“Okay Italian”
Reviewed September 1, 2012 via mobile

The menu isn't very extensive, but the basics they offer are nice enough, if nothing to write home about. Service has been adaquate and I haven't dealt with any disasters descibed in other reviews.

It's not the most charming atmosphere. Restaurant warehouse tables and chairs in a strip mall setting. The wall hangings are a weird mix between muhammed ali and generic sports memorabilia and prints. So this is a sports bar? No, it feels like the owner had stuff he wanted somewhere to hang and show off, but it really doesn't lend itself to a theme for Butch's.

In all, its an ok place to go for a reasonably priced decent Italian meal. It is allso relaxed and empty enough on Sundays to take two young boys along when Mommie is too tired to cook. :-)

A small, off the main path, but a great restaurant to eat.

“OK Italian”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

The food was OK - not great - and was certainly not worth the price for such small portions.

“Great lunch specials”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

Butch's is a fine Italian cafe, especially for lunch.
The salads are very good and the bread is wonderful.
Every day they have a different special during the week.
The lunch specials are usually around 7-8 dollars and are well worth it.
Desert is good but very pricey.
Sits at the end of a strip mall, so isn't the classiest place around.
