Have been here twice. A limited menu, but very good. A bit noisy, so ask for back dining room. Prices are reasonable. Enjoyed our waiter.

This place does not present a very pretty facade, but it is well worth a visit. We were seated promptly, and our server, Michael, was friendly and attentive. The food was outstanding, and the prices reasonable. We will be back!

Fun atmosphere, great food and the best bartenders! We love this place! Be sure try the shrimp appetizer! Desserts are yummy! Go early and get a seat at the bar. Guaranteed to meet interesting locals

Great local hot spot. Great for socializing and winding down from long day in the low country. The service, drinks and food are among the best in the area.

Visited Beaufort, SC and ate at the Old Bull Tavern twice. The food is great and atmosphere is eclectic, but you need reservations because it is always busy. I got pizza the first night and softshell crab the second - WOW, the best softshell crab since New Orleans. The pizza was great also. The best restaurant in Beaufort, SC

We go to Old Bull about every 2 months and it never disappoints. Make a reservation. If you want quiet, ask for the middle room. Want to be in the action, sit in the front/bar area. If the weather is nice, sit on the back patio. Good selection of on-tap beer and wine. Get the Troublemaker if you like red... More

First off, if you like your cocktails slightly tart, I recommend the Orient Express. It was so refreshing to have a citrus cocktail that hadn't been simple-syruped to death. They also make a decent Sazerac. We walked in, tourists, in fairly early evening and every table was full. The noise level was high but not obnoxious. We were greeted soon... More

While visiting Beaufort, my uncle highly recommend this place. It was everything he said it would be. The food is outstanding and the Owner and Staff are very friendly and make you feel like they have known you forever. The prices are spot on but, the portions could be a little bigger. They have a great selection of beer, both... More
