This was our "go-to" place for special meals: excellent food and service, nice atmosphere, a "wow" beer selection, etc. But after our last dinner here in June, I think we'll be going down the road to the "other" popular place in town. The prices at Bully's were much higher this time than the last time we were there, about a... More

Beautiful old bar and wonderful food. They offer a large selection of beer. The food was wonderful. Prices are a little high.

Bully's is such a find...an unbelievable beer list with a fabulous sampler list but more importantly the food was exceptional. Our group did tapas style with different appetizers such as phenomenal lamb sliders, crab cakes, amazing soups. Well worth the trip to Columbia. Oh and the desserts were pretty yummy too.

We came here for dinner on a Thursday night. We were a tad annoyed that there was 1 waitress, who was also the bartender, who was waiting on 5 tables and a full bar. We were constantly waiting. The food was good but I wouldn't say excellent. I definitely don't think it's worth the price. I ordered the lamb chops... More

It's places like this and the efforts they make that really turn a town around! Great food and even friendly patrons! My girlfriend and I were backpacking the Mason Dixon Trail when we stayed here, and even the patrons were buying me drinks!

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

Double Take Deal 1/2 Price Certificate - allowed us to discover another GREAT local restaurant!! Ribs are some of the BEST ... Sea Bass was awesome - but needed a lot more sauce than it originally came out with...Don't pass up the hand cut Fries they are awesome and that's saying a lot since I'm not one to order fries,...
