Decent food and service, atmosphere was, well, what you expect at Bugaboo

Our food was decent. Not bad, but not outstanding. We were not expecting a 5-star meal; we've been to BCSH before and knew what to expect. We thought our 2y/o daughter would love the atmosphere...we got that one wrong. Our daughter was actually terrified of the talking moose! We felt bad... read more

We've been coming here for years and the quality and service have been slowly declining over time. Our server didn't smile until halfway through our meal and didn't seem to be on top of getting our food, though once it finally came out she checked on us regularly. We ordered soup and after 10 minutes I had to ask the... More

We had lunch while on a Christmas shopping trip. The staff was very inviting. We both had a luncheon special for under $8 which provided a more than enough food for both of us. I had a french onion soup and snowbird tenders, the wife had a wedge saled and tenders. The highlight was the margarita's crafted by the bartender... More

Bartender Carmen is the best. She made our day. Our meals were very good. I had the 1/2 roasted chicken. Beer was ice cold on a hot day.

We had eaten here less than two years ago. We had a very enjoyable dinner. This time we were very disappointed. We ate there on a Friday night. We were surprised to find they had no apple juice or fish sticks - on the kids menu.- they ran out of these items. I ordered the Cedar Plank Salmon- came with... More

We always enjoyed Bugaboo Creek Steak House in Newington, NH as one of the evening meals while on vacation in Maine. Something has clearly changed.. We were there on a Saturday night in August and had an over 45 wait because we had six people. Apparently they do not like putting tables together. After a 45 minute wait, we were... More

She let the manager know and she came to the table. She explain receipt changed but agreed it was small pieces. We didn't expect it but she brought... More

Recently our family, 16 of us, went here for a birthday celebration. Service was fine but I/we thought the food was not up to snuff. We had eaten at another restaurant of the same chain in Maine and that was better. It just seemed to lack something and was bland. Granted I only had a build a burger with blue... More

The restaurant is located beside the shopping mall with Macy's, the menu is good withn a lot of choices and good value. The staff are friendly and attentive, its child friendly and has special lunch options, the talking animals keep the kids entertained.
