I lived in Columbia 25 years ago and have been coming here for the past 15 years. This restaurant is always on my list. The food is excellent, service friendly and Beer selection second to none. It's truly one of the best eateries in Lancaster county hand down.

This is not a huge place, very nice and spaced out in different sections. The food can be from small appetizers, burgers & fries to excellent dinner choices. The beer choices, is one of the top places voted with the most extensive selections, so if you are a beer drinker get ready! A very friendly staff and is also family... More

Columbia is not the classiest part of Lancaster County, but Bully's is a very good restaurant. The food is delicious and they have a wonderful selection of draft beer.

I remember my parents coming here for "special" nights out when I was younger. To be honest, I forgot about this place however my wife and I were looking for a place to go that was new and wasn't a chain restaurant. We hopped on TripAdvisor and found Bully's and then I remembered my parents enjoying it so much. We... More

My husband & I have been here on numerous occasions, and do not leave disappointed. The menu is unique and everything we have tried has been delicious. We recently had a soup there that was to die for-- mushroom and brie bisque. Bully's has a great beer selection-- bound to please ANYONE. If you aren't from the area- be sure... More

Bully's has a great location and a definite vibe. Their menu is eclectic, their beer selection is very unique (especially for Columbia, PA) and their staff is friendly. When ordering dinner, you can expect a lovely combination of salad and entree with drinks or beer to accompany. I wish trip adviser had 5 tiers on their cost scale I would... More

Loved the Bison Burger and appreciated that the waitress advised me to go for rare. It was juicy and tasty. My sibs loved the HUGE selection of beers and the ability to do a flight (4 beers, 8 oz each) to have a tasting.

On a triangle corner in an old brick building in Columbia sits Bully's Pub - unassuming from the outside, somewhat hard to find if you don't have directions, and in a mix of modest residential and commercial properties. Inside I find friendly and well-trained staff, a wide selection of drinks served correctly, a beautiful old bar, and really well-prepared dinner... More

Six friends went for a "Chevy" ride to Bully's We all had a very nice time together and enjoyed the food and the service. My wife and I went back a few weeks later on a date and had another very good experience. We enjoy the Victorian atmosphere. I enjoy their Bison burger with a salad. Our friends want to... More
