“Customer Unfriendly”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Recently went to Bogars, my wife was a fan. The special was six different types of sliders. I thought this would be a great way to try their food. The order came with three sliders and we chose three different ones to try and share. Our waiter took the order and then came back to tell us the Chef/Owner thought it was too much work to make 3 different kinds so they all had to be the same.REALLY? He asked us how our meal was on the way out. I asked him why he couldn't make 3 kinds for us to try. He said it was too much work, that this was their first night doing this. It will also be the last for me. Nice set up, good waiter, poor customer relations. That is enough for me to say never again.

“plain food and atmosphere”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

very plain. The owner was nice but has to be more clean if he wants to come out and say hi.

“Great Place for Fish & Fun”
Reviewed May 22, 2012

Juan has done a great job of bringing new Mexican tastes to Hartland. Some of his best are the Friday night specials: Fish fry $9.95 Baked Cod $10.95 Caribean Fish Fry [Coconut Breading] $12.95
I love the Caribean coconut and it comes with a sauce you might expect with coconut shrimp. The portion is very generous. Quite a change from traditional Wisconsin Friday fish fry (though the traditional is excellent as well). The place was super jumping when we went Friday before Cinco. Get there early.

“OK”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

We went to Bogar's for Taco Tuesday on Valentine's Day. The fish taco's were good and the chorizo taco's. The ground beef and chicken taco's were just OK. The steak taco seamed lack significant seasoning. The atomsphere is decent ... definitely comes off more as a bar than a restaurant. I'm told the margarita wasn't particularly good.

Our service was decent, but there was an accidental overcharge on our bill that was corrected without any issue.

This place is a decent value, but definitely not the best place in town. All in all...just OK.

“At least it was colorful-serving raw hamburger and green potato chips”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

Lunch began promisingly - the 'hostess' brought us menus along with warm tortilla chips and two types of flavorful salsas. If only we had stopped there. Service was VERY slow even though we were the only customers in the place. Fresh fruit was listed on the menu as a side choice but not available. Our burgers ordered medium were delivered very rare with a plate full of extremely green home made potato chips even though I had ordered a side of cottage cheese. Waitress remarked oh, we must be out and disappeared. Would have liked mustard for the burger, but waitress never reappeared until we were ready to go. Our bill included an up charge for the missing cottage cheese. Bad food, Bad service, Bad time. Also, seeing the remains of a previous diner's breakfast under our table did nothing to enhance the experience
