Bugaboo Creek is my favorite steak house in the Rochester area, and there are plenty of other options on the menu including, chicken, pork and seafood. I've been going there for years and the service has always been excellent. Besides the excellent steak, I another favorite -- the unmatched sweet potato fries.

I order a medium 8 Oz. Sirloin, with smashed potatoes and asparagus. Steak was perfect medium, server made it clear how it would turn out and that's the way it was served. She was extremely accommodating to the whole party and was very since we joined after the group had their appetizers. If there was a thought it would be... More

My fillet was broiled and rubbery, the shimp tasted frozen, I went here years ago and I remember it being good, not anymore.

We ate at Bugaboo Creek with my husband, sister in law and 86 year old Mom. The environment is fun - picture a slightly Disney-ish lodge (including a talking bison). We were seated quickly, because it was almost empty at 5:30 on a Thursday night. My Mom can be very particular in restaurants and my sister in law had some... More

My mom and sisters and I went to this restaurant while staying at the Hampton Inn next door. We looked up the menu online and it sounded great, so we decided to give it a try. When we first walked in, we realized that the place was almost totally empty, not a good sign for 8 pm on a Saturday... More

We got there about 8 pm and they were very slow, we stood at the door waiting to be seated for a few minutes as no one was at the hostess stand and the bartender continued talking to her customers and ignore us as well. The waitress was very good and attentive, we appreciated that a lot. Now on to... More

Convenient to Hotel, food was good, waitress was very kind, helped me pick out how I would like my steak cooked, it was a bit loud, and a little dirty, but a good experience all around.

In town touring RIT. Grabbed dinner at Bugaboo because we don't have one at home. Dinner was good but nothing that will cause us to drive miles to find another franchise. On par with Outback, TGIFriday, etc. Waitress was friendly.

This restaurant is right in front of the Hampton Inn in Henrietta so it is hard not to go there when time is short and you can simply walk. I was promptly greeted and seated. My server was there instantly for a drink order and help with the menu. My food was delivered quickly. I had a six oz filet... More
