We had a large group that was put in a "tent" in the outdoor courtyard-beer garden area. This area I'm sure is hopping in the summertime, but even seemed quite permanent for a tent in the winter. Full bar and bathrooms like any building. Food was really good but I will admit my feet got cold, tho the room was... More

My son and I had read and heard very good things and decided to give this place a try. Glad we did as Butcher & the Boar was excellent! Staff are friendly and professional. Our waitress Kristine was very efficient and helpful. Menu selections you will find will be varied and of very good quality. Flavors are excellent. This isn't... More

We had tried many times to get reservations as we were visiting from out of town on business. It was worth the wait. What a menu and all the unique combos were excellent. I must say that I was blown away as everything from decor, ambiance, menu, staff was not what I expected. Highly recommended!

Come here all the time. Never had a bad experience. Long bone is great. Sausages really good. Pickles and charcuterie.

Walk in the door and smell the wood smoke. Nice! They smoke in house which is awesome. We had the wild boar link sausage which was tender and flavorful. Their menu version of Surf and Turf includes long bone beef rib that fell off the bone and lightly tempura battered scallops that were perfectly seared, served with broccolini. Butchers Cut... More

The service was exceptional. The food was all Italian and that heritage we know well. All of the food courses were spot on. The Chef even came out to visit with us. The atmosphere was very comfortable. As the times are, many restaurants are crowded and noisy, this was not. Very much enjoyed this dinner with my family.

Our party of six had a very good experience here including some great food (some very good) and a terrific server. However, don't expect to converse without shouting as it is very loud. We all split the peanut butter filled jalapenos that were excellent and unusual. Following this we had the sausage sampler. Again the offerings were very good. Personally,... More

My husband and I ate here on a Friday night. We had reservations but the table wasn't ready when we got here. The hostess tried to seat us in the "lounge section". Don't sit there- it's pretty cramped, noisy, and cold. We sat at the bar and had a few appetizer while we waited for our table. The food was... More

We came here with another couple... had two drinks each, a dinner entree each and we shared two sides and our bill was over $400 total... this is steep. Now the food was outstanding but the beverages are way over priced. I had the eye of the ribeye which was great, my wife had the pork chop which she loved.... More

This place is the best thing in Minnesota. Every time I am Minneapolis we make sure Butcher & The Boar is on the agenda. Business trip or personal - the place is a must do. The sausage and the beef rib are the thing. Anything on the menu is awesome. The bourbon selection is extremely varied with options galore. Definitely... More
