Not only is the service great, the food is prepared fresh using local farm to table ingredients and prepared with a lot of flavor and depth. Loved the way they can take an ordinary burger and tour it into gourmet.

Bully's has an excellent craft beer selection and the specials are always enticing. Great place to go for a beer and apps or full dinner. They also make a few flavors of ice cream for dessert options! Their bison chili is not to be missed!
