There are several things that we enjoy at Butch's Dry Dock. The food is always at a high standard. Their wines and cocktail selection is great. The service is great and very attentive. The management is customer friendly and attentive. On this occasion My wife wanted their to die for Mussels and they were out of them. Both the server and the management were apologetic and went out of their way to satisfy her. We ended up with complimentary deserts which was a great jester but not necessary. We will be back soon.

Bruce, the “som”, graciously greeted us and led us to our window table with “happy birthday” written on the paper top. As always, Bruce made a perfect wine suggestion. Food was well prepared and good.

Once a frequent patron - Haven’t been in almost two years... with all the new options, don’t think we’ll be back. Menu is too limited and pricey for just a “good” experience. Cocktails overpriced and not that well crafted. Server was fun and attentive.

Not sure how it is decided if you get seated in the casual area or the white table cloth area. We thought we were reserved for the front but got seated in the back. We did have a reservation. No big deal but are the two places named differently?

I took my girlfriend there for her birthday and it was a good experience overall. Despite having a couple of my friends not recommend it due to some personal and professional differences, it was a very good date night. I made a reservation and got a good table and they even wrote Happy Birthday on the paper on top of the table cloth. Desert was also on the house for her, which was certainly an added bonus and it was a treat. I ate the house burger on a pretzel bun which was fantastic. It was juicy and succulent, and it had just a pinch of salt on the bun underneath that really enhanced the flavor. My girlfriend ordered the short rib, which while pricey, was delicious. All and all, without paying for desert, or alcohol, I paid about 50$ for a great dining experience. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good time in a fancy place, however it's not very kid friendly just because of how upscale it is.

If looking for a more romantic setting, ask for seating on the 8th street side of the restaurant.

The mussels and the duck confit were delicious and I would have given it a 5 star on food, however the dessert...Black Forest cake was dire, the worst I have ever been served. The cake was dried out, and the icing was awful...perhaps too much time in a freezer? Too bad because it is the ending your remember best.

I was disappointed in the option of vegetarian dishes. Literally my only option was soup and a salad. Which were both amazing but it would have been nice to have at least two vegetarian entrees on the dinner menu.

Our waitress was VERY attentive without being overbearing. I was thankful that they took reservations on the weekend.

Our server indicated there was a problem in the kitchen delaying our food and brought us complimentary soup while we waited. My leftover were thrown out by mistake and the waitress had a brand new salad boxes for me to go. Which I would have never in a million years expected.

While window seating provided a bit more distance from the other tables - it was chilly- but still great ambiance and motion to the environment without it. Ring overbearing.

The food was beautifully presented and I appreciated knowing the vegetables were grown locally.

First (and will not be last!) time at this delightful restaurant. Staff was very friendly, from the hostesses to our waiter (sorry, I do not remember names). Answered our various questions about the menu - we had the two soups, burger, and a delicious salad with apples. We were celebrating my Mother's Birthday and such a treat when our waiter offered her a dessert - she had the madelines, which were baked and presented warm - absolutely fantastic!!
Thank you for the wonderful evening dining experience!!

Butch's is our go to spot every time we're in Holland. There are always interesting things on the menu and the wide ranging wine selections are reasonably priced. We find the service to consistently be knowledgeable and professional. It's a great place to celebrate or just enjoy one another's company!

Our special occasion was my parent's anniversary. We had an energetic waiter that was attentive, but had little knowledge of the wine's served from their wine list. Food was well prepared and dinners were accompanied by a house salad. The ambiance of Butch's Dry Dock was quiet and comfortable. We would consider Butch's again when dining in Holland Michigan.

Went there for my Anniversary and it was great. We had the scallops and filet and both were cooked perfectly. The walk up coolers with beer and wine to select from and take to your table was an unexpected surprise and added to the already great experience.
