We are located on Bangor Mall Boulevard next to Bank of America, in the Hannaford Supermarket Mini-Mall.We have one of the largest parking lots of any Bangor restaurant, and can easily accommodate tractor trailers and campers on most days (Weekends might be a tight fit, due to traffic)We can be reached by getting off I95 at exit 186 and traveling towards the Bangor Mall, then turn in where you see UNO, we are just down the hill from them. Also from Exit 187 by turning into the main entrance of the mall on hogan Road and driving till you pass Best Buy and Arbys, you will see Bugaboo Creek on the right :) Moxie the Moose is out front, you can't miss it!

Ain't what it used to be !!

It's sad to have watched this once favorite eating place drop to where we don't go often anymore. Place needs a total redo. Old and worn out looking. Food is good at best. Smaller salad etc.

Bugaboo Creek Steak House in Bangor still provides a good family environment for lunch or dinner. They still provide great steaks, but it is not as popular in the past.

Used to be my favorite chain around the mall- food quality has definitely gone down hill and the bathrooms are filllllthy (managers should pick up the slack during busy holiday season)...hoping the kitchen is in better shape!

Took the family here while spending the weekend in Bangor. Great steaks, cooked to perfection, not over seasoned or salty. The Caesar salad was slammin! Nice atmosphere and service was super. 5 ppl cost me around $133 with some alcoholic drinks minus our 20% gratuity. Highly recommended. You won't leave there hungry! Didn't try the desserts, way to full after... More

Bugaboo Creek's prices are not warranted for the quality of food and service. Kids ate free, which helped, but the waiter was presumptuous and odd.

First disappointment was an issue with the old reward card program. In July I was told there is a new system and I could get $10 off my meal if I submitted my old card for a new one. Fabulous! I did it and enjoyed the discount on my meal. This time, we wanted to do the same thing with... More

Of the 3 steakhouses in Bangor, Bugaboo is by far the best. The Black Magic Steak, smashed potatoes, and veggies can't be beat.

While traveling, you can get burnt in a heartbeat. You do not really know where to eat, sleep or venture into. If you are traveling on IS-95 and happen to a come across Bangor, Maine, you need to stop and eat at the Bugaboo Steak House. The atmosphere is relaxing. The service is wonderful and the food was excellent. Since... More

I'll admit, I probably came in with too high of expectations, plus it was near closing time. The service was just ok,but the food was decent. I had a prime rib sandwich, but it wasn't the best I've had and the au jus was mediocre. The three cheese mac seemed burnt, which gave it an odd flavor. The place wasn't... More
