We have gone here in the past for lunch and dinner but this year we only went for the Sunday morning breakfast buffet. It was a lot busier this year- we had to wait for at least 15 minutes and never had to wait before. As usual, there was a huge variety of foods to choose from. If you leave... More

Fried Haddock was the best I have ever eaten. Went for soup and salad bar at lunch another day and the salad bar is truly great. You need... More

Soup and salad bar is excellent. There are three choices of soup, hot buns straight out of the oven and a multitude of offerings at the salad bar. Great food, attentive staff and a relaxing atmosphere. Who could ask for more?

This place is horrible! To many things to complain about! The service, the food, the Bloody Mary were all horrible! Do not waste your time. Keep driving past or try the diner across the street.

Went for a simple Mothers Day Breakfast as Bull and Claw has a half-decent Breakfast Buffet with a nice omelette station. The problem arose when we stood in line and ordered our omelettes and the station cook used his bare hands to add the ingredients to our omelettes. No gloves, no utensils - bare hands in each container of ingredients.... More

They advertised senior specials for dinner in a local paper and when we asked about them the waitress told us that was for lunch only.

jag462014, the advertisement stated that it was for lunch only. Our waitstaff doesn't have the authority to extend the coupons to any meal. We hope you'll come join us for lunch in order to enjoy the discounted pricing. Best, Daryl T, Owner since 1973 More
