Pretzel appetizer is a major highlight- recommend highly - it's served with applesauce, honey mustard and beer cheese and the mustard in particular is awesome. burgers are solid. Mudslide is a signature drink there, we didn't have it but some family members did and really...More

Good basic food that we enjoy and comfort food also. It’s right across the street from a church and we frequently gets to see weddings. And that’s always fun.

Have been here before; good dinner, the salad was good with the blueberry vinaigrette and sandwiches were good. The atmosphere is nice and place fills up fast. Would return.

I've been to Bully Ranch a few times and always considered the food good. Unfortunately the food was terrible this time. They could not even make a hamburger taste good.

Very nice casual restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. Very nice server. Great Fish & Chips, Fish Tacos, Ribs and Lobster MAC & Cheese. Great Old Fashion. Not to be missed were the Pretzels.

Great hamburgers, you can choose between buffalo, veggie or beef. The hot wings are a must. Love the decor, old west and cowboys

The wings were crunchy and good. Skip the Tator tots, not sure why anyone would like these. The atmosphere was nice we sat outside. I would probably try it again.

We stopped by for a quick drink and a snack on the evening we arrived in Vail. We ordered Martinis and Tater Tots. The Martinis were good but the Tater Tots were AMAZING! I kid you not, they were Amazing, we could not stop eating...More

Good food priced a little on the higher side. The staff was attentive and friendly. Must try the buffalo chili.

We go to the Bully for lunch, apres skiing, or dinner. We like Chris at the bar. He is friendly, talkative, and knowledgeable. Mudslides are a favorite drink. Nachos or wings are fav foods. Casual, inexpensive, and a good value.
