We were driving through and via the wonders of modern technology we looked for lodging. The food was great, the beer selection worthy of a big city with fascinating beers from all over the world and when we had eaten and drunk to our hearts content we climbed the stairs to a sparkling clean, well appointed hotel room. The owner has clearly put his heart into the place.

We decided to go to Bully's after tasting their crab soup at the Taste of Lancaster County in mid-April. (plus they gave us a coupon : ) We heard good things about the restaurant and the reviews and pictures intrigued us.
What a great place to eat! The service was excellent and the food was outstanding, including the crab soup that brought us there in the first place. My husband had seafood mac & cheese and I had soup and salad and we shared a slice of red velvet cake for dessert. Everything was delicious! Its a fun place for couples and we plan to come back with friends!

This is the best upscale pub restaurant in Lancaster. The filet mignon and crab is to die for. The beer selection on tap is amazing. The service over the many years and multiple times I've been here has been outstanding. The owner is very involved and obviously takes pride in Bully's. You've got to go there, you will not be disappointed

Just returned from our third trip to the pub. As usual the meal was excellent and we really enjoy the ability to order beers that we have tasted in our travels throughout Europe. The pub's atmosphere is great and we feel at home no matter what we are wearing (dress or jeans). The wait staff is very friendly and helpful. Don't let the location sway you from experiencing the menu and great selection of beers.. FYI the Martini's are good too!

Ate here years ago, and it's better now than what we remembered. Tracey provided good service. Drink prices seem a tad high for this town. Met friends here, and all of us enjoyed our meals. Ample portion size. One of us thought that the chair was uncomfortable. We'll go back.
