Overall bad/disappointing experience Service was lacking and mechanical. Food quality was fifty percent. Dinner for 4 and 2 were good 2 were poor! Despite the fact it is a steakhouse the steaks were the worst. Tough and not properly cooked. Duck was quite good. Wine selection was poor. After first bottle no more was available. Neither was second and third choice. Very disappointing.

Great steak and creamed spinach. Some side dishes were VERY salty (and I like salt!). Service was so so.

We happened upon Fulton's one evening. Our waiter was one of the best we have ever had. The food was wonderful and the banana cream pie is to die for!

I would have thought for the money this place would have been better, ordered a plate for 2 and I had to ask for another plate and serving spoons. The food was Ok but I would not go back.

My husband and I had a great 12th anniversary dinner at Fultons. I read many of the reviews saying great view, food and service were not so great, etc. BUT, I disagree. We had a very attentive and friendly waiter and we had delicious food. The price can be a turn off, but if it is a special occassion then go ahead and splurge, it is worth it!
