We were in town for a business meeting. Wanted to check out the restaurant that was within walking distance of where we were staying. Very rude staff from the moment we walked in. Not a fun experience.

When you walk in the door you are greeted with a boars head so wasn’t sure what to expect. Once inside a wide open eating area that looks into the kitchen. Very nice atmosphere! We started the evening with a drink from the bar and...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.
