“"ran out of" alcohol during Winterfest ?”
Review of Bull & Bear Pub - CLOSED

How does a bar run out of alcohol during a festival? That is what we were told when we entered with our pre-paid tickets today. Mind you the place was packed with people paying for other drinks and food. The Winterfest organizers said "they do this ever year".

Horrible business practice.

Avoid this place. Go anywhere else. The Empire Brewing company had the best drinks today so check them out instead.

Good place for burgers, reubens (traditional and turkey), soup and sandwiches, salads, and other pub food. But it seems like we always encounter some kind of minor service problem there. Yesterday at lunch, the waitress silently plunked down our bill two minutes after dropping off our entrees, then vanished. Never offered us coffee or dessert (both of which we would've ordered), never checked back to see how we were enjoying the meal, never thanked us for our business. Kinda typical for B&B and it's too bad. With better staff training and maybe more of a manager presence in the dining room, especially turing the critical business-lunch period, this place has the potential to earn a better-than-average rating.

If you want to carry on a conversation, not the best place to go. If you like mediocre cover bands, however, you would be in heaven.

Solid above-average pub fare, good beer.
