been going here for years, but stopped going.....management changes, prices got higher, smaller portions, and the animated animals were gone. Nonetheless I went back last night...Used to get a good meal at a fair price. Get this.... The half chicken dinner is now a QUARTER chicken, but they have it on the menu as a half chicken. They charge you... 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...

I always come to this place for the snowbird chicken. Its worth the price of admission. I also like the atomosphere as there are a lot of things going on. My 2 year old sun enjoys just checking everything out and there are healthy alternatives for him like Mixed vegetables instead of fries.

We went on a Sunday. Beer taps not working ( they actually had no bartender which I feel was the real reason the "taps were off"). No big deal. Short staffed, waiter running around like crazy. Food was nothing to write home about. Grilled chicken tough and rubbery, roasted chicken was small, burgers were ok. Very expensive for such poor... More

bugaboo was always a favorite for my kids for their birthdays growing up. it remains consistent, with the wait staff being friendly and attentive. we ordered fish for lunch and the spinach dip appetizer it was very good. it is a themed restaurant so be prepared for deer antlers, moose heads and a talking bison head to greet you.
