We go here with our Frenchies and sit on the patio and have a great meal and great drinks a couple of times a month. They are very dog friendly on the patio and even have dogie bowls. All of the meats are excellent to eat. The Buffalo Brussels Sprouts are a surprise. Not a fan of Brussels Sprouts but... More

While this place was hyped, I was delighted the food, service and atmosphere of the place all surpassed expectations. This place is all about meat - we tried a few dishes and they were all excellent. The service was prompt and not-intrusive. On a cold night, the dim, warmly-lit interiors were relaxing and inviting. We opened with whisky and worked... More

Menu is smaller than similar restaurants in downtown Minneapolis, but food was spectacular! Waiter, Sam, was awesome and took the time to explain our options and the specials.

Great atmosphere. Fun, noisy, and very vibrant. Server (Brian) was top notch. Very knowledgeable. Great recommendations. And the food was great too. The surf and turf was perfectly prepared and the Brussels sprouts were the best I've had. Will definitely be back again!

Reservations must be made, however, we'll worth the wait. The long rib is to die for. The New York Strip with spicy green beans is awesome but not quite as good as the melt in your mouth long rib. Huge drink selection. Great service. Super friendly staff. A must have on your list if you like meat!

House made sausages and great wood fired steaks are just a couple of the reasons I gave this restaurant a high review. The bourbon and whiskey selection is too notch! My only drawback is the noise level. The tables are big like in a butcher shop but it's tough to talk on a busy night as the restaurAnt is loud.... More

The experience of eating at Butcher and the Boar is something that cannot easily be explained in a sentence but a grouping of sayings: open kitchen, classic bar area, woodsy-throwback mood lighting and MEAT, lots of meat. If any of those phrases caught your attention, this place is for you. After having a lovely dinner with some close friends before... More

We had another outstanding meal at Butcher and Boar last week. We thoroughly enjoyed two wild boar sausages for an appetizer. The long rib and pork chop were absolutely delicious. The service was excellent. If you want unforgettable meats, this is the place!
