Our family group of 5 thoroughly enjoyed this older place with a well chosen menu, lots of perfectly done choices such as tenderloin, duck breast and such. Great bar drinks as well!

Big city restaurant in a small city. This place has excellent food, service and prices. Wife really likes the salmon. The pate is very good. Portions are just right. I think that I've had everything on the menu and it has all been delicious.

Every visit we've made to the Old Bull Tavern, I've ordered the Lamb Shank and my husband ordered the Salmon. Both were cooked to perfection. My best treat was the Orient Express cocktail. Worth the drive.

Saturday night date with my sweetie: we loved the service and the lively bar crowd but the food was the real star. We truly enjoyed the blackeye pea hummus, winemaker's salad, steak tenderloin & grilled pork chop. We did our best to finish the tiramisu,...More

I came here with my parents while on vacation in the area. They had been before and were raving about how cool it was and how great the food was. I thought they might have been hyping it up too much but all their praise...More
