    Previous Surf & Turf Wednesday special (around $35) included a nice size filet and Maine lobster tail, but didn't include any sides, dessert, etc. New special is $55, but includes baked potato soup or house salad, 8oz NY steak, 8oz Rock/warm water lobster tail, mashed potatoes and roasted carrots, plus a chocolate cake/mouse for dessert. While the inclusion of the starter/sides/dessert is a welcome addition that rounds out the meal, the change from filet to NY steak and from Maine to Rock lobster was a noticeable decline. I'd gladly pay an extra $5 or so for the filet and Maine lobster. And the carrots were undercooked (still crunchy!). Most people at other tables weren't eating theirs either. Overall a good meal, but the filet at B&B is my favorite, and I was let down by their substitutions.

    Restaurant is elegant, and I have to say the chicken piccata was amazing good. I have never tried such a good flavor. But it was my wife plate. I try the Rack of lamb, they were great too, but I order medium well and I got two or three with blood, also the sauce they offer with the lamp wasn’t that good I requested chimichurri which was better. But after trying my wife chicken I wished that the chicken piccata sauce would be great with the lamb chops. Soup also was delicious and the caesar salad with anchovies was delicious too. Dessert was too big for two persons. Will probably came back to try the steak.

    It sounds like you had a great dining experience at the restaurant! The chicken piccata and rack of lamb both sound delicious, although we are disheartened that your lamb wasn't cooked to your liking and will let management be made aware to alleviate issues. It's great to hear that the soup and Caesar salad were also delicious, and it's always a bonus when dessert is big enough to share! We look forward to your return so you can try our delicious steaks! Thank you for dining at Bull and Bourbon Steakhouse!

    Great food and service. We’ve been wanting to come for a long time and we are glad we finally did. The ambiance is so nice - really moody! There was only a few tables aside from us which made it feel like we had the whole place to ourselves. Food wise - steak was cooked perfectly and the veggie sides were a perfect pairing. We also upgraded to the Cobb salad which had a different spin and we were pleasantly surprised. They have their meats hanging in the fridge you can walk by which we also enjoyed. Would come back again!
