Dinner with "cockroach" – The food was decent, however we did not dine alone. Yes we had a little guest know as a cockroach have dinner with us. We told our waiter and he did take care of the little fella but only offered up a free desert. I believe managment should have paid a visit but never showed their face. I've dined at many restaurants and have never had this happen. I suggest you skip this place.
Not Worth it!! – Not sure what the buzz is all about with this place but definitely not worth the visit. The seating area is cramped, the tables are so close to each other you can literally hear the conversations from each of your neighboring tables.
The catch for this place is to serve a steak that's the size of a small roast but unfortunately the quality of the meat is maybe a half step above what they serve at Applebees or Chillis and it's cooked only one way, burnt on the outside, rare on the inside. Six people in my party ordered steaks ranging from medium rare to well done. They all came out the same-burnt or as the waitress put it, "charred" on the outside and rare in the middle. The waitress acted like I just ran over her cat when I sent back my steak.
The service is terrible. Very arrogant, condescending and down right rude. the behavior of the manager wasn't much better. Also, a two hour time limit after dropping about $400 despite having to wait almost 45 minutes for our entrees.
Good food, great service! – Just had the greatest steak ever, but even more than that, I just experienced the best service. We had a waitress named Heather and she rated an 11 on a scale of 10. I have enjoyed many meals at Bogarts and will look forward to many more.
Great steaks but service/management attitude stinks! – This is the first time I've ever been told table time was limited. Not only that, the staff & management was really rude about it. Waitress kept bothering us to get us in and out quickly. When we complained, management came and told us it was true, we would have to leave as they only allowed 2 hrs to eat and we were late. Gratuity is mandatory 18% for parties of 6 and it definitely was not deserving. We barely finished our food when it was time to give up the table. So we asked to move to the bar for dessert & finish drinks, where the service was worse and we were pushed out by the Kareoke guy. The food was great, but who wants to be rushed. It would have been OK if we could actually enjoy the great food. They lost my business and referrals.
staff leaves sour taste after good meal – i would have given the place five stars if it weren't for the management...they treat you like you are privlidged to be eating in their restaurant. not willing to correct wrongs with food.
This place is a triple delight! – I have been to Bogart's Charhouse three times and I was not let down. The food is uncomparable. I am a steak lover and I have never a steak quite like this one before. The porterhouse is the baum. The service was good. On one occasion I had to wait about 30 minutes for a table but the food is worth the wait. I will be visiting again.
Cozy '70s-style atmosphere and monster-size steaks make for a casual, comfortable local favorite. – In Short
Not only are the steaks at this Homewood restaurant the size of New England states, but meals also include numerous sides and extras. In addition to excellent crusty bread, there's a relish tray of fresh, crunchy vegetables, soup or salad, plus vegetables and choice of potato, from thick-cut fries to standard baked or double-baked. If appetizers tempt, try the crispy blooming onion, chicken fingers or buttery potato skins.
O M G – This place was awesome!!!!! I got a cajun chicken pasta since I don't eat red meat - excellent flavor and huge portions. My husband's 3# porterhouse was cooked to perfection - med rare. He said it melted in his mouth. We've been back, will keep coming back, and haven't found anywhere else that compares in flavor, quantity, and pricing. $24.99 for the porterhouse with all the trimmings - now that's a deal!
Wait staff is definitely hard to find when you need them. I'd suggest ordering pitchers of beverages or a couple at once, since you'll be long empty before you ever see the waitress again.
