Bully's is a Del Mar corner landmark for over 30 years. It's the local "Cheers" bar with pub grub. I can recommend the Nachos.

The restaurant is a oldie but a goodie. Have visited it many times when in the Del Mar area. The service is excellent and the food always the best.

We have been stopping by Bully's for years when in Del Mar. It has been at this same location for 47 years. Great food, drinks. Just a comfortable place to be. The "regulars" are friendly and welcoming. During this recent visit we sat at the bar and my husband struck up a conversation with a gentleman who has been coming... More

Seven of us went to Bully's for dinner last week. It was recommended by a colleague who had been to Bully's many times before and he also joined us last week. Apparently they are famous for prime rib, ribs, steaks, and burgers. I ordered their Bully burger with cheddar cheese and sauteed mushroom with skinny fries. I ordered it well... More

This place hasn't changed in 50 years! I'm not sure there is an older continuously running drinking/eating establishment in Del Mar? If you want to get a taste of the bygone, sleepy little beach village of Del Mar, step into history and order a drink.

Wow, what a good Bloody Mary. And we were there on a Sunday and it was only $4.00. Brian was a really nice bartender. The Bloody Mary even had Prime Rib in it! We didn't have a chance to dine here, but if we could have we would have.

My husband loves prime rib --so we ordered the prime rib for 2. It was huge! I took my little piece and he ate all the rest. We loved every bite. We usually don't have desert but it was our wedding anniversary. Try the ice cream praline pie--but be forewarned it is huge,,

The service was quick and entertaining! The food was excellent and the beer was cold. You can sit at the bar or in the comfortable booths. I recommend the burger, it was delicious! It is a quick walk to the beach from here or the Les Artistes Hotel.
