Myself and two friends were in Bulls and Bears last night. Gary was our bartender. The service was outstanding (you have a great asset with him being there) and the food was great. The chicken Baltimore is truly our favorite. Every time we are in...More

The food here is about what you would expect. The prices are average and the decor is pleasant. The one thing that really stands out is the service! Even a mediocre meal can taste great if it is served with a smile! I was here...More

Waited 10 minutes, no one waited on us. Hardly anyone else in the place. Wait staff seemed interested in everything other than a customer. Had to walk. Call Bar Rescue!!!!

First time in town on business. Good food and service, entrance difficult to navigate for out-of-town tourists. Ordered crab fries...interesting concoction. Burger was above average. Would visit again.

This the 1st time I’ve had crab cakes. I thought they were excellent. I had heard that a lot of places didn’t put much crab meat in the cakes but was lots of crab meat in these.

Description
Formerly Tristate Electrical Supply, the building was a quintessential landmark of the Hagerstown Commercial Core Historic District. During late 19th century, Downtown Hagerstown became the leading producer of furniture, organs and other products. This economic boom was caused by total redevelopment and transformation of the downtown commercial area during that period. As a major railroad center, Hagerstown maintained a stable economic situation during the Great Depression. Bulls and Bears was opened in the fall of 2008 by Jone and Don Bowman. After purchase of the building, no stone was left unturned to return the building to it's original luster through years of labor.
