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

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

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

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

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

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.

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.

Pros: Great Food

Cons: Untimely wait even though we made a reservation.

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.

Pros: None unless you think eating with a cockroack is okay

Cons: COCKROACHES!

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.

Bogart's has great steaks. We've always had great service and they have a huge menu which is consistenly good food. You might have to wait awhile on weekends, so call ahead or be prepared to wait.

The steaks here are simply wonderful. Good menu selection and service is always good. They can accommodate large parties as well. The is always a wait during peak times so go with that expectation and you won't be disappointed.

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.

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.

My children took me here on Mother's Day and it was very crowded. Although we made reservations, we still had to wait at least 30 minutes until our table was ready. But it was worth the wait. The food is delicious! I had the steak and several people in my party had various chicken dishes. Everyone loved their meals and had plenty left to take home. The prices are within reason.

Great restuarant but go on a none holiday

Located in the heart of Homewood, IL
It is candle lite dining with white table clothes but very simple. Although during dinner and weekends there may be a long wait even with a reservation, it is still worth the while. The food is excellent and top quality. The staff is professional and always friendly.
This is a great restaurant for anyone wanting a special dining experience and especially those longing for a great steak.

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.

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.

Cons: Slow/Inept Service, No Reservations, Crowded Waiting Area

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…
