“Good, homey food in a friendly atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

Right in the center of Fayetteville, this iconic restaurant has traditional, homey favorites and some newer American dishes. The portions are decent and the prices are reasonable. The seating and the bar are a bit cramped.

“Not great...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

Went on a busy Friday night and had to wait a bit for a table, which was no big deal. Salads were okay. My wife had the broiled scallops and shrimp. The shrimp were overdone and rubbery. I had breaded scallops. When they arrived they weren't done all the way through. I sent them back and waited a long time for them to come back. When they arrived it was the same plate with the same rice which had gotten cold. The scallops still weren't done. The waitress just said "sorry" and asked if we wanted dessert. Not really sure why the place is as busy as it is....

“Very good family restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

Hullar's is a family restaurant, in both senses of the phrase: it's family owned & run, and it's a good place to take your kids. It's a local institution, and deservedly so -- it has been around for decades, and every bit as good as it has ever been.

The menu has something for everyone (check them out online), with plenty of options for kids.

Expect it to busy (it almost always is), but they've always been able to accommodate us in a reasonable amount of time. Call ahead for larger groups, though.

“Server was Awesome with Kids”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

Have driven by here many times without realizing it was a restaurant but decided to try with the family. Small and pretty loud as others have said but our server (didn't catch his name) was so funny and great with the kids that we were happy to stay. Kids loved the burger and nuggets they had. Wife loved her salad and I had a sandwich on a weck which not being from New York had never had before (loved it btw). Will definitely go back to try some of the other food. They also had this cute treasure chest our server brought to our table at the end for our kids to pick a gift from. Thanks so much for the wonderful service!!

“Local Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

It is a favorite of locals and others that travel to enjoy the great food. It is located in the village of Fayetteville, N.Y.near the Fayetteville Fire Dept. A fine family place, pleasant surroundings and very good service.
