    Overall it was quite lovely - our server forgot to tell us the specials but we overheard them explained to another table so knew what the options were. She was lovely though and gave us good space between courses which is important to us. Food was delicious and ambience was very relaxing and enjoyed the night out for our anniversary.

    We just had a really good experience. The short rib special and filet were well prepared. Erin, who was taking care of us, made the whole experience come together for a nice snowy night out.

    Everyone was very warm and welcoming from the host to the bartender to the GM to the server and to the owner. We had a lovely table in the front that was conducive to having a conversation (a little quieter than the bar). Our dinner and dessert was very good as well.

    Very nice space in downtown Holland. Food consistently good, not always great. Seating at initial table for 2 was adjacent to a building hallway window. Hallway had an annoying ceiling light that illuminated us and our table. We asked for different table and it was provided. Butch's could solve this with a curtain as they have with a lot of other hallway windows next to seating areas. This was not how I wished to start my wife's birthday dinner. My wife had the salmon entre and said it was "ok". I tried the vegetarian entre cauliflower steak. Mine was quite nicely seasoned and tasty but maybe a bit long on the grill. We split a cheesecake for desert and it was great. Butch's remains on our go-to list along with some opportunity for improvement.

    Our New Years Eve dinner was not a great experience. Service was quite slow, but may not have been the servers fault. She said the bar was backed up. However, everything was slow to arrive, not only the cocktails. There were empty tables nearby, so it didn’t seem like they were slammed. But the Hanger Steak was tough and the whole dish cold. I had to hunt for the potatoes in the chorizo potato hash. Shrimp and crab bisque was not at all interesting. Our dinner companion, when asked how his Shrimp Spaghetti dish was, replied “all right”. Considering the prices of entrees, we would have expected really delicious meals. This evening was not what I would have expected.

    Server (Erin?) was awesome. Super cool and upscale location. Appetizers 👍🏻 but the main course was underwhelming. We had the Filet and the Berkshire Pork Porterhouse. Both were just so so. The dessert was phenomenal. Bananas Foster Bread Pudding. Excellent wine, Whiskey and Bourbon selection. 4 out 5 stars overall.

    Terrible service from Karrie K. Spent over $400 on dinner and she could barely spend 5 seconds at our table. When Karrie came to our table, I was either talking to the back of her head or catching her 6 feet away, because she'd turn and leave before I had an opportunity to address her with our needs and questions. She could not even bring an ice bucket to our table for the $95 bottle of champagne, even after Butch said she would. Butch was very helpful selecting our champagne. Appetizers were very good. The seafood chowder was excellent, but the entrees were served cold because the timing in the kitchen was messed up (due to the chowder having to be made). I specifically asked Karrie to make sure the entrees were served properly since the soup course was delayed. They fired the entrees too early, and they sat in the window getting cold. Very disappointing.

    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!

    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!!
