This restaurant has the best meat selection you could imagine. Of course the steaks are superb, but there are also delicious sausages made in house and a selection of seafood. We’ve been several times, and EVERYTHING is good!! Perfect for date night.

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.
