As always wonderful dinner wonderful service such a nice place to go to great value for the money
Food not as good as we've enjoyed in past. Maybe kitchen has changed since ownership change. Service was bad.
I’ve gone several times before, but this time I do have to say I wasn’t impressed. First my dad didn’t get his wine until his dinner arrived (server said the bar was busy, really) and it was his birthday! Then another server brings out the food puts it right next to us, but doesn’t distribute them? I guess we had to wait for OUR server to give it to us? I am glad we left after dessert because seated parallel to us was a table of 6 drunk customers I could see eventually getting loud and obnoxious!
Without a doubt, The Butcher Shop serves the best prime rib in town. And prime rib is offered among many other things at their bounteous Thanksgiving buffet -- including lamb, turkey, ham, and salmon. Gravies are excellent and their rustic bread stuffing is remarkable for all of its textures and taste. My mother preferred her own fabulous cooking to most restaurants but I could have brought her here, Nuf said.
We ate dinner here on Thanksgiving. They have a very nice buffet, which we enjoyed.
The Butcher Shop consistently has the best Thanksgiving and Christmas buffets in town. The food is amazing.
Food was amazing. Was there for Thanksgiving and they had a special buffet for the holiday. There were so many choices and they were all delicious. Service was very friendly, too! Overall, a great experience!
This was their Thanksgiving buffet. The food was excellent. We went about noon and the selection of items was quite extensive. The food was warm and fresh. We were given a table in front of the fireplace which was nice. I asked to have my roll heated and the server brought us two warmed rolls. Initially, my husband declined his complimentary glass of champagne, but later a gentleman stopped at our table to inquire how everything was and my husband asked for the complimentary glass of champagne. The man returned with a glass that turned out to be Martinelli's sparkling apple cider. Mistake? When our server was made aware of this she apologized and brought the glass of champagne. Thanksgiving at the Butcher shop has been a tradition for us and we will be returning.
As always, we had a great time and superb food. Will always recommend the Butcher Shop
Superb meal. Outstanding. Can’t wait to go again. Our steaks were perfect. Best steaks and prices.
Awesome experience! Thanks for making our evening special while we celebrated!
Based on online reviews, I expected much better. This is not a high end steakhouse.
Everything about tonight was perfect the food was amazing the service was great
The BUTCHER SHOP is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is great and reasonably priced. The ambiance is classic and the staff is very friendly.
Great restaurant. Seated promptly. Waitress was very good, attentive. Brought out two birthday desserts for the two people with a birthday. Food was excellent.
I've been told to try the Butcher Shop for years, and it did not disappoint. This was a b'day dinner for my husband and we secured the table right in front of the fireplace. The food was outstanding - I can't say that I've ever had steak so perfectly prepared and melt in your mouth. The service was a bit off, but not terribly so. If you need a place for that special dining experience, this is the place!
The service was outstanding in the food was very good
desert Items ordered were forgotten, server did provided a free dessert to go, They no longer accept the passport card, Food quality is always terrific
Outstanding! Never disappointed. Steaks perfect.
We were ver disappointed that the Butcher Shop stopped taking the Passport dining card. I am a Realtor and give the Passport dining card as closing gifts. I had many clients come to this restaurant because of the card.
We had a large party and the bill was inexpensive due to no card usage. Food and service were very good🍷👍
Had great prime rib with garlic potatoes. Service was excellent, all arrived on time and was tasty.
Food had no taste. Waiter was nice and friendly. Price for the food would of been fair is the food was good.
The Butcher Shop is full of old-world charm, with a somewhat dated decor. We dined there on a fairly slow night, so it was quiet, which was very nice and easy to have a conversation. Service is always very good, and this time was no exception.
My one observation, which isn’t truly a complaint, is that I ordered halibut. It was the only fish on the menu other than salmon. What came out was swordfish. It was good, I like swordfish, but the menu said halibut, so that was what I was expecting.
Otherwise, the other three family members with me really enjoyed their meals, and the evening was delightful.
Not their best night, lots of diners, waited for reserved table because of prior guests seated in booth. Food excellent, service very good, I'm spoiled and so expect excellent service. They did a great recovery and still got me out in time for the theater. No real complaints. always love their beef! Cooked exactly right every time.
Lovely evening just wish they could do something with the seating it’s always like you’re right on top of each other
Meat quality is very poor for a steakhouse. Very disappointed!
Love the black and red booths of traditional steak houses and the lighting is soft, pleasing but still enough to read the menu. We had a quiet spot until they put a noisy group right next to us when there were other places they could have put them away from a table of 3. Fish and Prime rib, delicious, but veggies bland, boreing, no seasoning. Garlic toast tough and lacked freshness. Cheese cake lacked flavor. Presentation seemed uninspired. Been coming here for years but remember it was better.
So disappointed that I got no points for this reservation.
My wife chose the salad and didn't care for the dressing. I had the onion soup which I thought was very good. The noise level, unfortunately, was too high where we were sitting. I had to lean over to talk with my wife in a loud voice. My wife enjoyed her steak and the halibut that I had needed extra "tropical" sauce but I thought that it was OK. We will come back again at a later date.
Really nice birthday celebration with great food and service. Many thanks.
Thank you very much for allowing us to serve you- Happy Birthday once again!
I love prime rib in this restaurant served a delicious juicy big slab of it
Our server did a very good job of assisting/supporting our (three-person birthday) party of eight.The food was tasty and portions were large—lots of leftovers for lunch the next day.
Went during restaurant week. Loved the special menu. Delicious food!!!
It was a very busy night and all my food was cold. I had Prime Rib with a baked potatoe. I honestly believe the waitress may have taken a well deserved break and our food set awhile. They were very very busy due to outside activities the night we were there. I look forward to going back on a normal night and trying again. They have a great menu.
It was very nice. Food was great.
The ambiance was great, but the food and service could have been better. We were seated almost right away, however, it took about 20 minutes to get our dinner and drink orders in. We wanted to give the restaurant the benefit of the doubt since it was restaurant week, but we couldn't get past the wait times from start to finish. we also noticed that the food was not completely fresh when it came out. The lobster tasted as if it had been sitting out for a while, and the creme brulee did not have the signature crunch on the top layer. Sad to say: we were disappointed.
The meat was too lean and lacked the flavor. Asked for medium rare but was closer to medium.
My friend and I came for restaurant week. Coming here is always a treat. We both had the sirloin steak with the bleu cheese on top. It was so delicious! In fact, everything was so tasty!!
The steakhouse of my East Coast childhood. Careful service. Perfectly cooled steaks. Traditional sides, a solid Caeser salad and Indulgent desserts.
It was my first time here (during restaurant week) and I loved the old world charm of the dining room. Our server was wonderful and kept checking back with us and the portions were large! Will be back!
