Drinks and appetizers with a friend. Drinks were good and stout. Atmosphere was really nice and staff were friendly. Will definitely go back. Had a great time.

Goes with the track. Been around forever, and so has the decor and the menu. An old favorite for many. Best if you want prime rib, a burger, or a beef sandwich with several cocktails. Very dark inside. Kind of like a speak easy...

This 1960s restaurant has kept the faith. The decor/ambiance is just like it was when Bully's first opened. This is not a place for vegans or for those who have red meat fears. This a full throttle place to get you "real meat" cravings out of the way. They have a full bar and the wine list is good. A... More

This is an affordable and comfortable restaurant. It is dark and friendly but the food is quite good. The split pea soup was delicious. The prime rib is excellent. The bread is warm.

First off the food and friendly service and old school charm brings me coming back to this location and the Mission Valley location. If you have read some of my reviews I am from San Diego & have been going back every few months for 17 years. I sold my house and was on a trip to celebrate my birthday... More

And dining at this establishment for a very long time and it's been pretty much consistent from day one. I love the prime rib it's nice and rare very hot horseradish and a decent potato. I really believe they need to add a large baked potato they give you a pretty small one . If they could do one thing... More

The prime rib place to go. This time-honored place has not changed since the 60s and it is still a full house on Saturdays. Good food, good wine, good ambiance.

Dinning with a large group of friends, 14, for dinner. The calamari appetizer was a large portion and very tasty. Good service, food was only average. I ordered Seared Scallops and received scallops in a light watery tomato sauce, taste was good but not seared as listed and the potatoes were cold . My friend ordered the prim rib, received... More
