Great Restaurant in Restored Downtown

Visiting from Florida. Had late lunch with family (13 people). Ambiance is great with the restoration of the old building downtown. We were seated in the outer area. Initial service by waiter was timely. Food served at proper temperature. Unfortunately, after initial service, the restaurant... read more

Bulls and Bears is so special that we had our wedding and baby shower there. The food was great. The servers were wonderful, and the arrangements to plan it were professional and fit our expectations. The crab cakes are my favorite, and the bartender even made a signature drink for the wedding. I've never been disappointed for the Mother's Day... More

We have been here 3 times once hosting a company Holiday party, Mothers Day Brunch and Thanksgiving Day! All 3 time the food was first rate and the service as well.

Bulls and Bears is a local restaurant for us and is one of the best in town. The food is always good and the service is great! Bartender Zack is one of the nicest guys we've ever met and is great at his job! Whether you're a local or just passing through town, you can't go wrong making a stop... More

Came here with a large group. I was impressed by the atmosphere. Unfortunately, that's about all that was impressive. The menu was limited and items were expensive. The food was average at best, and the service was poor. A few of the people in my party ordered the crab cakes ($26) and found they were all filler and barely any... More

We went here to check out their private rooms and food for a function of 50. Six of us went to dinner at 8:30 on a Sat. Night. There were 4 other tables of guests having dinner. I saw 3 wait staff. I think anyone would expect good service. After ordering our drinks I ask the server about seeing the... More

I've been to Bulls and Bears several times over the years and it's always been a reliable place to go. Although I haven't found the entrees to be "thrilling", I like to go there for the classics: crab cakes, steak, etc. The beer selection is fine and the service has always been good. I also like the comfortable atmosphere.

Of the several times I've eaten at this restaurant, I've only had good service on one occasion. The past two times I've been there, I've eaten outside. It wasn't crowded, and we didn't have to wait to be seated. One of the tables was occupied by smokers so that was a bit annoying. The pasta dish I had was just... More
