a bit annoying. The pasta dish I had was just... More

We wanted to have a group meeting there, and our service was absolutely awful. The management does NOT control their employees, who absolutely need an over haul. We were told that there was no manager on duty, and apparently that was acceptable behavior because the person who lied to us is still there. If you go, I recommend that you... More

We stopped in here as a couple for a late lunch while geocaching in the area. We were walk-ins, with no reservations, and were seated immediately. Service was attentive and quick. Food was average to good, we both had burgers. Decent beer selection. Kind of loud, and way to man screens for our taste, but we were likely not the... More

Neat and comfortable atmosphere. My friend and I had lunch there. People around us seemed to be enjoying themselves. There were a few groups enjoying some brews outside on the patio near the street and also on the indoor patio. We were in a comfy booth inside since it was hot and humid outside. I enjoyed the C.E.O. Crab Cake... More

We loved this place. Not only did they accommodate us with my puppy but they also gave me a side of grated carrots upon request, which she loved. The food was good but the staff made the place an A+. Open on a Sunday afternoon while everyone else was closed.

The food was great and everyone was very friendly. They were a little busy but still it did not take long to get service from the staff. All the food was cooked perfectly as advertised and requested. Very good.

We reserved this lovely spot to meet with family from DC. The Mother's Day buffet was set up with prime rib & pork loin carving, omelet, salad, dessert, & children's stations. The main buffet tables were refreshed often with crab cakes, pistachio salmon, chicken, asparagus & sides we all enjoyed. Despite a slightly wobbly table, our gathering was delightful in... More

Food is good when previously dined but the last time my friends and I visited the establishment, service was poor. We were waiting for a table for other people in the party and was told it would be ready shortly. When other friends arrived, they did nothing to accommodate them, not even to ask them if they would like to... More

A great location, open every day for lunch & dinner. An especially good spot for eating prior to a show at the Maryland Theater. They do have special occasion buffet brunches (i.e. Easter Sunday, Mother's Day, etc.). We've always found the atmosphere to be warm and friendly. The menu is broad enough to satisfy most everyone. There are a couple... More
