On a whim we decided to go to Bullys on Union. We were very pleasantly surprised. You don't have to get dressed up to go to Bullys, but it's not a dive by any stretch. We loved the tin ceiling and the bar area. My father & boyfriend were very pleased to see Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin and a couple other microbrews on draft. We didn't get any apps, but for dinner my mother & I had the Bangers & Mash. I usually prefer a more savory sausage, but the apple-ish sausage was so fresh and delicious I didn't mind at all. I thought the onion gravy was a little too sweet considering how sweet the sausage was, but it was still very good and went well with the garlic mashed potatoes. My father had the Theodore Chicken which was a chicken breast with crab and bernaise. He said it was really good and a nice balance between the chicken & crab. My bf had the quesadilla (it was TexMex night) and he said it was good. We really enjoyed our meal and our server was awesome. We'll definitely be back.

Found while traveling. The scores tell the story. Bar selections clearly spelled out on supplemental menus.

we were a large family group (17) looking for a decent place to eat in lancaster area (and don't want to get suckered into those commercialized amish eat-fests). Bully's was fabulous. They had a little room set aside for us (and when we called, we only gave them 3 days notice). 2 excellent servers takong care of us. The food was excellent (no pickled watermelon rinds here) - good and flavorful steak, seafood, pasta dishes -- excellent beer choices, etc. etc. -- they made our family weekend a little more special as we all walked away raving about the food and service....
