“less tha expected”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

We tried this restaurant based on a impulse. It became a mistake. The service was slow, the salad limp and food was old. We will not return. I have told ours about our experience and they said they has similar problems. None of them stated they would return.

“Poor Service!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

I have been to The Bull & Claw 3 times in the last couple of months, and received poor service two out of three times. The food was good, however, the waitress on two occasions never came back to offer more coffee. We had to ask for it. In our last visit, an error was made in one of the orders. Although we were not charged more for the mixup, the other orders had a chance to cool off before we were served.

“One word - NO”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

The lunch and dinner menu looks good but the food is not good at all. Sunday Breakfast buffet was marginally better. Almost as good as the free hot breakfast at most chain hotels. atmosphere is dark and dingy and the service was never anything to rave about any of the times I have visited. Never much of a crowd either except for breakfast buffet.

“What a Party!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2013

The Bull and Claw was the perfect location to host a cozy and comfortable 60th anniversary for 50 of our closet friends and family members. The menu had options for all pallets, young and old. The waitstaff was very accommodating and our guests enjoyed the home style atmosphere of the restaurant. Our out of state relatives highly complimented the restaurant. We recommend the Bull and Claw for a party or for a night out. We want to emphasize that the waitstaff went out of their way to make the day special for all of us. Many thanks to The Bull and Claw for helping us celebrate 60 years of happiness!!!

“Out for Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

Large menu to choose from with nightly specials, they also have a basic salad bar. Our meal was fine, kind of an old style family type place, service was sweet but gone for too long. I understand why people go back, good portions for reasonable price.
