Butcher & the Boar opened in 2012 in Minneapolis, MN, with a simple idea. Create a festive and communal dining experience with American craft food, beer and bourbon. We are a steak and smoked meats house. We believe that top notch ingredients sourced from local farms and premium purveyors and prepared with superior culinary technique is the secret to great food.

We were in town for a business meeting. Wanted to check out the restaurant that was within walking distance of where we were staying. Very rude staff from the moment we walked in. Not a fun experience.

We were a group of two couples. We started with the sausage sampler plate, and our entrees included the tenderloin, an Atlantic char special and another type of sausage. We thought all were great. One found one of the sausages a little too spicy (but...More
