They have a good menu with a good price range. The servers are very friendly. Great beer options. We love the steaks, lobster bisque and roasted red pepper with gouda soup. We like to go during the week when it's a little less busy. We definitely recommend it and go back regularly.

Their beer menu is extensive. You will certainly find something you like if you can make a decision. Their food is excellent. The cream of crab is really spicey and delicious. I had the vegetable stacker which was spinach and cheese filled ravioli alternating with egg plant slices in between raviolis covered in a delicious sauce. My husband had a... More

Went here with a Groupon. The food was excellent and so was the service. It was the first time we were here and it definitely deserves another trip. Enjoyed drinks and dinner

Historic inside and out. Food was fantastic - except the bread. I had the Tips and Toast - toast was plain white tasteless bread. Got the chocolate brownie and ice cream for desert - brownie was a dry cupcake. Otherwise dinner was perfect. Service was fantastic. And beer selection was awesome! Family of 4 with drinks and deserts cost us... More

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.
