Diner Reviews
  • "Our dinner Saturday night at Bully's East was amazing, as always. Jeannie is our usual server and she took outstanding care of us. I had a bun-less Bully Burger with cheddar cheese and bacon. It was fabulous. Jim had the pot roast with a baked potato, and he loved it. All if all, it was a great dining experience. We love Bully's East and will definitely be back many times in the future."

  • "Be careful where you are seated. If you are opposite the bar on a busy night, you have the backsides of standing patrons to stare at. If you get seated in the back of the room, that is in the easternmost portion of the dining room, you have every waitperson going to and from the kitchen going past your table, along with everyone going to the men's and ladies rooms. And, if you happen to be seated facing east, as I was, you have bright glaring lights from the kitchen to deal with."

  • "Had a good dining experience before the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers concert at SDSU. Excellent carrot-ginger soup and King Crab legs. Service was good, especially the hostess who answered questions well regarding local transportation. Friendly crowd."

  • "Bully's used to be such a great value and reliably great food. The last 5 times I have gone, I keep asking myself why I keep trying. It's not good anymore. Very mediocre. I won't be going back."

  • "Food was good. Waitress was great but drink and food orders took a while and didn't seem too busy. Drinks were good. I will try them again for lunch or to watch a game."

  • "Great Indian dishes to select from. The food was delicious. The atmosphere was quiet an comfy. At one point the owner came to our table and inquired about our dishes as he cleaned off the table. He expressed how he likes to be hands-on in his business and interact with the customers. He was a very humble guy. He even personally made us more naan when my husband expressed that our's was a little crispier than what we are used to. The owner also threw in a special side dish for me made with spinach and Indian cheese. My only complaint would be some of our silverware was a little dirty, but we switched them for some clean ones. Great place to eat and get away from the busy Vegas strip."

  • "The food was very good--I'm not a beef eater but had a wonderfully cooked piece of salmon. The service was very friendly and we didn't wait long for our food. This restaurant was recommended to me by a bartender in a San Diego Hotel, and it was a good recommendation. I enjoyed this restaurant very much."

  • "Bully's is great for steaks and prime rib but this time we opted for sandwiches. The prime rib sandwich was really good! Thinly sliced prime rib with melted cheese. Served with au jus. Yum! Waitress was speedy although one in our group had problems getting her drink from the bar waitress. Marked down for the noise level because I requested a quieter table and we were put in a room that would have been quiet except for the dinner meeting going on in the room next to us. Never disappointed with Bully's food."

  • "We enjoyed our visit but there were a few things that could use improvement. The service was good with the exception of our drink orders. Initially my vodka/water was extremely weak. I couldn't even taste the vodka. She fixed that for me. In between drink orders we waited quite a while and then the return with the drinks took too long. As for the food, mostly it was good. My side salad left a lot to be desired and the veggies were overcooked."

  • "Server was very nice; however, quality of service was lost on her (and everyone else w/I observation). This place is "known for their prime rib"; however, I make a much better tasting prime rib in my back yard."

  • "Always great service, and the prime rib is excellent, we always go for the early bird meal. Everything is prepared fresh and hot, you are never hurried or pressured to purchase anything extra...ie desert, or cocktails."

  • "Two couples dined here. The server was friendly and competent. Three meals were excellent, the 4th disappointing. My friend ordered what was supposed to be an 18 oz. ribeye, but it was small, thin and over cooked. Appeared to be almost exactly the same size as the 8 oz. prime rib his wife had! He then ordered lava cake for dessert. and he and his wife both said it was dry and stale. The waitress deleted it from the bill. I ordered keoke coffe for dessert and it came room temperature instead of hot. It was sent back to be rewarmed. My lobster and my wife's filet were excellent. I have been coming here about 35 years and this experience was not up to the standards we expect."

  • "The food is great! It really needs work on atmoshpere. I kinda don't get the decor, is it sports, western, or just plain old fashion trying to go romantic? It is way too dark inside. Might need to clean better? Maybe that is why it is so dark? Other then how the Ambience portrays...I guess the food makes up for that?"

  • "service was slow for not being that busy. food took a long time to get out to us. ordered my food and received two wrong sides, but the sides i did received were still good. i did not send back because the side i did get i still liked. seemed like they were short staffed?"

  • "Bully's seated us at our reservation time on Father's Day, however, their kitchen was so backed up, that we did not even have our appetizers after waiting one and one half hours for them, little less the food we ordered. They did serve us drinks and bread and the waitress was very nice, apologizing about the food wait. I have never had this experience at Bully's. The situation caused the "father" to loose patience and we had to leave."

  • "Went there for lunch with 6 people. The service was very slow and lots of mistakes. Had to ask for water 4 times. Other tables were having the same problems - lots of mistakes with their orders and slow service. The open face prime rib sandwich was a just a slab of meat on a piece of bread. Nothing else! The prime rib melt was just roast beef in between 2 pieces of bread and a small slice of barely melted cheese. We asked for grilled mushrooms on it and got 3 whole steamed mushrooms on the side. The clam chowder was really cream of potato soup. The fried large shrimp lunch was cooked so long the shrimp were black."

  • "I was first introduced to Bulleys East in 1986 - Was great food then and remains awesome to day. Best prime rib dinners ever - Steaks & seafood are also awesome. Will always visit Bulleys when I'm in town now visiting. Great for intimate dinner out or family groups too. Well appointed bar and great service."

  • "Fantastic Everything about our dining experience was superb. Everyone there was very experienced and very helpful. The prime rib was served exactly the way we ordered. The calamari appetizer was great cooked to perfection. My wife and I were celebrating Our 37th wedding anniversary and the whole evening was great. If 10 stars were possible I would give a 20. We definitely will be coming back. "
