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.

We arrived at 6pm on a Friday evening and the parking lot was full. We thought for certain we were facing an hour wait. We walk to the front and to our pleasant surprise the entrance was barren of people. The hostess greeted us upon our arrival with a smile and we were seated immediately. The atmosphere is rustic and... More

This is the second year in a row that I visited this restaurant on my travels. I was pleasantly surprised to find it had not changed at all. The menu was a little different but the knowledgeable server helped us out. The food was quick, delicious and plentiful. My wife and I brought home a doggy bag and didn't share... More
