Went for a steak with a friend, it was well priced and cooked well, maybe a little over cooked for a rare but certainly nothing to complain about. The wine selection was pretty poor however, if you're going to eat here I'd definitely recommend accompanying...More

A group of 25 or so of us met here and they have a cute, private spot downstairs for such events. The food was good and the drink selection adequate enough! We would return if visiting the area again.

Great food- the bison burger, Thai chicken wraps and steak salad were all excellent!! Service was a little slow, but very nice. I'd definitely go back.

We visited this restaurant this past weekend, on great review from friends. We were able to eat outside, which seemed like a great idea but apparently this area is a little sketchy and scary from being approached, and the food itself was ever, the service...More

Description
Formerly Tristate Electrical Supply, the building was a quintessential landmark of the Hagerstown Commercial Core Historic District. During late 19th century, Downtown Hagerstown became the leading producer of furniture, organs and other products. This economic boom was caused by total redevelopment and transformation of the downtown commercial area during that period. As a major railroad center, Hagerstown maintained a stable economic situation during the Great Depression. Bulls and Bears was opened in the fall of 2008 by Jone and Don Bowman. After purchase of the building, no stone was left unturned to return the building to it's original luster through years of labor.
