Birthday

We go here a few times a year but every February for birthdays. We always have a good time when they bring out the Moose to sing happy birthday. Steaks and deserts are really good. The apple foster is our favorite!

We hadn't been to Bugaboo Creek for a while and decided to visit for a birthday lunch. Service was very good. Food tended to be on the cold side and the portions seemed to be a little smaller then we remembered. We were able to tailor our lunches as some of our party had dietary restrictions. The server kept the... More

We have been going to this restaurant with friends on New Year's Eve for the past 4 or 5 years. We know what to expect and are not disappointed. The food is very good and the kids (aged 9 - 15) have a good time. If you have a birthday, the staff sings to you and you have to "kiss... More

The food was good but when you go to a steakhouse you should not find most of the menu to be everything but. The food was good but the service was very slow and if you. Wanted bread. You had to ask than wait while while they made some.

Our waiter seemed annoyed at the outset that we did not order cocktails or take him up on the appetizer he "always likes to recommend". We ordered 2 wedges which were decent enough, but we were barely halfway through our salads when our entrees were delivered to the table!! The reason could not have been a desire to turn over...

The old motif of animals and talking trees was dropped 2 yrs ago but it is coming back. Waiter said they are slowly moving back to the old form. The place was quite slow and the service was great. Food was very good, ribs were meaty and done to perfection.

My family and I have been coming here to celebrate various occasions for years and we always enjoy it. We find the Ribs, the Black Magic Steak and the Snowbird Chicken to be our favorites. Will continue to enjoy this place...
