Butterjoint is a comfy bar and restaurant located in North Oakland. Our welcoming and eclectic atmosphere is appropriate for almost any occasion - whether it be meeting a friend for a drink, celebrating an important event, or relaxing after work.

Our menu is a mixture of familiar Pittsburgh foods (think pierogies, hamburgers, French fries) and French bistro classics (beef tartare, raclette, mussels), and seasonal classics that come and go throughout the year. We put care into our vegetarian dishes too, including making our own tempeh, falafel, and veggie patties from scratch. Menu items change frequently--usually every day--and reflect many long-standing relationships we have with farms and breweries in our region.

In addition to reservations, we also have a thirty seat bar that is first come, first serve. We don’t know exactly how old the bar is, but it’s at least seventy years old (probably older) and very cozy. Our friendly bartenders are here to make something you like.

    We had a great time - it was a slower Monday night. Our server was fantastic and very helpful with the menu. We had pierogis, sauerkraut balls, lumps, French onion soup, crostini, chocolate cake, cheesecake, and rhubarb pie. The only one we didn’t love was the crostini, but even that was kinda tasty. Definitely recommend

    We 5 went there because my husband has enjoyed it at lunch. I need to eat gluten free, however. He can eat everything. Options are limited for me: a salad or a sandwich with their gluten free bun. The GF bun was not good. (Houlihan's has a wonderful GF bun. Taste theirs.) Their bun is too dense, too big, not toasted. The chicken was not juicy. The French fries were good but their serving size is huge and not good for anyone to eat them all. The falafels were ok. Two people had the mussels and not their favorite recipe for them. They said they were ok. One person ordered a salad which was fine, but not anything to rave about. Dessert for me was just a vanilla ice cream as they had no real gluten free dessert options. It was too noisy to be able to hear our friends properly. I do not recommend this place.

    I went in a party of four for Mother's Day brunch, and everything couldn't have been better. The food and drinks were delicious, and the service was attentive without being bothersome. We will definitely be back.

    An interesting variety of cuisine. The chicken sandwich was one of the best I've eaten—so tender and flavorful. The muscles were also delicious, and my wife loved the salmon. We felt very well cared for.
