The White Bull is a farm-forward restaurant utilizing only GA grown products.

We feature local farms all over the menu, such as; cheeses, honey, meats, vegetables and fish.
Ernest Hemingway once named a blank piece of paper "The White Bull." Welcome to our blank canvas.

Best service I have had in a while. Food is consistently outstanding however this time they didn’t have many vegetarian options.

Great experience and food. Enjoyed the sizable brussel sprouts and bread and butter then split a pasta. Wine selection small but well curated. Gorgeous patio.

The outdoor garden in the back is delightful for dining! We had lunch on Sunday the roasted 1/2 chicken was very good!Moist and flavourful.

We decided to meet for early lunch on Sunday and arrived at 11:30 with a party of three.
It's really a lovely restaurant decor with a modern farmhouse look and feel. We started with apps and enjoyed the tasty Brussels sprouts -freshly baked bread/butter. All really tasty and had the chicken sandwich -yum, Veggie pasta dish- Wife loved and talked about all during lunch. Ended with an expresso to jump-start the afternoon. Overall food was very Delish and priced to reflect the locally grown suppliers. We will come back again and try the dinner menu. The location is a great spot in downtown Decatur. Can stroll around the area and enjoy the other retail and bar/ restaurants.

Outdoor area was fabulous but service was lacking. Food came out cool and we were already freezing. Still a good time though. Need more waiters outside. Our guy was great but he was clearly working too many tables.

Great atmosphere with a fantastic Aperitivo/Happy Hour menu (from 4-6pm daily). Public parking was easy to find and the walk to the restaurant wasn't too far.
Would highly recommend checking this restaurant out!

This was our third time back but not sure if we’d come back. Slightly disappointed with the vegetarian options and value. But more disappointed with the restaurant’s decision to “seat guests as if we weren’t in a pandemic”. I suppose I appreciate the honesty but let’s maintain our integrity while in a global pandemic and try to enjoy ourselves while still being safe. We chose to sit in a corner outside away from everyone but if that option weren’t available, we would have left.

We shocked to find that the restaurant was not practicing any social distancing. Like at all. Tables were right on top of each other. We got our food to go and it was mediocre at best. That will be our last visit to White Bull.

Had a wonderful meal!
Our bellies were happy after all 4 of us ordered incredible pasta dishes - and mine was GF. :)
I love what they did with the patio. It's really lovely, even romantic, with the hanging lights. It's a great option for outdoor dining during Covid.
Highly recommend White Bull!

My boyfriend and I celebrated our anniversary at White Bull and had a really beautiful evening. The service was absolutely amazing! We were gifted a very sweet card congratulating us with the signatures of the staff. The food was the best we've had and the drinks were fun and delicious as well. It was intimate but open creating a very nice sense of community. Honestly we didn't want to leave, the night was so perfect. Big thanks to White Bull for such a lovely night! We'll be back!

A friend and I went here for lunch and it was phenomenal! The restaurant is beautiful and the wait staff was so friendly and welcoming. I ordered the Mahi Mahi and it was amazing! Probably the best I’ve been had! Also, for someone who loves coffee, their coffee is really good too! I’d also go back for just coffee and dessert, that’s how good the coffee was! I highly recommend the service and food at White Bull!

Back patio had incredible ambiance from creative lighting and fire pits and the heaters kept us nice and warm while dining safely outdoors on a cold winter night! The service was friendly and professional and the food, cocktails and wine were all expertly prepared and delicious. We will be back again very soon!

Food is super fresh and made to order. Our waiter, Noah was SUPERB! We ordered a tuna spread on their homemade fresh bread. The bread was okay and we said so, they brought out their AMAZING Brussel sprouts! They are incredible and highly recommend!! We got the truffle pasta and the beef cheek pasta and shared, both FANTASTIC!! At the end of our dining experience, we were given a bag of their homemade pasta! Can’t wait to eat it. I Would definitely go back.

I love this place - I really do. Terrific food, great staff with ever- inventive cocktails and entrees. I feel that this last visit was a bit "off" in that the gentleness and love that is typically in the food was missing. Overall the food felt heavy-handed. The broccolini seemed to lack the refinement it used to have - kinda just tossed onto the serving plate and left to fend for itself. Although I ordered the bolognese ( already a dense offering, and I'm OK with that ) -- it was without the delicate balance I am used to from WB and seemed to rely on "safe" rather than elevated. Also, a few missteps with regard to service, however the congenial vibe is always on point. I am chalking this particular experience up to a rarity.

Food came out lukewarm and service was slow. Bar wasn’t very accommodating. Great ambiance and if the food had been hotter it would have been a lot better of an experience. Great cocktails, just don’t try and order off the menu.

This isn’t my first experience at The White Bull, and it certainly will not be my last.
Their Covid compliancy is perfection.
The craft cocktails are expertly made and the food is sublime.
I’m really happy about the three and five course pasta flights.
My next visit, I plan on having the Chef’s Tasting.

In town to visit my son and looked up restaurants nearby and Open Table had The White Bull listed 4.7 or 4.8 rating, cool pics of food and restaurant so I booked a late lunch. We had an amazing time, the food was awesome black spaghetti and trout were two of our favorites. Great cocktails great service! This is saved as one of my née favs! It’s not a 4.8 star it is 5 star! Great restaurant.
