We ate here twice on our recent trip and enjoyed both occasions. The atmosphere is older but kind of charming. Service was very good and very friendly. Wine and beer selection is good. Basically good food at a reasonable price. Recommended.

After a great day fishing on Loon Lake, hungry and exhausted, I went to Chestertown to have dinner at the Bullhouse on the advice of Nick at the DEC boat launch. Thanks Nick. Sometimes that's all you need, an appetizer a couple of craft beers to polish off a memorable day. I would have stayed longer and drank myself comfortably... More

We had dinner with our three kids. The appetizers (mozzarella, potato skins) and entrees (steak sandwich, steak; kids: salad, tacos, and quesadillas) were good. We did not have dessert. Service was friendly but slow, even with a light crowd and what seemed like a full staff. The restaurant was clean, nicely decorated, and comfortable. We were there for about 90... More

While the service was reasonably good my Rib Eye steak was mediocre at best. Presentation was bland and the steak lacked any seasoning. A little more then 1/2 thick for $30.00 a definite disappointment. As a local I would be coming back quickly.

Oh my, their burgers and hand cut fries are GREAT! And so was our server! He immediately ordered for our little one, and brought some chips and fresh salsa for the table. He was attentive, but not overbearing. We all really enjoyed our dinner!

Limited menu with a South American flair. But if you want steak, this is the place to go. The table side guacamole was terrific.
