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.

We stayed in the area and this place was suggested to us by the manager at the hotel. We tried it and were very pleased by the service and the food. Waitress was very friendly and made us feel welcome,food was ready quickly and large portions. Prices were not very high for the amount of food you get.

This restaurant is a cool place for adults and kids alike. The decor is very unique. It's like going into a mountain lodge with animals all around and antler lights and huge fireplace. The food, service, and servers are all good! You must try this place at least once.

Had a very bad experience there with a waitress name Rebecca. We took my son there for his 3 years old birthday. She was our server. From the beginning to the end, she didn’t have a smile to us. She never check with us to say if everything was ok, she came to our table when only it’s NECESSARY- when... More

Never been to one before. I guess you could say it's like a Canadian Outback?? Just neat decor for the north woodsy types. Ample steak and chicken offerings. No frills, what you see is what you get. The food is good old butter, cheese, and grill food but don't let that lull you - the guys cooking it know their... More

Irish family passing thru between Washington and Philadelphia stopped in Newark Delaware for the night. We arrived late to the town and went here to eat. Lovely atmosphere, not the usual ott stuff. We had 4 meals, chicken platter, caribou chicken, magic steak and a burger. All were very good and not too big at all. Lovely staff. One was... More

We were one of three tables in the entire restaurant and had to wait for a server to take our order. The "fresh" bread was hard as a rock and my salad was delivered before my appetizer. The food was good.

Bugaboo is a hidden gem. Bugaboo has the best ribs and caesar salad we have had. All the food we ordered was delicious and the service was great.
