Food and ambience

Local cuisine, American, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Vegetarian Friendly
Butcher & Bee started out serving honest-to-goodness sandwiches made with flavor combinations and food quality usually reserved for fine dining. Now their offerings have grown beyond sandwiches to all types of foods. And they bring them to you from local farmers who produce spectacular flavors. Supporting local and sustainable is not a slogan. It's the right thing to do, and the food tastes better for it.

We descended in this crazy covid world with 11 people and they accommodated our seating. At first we were all irritated with the self service ordering but this riff was removed when the food and drink were promptly served. From the whipped feta, to the...hummus and crudite, All of the food was beyond expectations. I highly recommend this restaurant and its very cool and hip drink program, an unexpected culinary ride that is worth the trip.More

Look at the menu first. Menu is unique & odd at the same time. Food (Double Cheeseburger and Fried Chicken Sandwich) was ok once we figured out what was offered but seemed a bit pricey for the location. Hummus was pretty good. This will be...my first & only visit.More

Check the menu before you come. We had a cheeseburger and chicken sandwich. $39 They dropped the food off at the table. That was the only time they came to the table. No refills or anything. I was terribly disappointed.

Floor has spills on it ...open concrete floor also that detracts from appeal....booths dirty and dusty. Had the cheeseburger....tomatoes were brown, lettuce wilted, tasteless meat...needs seasoning....sangria flavorless...fries semi ok nothing special but for 16.00 for the burger five guys is much better tasting and way...less price. Wont be back for quite awhile.More

Elected to sit out side and try this place. Great variety on the menu and good drinks choices too. Ordered the Feta, Hummus, Veggie Burger, shrimp and grits and Avocado Salad. All cam at different times which was a little off putting, but they were...all good and the service was good too.More

title says it all. Not a great start to our dining experience. Hostess put us at another table. Got the whipped feta with pita and veggies. Pita awesome. Veggies were old. Feta was good. Rest of meal average except for the shrimp and grits which...were so different and just amazing. Thought they might comp a portion of the bill with the rat encounter but did not. Great service from our waitress. We wont be backMore

Hi Mickey, Thank you for reaching out. We are extremely sorry the rat was not noticed before you were brought to your table, nature can be incredibly spontaneous and unforgiving with outdoor seating at times. We are glad that you were still able to enjoy...More

My husband and I loved it here! He loved his burger and I was stocked they had a vegan veggie burger with cashew cheese! Soo good . Their fries and homemade ketchup were awesome as well! Loved the option of kombucha on the menu ....Big thumbs up from both of us !More

Butcher and Bee is just ok. The service suffered a bit because they were short staffed. We were told they didn’t have a bartender and thus could only make drinks which were on the menus… somewhat strange. Anyway, the food was middle of the road....Prices are too high for what you get which really is too bad. They have vegan options which made a few people in our party happy. So, try it, don’t try it; your call.More

We have always loved Butcher & Bee. I could live on the whipped feta! Yesterday's lunch of avocado toast and charred broccolini didn't disappoint. Most impressive? The TLC -- Keeping outdoor tables appropriately distanced. Trained staff wearing masks. Constant sanitizing. Same superb service and well...priced menu.More

Nice food and very good service. This is more of an order and share place vs getting your own entrée, so our group did our best. I would recommend the hummus, bacon-wrapped dates, and pickled vegetables as appetizers. For your main sharable course, the kabob...skewers (shrimp and chicken) as well as the lamb meatballs were very good. About the only drawback is the very loud rap music with a speaker directly over our table made it difficult to hear people at the table. This was reasonably priced and I would recommend it for my fellow tourists.More
