We go to the Bully for lunch, apres skiing, or dinner. We like Chris at the bar. He is friendly, talkative, and knowledgeable. Mudslides are a favorite drink. Nachos or wings are fav foods. Casual, inexpensive, and a good value.

I had what I thought would be a quick meeting and Bully was convenient to my parking. Service was excellent and prices were outstanding. We stayed an extra 1/2 hour - all good.
