We eat here whenever we do the sugar loaf craft festival. It is consistently great, service is good and friendly! I'd recommend it to anyone who likes a good steak and seafood restaurant, and the free salad bar with entree is just terrific!

I have reviewed this restaurant favorably in the past and over the years I've noticed it consistently slipping this visit was the worst. And we will say goodbye We ALWAYS wait longer than in other restsurants replace a drink water and to get it. We know this. (In fact in the past we would occasionally order two drinks at once.!)...

We decided to try this restaurant for dinner. We got there early (4:30) and we're the first ones there. That scared us a bit, but eventually, others began arriving. Early bird specials are quite reasonable and tasty and come with the salad bar, which contains more than 70 items. Service was very good. I would recommend this place, especially if... More

My wife and I ate dinner here on a Monday evening with another couple. We arrived about 6:30 p.m, and were seated quickly. Our server, Rebecca, arrived shortly with menus. She also took our drink order. She returned a few minutes later with our drinks. The "fun" began when we tried to place our orders. Rebecca just couldnt seem to... More

The Golden Bull has been around for many, many years, so they must be doing something right, making some people happy - but the last two times I've been here (at the suggestion of others I was meeting) have been very disappointing. The salad bar offers a lot of variety and I always enjoy that, but it cannot make up... More

They have the best salad bar here; there are over 50 items and most items include it. They also have a really good special daily - I forget what time it ends, but it's very reasonable. You can have prime rib, crab cakes and chicken Parmesan. It includes salad bar, dessert and coffee or tea. I think this is around... More

Went with family and had a wonderful meal. Their prime ribs and bbq ribs melt in your mouth. Best salad bar ever. The service was excellent and food was very reasonably priced.

We pulled up about 7:30 on Saturday evening to an empty parking lot thinking that we made the wrong choice....not sure why it isn't swamped. Food was great (although they had run out of filet mignon) Waitresses were awesome, getting everything right on an 8 person order. Salad bar was full, fresh and tasty.

I called to make reservation for dinner on Easter Sunday. They failed to tell me that there was buffet and limited menu. All I was told that they close at 7:00. I made a reservation for 5:30. When we got there we saw that the buffet was 29.95 and five entrees ranging up to $36.00. My entire party of five... More
