This was on my wish list of places to dine. Fabulous food. Enormous portions. It’s a great spot to share entrees and sides. Wait Staff was excellent. Service was wonderful! Expensive. But for a splurge it was great!

We knew we couldn't get a sit-down reservation, so snuck in and sat at the bar with the view to grabbing a cocktail and small bite and then going on to our reservation. That changed within 20 minutes. OK - so there really are no...More

The bourbon list and craft cocktails are comprehensive and thoughtful. The sausage sampler contains three very different items - all very good. The Charcuterie platter was outstanding! The spicy Brussels Sprouts and smoked carrots were also delicious. The staff is helpful and attentive. I will...More

Butcher & the Boar opened in 2012 in Minneapolis, MN, with a simple idea. Create a festive and communal dining experience with American craft food, beer and bourbon. We are a steak and smoked meats house. We believe that top notch ingredients sourced from local farms and premium purveyors and prepared with superior culinary technique is the secret to great food.
