The food and drinks were outstanding. Friendly staff!
Great for my first time going! Not sure if the steak was worth the money I paid but the sides, appetizers and drinks were all great. I’ll be back to try out the other items on the menu.
Food was great, everything the table ordered came out hot and delicious. Our server was amazing, she was so helpful and made great recommendations. The building looks small from the outside but is bigger once you come in. The back door dining is really nice and the ambiance is relaxing. They do get busy so highly recommend reserving a table. They get super busy anytime after 6. We arrived at 5 and it was a quieter ambiance.
My only complaint for the restaurant is that they charge you a fee for using your card. I didn't notice until I was home that they charge you the fee before you pay the check and they don't remove it when you pay in cash. Which is odd. It also takes away from the restaurant, it's a bit tasteless to have a charge for paying it gives off convenient store vibes.
To start off on a good note the bourbon cocktails were good. The lamb chop was literally inedible; overcooked oil-soddened breading, grey meat, disgusting. The meatballs were tasty but we're cold in the middle so the cheese stuffing was not melted. The noise was over the top. The table behind us pretty much screamed the whole time, allowing the whole room to share in every word of their banal conversation.
Not recommended unless you are a college student with money to waste.
Everything tasted like the grease trap. This place isn’t what it used to be.
Got a very good sandwich and cocktail. The service and cleanliness was great
We were early for our 10:30am reservation, I opened the door at 10:15am and was asked to wait outside. No one came out to tell us to come in. We were the first table. 3 out of 5 of us are over 50 so the picnic table was not the best place to be seated-I asked for seating with chairs and the girl brought me a chair.
2 orders were placed for the poached eggs. One came out with a big ole hair right on top, the other was about room temp. The haired plate was replaced but was also room temp.
2 sandwiches were ordered and both were basically have a little meat with your giant bread.
The highlights-the bacon was AMAZING and so were the potatoes rendered in some delicious meat fat.
The server was nice enough but when a big hair is on someone's food, you should comp something off the bill. Especially when the tip is included.
I would not return.
they took my favorite item off the menu, the bacon appetizer we got was 80% fat, waiter forgot my wife's drink refill mid meal
Great place to eat ! Great food .. cool atmosphere .. the staff was very friendly. Helium comedy club right around the corner!
For starters - it’s next day lunch time and I still havn’t eaten breakfast because I’m so full!!
Drinks were great, asked our server for recommendations and he had some great options for all of our taste buds!
The service was great, whenever we needed something our server was there.
THE FOOD: was amazing. My group ordered a ton of appetizers and some meals. We started off with the duck wings, cauliflower & Brussels sprouts, and pretzel monkey bread. All three were amazing and I would recommend. Next we ordered the smoked Gouda Mac and cheese, The Italian Meatballs, lamb chops and the Parmesan garlic bread.
This way enough for the three of us to request a bed at the end of the meal. We were so full and so many of our taste buds were delighted. If I had to put our meals in order of greatest to least it would follow this : in my taste buds opinion.
1. Italian Meatballs 20/10
2. Pretzel monkey bread 20/10
3. Smoked Gouda Mac 20/10
4. Cauliflower/Brussels 20/10
5. Duck wings 10/10
6. Parm Garlic bread 10/10
7. Lamb chops 7/10
We will be back for more tastings and to try more things in the menu!
Had a great experience and great food!
Two couples had dinner at Butcher Bar prior to a show at Helium comedy club. Our reservations were for 8:00 and the restaurant was pretty full when we arrived but we were surprised at how much it had emptied out by the time we left about an hour later. The two ladies ordered cocktails, the Westside of Broad and the Peach Blossom, which were very good. One lady also ordered a Butterfly Effect, which she said was good. We ordered several dishes for the table: the sloppy joe poutine, the duck wings, the cauliflower & Brussels sprouts, the grilled octopus, the jerk chicken, and the pork toast. The pork toast was everyone’s favorite. The jerk chicken was a big disappointment. It was sweet and lacked any discernible jerk seasoning. Everything else was very good. We were very disappointed to find out that both the short ribs and the wild boar ribs were sold out. Really surprising considering we were having dinner at 8:00 on a Saturday night. Another big disappointment was the state of the bathrooms. The staff really needs to spot check the bathrooms throughout the night and do a better job keeping them clean and sanitary.
Overall the Butcher Bar was a fun experience being our first time the expectation was high. Unfortunately the food was unwhelming at times, monkey bread served in a pan yet cold and dense to the touch signaling it was old. Mac n cheese in a hot skillet yet the cheese sausce was more room temperature. The ambiance was a blast though, drinks delicious and vibe on par for what you would hope. While I realize they were busy, sometimes pre prepping certain items isnt the way to go if it sacrifices the quality.
Both the food and drinks were great, and the service provided by Arnold was top notch! Will definitely be back
Everything was great
We sat at the patio outside. The waiter was very nice and attentive, and the food was very good.
Great restaurant! Food was fantastic, service was great, and overall a really great environment for a casual dinner.
Love this place!! Food and service outstanding!
Food was really not good. Won’t be going back. Very disappointing.
Great food great atmosphere, can’t go wrong get the duck wings!!!
They gave us the crappy table right at the top of the stairs which was fine. We ordered our drinks and our food and it all came and was fine but then our dirty plates sat in front of us while person after person with empty hands walked by us and I finally had to ask someone to take away our plates. We each then got a 2 oz whiskey pour (mine was $30 btw) and then after we declined dessert, while our drinks were still full, our check got dropped. I know there are table time limits, we had been there for only an hour and had fully planned on ordering more whiskey. I was just like “oh well I guess it’s time to go then?” This is long and overly detailed but the whole experience was really underwhelming and kind of a let down.
It’s just not it. Not feeling it. If you’re from NY or CA, this’ll let you down hard. Your wallet’s getting butchered, for real.
Delicious cocktails. Food is good. Upstairs was a little hot
Best burger, ever. Get the Royale!
The server was good, I just got the vibe that they are not yet running on all cylinders for a busy night. Our cheese came with mold, so that means the cheese plates have been sitting out for some time. They fixed it and gave us a free dessert, so all good, but cheese shouldn’t be sitting out in the air that long. Love this place and a long-tome Customer, and I expect they will be back to 100% soon. I have not sat on the area behind the kitchen, so maybe it has always been this way, but too loud.
Well done food, good prices, excellent drink mixes and attentive service
Will go again
Food was amazing so as the service
Average preparation for most dishes. Smoked Gouda Mac and cheese was well done steaks as well. Rest was average.
Very accommodating of gluten-free needs. Excellent cocktail menu.
The pancakes were ok, a little thick but really good whipped cream and fresh fruit. The BLT with egg for additional $2.00 was tasty.
Food was ok. The mashed potatoes were the best part but the ribs were underwhelming. Sauce was kind of bland and just poured on the ribs after cooking didn’t seem like the ribs were marinated in any sauce which is necessary for full flavor.
Also called ahead to change my res to indoor because it was raining and they told me yes, but upon arrival was seated outside.
I would definitely come back. We were bummed that they ran out of mashed potatoes and carrot cake but we really enjoyed the duck wings and jerk hen. Cornbread is good also.
All was good, except for the octopus which tasted like Sea Isle Beach Water. Plus it was loud as hell and we had a reservation but no table was ready upon arrival. The servers were nice, Rigatoni and the wings were great. Would go back, but will not be getting the octopus.
Food was absolutely amazing, everything was great. We were kind of left for a while and we ended up waiting a while for our waitress. It seemed she forgot about us a few times and the place wasn’t crowded at all.
We loved our dinner experience! Food was great and the service was excellent. Even the background music was great. All around really fabulous!
Good go to for meats and whiskey. Great build out and friendly, efficient service.
Visited with family from out of town. Great atmosphere and service. We had appetizers and cocktails, all of which were very good, but the house made beef jerky was amazing!! Will definitely be back.
My husband and I have been here a few times in the past couple of years, and this time like the others, did not disappoint! With great service compared with outstanding food, we loved coming here last night.
we got a plethora of appetizers and shared one entree; all of the food was delicious. the only thing I wasn't a fan of was the butcher's punch, that didn't taste good to me at all. my favorite item we got was the Korean short ribs!
Food and service both great!!
We will be going back soon!
