Came for a quick anniversary dinner due to shift work rotation. Had Coconut Fish Fry. Plenty of fish but fish was dry. My wife had a Fajita Salad minus the Taco bowl which was very good. Usually those Taco bowls taste like cardboard. This is not the place for a quiet meal as bar patrons very close to dining area.... More

The house fish fry was perch, hand breaded in Panko crumbs and panfried not deep fried. The fries have been changed to the larger type cut of potato and the seasonings are yummy! He makes a homemade coleslaw which is out of this world! We thoroughly enjoyed our waitress Kathy, to whom we wish the best on her retirement! She... More

JC Bogar's is one of those hidden gems in downtown Hartland, tucked into a small strip center on the main street, Cottonwood Ave. It has plenty of room inside, a nice bar, and weather permitting, a beautiful outdoor patio overlooking the Bark River. Juan Bogar, the owner and chef, offers a good variety of American food (great burgers), and Mexican... More

We stopped after Sat. night mass for a hamburger, the couple we were with guaranteed a good burger. I had a wrap instead, it was good, husband had a burger (they are large) and said it was ok. Their home made chips are excellent, a little less salt but very tasty! We had a new waitress and she was a... More

Each time we eat here the service is spot on and the food is wonderful! We especially love the fish fry on Friday nights! It can be very busy, and still your food arrives so quickly! Large menu so everyone can find something they love!

I have been quite impressed by this restaurant not only for it's food, but more so by the chef who has come out of the kitchen and greeted us every single time we have dined here. He always asks us how our meal tastes? Good variety on the menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and great specials like $2 taco... More

I have eaten at Bogar's three or four times and have always been satisfied with the quality of the food and the service. I especially like the outdoor dining area which overlooks the Bark River and is a happy experience in good weather.

If possible, I like to dine outdoors. J.C. Bogar's has a beautiful view. Unfortunately, our tasty food was spoiled by our neighbors who decided to "light up." We ended up dining indoors, due to these inconsiderate diners. Smoking should not be allowed outdoors in dining areas.

This place is a great hidden gem in downtown Hartland, located on Cottonwood in a small shop strip, next to "the Magic Cottage". Juan Bogar has done a wonderful job of bringing authentic Mexican cuisine with equally good drinks (especially margaritas). The prices are reasonable the service is very good. On Friday nights they also have an excellent fish fry... More

Poor service and mediocre food make this a place to skip. It's too bad too because the patio overlooking the Bark River is very nice. Inside seating is not very cozy though.
