My wife and I ate here on her birthday. Food was very good!! Prices seemed very fair, service was good. We had the duck confit, the lamb shank and the angus tenderloin. All were good my favorite was the duck.

Outstanding drinks served by formally clad bartenders that know their way around the bar! The food is gourmet and succulent. It is "the place" for a special occasion. Seats at the bar are always at a premium. They have table service as well, along with a huge couch in the front and a "Bull" over the bar! Perfect for that... More

We found The Old Bull Lnn on one of our Beaufort visits. We than had dinner with friends on another visit. The atmosphere is unique and the food is excellent. Also the cocktail selections are not your average. If you want to be a little adventurous, I would highly recommend!

Great place for a drink and food. Get a seat at the bar or at the couches at the entrance. Great local hang out.

It's always nice to have a new restaurant to visit in Beaufort. I'd read great reviews about the Old Bull Tavern so thought we would give it a shot while in town for the 4th. We reserved a table a couple of weeks in advance. When we got there they had trouble finding the reservation but seated us anyway, which... More

We went on a Friday night and you definitely needed a reservation, it was jammed to the gills. The food and wine were excellent, my friend had the margarita and said it was great. The only reason i didnt give it 5 stars is because it gets pretty loud, but overall, a great dinner spot!

You know you're about to enter someplace different when the only identifying signage is a small piece of paper on the door. Although you can't see in through the blackened windows, open the door to see the restaurant/bar busy with happy patrons. We were lucky to get to seats at the bar since we had no reservations. The service was... More
