On our way North, stopped for an overnight stay in Newark, DE. Before checking in at the hotel, we looked for a decent place for dinner. Just happened to see Bugaboo...and gave it a chance. Quite an interior! Very "themed" with the Canadian Rockies as the backdrop. Looked like a big cabin with a roaring fire and animal heads mounted... More

Typical chain style restaurant with average food and pretty reasonable pricing. Lots of fried and greasy stuff on the menu. Nothing special but truly quite acceptable for a family style establishment

An interesting Jackson Hole styled place but in need of renovation, food was good but pricey. French onion soup was very good and the specials that included appetizer, entree, and dessert was a good deal at $15. Daughter said her and hubby were there several years ago and some of the animals made sounds and moved but the seven year... More

I had great attentive service for an early dinner. I did not splurge on the steaks, they seemed pretty expensive, so the only thing I had for dinner was the Lodge combo. Chicken tenders, spinach dip and coconut shrimp was the dish. Tasty but nothing too spectacular.

Better than Outback. As good as Roadhouse. Spend a few extra dollars and go to Firebirds that is within a quarter mile.

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 went on a Saturday for lunch, my son, wanted to take us all for an after holiday lunch. It wasn't very crowded which was nice and our waitress was very attentive. 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
