    We've dined for several years now at the Bugler & it won't be the same without Chris our waiter! I'm thankful for Heather BT she makes the best Lemon Drop Martinis and always provides First Class service! Some of the food has declined but for the most part their Pork Chops still rock, lobster isn't the same but still good. Seabass & scallops are great! Service at the tables can be slow and not sure why this time of year since it's a slower time. We were spoiled by Chris!

    Everything about the experience was great. Our server was great, I apologize I don’t remember her name. Couldn’t ask for more with the quality and taste of the food. It is a beautiful restaurant.

    I had visited The Bugler last weekend and our server then was really talking up the Sunday brunch. She said it was $40 with $5 mimosas or bloody marys. She talked about the food on the buffet, etc. I decided to take my mom for Mother's Day. I made the reservations through Open Table and tried to look at a menu, but the link did not work. I tried this several times. I never saw anything about the price, just was going off what server had said weekend before. I was a little taken back when I received the check, $60 each for brunch and $5 mimosa and bloody mary. While it was good, it was not great. Service was slow for drinks. There was a fair number of people there, but by no means crowded or full.

    Beautiful restaurant. The food was outstanding! We had the shrimp cocktail, rack of lamb, and filet. Everything was perfect. The quality matched the price of the meal. We will be back!

    My husband and I always like to eat at any restaurant bar when possible. We enjoy visiting with the bartender and patrons. We were thrilled to see Diane making our cocktails. It made my pre-mothers day extra special.
