Came to bully's for my dad's birthday dinner. I was surprised to see that the menu not only had the prime rib they are famous for, but a wide range of options. Oysters, salmon, tequila shrimp pasta and even a calamari sandwich to name a few! I couldn't pass up the oyster shooters to start off my meal, complete with a shot of pepper vodka on top. The oysters were so fresh and I thought the idea to include it as a cocktail was really interesting. I had to order the prime rib - I was told by the waitress that it was the best prime rib in San Diego... And can honestly say that it was the best piece of meat I have ever had. I could cut it with my fork and it melted in my mouth. The corn off the cob was delectable and unique. It was tossed with cilantro, red peppers, and white cotija cheese - a different combination than I've had at other places. The portions were generous and the atmosphere was vintage and fun, very family oriented. I even saw the owner there with his kids enjoying dinner. Their specialty cocktail for the month was a Pumpkin Pie Martini and it was such a delicious dessert that I couldn't stop at just one! :) I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of the meal, and the staff was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. I don't know how you could give Bully's anything but 5 stars. I will definitely be back soon to conquer the rest of the menu!!
Came here about a week ago for my girlfriends birthday dinner I helped put together. When we arrived Bully’s had everything set up for us with the flowers and cake we had left a couple hours before hand. We loved the new room and additions they made to the restaurant! It was great that we had the option to separate our rowdy guests away from the rest of the place to really have a great time and not disturb the other patrons. I ordered an antioxidant martini which was wonderful and full of flavor and my girlfriend had a Captain Shaddocks Margarita that was tangy and delicious! As far as my entrée, I ordered a petite filet with a side of asparagus and a baked potato. The steak was cooked to medium rare like I had ordered and was full of flavor. The service was fantastic and everything came out on time in a pretty well timed out fashion. When Elaine brought the cake out with all the candles she even started everyone off with the classic birthday song which was so cute and fit in with our lively group of people which was entertaining. All in all, our experience was great and they did such an exceptional job at helping me put together a wonderful celebration!
Top five reasons why I love Bully's East: 1. The prime rib. It has yet to be beaten in a test of tastes. Not to mention, that it is always perfectly cooked to any temperature I or my co-guests request. Seriously, try it. 2. The variety--I love that I can come here with any kind of diet restricted companion, and their needs are met! Low carb? Easy-get the steak. Vegetarian? Try their salads. So. Yummy. Pescatarian? The option of a locally caught fresh piece of fish is hard to beat!3. The drinks! Every bartender I've witnessed mixing drinks up there are definitely pros. Order a martini and I promise it will be chilled perfectly, not too strong, and will leave you smiling! 4. It's family owned! How can you not love that? From the get go this restaurant leaves you feeling that you'll be taken care of, because that's how the owners would want their family taken care of. Odds are, no matter what time of day you're in there, you can probably find one of the owners and family hanging out and talking to customers. 5. The servers! The waitresses are awesome, always accommodating and eager to see smiles put on their customer's faces.
Came into Bully's a few days ago and was even more impressed then before. Bully's is an old school place and recently went through a remodel. There used to be an enclosed patio but now it's fully closed in and connects to the rest of the restaurant. They have beautiful dark wood brand new tables and really nice flat screen TVs everywhere. When I was handed the menu, I noticed it was updated too. I asked the server if the menu had all been revised and she said it was all the same menu just different format. She then pointed out the wine and cocktail list. Bully's has crafted a brand new cocktail and martini list! I ordered the "Little Pepino" martini which was Hendricks gin, lemon, orange and mint-cucumber jalapeno syrup. Delicious!!! All of their syrups are house made too. My friend got the "Greshum" cocktail and that was really good too. It was vodka, raspberries, lime, simple syrup, balsamic, and topped with ginger beer. Needless to say you have to come in and try these new drinks! And of course the food is always awesome.
After reading the reviews I thought this would be a great place for my family to have a Steak. Thinking it was family friendly and at a reasonable cost. After circling the block a few times we found a quaint place, with a western theme out front. When we walked in there was a bar to the left and butcher shop to the right. We sat down and soon noticed we were out of place. Not kid friendly at all. Prices for a steak averaged 35-60.00 a plate. We ordered salads as to not look silly, but we are small town teachers and a 60.00 new york steak was notnin our budget. Salads were 12.00 a plate and small, not really worth it. Staff was rude because we didnt order more, but hey we all know teachers DO NOT get paid that much. Good date/anniversary super dress up place...I guess
Recently I had a chance to get back into Bully’s East. The usual aromas of cooking food, and fresh tap beer were in the air. This time there was something different. As you walk in, the smell of fresh wood and lacquer mixed in with the usual aromas. The restaurant had done some remodeling to their patio area and another room for dining. It looks very modern and appealing to sit in. I chose to sit on the patio and enjoy a piece of prime-rib. The new televisions and tables made it nice and cozy to enjoy my meal, a beer, and the Master’s golf tournament. This might be my new place for sports watching! The food is always great and the changes they’ve made really show the pride they have in their food and service. Thanks again Bully’s, I’ll be back!
"The food at Bully's East Restaurant appears simple, but the flavors have remarkable depth. Bully's East Restaurant is known best for its Prime Rib, and the reputation is well deserved. I tried for appetizer the Baked Brie, if you are a cheese lover you got to try it, it melts in your mouth, and the apple gives a nice finish taste to it. The atmosphere is very European with the wood furniture, love all the famous sport pictures on the wall for decoration, and nice to Dine in clean restaurant! Good to see the staff work as a Team, we did not have to wait ever if we want to asked for something from are waitress, we were just asked what we want from another waitress, and got it wright away! I know I'll certainly be returning soon."
Last night my husband wanted to go to dinner for his bday so he chose Bullys East. It has been a little while since we've been in. We were shocked with the changes! (in a good way) It seems like the whole front of the restaurant was re-modeled. I love the old-school vibe that Bullys has always had but the new re-model has givin it a new and old-school look. I've always known Bullys to be a dark restaurant but the new front room which they now call the "field" is surrounded with windows! It was such a nice change! Of course the food and service is always amazing... But if you haven't been in a while you have to check out the new Bullys! It's awesome!!!
Nothing bad could be said about this place. On a Tuesday night in all my friends came to celebrate my birthday and it was the most fantastic night ever. The bartender was super cool, and took great care of us. Everything we ordered was hearty, yummy! The prime rib was outa this world and makes me salivate just thinking about it! We also had some killer oyster, and the most amazing bacon wrapped shrimp, and then rounded out the night with a great crème brulee. Every was amazing, and it was also really nice that we didn’t get any grief for bringing our own birthday cake. I can’t wait till next year to celebrate my birthday there again!
Went for the prime rib and was talked into the salmon by my server (Rachel, who was great, by the way). I know they’re a steakhouse, but that was one of the best pieces of fish I have had in a long time. Don’t even remember the killer sauce, the fish was that GREAT!!! In and out in a jif. I only had an hour for lunch and still had time to hit Starbucks before returning to work. Oh yeah, nice touch… the soup is posted on Facebook daily, thanks to Jerry (their marketing dude). I ALWAYS visit when it’s Cream of Mushroom-THE BEST IN TOWN!!!!
