We happened upon this pricey gem in Minneapolis during a business trip. We shared the smoked pork chop, which was served in 1/4” slices on a sweet potato purée and topped with broccolini. Absolutely the best pork either of us have ever eaten. Also shared...More

Excellent service, delicious food! But, heads up--the beet salad is one of those hilariously tiny things where you look at it and wonder why they forgot to put food on your plate. A few slices of beets for $14--not worth it at alllll. Everything else...More

We had reservations for a table, but there was a short wait and we decided to eat at the bar. We had very good service, lively conversation with our neighbors, and a very tasty over-sized meal portion...we ordered the beef rib. ENORMOUS. We thought we...More

This is a great (small) steakhouse but with a lot of good food and choices you don’t get other places. Everything made at the house. You have a direct view to the chiefs preparing your food over fire. Full house so don’t expect to have...More

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.
