“local spot”
Reviewed August 6, 2009

all the locals said this was the best steak in town...the place was very crowded and the staff are extremely friendly. ( seems the entire town is friendly which is nice) we had the rib eye and I have to say it was a good steak but certainly not the best...so my theory is, it may be the best steak in that town but not the best steak you will ever enjoy. No full bar, beer and wine only and the wine is Sutter Home...

“My steak tough, wifes fairly tender”
Reviewed June 30, 2009

Another reviewer described their rib eye steak as shoe leather. I must agree. Bogart owes me an apology. However my wife loved her very tender Porter House Steak. We will go back soon, but not for the shoe leather. The service was excellent.

“Best filet I've ever had”
Reviewed August 18, 2007

Vegetarians will renounce their lifestyle if they taste the filet mignon served at Bogart's! This was probably the best filet I've ever tasted, cooked just right, tender, delicious flavor. I had a sweet potato with cinnamon-sugar and butter as well. It was very good. My husband had the filet and a delicious baked potato. The salads, although not made of more exotic greens, were very tasty. Service was truly accomodating and moved at exactly the right pace--not too quick and not too slow. We live in Asheville, about 45 minutes away, and will make a point of eating at Bogart's again.

“Great Staff, Good Food”
Reviewed March 13, 2006

Nice, family restaurant with friendly staff. The trout was suprisingly good. My mother in law had hamburger, which was fair. Father in law had chopped steak, which was a little tough. Definitely a local hangout and fun place to people watch.
