The restaurant smelled like cheap fish or poor quality of sea food. The value is an insult. We sent our starter order of bacon wrapped shrimp back.. There were, 3 total, small shrimp wrapped in what appeared to be microwaved bacon siting on a bed of creamed corn. It looked like it had been sitting out awhile and smelled old. The steak and lobster deal is a joke! The lobster was rubbery and smelled very fishy and there was not much meat. More like a crayfish as well as the crab. The steak was very good at least cooked perfectly! The option for sides seemed very limited. I wasn't able to request no bacon on my double baked potato. That seems to me that everything was pre-made and not fresh. The food was not hot it was barely warm. The mashed potatoes were very thin and watery. The double baked potato was hard. The wine and mixed drinks were outstanding! The al a cart ordering makes the pirce of the meal exorbitant. Overall I am extremely dissatisfied and will never go back even if it's free. I wish I could get a refund!

We had been wanting to try Bull and Bourbon for a while and it did not disappoint. It’s so nice to have a good steakhouse in east county for a nice night out. I ordered the filet mignon and it was perfectly cooked. The husband ordered the ribeye and it was great as well. The twice baked potato and street corn were both amazing. Creme brûlée for dessert was so good and warm in the middle which I prefer. I want to go back to try the wedge salad and the onion soup next. We will definitely be back!

Food was ok, but fairly overpriced given the setting. Prepare to spend $200.00 for a couple.

The ambiance is amazing. Service was awesome. Drinks are classy and delicious. The steak and lobster wed is an killer deal. Both were delicious. They don't come with sides so you can opt to order them... they weren't great so I wouldn't do that again, but I will definitely be back!

We had a great dinner to celebrate my S.O.'s 45th birthday. He had filet mignon and I had salmon - both excellent! Service was on point and food came out quickly. Very satisfied with our experience. I would have given 5 stars for a truly outstanding experience had they offered some sort of dessert or something special for our birthday celebration.

Food and service was good. However, was there for 33rd anniversary dinner and could not have a conversation due to noise level and seats were not the greatest. Hostess was not very friendly.

Great quality steaks, but they had a VERY strong taste of charcoal or wood smoke. If you don’t like that taste, I’d recommend getting one of the sauces to cover it.

The food is delicious. I have never had a bad meal yet, and have eaten there several times. It can be a bit noisy in the main open area of the restaurant. If you plan to go on a Wednesday, you will want to make a reservation otherwise you will be eating in the bar or you will be turned away. If you can not eat there Viewpoint is also a great option! Enjoy!

I'm often disappointed in restaurant steaks. I can do wonders with a prime cut on my grill at home. This place did not disappoint. The filet was seared but rare, done perfectly and soooo delicious! The cocktails were awesome. My wife loved the "Friends with Benefits", a passion-fruit margarita style drink, and the house old fashioned with Makers Bourbon was a very, very smooth and tasty. We will be back.

The waiter was very helpful. The food was great. It was a little pricey but I don’t mind paying when the food is good. The only complaint is that they did get our order wrong they brought us garlic mashed potatoes instead of twice baked potato. When I brought it to a waiters attention. He said that that was twice baked potato. Well I know that it was not a twice baked potato. So when our regular waiter came by I explain to him what had happened. He immediately replaced the item. I did not like the fact that the waiter try to just brush it off by telling us that that’s what we had ordered I’m not sure if he was just being lazy or did not want to look into it but I know that anybody knows the difference between a mashed potatoes and a twice baked potatoes.

Very nice restaurant. Porterhouse was no way a 22 oz steak maybe 12 oz at best and extremely fatty almost inedible. Wife's NY strip was overcooked she requested a medium rare and was given a medium well almost well done. She's a Chef at a nearby competing casino,, and was not happy, but refused to return the steak as she knows how hard cooks work. Crab cakes were very delicious (maybe best we've ever had) and so were our drinks. Server was awesome I forget her name but she was friendly and attentive.

Took my girlfriend here for a date night and we were definitely disappointed. It was my first time going to this establishment and for a proper steakhouse it just didn’t live up to expectations. The filet mignon was good. It wasn’t your normal fillet cut but it was cooked well and tasted good. Unfortunately that’s where it ended for us as for the good. The veggies that we ordered were mostly pretty good but the broccoli was literally not just chard but burnt like it was on fire charcoal burnt the whole floret and stock I can’t believe it was even served like that. I tried to eat it but I just couldn’t it was so bad. We didn’t actually even complain about the veggies because we had issues with our second plate which was the risotto. The risotto came undercooked and when we told the waitress about it she went back to the chef and the chef claimed that it was actually over cooked if anything. I had to explain to her that I’ve eaten risotto many times at many different restaurants and it’s never been so hard where it actually gets stuck in your teeth and you can’t chew it because it’s as hard as rice uncooked. she came back to us and said what would you like me to do would you want me to cook you another one that’s actually cooked properly and we said yes because we were starving at that point. I know the plate Was vegan so it’s not gonna have maybe some of the creaminess or butter taste or what not but it was almost completely flavorless there was supposed to be truffle in there but I couldn’t taste it at all and neither could my girlfriend we are both extremely disappointed but we were just so hungry we just ate it and tried to get out of there because we were late for the concert next-door. I told the waitress that next time the chef doesn’t believe it maybe he should try his own dish himself. The next day I spoke to my friend who was there that same week on Wednesday and she ordered the exact same dish and said the exact same thing; no flavor and under cooked.

For what we paid it was not worth it! Rib eye was full of fat and the lobster tail was smaller than one jumbo shrimp.

Steak and Lobster special caught our attention. 6oz filet and one half of a spiny lobster tail $39 now so decided to try something else.

Pasta and Maine Lobster tail proved to be a plate of spaghetti and one half of a spiny lobster (not Maine lobster….I’m a fisherman and pointed this out to waitress who blew it off). Bigger issue was the lobster tail meat was literally the size of a small shrimp. Sent it back. Not paying forty dollars for a shrimp and a plate of luke warm spaghetti.

Ordered the hanger steak and fries. Very good. Would recommend. Cmon Bull and Bourbon. Get it together. You’re making plenty of money on your casino. Let’s gooo! We want to support you!

Atmosphere was a little loud but that could have been because of the group next to us.
Smalller menu than I had anticipated and they ran out of lobster. 😔
The steak was amazing, our server was great!
Value was on point as well.
1st round of drinks were poured heavy, 2nd round, not so much.
We were never offered dessert but we think it was because we dined late and the kitchen was shutting dow.
