My best friend Barb and I love Bugaboo creek steakhouse,after a movie we head for Bugaboo. I get a kick out of the talking moose on the wall and the atmosphere of a hunting lodge and country .The menu is varied, the spinach dip with crunchy chips is creamy and delicious as an appetizer, but the steak is what we...

Bugaboo Creek is a very interestingly decorated restaurant. Aside from the Grey Goose vodka geese there are moose, animals and fish mounted all over the place. Some of them move some of the time. All of the servers are given a name to use when they are working. Over the years, Bugaboo Creek has gone down hill in both quality... More

We had appetizers, a sample platter the snowbird chicken is out of this world. Also a large nacho platter, was very good. Everyone enjoyed their meals, my daughter... More

I had high expectations for my first Bugaboo visit. Now I understand why I waited.The sirloin steak tips were very fatty and the food tasted mediocre overall. The service wasn't too bad but there are better dinner options for the price, which is fairly expensive.

This was our first visit back to Bugaboo in quite a while and it was absolutely awful. While our server was courteous and attentive, the food left much to be desired. I ordered the snowbird chicken platter, which I have had it the past and has always been quite good; however, my chicken was soggy and the batter had a... More

Went last night, party of 7. 4 adults, 3 small children. The talking animals not working, and haven't in about a year according to server/hostess. Then she says "they don't want to put the money into it to fix it." Odd thing to tell your guests. Very disappointed as we drove in from PA promising our Grandson's that the "animals... More

We loved the buffalo chicken nachos and will be back for more. Good coffee. Nice atmosphere to sit and enjoy friends. Reasonable prices. Take out is as good as it in and they fix it in nice containers that are sturdy. Great steak salad. Everyone enjoyed everything they had no complaints about the food from this group of 12.

Nothing stood out... We had an order of wings spicy .. Seems like it was coated with Franks red hot. Wings were cold and not crispy. I had the butter blue cheese filet.. It was okay, my husband had the prime rib... It was okay. So it's typical chain food along the lines of steak at applebee or Chilies.

Haven't eaten here in a couple years, but we decided to go for my granddaughter's 22 birthday last night. We took her 10 y.o. step sister because we thought she might enjoy seeing the animated fish and animals . We ordered the BBQ chicken nachos and were pleased to see they had a lot more chicken than last time. Just... More

Our selections were below average to poor. We specifically asked for fries well well done. Made a point of well done. Soggy... More
