Been going here for years.  One of our favorite sports bars.  Love the food and the service.  Tammy has been there for years and always gives great service.  Feels like a true neighborhood place to hang out and watch the "game".  Can't say enough good about this place.  Check it out.  Can't go wrong.

It was tough to rate and review ...
It was tough to rate and review the Bullpen.  It's a great place if you're over 50 and want a comfortable place to grab a strong drink and dinner.  But otherwise, the atmosphere and decor did nothing for me.  It's stale and outdated.  My burger just did not compare to what you can get elsewhere, and I personally have had better prime ... read more

Went here over the holidays with some friends. They had room for us even though the place was packed with people. The burgers were absolutely amazing, despite the high price tag. Worth it for the quality and service alone!

Helluvan old school steak house.  Ambiance is early 1980s but it rocks. They have a great bar and also play live music on the weekends. From the salads to the steaks, the food is totally legit. The bead, fugetaboutit!

I never write reviews. I just use yelp to check out places. I felt compelled to write a review. First let me say the staff here is great. From the bar (Leslie I think his name was) to the hostess Susan (so nice) to our server Paula. This lady is the best in the business. Her knowledge of the menu was extensive. I asked her what was t ... read more

I have been coming to Bull Pen for many years off and on, the Food is a little pricey and pretty good in general but I don't think it is up to the quality of most higher priced steak houses. It's definitely worth a try though your tastes may be different than my own. All my friends have a great tine when we go dancing there and there ... read more

When you go to a steak house, have the steak. I had a great filet, perfectly cooked, and super stuffed baked potato. The service is excellent.

Just moved to the neighborhood with our 2 kids and decided to try The Bull Pen. The owner greeted us so warmly and gave us a nice booth. The clam chowder was rich and delicious and my steak was cooked to perfection. My 2 dirty martinis was icing on the cake. They also threw in a yummy desert- home made cheesecake on the house.

Food is fantastic and the service is superb. Josh went above and beyond to ensure my family was comfortable and seated in a timely matter. The salads were fresh and our food came out hot. Our waitress Eve was very friendly and professional. She was always smiling and checking our table to ensure we were ok throughout our dinner time.

One of the best place with pub and restaurant. A very nice old school decor with a friendly and attentive staff. The music is really good. Food is homemade, like Grandma's and with good size portions. Good strong drinks for reasonable prices. Will certainly come again.

Strong drinks, live music eclectic crowd. Always fun and the best "people watching" around. The dinners (meat, not for vegans) usually good. Reservations usually necessary. Get 9:00 PM reservations and it turns into dinner and a show.
