Diner Reviews
  • "One of my favorite places for prime rib. Ordered with the horseradish crust, baked potatoes and vegetable. Overall, a very good experience (again). "

  • "I went to Bully's for lunch. It happened to be on a day when the Lyons Club was meeting there, but I was ahead of most of that crowd. I had a party of 4 people. I specifically asked for a recommendation for lunch other than a sandwich, the waitress without hesitation told me that the meatloaf was delicious and highly ordered. I ordered the meatloaf. The meatloaf was tasty, i have to admit that............but it was room tempature at best. Possibly still cold a little from refer over night. I ate it, didn't say a word I couldn't finish it, as it was a large portion. My wedge salad was top of the line for a wedge and great. Again, meatloaf was tasty, but someone forgot to nuke it!!"

  • "As always very enjoyable. A group of (6) of us went on Thursday which is 1/2 off bottles of wine which we were very delighted to hear. Food is always good and the portions are very generous."

  • "Every time we eat at Bully's East, the food gets better and better. I had the Bully Burger with cheddar cheese (and no bun), plus my choice of not one, but TWO sides (I had a small dinner salad and green beans almondine). I ended up taking 1/3 of the burger and over half the green beans home, as the serving sizes were huge. I love this place. We have a favorite server and they know me when I walk in the door. The food is consistently fabulous and I always look forward to eating here."

  • "A group of friends came together to celebrate the retirement of one of our managers. We needed to change the seating number at the last minute, so calling the restaurant direct worked perfectly. Our reservation was ready and waiting when we arrived and the service we received was impeccable! Food was delicious too!"

  • "Prime rib, salmon in vinaigrette, bread pudding, mud pie, mojito. Excellent all around, generous portions, waitress was terrific - BUT - the atmosphere is...old West/sports bar kind of shabby, kind of noisy. So...I would recommend it definitely for the food and wait staff, but not if you care at all about your surroundings."

  • "although Bully's is know for it prime rib, I was pleasantly surprised at how good the Sunday brunch was. The portion sizes were large and the food was great. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant for brunch and I can't wait to go back."

  • "Bully's East is a standard in San Diego's Mission Valley. We have been going there for years and it was an after work hangout for lots of us. Bully's is a 50's style steakhouse with dark wood and thickly cushioned booths. It is NOT the bright garish downtown Gaslamp Quarter youth scene. This is a place for the 40 somethings to go and have a good hunk of prime rib."

  • "It had been a while since we had eaten at Bully's east, they were always known for great prime rib so we decided to have an early dinner there on Valentine's Day. Our waitress was friendly and attentive but the food wasn't very good. The prime rib was tough, the salad watery and the baked potato average. I know sometimes the food isn't as good when they are expecting a crowd, but I won't try them again. We were pretty disappointed."

  • "Bully's is the spot! But this time I was a little disappointed we frequent Bully's and We were seated at a make shift table in the doorway, the only table with a white table cloth, no flowers for my wife like all the other tables and it wasn't even set up with plates condiments. Not the Bully's I am accustom too! Food was great and we were seated right way. $150 not a bad V-Day!"

  • "Had a craving for Prime Rib so we decided to give it another try after having 2 not-so-good experiences with food here. Tonight everything was PERFECT! I love their house-made salad dressing with honey and paprika and capers...so delicious! My prime rib was so tender and flavorful, I couldn't ask for a better piece of meat. I love their tri-flavored bread with the raisin rye and sourdough! All of this was topped off with absolutely fantastic service from Jeanie who confirmed that she was carrying extra tables when I noticed that she had a lot of people to take care of. Wow! How is service from her when it is normal? Because we were never neglected and were very pleased with her service. We'll be back again sooner than later!"

  • "Have been to Bullys on many occasions and have never been disapointed with their steaks and prime rib. Came for Valentines Day and once again were treated like VIPs!! Tonight the owner came by numerous times to check on our table. Enough to let us know he was interested but not enough to intrude!!"

  • "Food and service were excellent. We were impressed with the professional and efficient manner in which they managed the big dining crowd. Steak and lobster special was nicely prepared and reasonably priced."

  • "First visit. Came early for Valentine's Day. Found the service and food to be excellent and a good value. Noise level is moderate to high but maybe that was due to being seated in a booth located in the bar. My wife and I had a good time and will return. Our special note was our server. She made us feel right at home like we had been there several times before. Definitely a memorable evening."

  • "Bully's East is the perfect place for a romantic night out or with a group of friends. We were on a tight schedule to eat dinner and get to the George Strait concert last Friday. Our waitress was amazing and made sure we were very well taken care of and handed us the check just as the limo pulled up out front to take us to the concert. Amazing food & amazing service!!! Thanks for helping us enjoy a wonderful evening!"

  • "great for when you have a hankering for prime rib and the like. nice low lighting so you can undo your top pant button as you fill your belly with the generous portions of meat."

  • "Since our initial visit to Bully's on 1/5/14, my husband and I have gone back two other times. Once for breakfast and another time for dinner in the bar area. Each time has been wondering. The service is superb and the food is outstanding. Definitely one of our favorite restaurants."

  • "My two friends & I enjoyed our meal. The negative was the guy that came and turned off the lights and tv. I guess we had stayed too long. This was kind of rude. We were enjoying talking. We didn't realize that we had stayed too long. For that reason, we may have to consider before we go back. Thank you"

  • "My husband and I took my 35 year old son to dinner at Bully's Mission Valley. Everything was an experience I will not forget. The food was excellent, the room we were in had interesting people of all kinds, The atmosphere sounded like a light party, but happy. Our conversation and participation with each other was awesome and the entire night was ended with my son purchasing 2 hats from Bully's. We live in Bird Rock and went to Bully's in Bird Rock when it was there many times. Also, we enjoy Del Mar Bully's. The individuals that took our order, gave our food, etc, all were very nice to us. So thanks!!!"

  • "I love Bully's East - However, this time it was not a good experience. We waited longer than we should have for drinks. Ok, we thought - maybe because it's New Year's Eve? - NO, I come here two to three times a year and always for my Birthday. Then appetizers were late (good though). Dinner late (mash potatoes cold and dry). Food plates left on table when we were finished eating. Disappointed. P.s. Waitress was nice."

  • "Prime Rib was excellent. We have tried many prime rib restaurants including the famous House of Prime Rib in SF, but this was by far the best quality meat, great portions and less fat in comparison to others."

  • "The prime rib was amazing. Very tender and cooked to order. Unfortunately it took almost two hours for a table of 4 to get through lunch. There was a table of two that sat across from us at the same time and they were paying their bill at the same time we were served our main dish. Not sure this is a great place to go during your lunch hour but great for maybe dinner or a Saturday lunch."
