I really looked forward to this new Steak House, sad to say I was extremely dissatisfied with it. I ordered a 8 0z steak dinner, (lucky if it was 6 oz.when I received it) The girl friend ordered a chicken caeser salad, she didn' t like the dressing nor the tiny amount of wafer thin chicken on the salad, I...

Apparently there is a change in ownership. Bugaboo has closed, and the facility is being remodelled. It appears that a new steak house is coming, and with a new name.

I have eatten here about a half dozen times or so for lunch and dinner. When they first opened I really enjoyed it and it seemed like a popular place. Then several years back there was a fire and they were closed for sometime. Upon reopening just something doesn't seem the same. The menu here like most restaurants changes over... More

BC Steak and Sliver Birch Bar has replaced the Bug-A-Boo Steak house. It is a really nice place to eat and all of the animatronics have been removed. The quality of the meats are fantastic.

Decor was pleasing, red, cream, deep gray - booths comfortable. Crisp and modern, with a touch of kitcsh, is how I would describe the interior. The animated animals are gone! While missing many of my favorite dishes, the food was good, served hot and prepared as requested. However, it seems the prices have gone up, as salads are now ala... More

Closed and reopened as something else. Some sort of "upscale ski lodge steak house". Go figure on whatever that may be. Probably won't bother to check out the new gig.

We came yesterday for our 10 year old granddaughters birthday. However, the place was renovated recently, reopening 2 weeks ago. All the talking animals were gone "returned to the forest" as the hostess put it along with the blooming onion. The menu seemed more limited. They were clearly adjusting to the changeover, passing out lunch menus at 5 PM. They... More

My wife and I went there some time back and we had some pretty decent food. I got the ribs and they were falling off the bone..so good. One weird thing was the big moose on the wall moved and talked, if I remember correctly.

I have read the response from R P. of Bugaboo Creek and have a few concerns. First, a brief review from someone who has brought his family there 4 or 5 times a month for twelve plus years. (We remember the fire that burned the first Bugaboo). We came there because the restaurant was kid friendly, the prices reasonable and... More

This has been my go-to place for a reasonably priced steak in a fun, non-stuffy atmosphere. Last time I was there, our server told us they were closing toward the end of February to remodel and rebrand. They will open as a more "upscale" (expensive) place named BC Steakhouse or something like that. If they go more upscale, they will... More
