I tried to eat at Bugsy's during a subsequent visit to Rhinelander only to find that it has permanently closed.

Nice owner and really big, tasty burgers. Nice lunch stop. Beer was cold and conversation was great. Downtown area not much but a very nice place to eat.

I was visiting Rhinelander for business and came here for dinner with a colleague. Neither of us expected a fine dining experience which was indeed the case. But, what we got was a solid all around experience. The food was tasty, beer selections were good, and service was timely and attentive. All at an attractive price. I'd definitely come back.

Great pub food! Good burger and fries, reasonably priced. We're always treated well and feel that the staff is always glad to see us and appreciates our business. The spaghetti and meatballs are tastey and enough to feed two hungry adults.

We visit Rhinelander every weekend during the summer and have eaten at Bugsy's. Food is average at best and poor when accounting for the service and cleanliness. It wouldn't take more than a few days of cleaning and training for the wait staff to make this a destination. Sandwiches are average. Fish fry was greasy each time. Since the kitchen... More

I love Bugsy's and have been there several times now. We frequently go there for our girls' nights as it's a nice, relaxing atmosphere that's never too loud or overcrowded, so it's easy to sit and mingle and take our time. I also bring my family there when they come to visit as it's not as rowdy as some of... More

3 of us went to Bugsy's for dinner. 2 of us had been on the road all day and were pretty well exhausted so we wanted to go some place informal. Bugsy's hit the spot! Great selection of beers, even for folks like me who generally don't drink beer. Menu is generally sandwiches with some other entres thrown in. I... More
