    Butch's is an upscale gem in downtown Holland. The cocktails, wine selection and food are fabulous. A great place to go for a special occasion or sit in the back for a more relaxed atmosphere.

    Flank steak was mediocre, portion size was pitiful. It came with herb roasted potatoes which was only 5 small wedges. Incredibly overpriced for both quality and portion.

    The ambiance is nice, but unfortunately our meal was nothing special. My steak came out room temperature / cold, and the chicken was just okay - especially for the price. Our service was also quite slow and we were never given the special menu for Valentine's Day, which we would have ordered off of if given the chance. Unfortunately we will probably not return.

    We found it very nice to get our table 30min earlier . The ambiance is not really great with all the cars shining into the restaurant. And it was cold too . Our cocktails were ok . The appetizer good , one was little burnt. Entrees also ok , but nothing outstanding. We had to help ourselves with water , silverware and drinks . I would not really invite my friends to this place , maybe this was the reason to get a table in holland .

    I’ve been to this restaurant twice. I’m never the type to send my food back or complain but my steak that I requested medium was bright red and shiny in the middle, and had a raw texture. My food was also cold. I sent it back to request it to be cooked more. My steak still came back red and shiny. The last time my rice was undercooked and crunchy. I will not be returning.

    This was our second time dinning at Butch's and once it again it was outstanding. The starters, salads and entrees were the best. It is a very relaxing place to dine after spending the day shopping in the great Holland downtown. The cocktails were also very good as was the "select your own" wine system that they have.

    This was one of the worst meals I’ve ever eaten. Broccolini was raw and cold under my walleye. Walleye was overcooked and crusty coating was soggy. Service was great but I will never eat here again due to the poor quality of the food.

    Great food and drinks, as always. Problem was were got out of concert earlier than expected' Arrived 1 hour ahead of our reservations - got there at 5:00PM. Told we could not be seated before our 6:00PM reservation. About 70% of tables were empty. Went into the bar for an hour. At six o'clock we were seated in the bar area (no table cloth, etc....). Many of those tables were vacant the entire hour we waited to be seated in the formal dinning area. No problem with where we were seated....just that they could have seated us at the same table 60 minutes earlier. we were not happy. The very young person at the desk needs more training!!!

    The foie gras with fig marmalade, pickled fennel, and onion-herb mini salad was fantastic (a starter). It was loaded with interesting flavors. Everyone in our party liked their entries, and the presentation was carefully though out. Each plate was beautifully arranged. Also, the service was great, very attentive but not too present. One small criticism, the pour for a $14 glass of wine was what could only be described as less than generous, leaning towards miserly. A nice wine list. The live piano music was not too loud, and provided just the right ambiance.
