Love this place

Everytime we are in town we go here. Amazing food and drinks. The green chorizo sausage is the most delicious thing ever. Don't be nervous about the green color it is heavenly. They also make great old fashioneds and Manhattans.

We were a group of 6 adults visiting Butcher & The Boar on a Saturday night in January. We were all very excited since none of us had been there before and had heard very good reviews. First of all the positives: Service was excellent. Since we were all new to the restaurant, our server gave us some very good... More

My son and I recently ate dinner at the Butcher and the Boar and it was fabulous! We shared the sausage sampler which was amazing! Easily the best sausage I've ever eaten. My son ordered the Butcher's cut for his entree which was plank steak with red peppers. He said it was delicious. We also shared the mac and cheese... More

I was solo so one never gets the best/fastest service. My salad took 15 minutes which seemed a little long, but keep reading as wait was worth it. Great whiskey selection and good beer selection. Although known for other dishes I had the Lobster (salad sandwich) which was okay. The Wedge was excellent. Thought it would be a huge wedge... More

I came here with a coworker on a business trip. We had a great experience. The ambiance was very cool and the service great. I had a sausage and my friend had a steak. Both were very good. The alcohol selection was great, and we had an absolutely amazing barrel-aged stout (Epic's Big Bad Baptist Imperial Stout). In all, a... More

We were a party of three and did not have a reservation. They were fully booked, but we put our name in at the bar, grabbed a drink and waited for seats to open up. The bar is really long, and the decor was inviting. The drinks were well mixed, and the selection of bourbon was impressive. The food was... More

This restaurant had rave reviews and they were well deserved. They had a great variety of beverages on tap, several local brews. We are Old Fashioned fans and theirs were amazing. We shared the Green Chorizo, brussel sprouts and long rib. The long rib was glazed in molasses and sriracha. Yes the meal was pricey, but well worth the money.... More

Walked in into a full restaurant and bar. We were told there was only standing room and the next table would be available in 30-45 minutes. After some confusion at the host stand we were sat in the bar area within 10 minute. The bartender served us at a table and she was awesome. The drinks were great and so... More

Amazing selection of meats, and interesting side dishes. Portions for meat were large, which helps justify some of the prices :) Interesting and appealing beer and cocktail list. Ambiance was great, dark, cozy. Host was extremely accommodating. Valet was a great option on a cold winter night.
