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.

Completely restored railroad hotel built in 1903. Operating as a full-service Inn & Restaurant, Bully's has been described by many as one of the best-kept secrets in Lancaster & York. The Inn has 11 well appointed rooms all with private baths, iron beds, flat screen TV's, & WIFI. Great for weddings, long-term business stays & Get-a-way weekend specials. The Restaurant & Pub boast a hand-carved oak bar, tin ceilings & jazz music in the background. With over 200 different bottles to choose from we have one of the largest and finest selections of micro, craft, and import beers around that carter to the true beer connoisseur. We also offer fine wines & spirits with one of the best "Back" bars around, including an excellent selection of Single Malt Scotch, Bourbon Whiskey, fine Cognac, Brandy, Ports, & Sherry. Our American-style cuisine has been dubbed, “Upscale Casual” comfort food with a twist which includes a wide variety of light fare, soups, distinctive entrees, and fine desserts. Open Mon-Fri at 4:00 pm for dinner, Sat 1-4 pm for lunch and 4-pm for dinner. Closed Sundays.
