We six guys had dinner here one Thursday evening. Due to staff turnover, the owner personally waited on our table. Service was good and the meals were tasty. We asked if he would find us some dinner music via his satellite system, which he kindly did. One of our guys had a birthday on that particular day and the owner treated him royally! Overall it was a good experience.

We were a group of six friends staying for a few days at the lodge. This being shoulder season, Buglers was closed mid-week. We had dinner there on Thursday, (open Thursday to Sunday I think at this time), and our meals were excellent. Nicely prepared and nicely presented. I recommend the ribs with hose potatoes.

Our server was very friendly. The wine I ordered appeared to have been from a bottle that had been opened for a very long time and was barely palatable. Our meals took forever which was odd because we were only one if two couples in the restaurant. Apparently the cook didn’t see the order come up when the server put it in. When the food came it was good but nothing special. I was also starving and would have eaten anything at this point. Additionally there was no background music in the place so it was almost awkwardly quiet. They did give us a free drink for the delay on our food. Unfortunately I was brought another glass of the horrible wine. Also very expensive.

This used to be a high class restaurant but with the many changes of ownership and chefs, the fare is basic, EXPENSIVE and average. poor service (the appy came after the entree) and not very attentive

We stayed for two nights at the Elkwater Lake Lodge. Buglers Restaurant is part of the property and because we arrived late, it was our only option for a bite to eat. Thank goodness! It didn't look like much when we walked in but the decor does not reflect the food (which is amazing) or the service (which is friendly and attentive). We had the Wild Mushroom Bruschetta which just might be the best bruschetta we have ever had. We also had the Spinach Berry Salad which was light and delicious. We sat down that night thinking we'd be searching out restaurant options the next day, and instead ate all of our meals there! Breakfast the next morning was an omelette, which I don't usually order but took a chance and it was amazing. We went back for dinner and Buglers did not disappoint. We cannot recommend it enough. If there is any criticism, it is around the menus. There are two of them although it seems you can only order off of one. It makes it a bit confusing, and can be disappointing because we'd picked an item off one menu and were then told those menu items were not available. Probably time to create one new menu. Still, that would not be enough for us to stay away!
