Good food but terrible staff

We have eaten here a few times and the food has always been quite good, but the staff, from front of house to the waiters, are not the friendliest of most attentive! They seem to be too busy checking phones, chatting to each other and disappearing for long periods of time to take care of patrons... read more

Very middle of the road overall. French fries really bad. Not too much to talk about. I liked Christmas music playing.

This was our second time eating at Bugaboo, the first time the food was great. This time it was just okay. We ordered steak and it was chewy and over cooked. The server was very nice. It wasn't too expensive.

The place had the feel of a Canadian lodge. Good service and the food was great. They serve dinner with a fresh baked loaf of honey wheat bread and it is delicious.

After a very enjoyable fall outing I asked my granddaughter were she wanted to eat. She said Bugaboo so we went. It was a good choice. She loved the nachos with shredded chicken. I had a steak that was cooked to perfection with the smashed potatoes and asparagus. Others had Alfredo, meatloaf, and 1/2 chicken. All enjoyed their meals and... More

Stopped in here the other night for dinner with the family. We were seated immediately and given menus. Our waiter was around shortly to take our orders. We got the 1/2 rack ribs and the Sunday prime rib special. We also had coupons for free kids meals for their summer reading program. We got one kids pasta and one kids... More

The lady that gave a bad review on Rebecca is wrong! Rebecca is the best server that Bugaboos has. I've been going to Bugaboos for more than six years and Rebecca has always been a delight which is so rare anymore!

Spectacular waitress who was very knowledgable of the menu! Would not have the Bloody Mary bartender lacked experience! Would recommend prices also were reasonable for a steak... More

The decor was a little hokey but the service and food were very good. Our group tried a variety of steak and fish dishes and all were satisfied with their meal.
