After several visits to this restaurant, we still find it to be our restaurant of choice for a fine dining experience. The food is always perfectly done and well presented and the service is excellent. We were a large group of friends the other evening (10) and everything was perfect. Our servers were very attentive without being obtrusive. The ambiance was unsurpassed - from the burning fireplace in the paneled dining room to the view overlooking the golf course and the ocean beyond. Indeed, like dining in a private mansion. We will be returning soon.

Yes, the ambiance is fabulous particularly if you like living in the past but the menu whether for lunch or dinner is basic and bland like the food and the service. You should note that the locals have rallied behind the owners to exclaim the virtues of this place. But it's like most Island eateries good one day bad the next. And the prices...they just keep going up and the portions keep going down. This new kid on the block isn't ready for the big time. Save your money for the Tigh Na Mara or Giovanni's.

We visited Butlers for the first time on Sunday with a visitor from out of province. We started off with the seafood chowder which was very good. The crepes were excellent and thoroughly enjoyed by both my wife and our visitor. I had the Crab cakes and was a little disappointed. They were quite small and the overall meal would not have been enough had I not had the soup. Coffee was very good and my wife enjoyed her Mimosa. Overall a very good restaurant and we will venture back to try other things.
