My husband and I love coming here when its cooler because we enjoy a good original whiskey sour! The bartenders are great and know exactly what we want when we walk in! Thanks for being a great little bar!

The lamb shank was absolutely amazing. If I could have this as a meal every single day - I would. This is a must when in the Beaufort area.

The menu is much more extensive and sophisticated than expected. Service was good and this popular spot fills early, so make a reservation.

Loved the energy and the food. Walked through an old English phone booth to get to the second section of the restaurant. Loved that! Sat right at the dining bar and watched the chef make pizzas right in front of us. Loved it AND the pizza was GREAT!

What a pleasant post Thanksgiving meal we had at the Old Bull Tavern as a family! I had read numerous reviews and descriptions but was still surprised at the depth of the chef's creativity. We shared bruschetta, wasabi deviled eggs, tavern cheese, and several desserts. All were outstanding!! Entrees included pasta, beef tenderloin, and a beautiful margarita pizza for the... More

What a great place for drinks, dinner & dessert! We sat outside on the patio - great pre-dinner drinks. The handmade gnocchi melted in your mouth. Dessert - vanilla cream filled toffee tart was just the perfect ending. Our server Bennet was poetic with his descriptions, provided great service and awesome recommendations. Definitely will visit this place when I return... More

A very popular and casual restaurant with an upscale menu. Service was knowledgeable and not "rushed". Rather noisy and not a children's restaurant

We visited last week and it was very busy on a Tuesday night. Disappointed that Matthew was not here, but service was great. We all ordered pizza and the wood-fired variety here was excellent. Our favorite since they opened...

As this was our last night in Beaufort we decided to have a good meal at the old bull tavern. It got good reviews and the place was almost packed when we got there on Tuesday night. Reception was good and we were guided to our table. When I was about to sit down one of the waitresses dropped a... More
