Great Food and Drink!

We ate here because of Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. The beer menu was extensive and came with a "bible" full of information and suggestions. Soup was unusual and delicious. We had Bangers and Mash and Chicken Sandwich both of which were great. We finished it off with ice cream... read more

After reading other reviews, we were really excited to try Bully's. It did not live up to the hype. Our app was great (NZ mussels), but the duck confit and ribs were just okay. I still would have given 4 stars, except half way through our meal our server seemed to mentally check out. We waited forever to see the... More

Now this is a great local pub. Everything is just how I would do it myself. From the never ending beer list, to the great appetizers to the main meal it all has the "come on in sit down and spend some time" feel. Always excellent staff that is very accommodating. One of my "go too" spots for a good... More

The restaurant is only open from 4PM on.... but it's worth the wait. Service is excellent, the menu varied, and the quality of the food has to be tried to believe.

We wanted to go somewhere we hadn't been and celebrate the end of a very hard week. This was our first visit and we took a long time checking out the beer list and then the menu. The staff was great and very helpful. The food was fresh, came out nice and hot from the kitchen (a big deal to... More

My wife and I visited Bully's for the first time and enjoyed a great dinner. The seafood mac & cheese was wonderful, as was the ribs and shrimp. We will definitely be back.

Some of the best wings I've had, but tats just the start. Excellent entrees and he largest selection of beers I've encountered. Staff is friend and professional and their desserts are made next door through a local bakery that is wonderful. Clean, good for conversation and a fine place.

My family enjoys going here when we are looking for something other than a burger.This is the place to go to if you want great food. The prices are reasonable for the quality of the food. I have always received great service here. Bully's has a large selection of beers
