Usually come for the entrees but this time we had the burger. It was, perhaps, the best burger we’ve ever had. Yum! Chicken sandwich was good too, but not as good.
Loved this place. Great service & staff all wearing masks. The menu changes seasonally so be sure to check it before coming in. There is a variety of great food as well as a burger so there’s something for everyone in your group.
Absolutely a diamond in the ruff.....great experience, service was excellent, food absolutely inspirational.....
The few items I sampled were some of the most visually elegant food I have seen in this part of the world. I had not expected cuisine of such high caliber in of all places, Bismarck, North Dakota!
The staff is very friendly and the food is amazing!
We had filet minion and was awesome. Great service!
Excellent! Good service. Food excellent. Simple burger was great. Corn soup was unusual and good
Good overall experience. The food was very good and the service was great. Cocktails don't scrimp on the alcohol. The only thing I could say was a inconvenience is the menu changes regularly based on the season and availability of ingredients so the items on the website don't always reflect what may be currently available. I wouldn't let that stop you from eating here but maybe call ahead if you are dead set on a particular item being available.
Butterhorn is a fantastic addition to the Bismarck dining scene, and one that I and my guests really enjoyed. The ambiance is a warm mix of 'original Bismarck' and contemporary grace. The menu was exciting for both food and wine; the beer list seemed to only list local brews and lagers and we had to ask to see if there were more popular brands, i.e Blue Moon. There is. There is one problem with the bar sitting located in the center of the dining area; the night we were there a few 'lubricated' friends were having a great time and were excessively loud. While it's great to see friends laugh together, that night we had a tough time conversing in our dining booth. I can't imagine what the noise level was at the tables that were closer. Perhaps the glass partition between bar and dining could be raised from 5' to twice that, or classical sound-muffling curtains hung in lieu of the glass. Our enjoyment level increased 5x when these guests left, and we spent the rest of the evening enjoying one another's company and enjoying Butterhorn's beautiful setting and delicious food.
What a nice surprise-we are from Manhattan Beach, Ca and stopped in for dinner tonite (5 of us) as it appeared to be the highest rated restaurant in the state. It did not disappoint, as even if you do not include the best bread we have ever had with dinner, the butterhorns, the restaurant easily deserves it 4.8 out of 5.0 rating. Our server was attentive and on top of it. The food was delicious from the starters, to salad to the entrees. We were so full we had to skip the dessert.
We have been to many fine restaurants in Southern California, and around the country and world and this truly is a gem and highly recommend. 5.0 and I never take the time to right a review.
Outstanding food, atmosphere, and service! Perfect place to celebrate our anniversary!
Lovely night out with my husband!
It makes me a little sad that one of the fanciest places in Bismarck is attended by people in hoodies and sweat pants.
Local culture aside the food is fantastic and the ambient feel of the restaurant is wonderful. It was a little noisy and made quiet conversation with my date difficult.
Overall I was very impressed with the food and service. The butter horn rolls are an absolute must.
Wife liked her dinner, mine wasn’t so good. Slow for the food to be served to the table.
Ceviche, Filet, pasta and chicken oh my! Belly is too full...did I mention the BUTTERHORNS! They just keep giving. And we love love love this place!! Keep inspiring Bismarck! Thank you!
Great food and really cool owners. They got flowers for me to be put on the table. Awesome service.
Best restaurant in North Dakota. Absolutely amazing birthday dinner.
Love love love this place! A kitchen that knows how to cook! Thank you we’ll return often!
The shrimp cocktail was so yummy! Such a wonderful place!
Food exceeded expected!! Pasta with mushrooms great, salads so fresh. Wine selection great and unique to this city
Truly wonderful food, excellently prepared, served beautifully, and good to the last bite. Steak au' poivre is melt in your mouth good, along with the roasted Brussels sprouts and fingerling potatoes that accompany it. The shrimp cocktail is a treat for the eyes and tongue, and the lemon dill sauce that goes with it would make anything taste terrific. The Wedge salad is crisp and fresh and tasty, and my son tells me the cheeseburger is topnotch.
Bismarck is fortunate to have such a restaurant! We will definitely be back.
Amazing, as always! 10/10 would absolutely recommend. Thanks, Chef Steph!
From New York City so was somewhat skeptical about cuisine in North Dakota but Butterhorn was as good as any other place. Food was great and the butterhorns - the rolls and butter were insanely good. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful.
Brought guests here for a business dinner. Service was terrific and food was amazing. We'll be back!
One of Bismarck's best dining venues. The steak au poivre is a culinary masterpiece served with delicious crispy brussel sprouts and fingerling potatoes. Don't skip the butterhorns!!!
This is a real hidden gem in Bismark. It is proof you can not judge a book by its covers nor a retraunt by its sidewalk appearance. The Butterhorn is culinary excellence that will does not disappoint ! I will be back and I’m bring others ..
I thought it would "good" but it was outstanding.!!.. best restaurant meal we have ever had in Bismarck,
I highly recommend if you are looking for a place to dress up and eat a nice meal. The service was great, the food came out quickly, and the food was great! I would have taken butterhorns home in my pocket had my pockets been larger! Will be going back in the foreseeable future.
The bruschetta appetizer was ok. The chicken dish that I had was good. I did not care for the Cavatelli pasta that my husband had, but he liked it. Service was slow. We sat in the basement and the atmosphere was ok.
The service was good, food was good, and the price seemed a bit high for the occasion.
The food was delicious and the staff welcoming and very nice.
Even though the price was high, it was worth it for a true dining experience. Our waitress was well informed and gave great recommendations. I loved the wine pairing option so that I didn't have to guess what wine went with my food. The lobster bisque was the best I've ever had. Would definitely go again for a special occasion and can't wait to try the breakfast buffet.
Great food. Server was less than par. Other staff very attentive. It was very busy, but other servers seem to have their game on assisting my table
Regardless overall experience was good enough that I will be back.
Burger was delicious!
Have never been disappointed. The food is great, service is wonderful, and it has a charming ambiance.
Enjoyed it very much! The butterhorns are delicious!!!!!
Always absolutely incredible. An experience in itself!
Easily the best restaurant in Bismarck. I went to high school with the chef, and I hope this place thrives for many years to come.
5 star all the way from service, ambiance and delicious food! I told my husband he has to bring me here at least once a week! One of the BEST meals I’ve EVER had.....started out with mouth watering WARM butterhorns....had the steak au poivre with charred brussel sprouts and fingerling potatoes. Even my cocktail (aperol spritz) was perfect. I give the highest recommendation to anyone looking for a special place to eat! I can’t wait to go back!!
We had an Excellent New Years Eve dinner. We are adventurous diners and it didn’t disappoint. Thanks for a great way to make a New Years Eve special!
