We had an overall great experience! The food was delicious, the service was fantastic up until the end. The server couldn’t split checks between 8 and it was such a mess.

Food was excellent but they tried to seat us outside and it was 24 degrees. We originally said yes but then they left us sitting out there without lighting the heaters and no one greeted us. Then an employee say down at the table next to us and started smoking. They did finally seat us inside.

Another amazing dining experience! Staff interested, knowledgable and friendly, paid attention to our seating request and accommodated it. Ambiance modern with a Southern slant, warm, bright and welcoming... and of course, utterly delectable food and wine offerings.

I went here with a group of friends and we had the best time! We knew going into it that it was going to be smaller portions, but we assumed that we would have the option to have a more traditional meal. That being said, we enjoyed getting to try different things and enjoy some wonderful cocktails!

Great food, but sitting outside would have been much nicer if they had the fly issue better under control. Too nice a restaurant to be constantly waving your hand over you plate to keep the flies away.

Always amazing. The outdoor seating arrangement on the grass is so quaint and perfect. I felt like I was at a quiet private dinner. Weather was perfect. But B&B never disappoints. 5 Stars.

Love this place. Dropped my daughter off at college and got to stay over and enjoy this spot. Food is amazing. Must try the whipped goat cheese. We ate outside on the back patio and it was a charming and different experience than eating inside. We had the mushroom pappardelle which was fabulous. I highly recommend this place.

We love Butcher and the Bee, but this is our first time back after COVID and I’m not sure what happened with your menu. We were disappointed at the lack of selection and even some of our old favorites (liked the whipped feta and hummus) were not up to expectations. The service was neglectful and bordered on rude.

look online at the menu before you go...
They have a full bar but the server told us they prefer if you order from the cocktail menu....strange.

Butcher and Bee is an amazing food place! The turnip pasta is glorious! Lunch is much quieter than dinner. The service was excellent, timely, attentive, but not on the heavy side. Excellent option!

Have had dinner here in the past and really enjoyed it. They seemed off their game for Sunday Brunch. Had reservation for standard seating. Had to wait 10 minutes after checking in and then we were put at the bar. Dirks took several minutes to arrive. Server was courteous but spread thin among other diners that were at tables not at the bar. We ordered two appetizers to share. We got one right away. Then our entrees were delivered and we had to ask for the second appetizer which came about 1/2 way through the entree. No apology or acknowledgment from the server that had happened. Food was really good, but the service was less than.
