“Lousy service, great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

Heard a lot of good reviews on this place and they were all right on. Large selection of brews. None of us were drinkers which seemed to be an issue for the waitress who disappeared for awhile before taking our order.

The food was great. Wings, burgers, pizza, and mussels were all delicious. The French fries were outstanding and the food plentiful. The service sucked.

We were served our food by other staff. No check up, no refills on ice tea or water. We finally had to yell to get her attention. Trying to pay the bill was another long wait. The food is good enough to try again. I hope the service will be better.

“Good but noisy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012 via mobile

We've been to Ulysses 4 times now. The food is good for the price, and substantial in quantity. The one problem I have is the music in the resturaunt area is way too loud for my liking. The acoustics in the eating area is very poor and causes one to talk louder then the table next to them, which in turn adds to the din.

“Not to miss inventive and mouth-watering creations!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

It's hard to make up my mind when I eat here, because there's so many interesting choices. I'd have to go every day to catch all their wonderful daily specials, that aren't even on the regular menu! I look forward to going again and again for the duck confit and other special pizza's (made with a special brewer's beer yeast), delicious spicy mussels, shepherd' pie, and onion soup with steak burger sliders. I would also recommend a glass of their Rodney Strong Zinfandel! Bon apetit!!

“Great spot for a bite and a beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

I have been there twice and enjoyed in both times. The first was for a happy hour and we had some great beer and the philly cheesesteak in a pretzel roll, it was good, not very big. Loved the pretzel appetizer and the happy hour sliders.

“Just OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We have been to Ulysses several times. We were excited to have a new place in the neighborhood. The place looks really nice inside, but the food is just mediocre. The last time
I had a steak, which was on the tough side. The mussels are a good choice, but the pizza could really be improved. We sat at the bar and waited for our table, it took a long time before we were waited on. It's a nice place to have drinks,
