Bogarts has fantastic food! They have food for everyone! Adults, kids, veggie eaters, meat eaters, etc! Their food is cooked perfectly and their staff is friendly and attentive! The Portobello Mushroom burger is a must!! I highly recommend this place!

Wrong order delivered. Had to wait while the order was corrected. When it arrived the steaks were horrible, over cooked and full of gristle. No full bar...beer & wine only.

The food was good. The atmosphere was good. There was a long wait but it wasn't as long as I had thought it would be. (We was there around 7 pm)
