Their beer menu is extensive. You will certainly find something you like if you can make a decision. Their food is excellent. The cream of crab is really spicey and delicious. I had the vegetable stacker which was spinach and cheese filled ravioli alternating with egg plant slices in between raviolis covered in a delicious sauce. My husband had a burger and fries which he thought was very good.
It has a nice atmosphere and friendly wait staff. Try it.

Went here with a Groupon. The food was excellent and so was the service. It was the first time we were here and it definitely deserves another trip. Enjoyed drinks and dinner

Historic inside and out. Food was fantastic - except the bread. I had the Tips and Toast - toast was plain white tasteless bread. Got the chocolate brownie and ice cream for desert - brownie was a dry cupcake. Otherwise dinner was perfect. Service was fantastic. And beer selection was awesome!

Family of 4 with drinks and deserts cost us $96 plus tip. But ambiance was great and will put this on special meal list. Only concern was bar is next to dining area so it may lose some of its charm. But a new favorite and nice break from chain restaurants.

This was our "go-to" place for special meals: excellent food and service, nice atmosphere, a "wow" beer selection, etc. But after our last dinner here in June, I think we'll be going down the road to the "other" popular place in town. The prices at Bully's were much higher this time than the last time we were there, about a year ago. One of our dinners was about 20% higher than last time. Spent about $160 for four people, two of whom were kids and ordered burgers, not full dinners. Not NYC prices, but not in keeping with most of this area. Food was still good, but the steak wasn't done to perfection as usual (maybe our disappointment in the higher prices affected our taste buds!). This place has always been on the pricey side for this area, but we always felt we got a decent value for the money. However, there are other area restaurants offering food as good or nearly so at far better prices. If we return for Bully's, it won't be for the full dinner menu. The "Lite Fare" selections will have to do--can't afford dinner there any longer!

Beautiful old bar and wonderful food. They offer a large selection of beer. The food was wonderful. Prices are a little high.
