Great food and a great value ; very interesting appetizers, nice specials, great steaks, pasta, entrees, and desserts! Nice wine and beer selection and a convivial bar scene. Excellent service to boot. Great to have such a gem on Main Street, Chestertown.

We love to keep things interesting, Sharon -- it's great to hear that you loved it all! And of course, what good would a tasty meal be without some nice drinks to wash it down? Hope to see you again soon for another great time. All the best, The Bullhouse Restaurant & Bar Team More

Living in the area, this is a charming little place that we like to visit once a month or so. They always have delicious craft beer on tap, the atmosphere is great, it's very clean... but the food could really be better. Each time we try something new, the food is "good", not great. We typically don't order a burger... More

What a delightful surprise my husband and I had at this restaurant. I did make a reservation for our Anniversary. A lovely table in the window. Our server was attentive and so sweet.

It's large and the acoustics can make it hard to hear sometimes. We've been there a few times now and they really need to change the menu up from time to time.

Cute place in an old building in town. The food was terrific. We were most impressed because both the bartender and a server had called in sick and the one person working a full house gave impeccable service anyway!

We have stopped at The Bullhouse restaurant several times over the past few months. The food is very good and the prices are reasonable. I think that the meat entrees are a bit better than the seafood. We enjoy the nachos and salsa served at the beginning. The service has been good, but at times the staff seems to lack... More

The service was excellent. The California Merlot wine was great. The chips and salsa were wonderful (this from a Texan who has chips and salsa in every Mexican food restaurant). The food was tasty. We enjoyed our dinner. Well done.

Very nice spot for dinner with a menu of tapas and entrees. We had guacamole made at the table, dates stuffed with almonds and wrapped in bacon, and chorizo stuffed oysters. All were excellent. Not a great room though, kind of dark and chilly feeling.
