Loved the roasted oysters, fantastic. Asked about the duck and was told it was fantastic. Do not order the duck! Please take it off the menu! My goodness that sucks.Had the orange cake and you should order something else. Stick to the beef guys.

My wife and I went here for date night after reading about it for several years. The food was amazing. We had the beef long rib (AKA, "The Flintstone Rib), the crab leg special, with spicy Brussels sprouts and truffled trumpet mushrooms as our sides....More

Very good food, great service and fun atmosphere. A solid 4.5 rating. Our table was near the open kitchen and it was fun to watch the grill chef work. Old Fashion cocktails were delicious. We started with Steak Tartare served with house made flat bread....More

I tried to eat 3 sausages in the form of a sampler but it was way too much food - I recommend the place nonetheless. Great design and the open kitchen plan is also appealing. Service was great and so was food!

I was there with two couples, and we had very good service and excellent meals; the seating was a bit crowded, and the prices were on the high side for what you got; but overall an excellent restaurant and menu

Great place for meat lovers! They make their own sausages and meat is amazing. An outdoor tent space is also fun - overall Fun atmosphere.

This restaurant was recommended by many online resources so we decided to try it out. The food was absolutely amazing, and as expected from the name, very meat focused :) The sausages were delicious and I agree with all the online reviews, the Long Rib...More

A very bisque place to have lunch. Off the bitten path but worth the trip. Would do it again when back in Toronto

Awesome food ( recommend the Brussel spouts) and even better service! I met a friend here for dinner one evening and she forgot I was vegan. The staff was so accommodating in creating a few options on vegan selections for me, I left with to-go...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.
