    Fabulous: our server, Jonny was attentive yet did not smoother. The staff was sensitive to our dietary restrictions…which we were so grateful for. Excellent menu!

    Food was great, and service was excellent. It was my wife’s birthday, and they did a couple extra things for us! Great atmosphere too.

    As usual, the brunch and service at the Bugler was outstanding. The brunch buffet is fantastic and I highly recommend it. Marnee and Allen are top notch when it comes to customer service.

    We ordered the grilled plank salmon and it was cooked to perfection. Our waitress, Cassie, is just the best and always look forward to dining at the Buglar. Great view of the Oaklawn Track, too.

    Cocktail wasn't made correctly appetizer (shrimp) was tasteless we were looking forward to the shrimp we had had before at the post parade and loved them Soup was ok could have been hotter Filet mignon was just ok Ocean Harvest was terrible and I sent it back. Pasta was gooey not creamy. Most all the seafood was cold and tastless but the shrimp and lobster claw was terrible. Desert was fine

    Many thanks to Rebecca for accommodating our party of 12 on March 30th during the Arkansas Derby! It was a beautiful day, and our waiter was outstanding. I think has name was Alan, and he was so diligent. It was a great day. Highly recommend!
