Awesome interior!! Very classy bar spot unlike a chain or smokey townie bar, this place is really unique. Diverse drink menu, pizzas, and the coolest part is going through an old English phone booth to access the second half of the restaurant. Highly recommend

Ever feel like a regular the first time you visited a restaurant? This place was great... Warm welcome then a quick tour through a London phone booth to our table. The waitress was phenomenal, knowledgeable about the menu, and made great recommendations! The food... The pappardelle with Gorgonzola with a grilled portobello was a fantastic starter, very rich. Great lamb... More

This place knows food...and how to cook it. We fished with Cast Away Charters earlier in the day and Captain Tim cleaned our fish and delivered it to the restaurant so we could have them prepared and eat them for dinner that night. He made us a reservation for 7:30. We arrived a few minutes early, but were seated immediately.... More

Old Bull Tavern (or OBT) has great food and a great atmosphere. While there, don't miss the prosciutto and asparagus flatbread/pizza! Sometimes the dining room can get a little crowded, but they have expanded to a new space next door. To get to the new area, you walk though a phone booth! Very cool and hip!

John, Stacy, Oscar, Kevin, and all the staff took very good care of my celebratees and we feasted on portabella and asparagus pizza as well as smoked... More

We had to try this restaurant because it is #1 on Trip Advisor for Beaufort, SC. First....MAKE RESERVATIONS IN ADVANCE!!! We arrived in Beaufort on a Thursday and didn't think we would need reservations....wrong, we couldn't get a table. Finally got a table for Friday night, in the back of the bar area, which was fine for us. SECOND-the lighting... More

Stumbled across this pub while out on a date night. Very friendly/warm atmosphere. Didn't have to wait long to be seated at all- maybe 20 minutes on a very busy Saturday night. Staff was so accommodating to us. The menu is a bit confusing as it definitely has many specialty dishes that can be hard to make out. Waiter VERY... More

Went to Parris Island for Marine graduation and stumbled upon Old Bull. Without reservations they were very accommodating. Gabriel made great recommendations off the menu and the food was incredible and he made us feel right at home. If you're in Beaufort you gotta go.
