Butcher Shop Steakhouse - San Diego
Great find for ambience and foodCame back again to check this spot out after a pleasant first experience to find an even greater second time here! Ordered the 8 oz. sirloin and it came as ordered; meaning medium rare, with juice, flavor, and right off the grill. It wasn't a fluke. Good food, great service with a smile (thank you, Melanie). Nice wine list, good prices, well worth the visit. Try it! (and lots of other things to order if you aren't a beef eater)6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingThe online reservation was quick & easy. I was seated right away and the service upon arrival was excellent! The meal & server were excellent as well. I highly recommend it.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprisingly reasonable spotStopped for dinner on a Sunday evening and was able to take advantage of their early dinner specials which are a find in themselves. Prime rib was excellent, chicken marsala was tender and tasty, the wine menu was decent and extensive. Our server was on the spot and even our bus-boy was pleasant and 'johnny on the spot' for clearing and water, coffee, etc. all with a smile. No complaints here! And I will be back!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service!Reasonable prices for steak or fish.
Waitress was excellent as always.
We were too stuffed for desert.
We will go back again.
M. Lowell5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSame as it's always been...I hope this place never changes. Moderate prices and a good value, considering the current cost of dining out in San Diego. If you want a traditional style steakhouse and love prime rib, look no further, this is it! I've been going for years and will return again.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMService was wonderfulI am had an enjoyful date with a long time friend. I requested a table w/out much thoroughfare as I recently had foot surgery and the host was extremely accommodating and even wished me well. Prime rib bites were cooked medium well--I prefer medium-rare, but very tasty. Our main meal were a prime rib and beef medallion. Food was very good. The service was outstanding. Our waitress had suggestions for appetizers and entrees, as well as cocktails and wine. Her suggestions were very appreciated. She was such a delight the entire time. Afterwards, my date and I enjoyed the company of the bartender. Great first time dining there but certainly not our last!!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food and excellentVery good food and excellent service. It is not Donovans for prime cuts but you get salad and sides with your meal for a very good price. Love the old school steakhouse vibe and a $7.50 corkage fee was a pleasant surprise5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favoritesWe often choose The Butcher Shop for our night out and in the mood for a delicious meal

It is a traditional steakhouse. Perfect for a date with that special someone.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA restaurant that is worth a drive!This was our 2nd visit to the Butcher Shop which indicates total satisfaction with our dining experience. We drove in from Palm Desert(2 1/2 hrs. each way) that also adds to how important it was to dine at the restaurant. The food from start to finish is very fresh, tasty and presented most attractively. Service is impeccable including the bus boys. To top all this off, are very modest prices for the quality. We will be b-a-a-ck!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service. MyGreat food and service. My wife like her steak well done and often it is a problem, not at the Butcher Shop. All the steaks were perfectly cooked from rare to well done.

Steaks are always consistently good.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is one of my family'sThis is one of my family's favorite restaurants. Food is consistently good as is the service. The parking situation can be rough, they reserve way too much of their ample parking lot for valet service (80% of it at times!) and it. If you insist, you can self park.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWaitress was excellent, topWaitress was excellent, top notch customer service!
