Worst Lobster Ever!!!! – We order a carryout which consists of queen size filet mignon and a lobster dinner. The lobster was overcooked and had no taste. I called and spoke with the manager who stated that what happens when you order lobster, I told me that was not true because we had ordered lobster five times within the last two months. He didn't care! I told him we received no steak sauce of butter for the lobster, they were just condiments (but needed for the food). Our carryout bill was $80 and to get no response. This will be our last time eating at Bogarts, we should have went to Red Lobster.
They Don't do Aldente Pasta! – I went for dinner with my mom; she ordered the pork chops, I the Florentine angel hair. They bring out a veggie appetizer tray, along with freshly baked bread. They dont give you an option of butter or olive oil like most decent restaurants would. We ordered a glass of Cabernet and it came in a hot glass, thus making the wine hot. The wine otherwise was very good. We had the french onion soup, it was salty and unoriginal. The pork chop was not at all seasoned, no flavor, and it was dry. The pasta was a definite loser; it was mushy, and the sauce was so loose and soupy. The spinach was not chopped for the florentine. The sauer kraut for the chops tasted like collard greens. Im never going back there, not even for free.
Don't order the ribs!!!!! – Had the 1/2 slab ribs. Nasty!!! No taste, way overcooked. Sauce was the worst that I have ever had. My son tried the ribs and said they were the worst that he had ever had.
The waiter asked if I wanted a box to take the leftover ribs home. I told him to throw them away because they were bad. I only ate 2 ribs. You think that they would tell the manager that there is a problem with the food when a customer leaves 90% of the food ordered on the plate to be sent back. Never again. The place used to have good food. Total waste of time and money.
Will not return – I was very disappointed today. My family and I (7 of us) went to lunch here for my husband's birthday. Although the vegetable tray was good, not one of us enjoyed the food. Four of us had a beef dish and it had no flavor--my daughter never requests steak sauce until today. The fish was overcooked and the bacon was undercooked. I remember Bogart's when it was a great restaurant. What happened?
never again – this place has been competely screwed by their "new" managers.
the food overall is horrible, with the exception of the vegetable tray, they don't have to cook it.
everything else would be better coming from any, and i mean any soup kitchen.
don't waste your time or money unless you just want a a drink in the dirty bar.
Bogart's Charhouse – After reading several recent reviews of this resturant I must admit I was somewhat apprenhensive about visiting this establishment. However, on Saturday, March 26, 2011 I took a chance and dined in at Bogarts.
There was adequate parking, and a rather large population of patrons when we arrived. We were politely greeted once inside, and immediately greeted and seated at a nice table by the Manager! Shortly thereafter our server greeted us and we found her to be very warm and courteous as well. My wife orderdered a fillet steak and I swung for the fences with the Kings Cut! The steaks were prepared to our satisfaction and tasted very good too! Clean environment, warm & courteous manager and staff, very good dining experience! Semper Fidelis!
Bogart's = Bogus – Too bad you can't give less than 1 star. They have relish trays to start you off with, which was ok. The ribeye I ordered was less than rare in the middle. It was actually raw, and even the manager acknowleged that fact. I ordered it medium. They got me another ribeye (30 minutes later) and it was medium, but a tough piece of meat. I attempted to negotiate with the manager, but she became crass, and basically told me I got a new steak, so there was nothing else she was going to do. I have never had a tough ribeye until today.
This was the first and last time I will EVER go to Bogart's
Good fatty steaks but awful wait staff! – Bogarts is a decent steak house- typical mid-priced fare and usually very busy. The joy for me was a full blown steak dinner as a carryout! Woah! They do have some of the best beets (pickled with onions, mmmmmm!) in the relish dish and good bread to sop up the steak juice... Now, while Bogarts steaks are good (aged, charbroiled and thick!) they are fatty to boot. I always felt my arteries clog every time I went there and blood pressure would shoot through the roof from some of the rudest wait staff ever! If you go to Bogarts you'll be totally conflicted- do I like this place? I think I did, but, wait, staff are jerks but the food isn't bad...
Too high priced for what you get mediocre everything! – What happened to Bogarts? First, my husband ordered a martini and was told blue cheese olives were $0.75 extra each ! We ordered steaks and shrimp scampi. The steak was the same as other reviews. Charred on the outside and rare in the middle. The shrimp was served in the shells with garlic butter in a small plastic cup on the side.The double baked potato was like paste. I have tasted better out of the frozen food department in the grocery store! We asked the server to box some extra food and was handed a container and had to do it ourselves. We mentioned to the waitress there were lots of gnats flying around our food and she told us the management was aware of the problem and were trying to solve the problem. Uck. Food was only OK. Service was poor and place needed to be fumigated.
Poor Customer Management – On May 8, 2010 I was at Bogurts for my graduation, birthday, mother's day with a party of 12 people. We arrived a approximately a hour and and half early. These reservation were made two weeks prior.
The reservations were made for 7:30 pm, at 8:30 we were still in the bar waiting, I spoke with the manager who stated that the party before us was approximately a hour late, the manager offered to place us at two different tables, which was totally unacceptable. The manager was not accomodating at all, he showed no concern for the situation.
The waitress, brought out the meat and approximately 10 minutes later returned with the baked potatoes. We had three different checks on one of the checks it should have been charged the eighteen percent gratuity it was for six people but she charged the other two people eighteen percent also. I called the next day and to this day which is 05/20/10 we have not received a call back.
I have never received this type of service from Bogarts, but in the future I will not consider you in the future, we have always come to Bogurts for special events.
