Almost "Tapas"

A lot of the options can be shared "tapas" style, which we loved with our group of 4 because we were able to sample so many more things. I believe the floor is $30,000.00 worth of pennies!

Expected high hopes since Trip Advisor and Yelp said nice things, but we got crammed in a booth with other couples when clearly after 8 pm on a Tuesday night they could have separated the row of couples. The food is good, except for the raw Flat Iron steak, which we would have sent back but after waiting over an... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Butcher and the Boar. I can't lie , it can get tight in that dinning room.

We selected Butcher & Boar for our fine dining experience on our journey to the Twin Cities and left mighty impressed. After we were able to snag a 9:45 reservation, we got in and the place was packed with diners of all stripes - families, elderly birthday revelers, well-dressed yuppies, first dates and so on. Room was a bit small... More

Must try the charcuterie and fries. My steak was too heavily seasoned with salt but the menu was interesting. Arrive early. This is a go-to destination for locals.

Start with an Old Fashion from the bar it is fabulous. For an appetizer go with the sausage trio and the fried green tomatoes. The Brussels sprouts and ranch and the corn bread are killer and the long rib is the bomb. When you wake up the next day feeling like crap from all the meat it is still worth... More

We dined here with friends on a recent Friday night while visiting MN. The food and staff were equally exceptional. We started with peanut butter stuffed jalapeños and ended with peanut butter baked Alaska. In between we had the long bone brisket along with sides of Mac and cheese, beer battered fries and corn bread. Every dish had unique favors... More

We split a patio footlong hot dog and had a couple local beers before a show and we both said it may have been the best dog we've ever had. Great snap and well garnished. Patio menu was reasonable with a number of sandwiches, apps and meats for around $10. The outdoor kitchen seemed to care more than most with... More

Thank you so much for reviewing the BG . People tend to forget how good the food is in the beer garden. I think it's one of the best patios in the city, then again I am the GM. Thanks again for the kind words. Cheers, Kevin Fraley More

Highly recommend the sausage platter. Our table of five shared this as an appetizer and it was awesome to get a small taste of the different meats. ALL WERE AMAZING. I had a steak and it was delicious. I wasn't crazy about the long fries, but everyone else in our party loved them. Neat atmosphere and wonderful drink menu. A... More

This is a restaurant where food meets rock n roll and creates a symphony. How can you not like a place that plays Ted Nugent's Catch Scratch Fever. The focus of this place is on meets, sausages and charcuteries and they do it all real well. 30 beers on tap. Beer garden in the back of the restaurant. Up beat... More
