Bulls & Bears Restaurant


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2017, 2019 Winner

Location and contact

Formerly Tristate Electrical Supply, the building was a quintessential landmark of the Hagerstown Commercial Core Historic District. During late 19th century, Downtown Hagerstown became the leading producer of furniture, organs and other products. This economic boom was caused by total redevelopment and transformation of the downtown commercial area during that period. As a major railroad center, Hagerstown maintained a stable economic situation during the Great Depression. Bulls and Bears was opened in the fall of 2008 by Jone and Don Bowman. After purchase of the building, no stone was left unturned to return the building to it's original luster through years of labor.

This place is awesome. The portions were huge. I had the meatloaf it was incredible. Our waitress was awesome. She took care of all 35 people without any help. I was here with a group of roughly 35 people. We learned about Multiple Sclerosis.

It's a business casual environment with stock market them. Been there a few times and the burgers are really good. Definitely worth a try.

We returned after several months, this time for dinner prior to a show at the Maryland theatre. The restaurant is under new management now. The food was so much better and the service as well. We’ll be back soon.
