The bartender was fantastic! We had some really cool drinks. I wish we had been able to eat while we were there because the menu looks incredible! They don't open till 5pm. I hope we can make it back sometime soon!

This has become a "must do" every time we go to Beaufort. Their menu has a lot of creativity and we have never had a bad meal here. Absolutely recommend.

Trendy with exceptional service, food and atmosphere! We didn't have reservations (but I can see why you need them) and were greeted and seated as if we had. The food was amazing - recommend the gnocchi and black angus dishes. Service was attentive and caring...host/owner (?) stopped by to check on us and it truly wasn't your typical 'drive by'.... More

The Old Bull Tavern is one of those places that is tucked just off the main (Bay) street that doesn't look the part from the outside but certainly is a very good restaurant. Yes, it's small and gets a little tight at times but that's all part of the ambiance. I'm a little bit of a beer snob and my... More

This is a great place in Beaufort. It can get fairly busy which can make it tricky sometimes to get a table. But the food is worth it. I have eaten here on a number of occasions and I have never been disappointed.

Fun place to go, not your ordinary, run of the mill restaurant. Recommend the Purgatory drink. Only complaint would be very dim lighting, difficult for my older parents to see menu.

We ate at the bar, due to the popularity for this place. The bartenders are great and really take preparing a drink to the next level, fun to watch. The menu varies greatly, but we really enjoyed the chicken pate, pappardelle, and roasted portobella pizza. Of the places we ate in Beaufort, this was my favorite.

Went here with a large group. Even larger than the crowd for which we had a reservation. The staff didn't skip a beat and provided excellent, attentive service. The food was excellent. In our group, we had a couple of burgers, pizza, pasta, shoulder, salads, salmon. It was all excellent. It's definitely got a tavern feel and I understand why... More

Pasta was mush. Order was wrong. My wife was hit on by one of the bartenders. Cool location, but overall experience was over hyped. Pizza was over priced. I have never written a review before, but the staff, she told me to write one. SO HERE IT IS!
