    We really enjoyed our dinner at Butterhorn. Greeted and seated promptly for it reservation time. Our server was absolutely fantastic. She was very knowledgeable,attentive and made the whole dining experience very enjoyable. The food was very tasty and well presented. Temp of tenderloin steak was perfect. Kudos to the bartender too. Made us wonderful gin and tonics with The Botanist gin and also had a French 75 with Monkey 47 gin that was top notch. It is not common in smaller cities to have such a deep selection of spirits and competent bar service. We were impressed and will definitely return to Butterhorn when in the area.

    I brought my 16yr old son for brunch, he had the burger and tried everything as is, meaning he didn't opt for ketchup. He loved it! Thought it was the best he'd ever had.

    They crammed 6 adults in one booth. The tenderloin was very fatty and the chicken used in the chicken Marsala was very poor quality

    Very impressive menu. The hollandaise sauce on the eggs Benedict was amazing. Coffee was great. Wonderful place to have a small gathering. Or large gathering if you needed to , nothing like it in Bismarck.

    My first brunch at the Butterhorn was fantastic! I had the eggs Benedict and it was perfectly cooked and the hollandaise sauce was SO good. Our server recommended it and I’m glad she did. We will definitely be back.

    We live out of town, but have had brunch at Butterhorn twice, when visiting family. I was a bit disappointed to see that they no longer offered shrimp and grits, which I had the first time we dined there, but our food was delicious and our cocktails were also wonderful. We'll be back again.

    Butterhorn has always been my choice for fine dining in Bismarck. I have spoken so highly of Butterhorn’s service and food to my girlfriend. Tonight we went to celebrate our dear friend’s birthday who passed away in December. We started with the Butterhorns. Yummy. We shared the Strawberry and Feta salad. Yummy. My friend ordered the beef tenderloin and I had the spaghetti with 2 meatballs. My girlfriend’s potatos & asparagus was so cold, we sent it back. The new asparagus was very woody, she could hardly eat it. In fact, she barely ate any. My friends comment when we left was “I have never paid that much for a meal, that was so bad”. I feel just horrible that I have spoken so highly of Butterhorn, and we were both so disappointed with our meals. It might be awhile before my husband and I return😞

    The service was excellent and the overall vibe is calming and low key. With multiple kids at home it’s a nice change of pace. The burger was ok, but the salmon plate was excellent. We have been here many times and never disappoints!

    For the price point I felt the menu options were underwhelming in creativity. Table was wobbly, drinks were great, service was great, I just felt the menu could have been more adventurous. The rolls did live up to their reputation, but I don't typically visit a restaurant just for the bread course.

    Usually we sit at a table... but this time, we had a booth... the seating cushions were broken... zero support, like sitting in a hole... for the first time, a booth was our meal and I will now request, table..... it was a surprise to find this.
