Bulle Rock Bar and Grill
Food was good, service was good. Server had a lot of patience with my dinner guest, since she was very picky on the wine and food. Coffee served was very weak, though.
The pizza was very food and the salad great. The wait staff is always pleasant and quite accommodating
First let me say, the food was on par with expectations and service throughout was better than average with 2 servers intermittently taking care of our table. Overall, satisfied and will be back, but wanted to provide some feedback that could possibly be shared to create a better experience for me and others in the future...
1) We were sitting outside on a beautiful day, but there was a group of "businessmen" around the corner that had no filters related to volume or inappropriate language. This was making my table, and anyone else on the patio, quite uncomfortable as they were oblivious to their surroundings. I thought the staff could have addressed this situation.
2) My other issue is that we had a box full of leftovers which we forgot to grab and left on the table. We realized this while exiting the parking lot and went back in to get them, but were told they had been trashed. It could have only been 5 minutes since we left and it was not so busy that they couldn't have given this more consideration.
The Grill was low on staff when we arrived. The bartender was super in that he was taking orders, serving, and mixing drinks. He apologized for the lack of help.
This was first time here on a Monday night. I tried the pizza which was quite good.
The crab cake benedict is not a benedict at all and should not be advertised as such. Whoever changed the recipe made a big mistake. Before now I stated that it was even better than I'd had in DC which was a tall order to match. Now, it doesn't even come close. That was my last time having it.
Good food, great view and even better service - all at a great value?!?!
I'll be back next week....
I looked forward to the crab cake benedict I had a few weeks ago but it seems the recipe has changed.
The entree was still very good but not as good as my previous brunch.
Excellent food and service. Very relaxing atmosphere and reasonable prices
Great food! Took guests to dinner the receptionist on duty did not have a reservation listed said she forgot to check open table reservations fortunately a table was available also restaurant was very loud and asked the waitress to have the music turned down which she did
We have used the location as a mid point meeting location for the last 3 years and usually had a good experience. This trip (and to a degree the previous one a few months ago) was terrible. The service was slow and the food was mediocre. The crab soup was not at all creamy, the burger was below par (greasy roll), and the very sparse serving of homemade chips were atrocious (75% of them were overcooked).
We will find a new location for our quarterly business meetings.
Beautiful view, great bartender (john), yummy eats. Especially liked the tin can nachos and crabcakes
Thanks so much for the feedback it was a pleasure having you dine with us!
It was burger night. I ordered medium and got well done. My partner ordered fries and got chips. The fries were very greasy and almost cold.The condiment bar needed to be replenished at 6 PM!! The waitress reminded me of a Valley girl...no polish at all. Overall, t was OK. I won't hurry back.
The Grill is a great place to get a nice lunch. The food is always good. However, the steak on my daughter's salad was a little tough so she didn't eat it. The appetizer in a "tin" was fabulous.
The service was much better this visit. We all had salads which were very very good. Pleasantly surprised.
Only thing we noticed is that the soup serving has gotten much smaller and it also seemed they the cream of crab recipe may have changed as well. That would be a shame.
But all in all, this was a good experience.
We’ll be back for lunch again.
There was a problem in the kitchen but the main server was very accommodating .
My husband and I never complain about food but this was horrible. First my husband ordered the cream of crab soup, which we usually appreciate how every restaurants recipe is different but this didn’t even taste like crab or really have any flavor. Then we both got the prime rib. It was tough/overcooked for the medium rare we ordered and had no flavor. It was the first time I actually struggled to get food down.
The manager was quite accommodating and the view was spectacular, however the service and food quality were sub-par. They have a great menu and dining space so please improve the kitchen and wait staff.
Everything was excellent. The staff was most accommodating. When my friend and I first arrived, we asked to be seated outside. When we say down, the volume on the outside television was quite loud. We requested that the volume be lowered, and it was immediately muted. This enabled us to have a pleasant conversation with out shouting. The food was excellent. We look forward to subsequent visits.
Lois A, Thanks so much for the kind words we look forward to serving you again sometime soon!
We went for the Mother’s Day Brunch. A room full of large round tables and a buffet type service made it feel like a cafeteria. Food was ok but for $45 per person plus a 20% service charge I would have expected beverages (at least one) to be included. They were not. So $54 plus a drink ($6) means we paid $60 per person for ok food that we served ourselves. Very disappointed.
Seated in darker Bar area at a table for four which had Formica top & no tablecloth. Came early at first seating & buffet table was one continuous line overlooking golf course. Food was presented okay but was not heated & meat such as sausage links were very cold.
My suggestion would be: 1. Place tablecloths on all used tables 2. Arrange buffet where the flow would be better & quicker 3. Use club’s scenic views for seating. For sure, rearrange for diversity of the food presentation.
I really like this place and I recommend it as well.
The crab ball appetizer was amazing. The burger was good, but nothing spectacular. They did allow us to request how we wanted it cooked so that was nice. If I go again I would choose from their entree selection.
Thank you for your kind words about your recent visit we look forward to seeing you again sometime soon.
First visit since Silks, which we always enjoyed. Very disappointed with the dramatically decline in the poor quality of the food. The Turkey was presented in little shredded pieces, not even half a slice. Bagels and pastries appeared poor quality store bought goods, as did the desserts. Greatly overpriced and service was mediocre. Do not plan to return.
Marie, We're sorry you had anything less than a 5 star experience with us. We take pride in our menu and food for both value and quality. While it's difficult feedback to take in, we appreciate hearing your perspective so we can improve our overall guest experience. Your experience didn't best represent who we are or how we treat our guests. We hope you'll consider giving us another try sometime soon and giving you a truly great experience that you deserve.
Brunch was delicious, a bit more expensive than other nearby restaurants. The golf course was beautiful and the service was good.
Thanks so much for visiting!
I wanted to meet up with family who I haven’t seen in a while. We decided to meet in a restaurant halfway between NJ and Annapolis MD, and Bulle Rock met the criterium. We all enjoyed our meal from appetizers to salads to main courses. The restaurant is set on a lovely country club and I imagine that it would be even more beautiful in the summer.
Thank so much for your kind words and we look forward to seeing you again sometime soon.
I expected so much more out of Bulle Rock. My wife an I dine out often and this was the worst we have had in a very long time. Service was definitely sub par. The menu was limited but not an issue. My wife got the ribeye it was good. Didn’t stand out though. My dinner was the rockfish stuffed with crab imperial. It was laid on top of some mash potato and asparagus. Not a bad idea but to my dislike the skin was left on the fish. It was not described like that on the menu. I have never seen this at a restaurant before. Sure I have seen it with trout and red snapper but never rockfish. The manager said this was a common way to prepare rock fish. I do believe otherwise. One eleven Main in bel air is a better route if you are looking for a fine dining experience!!
The quality of the food and dining experience has greatly deteriorated in recent years. What was once a dining destination is now an average meal. Food very average and the dining room is noisy. Probably won't return.
We live in the community and eat here often. For a while the service had gotten much better, but this last trip the service was as bad as it used to be. Took a long time to order and then much longer to be served. The manager seemed to also be running food to the tables. It was burger night, and we had to ask to have toppings and condiments replenished. No one was paying attention to that table.
Also, when we arrived the hostess did not greet us and actually seemed like she was not at all happy to be working. Staff was also not dressed as they had been. Seemed to be extremely casual, in workout clothes.
I hope this was all a temporary problem and service will improve.
Our server Tiarra was excellent. She had many different jobs that night but did a wonderful job
I thought it was a cute place. I made a reservation for a Friday night at 9pm and I called to see if I could get a certain server and they said their kitchen closes at 9pm on a Friday!! I just think 9pm is way too early to close a kitchen especially on a weekend night. I think 11pm would be way more reasonable. Please change this and I will come back!
Service was outstanding. Our waitress was excellent. It was burger night. Hamburgers were very god but turkey burgers were mushy and had no taste. They may have been frozen. For the price it would be nice to include french fries.
The drinks were very good but all 4 meals were below average for appearance and taste
We eat here regularly and the service and food had been improving. But on this visit they were definitely understaffed which should not have happened. Burger nights are always busy and they should have had more servers. Hopefully, this won’t happen again.
We are residents and eat here often. Food is very good as has service been lately. Much improved. The only issue is that the martinis are smaller than they used to be. I hope that will change back.
Service is spotty often. Often have to wait a long time for food. No character. Painted over great painted walls, now plain. Pictures on wall no one can see. Boring.
We went for a birthday celebration, a party of 15. They sat us in a semi-private dining room off the bar which was perfect. The bar area is nice, but too loud for a special event, especially with a few seniors in the group. The service, food and drinks were wonderful. I wouldn't hesitate to plan another event there.
We went there on a Tuesday night. We had been there b4, apparently under different management. Wow what a change and it was not in a good way. This was once an upscale Golf restaurant with decent food. The previous decor was more upscale and the service was good. As we walked through the interior of the facility to get to the dining room we saw several small trash cans full of food containers and one was overflowing, not good. When we reached the dining room we were greeted By the bartender who was taking orders and tending bar.
It was 10-15 minutes b4 we received our drinks. The server apologized for the wait and took our orders. The food was not as good as it was in past visits under different management. But, the name of the restaurant had changed to a bar & grill and the food was an example. Honestly, this was not a good expierence and I could not recommend it to others.
The restaurant food is getting better. Service is slow. Filled out the application but received my residence card .
Been here twice in two weeks. Very nice. Pleasant server, undless beverage refills at lunch. Porch seating was nice on a summer day.
