There is nothing here I haven’t had or loved, and I’ve had everything on the menu multiple times. You can’t go wrong. My go to is the Moosechunks (lightly breaded chicken breast chunks) and a Miller lite. Best bar and wait staff in the area,...too.More

We were at Bullwinkles on a Saturday evening. Our wait was less than 10 minutes. There were plenty of people there and constantly coming in. I wish I could review more, but we all had the ribs and they were outstanding. I just used my...fork and got every piece of meat as it just fell off the bone. I will difinitely go back to this place.More

We’ve always had a good meal here—though sometimes there can be a wait. Service always snappy, delicious food for a good price. Occasionally very crowded, but has always been worth the wait. Boris & Natasha should embrace this moose and forget about flying squirrel!

Have eaten here 5 times and find this restaurant as good as any barbeque in Kansas City where I had formally lived. Meat was excellent along with the side dishes, baked potato and onion straws. Glad they offer onion straws as many places only have...the chuncky onion rings.More

Decided to celebrate our anniversary with a lunch time meal. Moosetaters and Artichoke Dip were winners. But sadly the main entrees were quite a disappointment. Ordered Buffalo Chicken Salad with blue cheese dressing. Salad came covered with a very tart viniagrette dressing covering the lettuce,...then topped minimal amount of buffalo chicken and a ton of red tortilla chips. Not realizing the salad had been dressed, blue cheese dressing was put on top of the salad. The first and only bite was disgusting. Our other order was a 1/2 pound Viking burger. There was no way it was 1/2 pound. Probably a quarter pound. Came on toast. Just an ordinary burger. Service was excellent as was the decor but we didn't come to look at the walls. Menu was disappointing. Mainly bar food. This was our second visit but it had been years. At that time the food was excellent, more fine dining. So unless you want ribs or snack type foods, don't waste your time.More

We live in the area but have never tried this place. My husband wanted "really good ribs" for his birthday...and trust me, he's tried a lot. This place did not disappoint. He said their ribs were the best he has ever had at a restaurant....The red skin potatoes are some of the best things I've ever eaten. Good menu with lots of choices and our server was fantastic and suggested the Chocolate "moose" for dessert and it also did not disappoint. Highly recommend .More

Joined colleagues here for dinner, we all enjoyed our meal. I had the rib rack and they were so tender they just fell apart. A great casual atmosphere.

Coming from Kansas City gives me some insight into barbeque and this is the best in Southwest Ohio. Sides are good also.

Was visiting in Miamisburg for the Holidays and received gift card for Bullwinkle’s. The place was packed on weekday evening and you could smell the ribs cooking a block away. The ribs were great and the service was friendly and helpful. Made my trip to...Ohio worth it. So good I want to go again.More
