Butcher and the Boar lived up to the hype. Especially like the turkey pâté and stuffed jalepanos with peanut butter. Portions of the starters were small but now I know why. Once the entrees were brought out I was in awe. The delicious pork shank looked like something out of the Flintstones. It was smoked to perfection and paired nicely... More

We came here on a Friday night and it was my boyfriend's pick. I reluctantly went and am so glad I did! The food!!! We shared the Wild Boar hotlink to start and I loved it. Spicy and so flavorful. At our server's suggestion, we shared the Smoked Beef Long Rib. It was so delicious and just fell off the... More

I would have probably given this place five stars but the acoustics are terrible. It's a really loud restaurant. One of those places you have to yell to have a conversation at your own table. With that being said, the food is phenomenal. We had the wood grilled oysters and the charcuterie platter appetizers. The smoked turkey pate was out... More

I love this place. Delicious food, great drinks and excellent whiskey selection. A good place for business dinners, or a romantic day out with your meat eating (sorry veggie lovers) girlfriend/boyfriend. They also have a casual "beer garden" more like a beer tent outside where you can enjoy a beer, and one of their fabulous homemade hot dogs.

I've eaten here a number of times and have never been disappointed. Charcuterie is great, the pork chop is out of this world and you'll never have better Brussels sprouts. Great beer selection and wonderful cocktails. This place is a must.

My only complaint about our meal was that we ordered too much food and couldn't finish. I could have eaten the entire menu. The roasted brussels sprouts in hot sauce was the sleeper hit of the night. I keep trying to recreate it. The green chorizo was also amazing.

We had a group of 30 for dinner. The service was impeccable and the food was fantastic. Very memorable meal, served family style. The servers were very attentive, helpful and informative. Truly a great experience.

I rarely rave about burgers (because, frankly, there are a lot of good ones out there, but the one this place serves is up there among the best. We ate in the patio in the back and it had a more relaxed atmosphere than the main restaurant. Tonight they let patrons bring their dogs so there were some patrons with... More

Six of us were seated in the large dining room with the open kitchen view and the noise level had to be at least 100 decibels. It was seriously loud and you had to yell to be heard across the table. We started with a wedge salad - delicious - and everyone agreed they would order it again. We had... More

Flatiron steak was good. Ears rang after leaving. Have never before needed alcohol to wash the taste of broccoli and succotash (on the Mediterranean sea bass) off my tongue.
