Our experience at The Butchery was fantastic! Our waitress was knowledgeable, helpful, and an absolute delight. She was able to accommodate our needs to deliver us exactly what we were asking for time and time again. This was our first time to visit the restaurant and we now understand why it's an Arvada staple. We'll most definitely be visiting again (mostly for the complimentary skillet cornbread and the creme bruleé!).

Took my wife here for her birthday. Due to covid and having a toddler at home we rarely get to eat out anymore. This place was perfect for a date night. I read a few reviews before we went that said the food was good but not worth the price. I have to respectfully disagree. Keep in mind we did not drink but we also did not hold back and our bill was right at $100 which I think is more than reasonable for a higher end establishment. We sat outside and it was great they had about 15-20 heaters we had the patio to ourselves which was an added bonus. Manager did a table touch in the middle of dinner and brought out my wife's dessert himself and comped it because it was her bday. A+ from me!

This was our first time at the Butchery. The service was attentive and the food was very good. I did have to send a bison steak back (just a tad under-done) but that was handled very professionally. Overall a nice experience.

Really great experience outside of the insanely expensive steakhouses downtown. The variety of steaks was small, but the tenderloin and bison ribeye were perfectly cooked. The cocktails and dessert were tasty and service was very quick but not high pressure at all.

French Onion soup not real hot, flavor was good. Loved the apricot martini! My steak was ok (blue cheese “crusted”). Not the most tender filet. My husband’s chicken with truffled honey was amazing! They brought a free lava cake for my birthday, but no lava in it.

We were celebrating our daughters birthday which we told our waitress twice and she must have forgotten because she never brought a dessert or anything for her. The table right next door did get something with a candle so not sure why we didn’t.
Service was a bit slow but we understand during these times that’s to be expected.
Food was all very good except baked potatoes were not hot. Steaks were exceptional.
Thanks!

My medium-rare steak was perfectly prepared, tender and delicious. My date's scallops were large and delicious (her description). The side dishes were wonderful, and the receptionist and our waiter were very friendly, fun and welcoming. Consequently a great evening, and we'll be back.

Quality of the fillet that I ordered right next to the best. Scallops special was tragically over seasoned and not cooked very well. Honestly, the highlight of the night was the Brochette appetizer and the free green chili cornbread. Good bourbon selection though. Nice to see Blanton's available somewhere!!

Mixed drinks were fantastic, exceeded expectations. Appetizers were also extraordinary. Main course was good but didn’t exceed expectations, red meat was cooked properly for each person of our party which can always be a challenge. Overall, service was great and would return again for drinks and appetizers again in the future.

1st timer! Absolutely delicious from the Green Chile corn bread, French Onion soup, Filet Mignon, Bison NY Strip to the juicy asparagus and brussel sprouts. Careful - you probably wont have room for dessert because you will wipe your plate clean! Service and safety were exceptional! We will return very soon!

Great happy hour and steaks. We had a strange overcharge on our bill which was quickly resolved but the circumstances surrounding the incident were a little odd. This is not the first time it has happened. What if we hadn't noticed?

We came here for our 2nd wedding anniversary. We sat in the bar area and had the best service from Vernon. He was so friendly and made great cocktails. I had the Old Fashioned and my husband had the Manhattan. Great and eclectic drink menu!
The food was top notch as well. They brought out some corn bread to start while I waited for my French Onion Soup and my husband his Wedge Salad. Both were delicious!
Our main courses were also great, I ordered the Alaskan King Crab legs and he ordered the steak trio with three different toppings. We left feeling full and happy!

Hadn't heard of The Butchery until I started Googling a place near me for a good steak. We were celebrating a birthday and they made it special. We had the filet, the ribeye and the lobster. It's not cheap, but the food was fantastic and the service excellent. I had no idea there was a place this good in Arvada. Can't wait to go back!

We have had brunch at the Butchery twice now, and everything we have had has been fantastic. Our recent waitress was attentive and sweet. She forgot my husbands orange juice and when he asked she quickly apologized and brought it out right away. The cinnamon rolls are amazing, but the homemade biscuits steal the show. We will be back!
