Butcher & The Boar was seriously impressive. I have been hearing good things since it opened and finally went last weekend with a friend. There were no reservations available (we called day of), but we took our chances and were able to find seats at the bar on a Saturday night. We ordered drinks (it was hard to decide!), then... More

Probably wont have enough space to say all I want to say. Upside: very convenient downtown location. Excellent food and we had a great server (Chris). Definitely try the red hot Brussels sprouts (or dont because you may never want to eat them any other way again). The skillet cornbread was great too--there were many other items we wanted to...

My family from Denver really enjoyed our "family style" dinner. We appreciated being seated in the 'small dining room' as it can become very noisy!! In the winter, while driving down Hennepin Ave you can smell their delicious meats, etc

Went for dinner with some friends, no reservation made. We could find a free table in the patio as the restaurant was packed. The menu they have for the patio is different from the restaurant and it´s more focused on cocktails and something to bite. Some sandwiches I saw were appealing though; however not many healthy options. We were lucky... More

The smoked peanut butter stuffed jalapeños were fantastic! Make sure you reserve in advance. We really wanted to go, and went early one evening. They were booked until 11pm, so we went out for some entertainment and snacks at piano bar down the street and went back to the Butcher and the Boar later for some more treats!

Butcher and the Boar has incredible food. This is the second time I have eaten here. Their sausages are some of the best and diverse I've eaten, and their mac n' cheese with pancetta is wonderful. But probably one of the best things I love about this restaurant is their bourbon selection one of the most extensive lists I've seen.... More

Took advantage of a trip to the city to make a reservation at Butcher & The Boar. This restaurant had been on my list of to-do's for quite some time. Subconsciously I thought this was just another steakhouse featuring more game...boy was I wrong. The creativity of this menu really blew me away. House-made sausages, charcuterie, and a use of...

Smoked Olives- A bit spicey but good. Beer Battered Fries- Also very good. Lobster sandwich- Excellent T-bone steak excellent. Desert apple something- cinnamon donuts with vanilla ice cream- apple cobbler-... More

This is by far one of the best restaurants in Minneapolis. My husband and I love to take friends and family to Butcher & The Boar and order family style. I'm typically not a big meat eater, but I LOVE the meat here. Our favorite things are the Texas beef link, the wild boar hot link, the pork chop, the... More
