I was there on business trip to Safe Harbour..Found this place in google maps..Spoke to owner of the Inn who was very welcoming..Stayed there for 5 days...Well maintained,decorated rooms. Nice food in the pub...The morning breakfast is free and we have to walk across the street for the cakes, which are really awesome.

Relaxing environment, delicious and generous food. Bacon wrapped scallops, duck rolls, and BBQ ribs are not to be missed.

My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at Bully's. I notice right away that the cleanliness was excellent and the atmosphere very pleasant. The menu had an appropriate number of selections, indicating to me that they would prepare and present an excellent meal. I wasn't disappointed. I ordered the Kona Tenderloin and it was delicious. They use local natural... More

Bully's is a reason to come to Columbia, along with the Kettle Works. We've been to Bully's a few times in the past year and are always happy with the menu items and especially the specials. Great drink selections, friendly staff, and really good desserts.

I took a bus full of people there for lunch and everyone raved about their meal. We had a choice of crab cakes, prime rib or chicken. We were served a salad, the main course and them a wonderful dessert of key lime mousse with granola.

After reading other reviews, we were really excited to try Bully's. It did not live up to the hype. Our app was great (NZ mussels), but the duck confit and ribs were just okay. I still would have given 4 stars, except half way through our meal our server seemed to mentally check out. We waited forever to see the... More

We ate here because of Tripadvisor reviews and were not disappointed. The beer menu was extensive and came with a "bible" full of information and suggestions. Soup was unusual and delicious. We had Bangers and Mash and Chicken Sandwich both of which were great. We finished it off with ice cream. The caramel was outstanding - the chocolate boch was... More

Now this is a great local pub. Everything is just how I would do it myself. From the never ending beer list, to the great appetizers to the main meal it all has the "come on in sit down and spend some time" feel. Always excellent staff that is very accommodating. One of my "go too" spots for a good... More

The restaurant is only open from 4PM on.... but it's worth the wait. Service is excellent, the menu varied, and the quality of the food has to be tried to believe.
