Setting the Table

A few months ago, this popular watering hole in Barefoot Landing went through a couple renovations to spruce up their appearance and improve their beer selection. Now Bully’s Pub and Grill has 32 beers on tap to complement their new bar top and handsome updated flooring.

The wall of taps has definitely become the focal point of Bully’s, an impressive and exciting (perhaps even distracting) sight for beer-lovers. But there remain plenty of other entertaining factors at this bar, like television screens for guests to watch, and games to play with friends such as darts or pool. Outside on the patio, customers can enjoy the view of the water, or take a quick smoke.

Down the Hatch

Pub grub is the cuisine of choice here, with burgers and sandwiches taking the bulk of the menu. Bully’s is pretty well known for their delicious burgers, like El Toro, a patty topped with grilled onions, bacon, and mushrooms. Guests can also make their own burger with fresh toppings at an additional 50 cents, or just keep it simple by ordering a hamburger.

The appetizers, called “grazers” here, can be a meal on their own for the hungry person who doesn’t feel like sharing. Bully’s popular “totchos” for instance, are a delicious blend of nacho toppings on top of tater tots. The result is amazingly addicting and hard to share, and not just because they have to be eaten with a fork.

Other yummy bar foods are available, like wings, jalapeno poppers, and even soft pretzels with Bully’s homemade cheese sauce. Kids aren’t left out either, with smaller meals for them such as two mini burgers (Little Buddies) or a grilled cheese.

Check, Please

Prices at Bully’s aren’t bull-sized, making a couple beers and a meal not too hard on the wallet. Two beers and some “totchos” later, the bill was still under $20. Going during Happy Hour, which is every day from 4-7p.m., also can save you a few bucks. Beers, wines, and house liquors are a dollar off, and the bar celebrates holidays usually by offering other specials.

Bully’s opens every day of the week at noon and keeps the party going until 2 in the morning. With a full bar, 32 beers on tap, and more in the bottle, there is plenty to keep the party fueled too. Regularly the pub hosts team trivia nights, and guests can find out when by following their account, facebook.com/bullys.pub.

Lunch and dinner are great times for families, although if you don’t want people smoking around your kids, it might be best to stay inside. Since Bully’s is a great place to hang out with friends and make some new ones, and it has such a great beer selection, this long-standing favorite in Barefoot Landing looks like it’s going to remain a favorite.
