The menu was probably simplified versus normal times. But, we enjoyed our dishes and the staff was very friendly!
We had a fantastic dining experience. We had a seat right by the window and the atmosphere was amazing. Our waitress was extremely attentive and we enjoyed every single bite of our food. We absolutely highly recommend Butch's!
Very nice dinner for my Wife's Birthday. The service was great, but the food could have been a little bit warmer. We will give them another try in the future.
Always a great meal! Super waitstaff too! We’ll be back.
You can not have a bad experence here. The quality of food is excellent. The choices of both food and cocktails are great. The value is good. The service is outstanding.
We love the atmosphere at this restaurant. It was perfect for our friends who are visiting from out of town. The food is excellent. Last year when we came for a birthday celebration we had an excellent server. This year the server was mediocre And not nearly as personable.
The scallops were great. The sancerre was lovely. However, the pricing is a bit high.
Overall, it was a good experience.
Service was excellent and the food was great as well, our waitress was lovely and took great care of us (I forgot her name :(....) a lovely restaurant!
Great service and very.pleasant experience at the restaurant
Many menu choices and each with the chef's touch to make the meal an amazing treat.
Made reservation for tenth anniversary on October 15th for a 5:30PM dinner on the 17th.
Upon arrival the hostess informed us we would be sitting in the bar area. This was unacceptable and very unlike any service we have had previously. No offer to accommodate or reschedule was made. While I can understand restrictions due to COVID-19, I can not understand why the reservation was handled the way it was. I sent and email to the owner explaining our situation, but have yet to get a return email. Very sad, as we have always enjoyed the service, food, and hospitality before. We won't be returning any time soon.
We were pleasantly surprised! Our food was delicious and the ambiance was very great. Not stuffy at all
Awesome dinner! Great atmosphere, food and service.
Our server was great! Waitress offered a nicer bottle of wine than we originally said and it was GREAT! Very nice evening!
We both had sea food dishes which having recently spent years on the east coast, we are sometime reluctant to to eat in the midwest. Both were great dishes.
Another excellent meal on the books at Butch's. Always try to stop when in the area and haven't been disappointed yet. Limited choices this time due to Covid phenomenon but still wonderful. Be back again when in the area.
Ambience was excellent, beautiful establishment. Host staff was FANTASTIC. From there, the service went downhill. I don’t believe the person waiting on our table was waitstaff, she appeared to be filling in to cover our table. We ordered steak frites and the seafood pasta and were stunned by the almost minuscule protein serving sizes, though the food itself was decently tasty. My husband was never brought a steak knife, despite asking and the server passing our table 6-7 times. With some good competition in the area, we would not visit here again.
Nice dinner. Everything was adequate. Did not blow me away.
We travel from Chicago to dine at Butch's. The quality of the food and the complexity of the tastes are above average. Friendly and helpful wait staff.
Filet and Salmon dinners were perfectly delicious.
Very relaxing and dimly lit,but not to the point where you cannot read the menu. Quality of food was awesome. Sooooo nice to be able to talk over music or loud voices. Server, Maryanne, was a pleasure to speak with. Our appetizers were very good. The temp of food was excellent. It was our 42nd Anniversary and the raspberry sorbet with bubbly was a very nice ending to our meal. We will definitely be back! Thank you!❤️
Spent a long weekend in Holland for our 5th Anniversary and chose Butch's Dry Dock for our Anniversary Dinner. And we could not have been happier with the choice. First I had ordered a combination Anniversary present and trip souvenir from a Delft shop in Holland to go on our table. I picked it up Saturday during the day and dropped it off at the restaurant. When we were seated at our table later that evening on their patio my wife was delighted with the surprise, and now the explanation why I disappeared a couple of times during the day.
Lindsey our server was absolutely delightful having greeted us with annivererry wishes. She was attentive without giving us that rush that some servers seem to be in to turn the table.
And the food. My wife had the Seafood Fettuccine and I had the Braised Short Rib. Both were wonderful. The Fettuccine was well stocked with seafood and the short rib was butter-knife tender and had a wonderful cheery chutney along with green beans and potatoes.
Their wine list is good and the entrees have recommendations with them and I opted for the Chianti Classico recommendation and it went very will with the beef and sweetness of the cherry chutney.
To top off the evening the restaurant provided a desert on the house in celebration. we chose the fresh baked Madeleines with a dark chocolate ganacha that was by itself hard to resist using a finger to finish of when the Madeleines were gone.
If you are in Holland you owe it to yourself to give Butch's Dry Dock a visit.
Great wines ... high quality food ... outstanding server!
For the price of the entrees, we expected better quality. We ordered the scallops and seafood fettuccine and both were disappointing. Appetizers were good tho.
Was offered assistance at the selection of wine for varying tastes and that was successful, followed by a wonderful dinner. Helpful, friendly informative staff as well.
Glad to be back at a favorite venue. The food and drinks were as good as ever. We felt well spaced out so no issues with socially distancing.
Love their wine list and food options. The staff adhered to COVID 19 safety guidelines. There was both indoor and outdoor seating options. Would definitely eat there again.
Good for a special occasion. Portion size a little small and the per glass price of wine a little steep. That aside, everything tasted good. Nice ambiance. Very friendly and accommodating staff.
This is our "go to" restaurant whenever we are in the area. Pleasant staff combines with a quality product that we wish were located in our home town.
Our server, Maryann, was amazing. Professional and very personable.
Best location! Best menu! Best wine list! The Best!
Best filet I've ever had. Split with my sister and they made her a special risotto without mushrooms. The wine was also delish. Highly recommend.
We were contacted before our visit & given 3 choices of seating. When we chose the main dining room, we were told they could seat us there 45 minutes past our reservation time. They said we could sit at the back bar at our reservation time. We took that. We arrived on time & were seated right away. We were given water & waited 15 minutes before a drink order was taken. It took another 15 minutes to get drinks. Appetizer was ok. Salad so-so. Scallops ok. Filet migon overcooked & I sent it back. 2nd time it was delicious, but still not medium rare. Risotto overcooked & mushy. Bottom line, we won’t go back. We were not valued as customers...really taken advantage of. We’d wanted to come here for a long time & had admired the white table seating. There are many other restaurants in Holland where we will spend our money. And yes, we had dressed up to celebrate a special occasion. DISAPPOINTED!!
Food was fantastic but the service was very slow.
Butch's Drydock is now our favorite restaurant. Food and experience is always great. Our server Erika did an outstanding job. Food would have been 5 stars but the special I had was porkp porchetta, that is supposed to be pork loin wrapped in pork belly, but they just served pork Rolaude. That's pork loin rolled.
We came in for a family dinner while on vacation. We were sat in back by the noisy kitchen and bar. We asked to move upfront and they were very accommodating - the table was far better, with linen service. The drinks were good and while the service was very slow, our waitress was kind.
We got the curried scallops and the fettuccine Alfredo. There were 3 scallops per plate with a small side of rice. The scallops were cold. What was most offensive was the alfredo. It was bland cream and noodles, with no flavor at all. I cannot believe how much they charged for the quality and portion size. Maybe they’re taking advantage of a touristy area? I can’t believe that they get away with food that tastes like that.
We complained and they gave us a discount on our food, but even then, it wasn’t worth nearly as much as we paid.
Bottom line: I shouldn’t have trusted a menu that had Mexican, curry and pasta. There are so many incredible restaurants in the area to choose from - do not waste your money here.
Great salad and steak and fries !!!!
Very good job of social distancing the tables . Very comfortable.
Great food and service.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Our go to place for a nice dinner with good food in Holland MI
