Bulls and Bears is a quaint restaurant in the financial district of downtown Hagerstown. It is a refurbished old warehouse and the architecture is really nice. The menu offers quite a varied selection. The prices are extremely reasonable. The staff is outstanding. Parking is great with a deck in the rear which connects to the restaurant. Whether you stop by... More

The Bulls and Bears is in a refurbished warehouse-type building downtown. The interior architecture is a gem. The food there is pretty good, but some elements of the meal were a little heavy on salt. Crab pretzel appetizer was awesome. Biggest complaint: the service was extremely slow when the place wasn't even half-full. Empty dishes sat in front of us... More

This restaurant was recommended to us. We thought it was just ok. Good: Lots of variety on the menu. We enjoyed seating outside in the heart of Hagerstown. The service was good. Not So Good: The food tasted too much like the food at a chain restaurant. We did not find it to be anything special--quickly prepared or prepackaged. The... More

The food was good for a Hagerstown restaurant, most are chain restaurants this one is a step above. The atmosphere was a pub style. We sat outside which I would advise against. It was very noisy with traffic and the local downtown street bums would walk by talking very loudly and looking at the food on your plate like they... More

It is a very nice atmosphere restaurant, just to break the "bad downtown" aura, but you might find it a little expensive for its portions... Apart from that, the selection on the menu and its staff will keep you happy.

Met for a recent family dinner. Atmosphere was like a New York City bar - loved the tickertape! Our server was extremely professional and welcoming - friendly, polite, courteous - she was one of the best servers we have had anywhere. Nice beer and wine selection. Dinners were reasonable - most between $10 - $20. I had the homemade chicken... More

My last review of Bulls & Bears was 2 years ago. While the faces change, the atmosphere and food remains consistent. They have outdoor sidewalk seating which is nice in the evenings. I recently had the blackened chicken and shrimp dish over pasta with cajun sauce and it was super. Fresh dinner rolls and a garden salad with house dressing... More

The decor is very nice and quaint. Located in downtown. Was disappointed with the food. I got chicken topped with crab and an old bay sauce. The chicken was tough and there wasn't a lot of crab and sauce. Fish and chips was heavily breaded. I'm happy I went but not sure if I would go back again.

Bulls and Bears has an expansive dining room that blends into the bar. The beers are plentiful and the food good old fashion American faire. Great place to open up you lap top and finish off some work. It has convenient parking especially in rainy weather.
