Love this place. Food is amazing, staff is very friendly. And they also make a mean long Island that is perfectly balanced. I would also highly recommend the cheese board with bacon added. The chutney that comes with the cheese board is sooooo good. Will definitely be going back!

Terrible experience, avoid this place, too many other options. The worst management ever. Food sucked and when we told the manager a steak was overcooked he argued with us. Then brought out another one overcooked even worse. Never going back.

Our server was great. However, as soon as we sat down the hostess told us there was a time limit of 1 1/2 hours, had we known this when making a reservation, we would’ve gone somewhere else, because a group of us were getting together after not seeing one another for a long time. The food took about 1hr and 15mins to come out, it was dry and flavorless. I’ve had food from here before it’s usually fantastic but yesterday was a huge let down.

Fabulous food- salmon with lobster meat stuffing. Outside dining in front was noisy due to rush hour; should have requested rear patio. No other diners in front, so our waitress forgot we were out there. Music drifted out for us to hear it; very softly.

It’s a great go to place. It’s just important to reserve a table ahead of time otherwise you may get turned away. It’s entertaining to see how you are squeezing every possible inch out of the property for use.
Our waitress was kind & friendly as usual.

We wanted somewhere dog-friendly...so glad we chose Dog and Bull! The food and the service (thank you, Kristina!) were amazing, and we were able to sit at the front dining area outdoors with our 6 month-old standard Bernedoodle, Stella. The only downside is that the dog-friendly area is right on the main road, but well-hidden by planters and parked cars. Otherwise, we all had a great time and Stella loved her pupcicle and all the attention!

This is one of my go to's. Tonight we had poor service unfortunately. Our waitress was nowhere to be seen for a majority of the dinner. We waited over 30 min for a simple cheese board and when our entrees did arrive over an hour later, they were cold. I had a filet mignon, not the best dish eaten cold. We were disappointed to say the least. It was not that crowded to warrant poor service.

A group of us (5) came for Mother’s day brunch ... it was absolutely freezing inside the restaurant. We were sat at a picnic table in the tented area. We had to ask for the heat lamps to be put on . Our food was not hot ... it was like warm and we had to wait a while for utensils . That was a bummer . Our server was fantastic we know that Mother’s Day and Sunday brunch are completely hectic. But we also know that women are generally cold.. it was a cold and windy day. Perhaps the heat should Have been put on . If every patron was wearing their coats it’s an indication that everyone was quite uncomfortable.

Ordered 1 drink an app and a salad and BLT. Received the app in 20 min but after an hour of watching everyone else get their food and drinks, we were still waiting for our drink, salad and BLT. We asked for the manager and his first response was “I just checked to make sure your food was being made”. No apologies!!
