    We were greeted and seated at a very nice, cozy table for 2. Several people, including the owner, stopped by our table to make sure we had everything we needed. Our waitress, Maryann, was excellent and very attentive. All the food we ordered was prepared to our liking, nicely seasoned and delicious! A lovely evening celebration!

    The food was good, but a little overpriced. The cocktails were just okay. It seems like we had wait a bit too long to get our drinks, but the rest of the meal went well after the drinks arrived.

    Wonderful service and great food! The cauliflower appetizer and the beets app were amazing! Had the filet and it was cooked perfectly. My sister had the salmon which was seared nicely and not over cooked. Great choice of wines! A wonderful evening!

    Beautiful fine dining, delicious selections for everyone. We really appreciated the music, relaxing and classy. Window seat is best, trees lit up outside, people walking by. Reservations online were appreciated. The service, a bit sketchy as we waited for salt shakers, coffee, bread. It would be nice to know why or if it was coming. But we highly recommend Butch's!

    We had a lovely meal at Butch's. We had a terrific seat by the window looking out at the street during a holiday shopping event - very festive! Wine and cocktail selection is modest but there was good variety and a range of prices and quality. We were in a steak mood so ordered the filet and the hanger steak - both cooked perfectly to order and delicious. The truffle cauliflower appetizer was out of this world! We had to wait maybe 10 mins for our table and the manager gave us a glass of champaign to enjoy while we waited. We had an old gift certificate that they honored with no hassles. Overall a terrific date night - we highly recommend Butch's!!

    We were pleased to be seated near the front windows, revisiting a table where we had enjoyed other meals. Lindsey was a gracious server and offered descriptive suggestions for wine and dinner entrees. Butch’s Dry Dock is solid in terms of fine dining ambiance, classic meal presentation and wine offerings. The dessert menu falls short with only crème brûlée and ice cream, along with a few drinks. Regardless, the Loch Duart Salmon and Spicy Shrimp special were prepared perfectly, salads were fresh & tasty and the conservative chatter from surrounding tables made it entertaining.

    The meal was fair and the service was about the same. Felt more like we were imposing rather than guests. I have dined here a few times and had much better prior experiences. Perhaps it was just an "off night" for the staff. The manager however, made it a point to thank us for coming in as he always does!

    Metal tables, no table cloths, very noisy, the dining experience was not pleasant at all! Even I made the dinner reservation ahead of time through the Open Table, we were still got seated at a metal table in the noisy bar area at the back side of the restaurant. The ambiance was very bad, the metal tables look cheap and there are many glass ring marks on the table. Can’t believe I spent over $220 on my dinner to dine at a metal table… I hope in the future when we are trying to make a reservation again, it can specify if the table we are getting is in the nice classic front dining area or it’s at the back in the noisy cheap metal table bar area. In that case, even if the the nice front dining area is all booked up, it will be our own choice to choose if we still want to make a dinner reservation to dine at a metal table in the back bar area or if we maybe would like to choose another restaurant instead. We’ve come to the Butch’s many times over the years, we were always got seated in the front side dining area, I love the front dining area. The ambiance in the front side is very nice and classy, white table cloths with nice table settings, it’s quiet and with perfect lighting, I absolutely love it. That’s also why I got so disappointed and irritated today when we were seated at a cheap metal table in the noisy back side. The menu is the same for the nice classy front dining area and the cheap noisy back side bar area. The price of the food and wines would be totally fine and reasonable if we were seating in the nice front dining area. I would totally love to pay the higher prices for my food and drinks if I’m dining in a nice restaurant that has a nice ambiance, but we were not, we were seated at a metal table in the noisy bar in the back side of the restaurant, I kind of felt like I ordered some upscale gourmet food and a nice bottle of wine to eat at a cheap dinner’s metal table…

    The pork chop was extremely dry and hard to cut. Disappointing because it was recommended. The waitress offered us another and removed the charge for that item on check. Also had filet which was very good! Pasta primavera very good too. Would definitely go back. Customer service was great!! Great waitress! Like the atmosphere

    The full dinning experience is always wonderful at Butch's. We started with the roasted truffle cauliflower for the table. Just enough white truffle oil and great quantity of cheese, then pasta Primavera with white shrimp, vegetables still aldante and shrimp perfectly seared. I had the pork chop thick double cut medium rare, grilled asparagus and a slightly sweet white raisin compote
