We frequent Butch's on special occasions, anniversary, birthday, Valentines Day, etc. My husband and I both love the atmosphere and food. This time, I found my entree to be a little different than I have experienced in the past, although the broccoli was ok, I did not care for the smoked flavor (doesn't mean it was bad). The risotto had no flavor, it was very bland. My steak was cooked perfectly. My salad was overpowered by the dressing and not as good as I remembered. The dessert, however was delicious. While I did not say anything while we were at the restaurant, I may consider these things when ordering next time. Of course we will be back. My husband loved his dinner.
Very good service. Food is always consistently good with nice ambience
Butch's menu offers some spectacular dishes! Particularly recommend the mushroom crepe and the chicken coq au vin -- you will believe you've been transported to France! Selection of wines cannot be beat!
We had a reservation and the table was prepared and ready for us when we got there. We were promptly greeted and welcomed. We ordered our food and the presentation was amazing. It tasted incredible! The wine pairings were spot on!
Butchs' has always been our "go to" for an outstanding meal. This time was a big disappointment. The food was something I could get at a pub; nothing special. We will try again, hoping for an better experience.
It has been a long time since we have been to Butch's for dinner. It was delightful and we really look forward to going back soon. Terrific beverages, cozy atmosphere and amazing food. We know we can get a great lunch and happy hour treats, as well.
Very small portions and extremely high prices. Solid service and atmosphere, but not a great value.
We were greeted upon arrival with a great welcome and smile. It was our anniversary and we thought is was pretty special that both the server, and wait staff took the time to know that and congratulated us! The food was very good but wished the portion sizes were a bit more for the price- other then that, it was a all around great experience!
Diver’s scallops with a cannellni bean ragout was outstanding. My son enjoyed the lamb loin special which was also delicious. The starter and salads were also excellent.
A special meal for a special day!!!!!!
I made reservations here at least 2 weeks out and when we arrived we were seated at a table basically in the doorway to the kitchen. Horrible spot to put a table! When you are spending over 200.00 per table for dinner you shouldn't put a table 1 foot away from the kitchen area, what felt like a hallway (it was also the hallway to the bathrooms) I had the scallops which had zero flavor and my husband had the salmon which also had zero flavor. The food was okay, but rather overpriced we all thought. It was a nice place if you weren't sitting in the spot that we were put in. For having reservations that far in advance, they should put you at a nice spot. I was looking at the beer/wine coolers and doorway with people walking by to the restroom the whole time. Left not happy.
This has been a favorite restaurant since they opened years ago. Remember to ask for a window table when you make a reservation or someone else will get to sit there.
Great dinner! Delicious, I would definitely recommend.
Great Food, awesome service, and great ambiance:)
We were in the area from Illinois celebrating our tenth wedding anniversary. Butch’s was recommended to us to have our anniversary dinner. We got there early and the bar was too crowded so we had to sit in the hallway while they prepared our table. Once we were seated our waiter was not very knowledgeable nor attentive. I heard the waiter at the table next to us ask if they were celebrating anything. Our waiter did not ask this even though I included our anniversary with our reservation. He left plates on the table as we moved into the next course. Rarely checked in and brought us the check without asking if we wanted anything else. He did end up at the very end saying I know you are celebrating your anniversary so feel free to pick out a dessert. However it felt like an afterthought. I was disappointed. The food was not at the quality I would have expected either. Maybe it’s a good place for an average night out.
Service and food are excellent. Butch's Dry Dock pays great attention to detail to take the dining experience to a high level. Butch's has earned my vote as Holland's best restaurant.
GREAT AS ALWAYS. NEVER BEEN DISAPOINTED THATS WHY WE KEEP ON GOING BACK ONCE OR TWICE A MONTH.
Excellent place to dine and enjoy a meal without feeling rushed.
got stuck in the bar where it's quite noisy but other than that, another great meal!
When in Holland, MI we always try to dine at Butch's. Everything was excellent as usual except the service. Restaurant was crowded and there seemed to be a shortage of servers. Usually the service is excellent, but for this time seemed very uneven. We will on our next trip to Holland, dine again at Butch's.
It was our first time to Butch's and we went on a recommendation from a couple who had lived in Holland. We went in early to check out the restaurant. We were greeted by the sommelier, Bruce who was very friendly and helpful. We got talking about our anniversary dinner and that we wanted a good wine. Bruce was so helpful. He helped pick some options for our dinner. When we returned, they had set up a table by the window and had written "Happy Anniversary" on it. The server was amazing. She was so nice and helpful. The food and the wine was just as amazing. A perfect evening provided by the team at the restaurant. Thanks
unique wine area to purchase a great bottle of wine and just pay corkage fee...great service!
The "special" salads/smaller portions were fantastic. Delicious and innovative. My main course was just ok. The wine list is extensive and fabulous with plenty of affordable bottles available. Our waiter was perfect. I enjoyed the experience overall and would just try something different for my main course next time. We were there late (maybe even the last ones there!) and we never felt rushed.
Butch's was great as always. We eat their at least twice a month. Their new menu is great. A lot of choices.
I hadn’t been to downtown Holland since I left for college over 15 years ago. I was pleasantly surprised with this gem. The food, decor and ambiance were great. So glad we decided on this place.
The fish special they had was amazing and the duck was fantastic.
I took my girlfriend for her Birthday, we were very pleased...
Varied menu with interesting options. Reasonable choice of wines and a professional wait staff.
Style is worthy of a city restaurant.
We love Butch’s...excellent food...great atmosphere...friendly service...good value
Food was very good! Really enjoyed the cheese curds!!
The filet was delicious, and the service was outstanding. We were initially seated at a table looking into the server's station. I asked the hostess twice to be moved to different tables that were available, and was told those tables had been reserved. Our server later offered to move us to one of the tables I requested. That was very nice of him because the table was not in his section.
Had a friend from NY visiting me and spent time in Holland. We both agreed that Butch’s was perfect and lovely in every aspect. .... the Hostess ... Wait staff.....Food ... Cocktails....Ambience was just wonderful. Thank you for a great evening👍
Love this place
Great for a weeknight or special occasion
Casual pub or dining room, same menu available in both
Always a great meal ambiance and service - we are so fortunate to have this place in our neck of the woods
Our dishes included fresh, local foods. We had a caprese salad. My husband had the Caesar salad with anchovies where they added $2.50 for the anchovies which we thought was very odd considering Caesar salads generally include these without additional cost. He had the scallops and gave them the thumbs up. I had the chicken satay that included ample servings of thick chicken strips covered with light curry seasoning. Overall our meals were delicious, the service was good and the atmosphere was nice (ask for the front window tables - if possible).
Great Lakes whitefish was overcooked. Wine was great. Service was fine. Noise level medium. With a better entree it could have been much better
Butch’s has become our “go to” for special occasions and date nights. It’s aamzing service combined with delicious food makes this place a gem!
Nice night out. Food was very good. Service was more spotty than you would expect from a restaurant this good. Server was helpful and knowledgeable but a bit absent. Would recommend.
Usually good food especially if you are a small eater. This time the food was below average, staff overstretched, cold food, very expensive as always.
This is one birthday my husband will not soon forget! This was our first time at Butch's but I can guarantee it will not be our last. From the moment we stepped inside the restaurant until our goodbye was said, our experience was memorable! Erica was very attentive and we especially enjoyed discussing wine with Bruce. Our dinners were well prepared and delicious. We can hardly wait to get back to Butch's.
We ordered the filet and scallop dishes. The risotto with the filet was well undercooked and the scallops had no sear whatsoever. The filet was great however. If the items were reasonably priced it would have been acceptable but at their price points you expect much better than this.
