I ate in the beer garden behind the resturant because I didnt know you needed reservations. They had a good beer selection and simple food. I had a Brat and it was very tasty. Next time I will make reservations.

My husband went here before a Twins game. The service was quick in which we arrived to the game in plenty of time. Our server was polite and helpful. The beer and bourbon lists are pretty impressive. We ordered the pickles (excellent), the mushrooms (super tasty), the spicy sausage platter (sweat inducing), and the apple sundae (awesome caramel but stale... More

I decided to visit this place a few times before visiting to make sure it wasn't a one time fluke. The food is absolutely amazing. The meat is cooked to perfection, and is some of the best cut / prepared in the Twin Cities area. I have been in Minneapolis a few months now and my girlfriend and I have... More

A friend and I went to Butcher & the Boar on a Wednesday night and it was packed. This place is so popular, I seriously doubt they have the traditional slow nights. We had reservations for a table in the lounge, but unfortunately the people who had the table we were booked for lingered, and lingered...and lingered. The host and... More

I had researched on trip advisor and this place seemed to have a lot of reviews so we thought we would check it out. We were stupid as we didn't book a table and the place was packed! We were lucky to get a place at the bar which actually was perfect. The atmosphere was great and you could see... More

I had hse special, T-bone steak, cooked to perfection. Partner had smoked pork chop, again it was delightful. Plus, the wonderful but huge sweet potato. Everything... More

Our group from all over the country in town for a conference chose this restaurant for dinner. Ten strangers enjoying a great meal and conversation. There were so many varieties and portions large enough that we all shared and tasted what seemed like everything on the menu! It was delicious- who knew Brussels sprouts could taste so yummy! The steak... More

I ate stuff I don't normally see, much less eat. Braunschweiger, boar's head cheese, some great cheese and sausages. Steaks and chops are huge. Sweet potato I saw was about two pounds. This is a very interesting place and another must for foodies. Great outdoor patio that is casual, inside is very plush.

This really is a meat lovers, or bourbon drinkers, paradise but that said, everything else we had was great too! Despite our server being a bit out of it (to put it nicely) I still have to say the service was great because as soon as I mentioned it to a different server (who noticed we were out of water...

Two of us had Sat nite dinner here yesterday. It was fabulous. Our first decision was whether or not to take reserved space on patio, as rain was v threatening. We played it safe and went inside, where we had a small tabl for 2. Nice, but pretty noisy in there. We ordered a beer ( v nice beer selection),... More
