“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

The decor and vibe is great, our server Ed was attentive but not pushy, our food was amazing! Small menu that is ever changing so the attention to detail is super. Glad we gave it try when I was out with my girlfriends because I have been back with my husband!

“Great sandwiches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Chances are if you are visiting Milwaukee as a tourist or for business you'll find yourself in the Third Ward.

This butcher shop/sandwich place is just on the south edge of this entertainment district and can easily be missed but if you venture one block east of Broadway you'll find some of the best sandwiches the city has to offer.

We stop by about once a month to see what's being offered and have never been disappointed. The choices range from typical roast beef, brisket and pork but also venture into tongue, lamb and pate.

During the day when the butcher is working we usually skip sitting at a table and sit at the bar overlooking the shop.

The dinner menu is a bit more varied with more small plate items.

Highly recommended. One of our special places in the city that we enjoy.

“what a surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

My friend and I had lunch Bavette and when he said it was a place to eat inside a butcher shop, the image wasn't one that I looked forward to but this is a wonderful idea and serving wonderful food. Busy lunch, great sandwiches and beer, delightful staff and a serious butcher, not some kid off the street, working away in the center of the room and chatting with folks who ask for special cuts of meat. Big ceilings, lots of light, really well done food. What a place and suspect if summer ever gets here, will be great venue to sit outside and watch the busy third ward go by.

“Casual, local food at a great price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

Love the food and offbeat selection of wine & beer. Menu is sourced locally and is modestly priced. Place is also a butcher shop so anything with meat will be a great selection. One of the best in 3rd ward.

“Great addition to Milwaukee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

Dined here for small plates. Had a prosciutto and olives that were pretty good. Meat was amazing the olives seemed like ordinary jarred off the shelf. A bit overpriced also. But the beef sliders. They were outstanding. Flavors of beef cooked rare and cheese caramel onions with mushrooms and truffle oil. Wine was also very good and priced well. Great and different. We'll be back.
