History

Once upon a time a husband and wife named Phil and Marie had a vision.  Phil, having successfully thought up the idea of an "open pit" took his wife and children from Baltimore to Ocean City in hopes of opening a restaurant where he could display the Pit in an open kitchen. The first Bull on the Beach opened May 28, 1980 on the Boardwalk.  Through the years we have had the pleasure of working with dedicated staff and loyal customers--all who have helped with the success of the business.  The Bull has seen a few different locations, all offering delicious menu options and fun times.  Currently, there are 2 locations in Ocean City. Our Boardwalk location has opened their doors at the Park Place Hotel.  This location provides an outdoor bar/seating area offering a beautiful view of the Ocean City Boardwalk and The Atlantic Ocean. The 94th Street Bull is located up North and just a block off the beach.  Regulars frequent here for indoor or outdoor seating and for some fun times in the Bar.  Sunday nights are pretty popular as the infamous DJ Wax shows off his skills as you dance the night away. Bull on the Beach also has a sister restaurant in West Ocean City.  Crab Alley steams up some pretty delicious crabs and fresh seafood from the harbor.  As a whole, we are all heavily involved in the community.  From Golf Tournaments to Crab & Bull Roasts to The Annual Penguin Swim we always enjoy these fun times with you and being able to donate all money raised back to our local hospital, Atlantic General, in Berlin, MD. The Bull’s “Phil”osophy has always been simple, a three legged stool: “GREAT FOOD, GREAT SERVICE AND A CLEAN ENVIRONMENT TO ENJOY IT IN.” We hope you continue to enjoy your time with us as we have always enjoyed our time with you!  We look forward to another successful, fun summer.

Great food and fair prices! We came on a busy Saturday and were seated immediately. Our waiter, Steve, was super friendly and very on top of everything. We never had to ask for any refills which I always appreciate. My husband got the open pit beef sandwich and I got the single crab cake platter. Both were really, really good!

This location has a lot of seating for large groups so this a great spot for families.

I’m glad we don’t live here because we’d be here every night. Service is always over the top. The staff doesn’t stop moving. Great drinks, awesome food and very friendly.

We’ve been eating here for over 10 years and have never had a bad experience. Food always great and service the same.

I went here using a gift certificate that I won at a fundraiser for Camp Possibilities, a summer camp for children with type 1 Diabetes. Off the bat I appreciate the kindness and generosity they showed donating to such a great cause. I realized that my gift certificate had expired 2 weeks earlier, but the manager accepted it without question. Plus 2 and I hadn’t even been seated yet! So the hostess was incredibly nice and encouraged my son and me to sit in the bar area until our table was ready. The environment was fun at the bar and the bartender friendly. Definitely a place that I will return to. Once seated, our server was quick to get our drinks and then orders. Our dinners came out quickly and tasted great! Overall this was a great experience! This is my son’s new favorite and he’s already making plans to bring his friends when they come to the beach for a visit. I will bring the rest of my family and my friends here in the near future. I assume that it will get very busy during the season.

With so many places in Ocean City to be successful you have to be something special with attention to quality and taste. Bull on the Beach hits the mark in every category!!! Went there for dinner and was surprised at the 2016 Customer Appreciation Party!!! The food was top quality and taste,. The best beef anywhere, so tender that it melted in your mouth. And the Buffet did not just have land options, it also had the bounty of the sea with oysters, clams, and mussel’s prepared in every way imaginable! This is a must go to place when at the beach!!!!
