“Oh my goodness do not miss it”
Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Top notch steakhouse that is priced as you would expect it to be. Don't miss the stuffed hash browns or the baked Alaska. My NY strip was prepared perfectly at medium rare and seasoned appropriately. Love it love it!

My large family and I recently celebrated the graduation of our eldest son from Drexel University in Philadelphia, PA and we wanted to celebrate this momentous occasion with a special dinner. We choose Butcher and Singer as our venue and we couldn't have been happier with our experience.

The restaurant is a beautiful old bank building with stunning decor. There are high ceilings and marble floors, tall columns and beautiful lighting throughout with wonderful music from the 30's playing quietly in the background. The food was amazing from the mouth watering escargot, perfectly prepared steaks and stuffed hash browns (which are a must) to the amazing Baked Alaska. My daughter had the twin lobster tails that were the best I've ever tasted and the mashed potatoes were to die for! I really can't say enough about the food! It was all just amazing. I have to give a shout out too to our waiter, Tom! He made our night one of the most memorable we've ever had. He was fun and witty yet the epitome of a professional waiter. From the minute we sat down he made us feel at ease and welcome and he explained, in depth, everything on the menu and how it would be or could be prepared. Fabulous!

It was a wonderful way to celebrate our son's graduation and we are just so thankful that we chose Butcher and Singer. It's a dinner we will talk about for a very long time.

“Definition of a steakhouse!”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

Wonderful meal with excellent service. Shared 1/2 dozen fresh oysters, the wedge salad, filet and lobster tail, and stuffed hash browns (OMG). Expect pricing similar to Mortons or Capital Grille, but an authentic 1940's steak house feel. Wonderful...

“Great old school steak house”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

We were seated promptly and the restaurant was packed. Gorgeous room with high ceilings, wood panels and a cool mural. Used to be a financial institution and has a really " power" feel. Steaks were great quality and beautifully prepared. The has bron side stuffed with aug gratin potatoes in sour cream was noteworthy. Escargots were fantastic as was tuna sashimi with tzatziki sauce. Great service.
