The food here isn't bad. I had the half pound burger. It was cooked the way I ordered it and arrived at the table in a reasonable amount of time. No complaints about the wait staff. The food is okay - nothing special, but not something that needed to be sent back to the kitchen. The environment leaves a lot... More

Wow! What a great lunch. We had elk burgers, hot dogs, and chicken sandwiches. All were great. The sweet potato fries with marshmellow creme dipping sauce were quite delicious. We finished with some huge waffle ice dream cones. They were more than we could eat. Overall, I highly recommend this place.

The food was excellent!! The elk burger was amazing, served on a perfectly toasted bun with fresh toppings. My husband and I did have the misfortune of coming while a few friends were having an eating contest. The crowd and the cheers were very loud but once it cleared out everything was amazing. The acoustics in the building make things... More

Even though the price was a little steep, that would not stop us from coming back here. The burger was seasoned perfectly. I had a "Settle for Less" while my husband had the second biggest one. He was all geared up to try the "Big Ugly" but changed his mind when we sat down. The fries were really good.

Went there with some family and friends for my birthday. Great food! Their elk burger it to die for! Also, all their ice cream is made in house. I have been there several times and even though the service is sometimes slow, the food is worth waiting for.

My daughter really did want to try the "Big Ugly" challenge until we showed her just how big it was. We sat on the back patio and they made every accommodation to help get her situated with an extra chair so she could keep her leg elevated which earned big points in my book! (she tore her MCL at a... More

Went to Bub's with a group of friends. Three of the five of the attendees had not been there before. The wings are some if the best in town, the elk burgers were cooked perfectly and the service was outstanding. Burgers are great here, but if you like wings, these are hard to beat!

The burgers are good, but the wings are fantastic! They are crispy, spicy fried chicken, no sauce. Amazing! The sweet potato fries with marshmallow dipping sauce....or anything with that sauce: yummo! I would give this place a 5 if it weren't for the consistently long wait for the food, pretty much every time I've been, regardless of the crowd.

When we ordered waitress said that medium well was no pink and medium was a slightly pink center. Where i come from slightly pink is medium well so idk if this is their standard or if the waitress...
