Butcher & the Boar Ratings and Reviews
Went for a date on a Monday night and would highly recommend. A little spendy, but you definitely get what you pay for here. After talking with the waiter we had the peanut butter jalapenos for a starter and Long Rib with a side of cornbread for the main course.
If you're reading this review than you probably have already seen from others that the Long Rib is the real deal. Very tender, nice bark from the smoker, and the tabasco molasses glaze was vibrant, but not overwhelming. Definitely the highlight. Not that the other dishes weren't good as well but this place is known for the meat and delivers on those expectations.
We were so full we couldn't order dessert, but were having such a good time that we had another beer from their extensive tap list. Already recommended it to a friend looking for an anniversary dinner spot.
The food and service were great! Everything was served very promptly.
The main problem I had was our table. It was horrible. We were seated next to the door. Everyone waiting to be seated was gathered there and there was overflow from the bar literally on top of us. It was so uncomfortable.
The table service was excellent. Our waiter was fabulous. Your hosts at the front door need an attitude adjustment however. They are rude, unfriendly and arrogant. I ordered the Heirloom Salad and the tomatoes were ice cold. You would charge $14 for a salad with heirloom tomatoes and then serve them cold from the refrigerator - what are you thinking? This ruined the salad.
My second visit... .and we’ll be back. Outstanding food, fast and attentive service, solid recommendations by our waiter. Probably a bit tough for vegetarians... but that’s not why one would go to a place called Butcher and the Boar. Wild Boar and Pork/Cheddar sausages were wonderful. Loved the brussel sprouts to share (which I really didn’t share).
We had an 8 pm reservation but waited at least 10 minutes to be seated. Our table for 2 was pretty tightly squished in between two others. The food was great, and the service good once they got to us; a bit slow in greeting us and getting our drinks order. The noise level was extremely loud where we were sitting, near the bar area. Not great for any kind of table conversation, but the food made the experience worth it.
The food at Butcher and the Boar is great. Very meat-heavy menu, smoky foods and smoky scent to the place. However, the service was so-so. There were about six customers waiting outside in the freezing cold for the restaurant to open at 5:00 p.m, most probably there before a show. The wait staff ignored us, though we could see them through the window hanging out at the hostess stand. They would not even invite us in to wait in the lobby. Finally they opened, not a minute before 5:00, and allowed us to wait indoors for our tables. We told our server that we had to be at a show by a certain time, but it took a full 50 minutes before we got our food. Then we had to eat really fast and rush, which took away a lot of the pleasure of the meal. Wonderful food - duck, prime rib, salmon, all recommended, but DON'T go and expect to be served promptly.
Came here for my birthday and once again we left completely satisfied with our meal! We had the Wood fire oysters, wedge salad, prime rib cap, crab legs and chocolate torte. Everything was really good, steak was cooked perfectly and the crab legs were huge - the mango salsa on the crab was a nice addition. Basically everything we've ever ordered here has been delicious...
The beef rib was excellent. Sausage platter ok. My wife favors chicken and fish, of which chooses were limited. Large portions and high prices. A good place to take the football team after a full practice. Presentation could use a fair amount of work for the price.
We decided we would not need to return.
