We were sat right away, but the service was slow. It took almost 40 minutes to get our meals from the time we... read more

Bugaboo is a fun dinner. Even though it's a steakhouse I'm a fan of their snowbird chicken. The bread at start of meal is yummy and fresh baked!! Fun decor, good staff. If it's someone's birthday they will come out with a giant moose head puppet to sing and give a kiss (not kidding, not for the easily embarrassed )

I visited this establishment on June 9, 2015 and my total bill came to $22.47. I left a tip of $4.53 for a total of $27. Since I'm a business traveler I don't check to ensure accuracy until I'm doing an expense report. I noticed that Bugaboo Creek Steakhouse had overcharged me. The total charged to my CC was $36.47,...

We decided to go to Bugaboo for a quick bite one weekday evening. The restaurant was rather busy. We were seated in the bar area. The waitress came right over to assist us. However, her voice was very very loud throughout the entire evening. Her service was excellent, but her voice was rather unbearable. I inquired, and found she works... More

I had been there one or two times before, and we went again last week. I should have turned around and left the minute we walked in. The place stunk bad. Food was overpriced for what you get and most of all the cleanliness or lack thereof is appalling. There were ants crawling everywhere, everywhere and I mean on my... More

My husband and I went there because another nearby restaurant that we wanted to go to was closed. I had the steak tips (medium). They were well done. The mushrooms had an unfamiliar flavor that I did not like. The green beans had a strange taste, as well, so I did not eat them. I didn't expect much from this... More

Ordered combination steak tips, coconut shrimp, and wild rice. Wild rice was tasteless. coconut shrimp was good, but only had 4 in serving. I ordered steak tips medium rare, but I was served well done. We also ordered steak tips rare, but they came out well done as well. We were halfway done with our meal before the steak tips... More

Not bad. $36 with beer, steak with 2 sides, bread, tax, and tip. Similar to other big box steakhouses like Longhorn. What I expected, but hoping for something better.

No one eats here. Not much choice on menu for either lunch or dinner. Waitstaff ar hard to understand and not very attentive.

The family and I went out for my birthday. I was dying for a great Prime Rib. Bugaboo delivered on this promise. I highly recommend the Prime Rib. I ordered it with fries and a salad. I left very full. The kids loved the rib eye and coconut shrimp. The service was excellent! The waitress was always making sure we... More
