For all the years we have gone to OC, I had never eaten at Bull on the Beach. This place was phenomenal. The Blue Plate Special hit the spot! My husband enjoyed his meal, the Open Pit Beef sandwich. He also enjoyed the crab soup...and oysters. The server was fabulous and I had asked for a small sample of the shrimp salad, which she brought out (needed more Old Bay IMO) in case I would like to order that in the future. The entire experience was a good one. Fast and friendly service, even in these days of covid. We really enjoyed our meal and will be back!More

Had not eaten at this location before, but are glade we stopped here. Looking at the menu of beef sandwiches made me want to order one of each. The food and service was actually fantastic. Ate out on the patio but they allowed 75 percent...indoor seating. The traffic is somewhat distraction but the food makes it worth while. We will be back to tackle the rest of that menu.More

Ok food. The food was ok. Sub par lacking flavor. Smelled great but flavorless. The loaded potato wedges were the best of the meal. Crab meat on top of the “award” winning pit beef lacked flavor in the meat. Crab cake was very good. Green...beans smelled great but again lacked flavor. Service was excellent and even after a bowl of green beans spilt on my wife the server and food runner were apologetic and brought out a larger size of green beans. All current COVID rules and advice is being followed.More

We always eat in or get take out when we are in OC. This time we got take out, which was a quick and painless process. We ordered a full rack of ribs, 2 crab cakes and 1 lb of shrimp with baked potatoes and...coleslaw. My wife and I shared this feast. Everything was very good and very filling.More

We enjoyed the food and interesting drinks very much. Nice server, friendly people. We sat outside and it was very pleasant. We went early, around 4:30 and it was already getting busy. Ordered the Pit Beef sandwiches, they came quickly and were so good. We...left there quite stuffed!More

We were in OC for the day and went to BOTB for a late lunch. We were seated and our meal came very fast. It was amazing. The only problem was the 10 people at the next table who thought they were at a playground....We could not even have a conversation. They were so loud and rude. We left fast. People at two other tables did the same thing. It's dad that they could ruin other people's experience.More

I was in the mood for a steak so decided to try it out since the reviews were different. We went around 6:30ish and the wait was about 10 minutes. We asked for a table outside. Our waitress, Lucy was very friendly and come to...find out it was her first day working there. She did a great job. We ordered mussels, crab dip, the house steak with string beans and a baked potato, and the shrimp basket for my daughter. The crab dip was just ok. I’m used to really creamy crab dip and this was just different. The bread it came with was very good. I ate the dip but wouldn’t order it again. The mussels were small and it only came with a small cup of butter with garlic at the bottom. I like my mussels tossed in the garlic butter or tossed in a creamy garlic sauce with bread to dip in the sauce but wasn’t the case. I ate them but wouldn’t order again. I should have gotten the ribeye or sirloin because although the steak was seasoned nicely, it was tough. The string beans were VERY good. I would order them again in a heartbeat. My daughter’s shrimp was very good. I would probably try them again but with so many other restaurants to try, maybe I’d try something new.More

Tried Bull On The Beach because it was close to our condo to walk and get takeout. The seafood feast for two was good, but with only 3 clams and 3 oysters in it, it really wasn't enough for two people. Fries were fine, steak...salad was fine...nothing really jumped out as amazing. The place seemed crowded and obviously does a good business, for us though, there are other places where the food was amazing...More

The wait was pretty fast food was delicious. The service could have been better we had to wait a long time for our drinks from the bar and we had to ask more then 2 times for silverware to eat

Just enjoyed a fantastic dinner with my family. Front hostess friendly. Waitress “Mel” was awesome. Very friendly! Food was delicious. We even ordered wrong soup and they changed it for us no charge. Just great evening. I recommend for everyone!
