This is a terrific, unsung, moderately priced restaurant stuck behiond a bolwing alley in the far suburbs if Montgomery County in Maryland. A haven for tasty burger, delicious steaks, and bountiful sides. Their roasted potatoes are worth the trip alone! The Canadian log cabin lodge motif is a bit hokey and juvenile (a talking and singing Moose head on the... More

Not even close to what it used to be! Every aspect of the menu was different, even smaller portions, but for the same price! Not going back!

We had dinner here recently. It's now called BC Steak House, for some reason, and the interior has been renovated and is quite nice. We had some delicious food - tasty and well prepared. The meal was a bit on the pricey side though.

Bugaboo Creek is a great place to have a quiet meal or a family gathering. The steaks there are superb and I've eaten there a number of times and they have never disappointed me! I get tired of eating at the chain restaurants, even the good ones, and this place is unique! There's plenty of things on the walls to... More

Overall good experience for lunch, we will go back. The restaurant is newly remodeled, clean modern feel, totally different decor with more upscale feel. They are training wait staff, our main server was attentive, trainee much younger, not as seasoned as a server but ok. Food was good, fresh, nice portion size for lunch. Calm chowder, fish and chips and... More

Please see my review on the Maryland restaurant forum. This redo was a very big disappointment. We enjoyed Bugaboo Creek & ate there about 6 times per year. BC Steak the new iteration fails. Higher prices, smaller portions, slower service. A real failure. Atmosphere = 3 Food = 2 Value = 1 Service = 1 Total =1

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...

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
