“Creative Eating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Have been to Bull Branch several times over the past 2 years, and have never been disappointed. The menu is not overly varied, but there are always a few items that pique our interest and the chef is pretty creative. The place itself is a little shabby around the edges, and the brick walls, concrete ceilings and tightly placed tables make it a little noisy, but not unbearably so.

“Has potential, really need update seating, interior and menu”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012 via mobile

This place is trying itself as eclectic and gets no where near. Food is all across the board from pulled pork to trout. Pork was less than average and trout was just ok. Side dishes are almost no visible for s quantity standpoint. We thought it was eggplant. House wine is a disaster. Tasted like pure vinegar and sent the first glass back. Reasonable prices if were good. Five of us ate here and no one impressed..

We have been to this restaurant often and the experience is always very good with an eclectic menu and staff. You will not be disappointed by the dining experience.

“Tucked away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012 via mobile

Ate here with a friend last night. Had the Egyptian appetizer - excellent! The hummus was delicious. Thai green curry shrimp for entree - also excellent! Server wasn't quite as attentive as she could have been after the food was served. Overall the experience was a good one. Would definitely go back again to try something different. They had the doors open and it was a little humid last night. Hope they run the AC in the hotter months.
