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.
The service was excellent and the food was very good. Butch’s is a good restaurant for a special occasion.
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.
Excellent service and food!
Always great food and drinks, relaxed atmosphere, we tend to spend our anniversary here but need to come here more often.
Really enjoyed the ambiance and the food. Great selection of wine. Service was outstanding. We really enjoyed Hooche speak easy.
Butch's never disappoints. The service is as outstanding as the food and we always make the trip here for special occasions.
Butch's Dry Dock is a winner all around! The food is exceptional and creative. The wine is outstanding. The service is friendly and helpful. It is our favorite restaurant in the area!
Excellent all around. Cannot wait to come back.
Visiting from out of town had dinner both nights. Great atmosphere, excellent food, great service. Would highly recommend.
My birthday was wonderfully celebrated with a delicious meal and wonderful ambiance.
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?
Food was very good. Things were pretty quiet, so our server was pretty relaxed about attending to us, which was fine because we weren't in a rush.
Delicious food, wine, and excellent service!!! We loved it!
Perfect Pasta Night!! Best way to spend a Wednesday night in Holland.
Delicious! Small menu but had a little of everything. Had a quaint table for two. Relaxed dining experience.
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.
Special Holiday Dinner
Undercooked steak. A burger with missing items. Mediocre dessert. Average service. I wouldn't expect much more from any Holland, MI, restaurant.
Butch’s is always wonderful. We can always count on good food, great service and ambiance. They have a great wine selection and the bartender knows how to make great cocktails. This is our favorite restaurant in the Holland area.
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.
Great food. Great place.
We had the short ribs and the trout. They both were excellent.
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!!
We always enjoy our meals at Butch's. Very creative menu items, great wine list and very good service.
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!
Great value, good food. Would definitely come back!
Very popular with large groups which makes it a bit chaotic for dinner for two.
Service was unexpectedly good for such a crowd, however, and food was right down the middle.
Service was very slow. Food was good, just took way too long for dinner
A favorite of ours in Holland. Excellent creative menu, elegant but easy-going atmosphere. More formal seating in front; casual "pub"-like seating and outdoor area in back. Never disappoints.
Dustin was our waiter. He was vantastic! He made our anniversary dinner memorable!
Butch's is our favorite stop when in the Holland area. Food, service and especially the wine selection from Italy, Spain etc. are amazing!!
Always a great experience- the food and personal service create a wonderful experience. The owner leads by example for sure .
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.
Very pleasant service; high quality good; nice wine and drink list.
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.
