Stopped for some wings and a beer. Wings were meaty and big......beer selection is great. We recommend sharing your table if you see someone looking to sit like they do in a German beer hall! Great time,

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.
