Description: Butcher & the Boar opened in 2012 in Minneapolis, MN, with a simple idea. Create a festive and communal dining experience with American craft food, beer and bourbon. We are a steak and smoked meats house. We believe that top notch ingredients sourced from local farms and premium purveyors and prepared with superior culinary technique is the secret to great food.

Excellent service, delicious food! But, heads up--the beet salad is one of those hilariously tiny things where you look at it and wonder why they forgot to put food on your plate. A few slices of beets for $14--not worth it at alllll. Everything else ordered was tasty and reasonably sized--spicy brussels sprouts, fried green tomatoes (very delicious), broccolini, mac and cheese, bone marrow.

The butcher and the boar is a truly outstanding restaurant. Their specialty is meat, specifically sausages made in house. My wife and I dined at the bar on a busy Friday night. We ordered the sausage sampler to split as our main meal. We also had the caramelized broccolini, truffled mushrooms, and corn bread. Everything was expertly prepared and delicious. The waitstaff also made sure my wife’s gluten free needs were taken care of. For cocktails, they are known for their bourbon selection. I believe they have about 150 of them! I tried their old fashion and it was very good.

Food, service, ambience, and professionalism. This restaurant checks all the options. You won’t be disappointed.

We had reservations for a table, but there was a short wait and we decided to eat at the bar. We had very good service, lively conversation with our neighbors, and a very tasty over-sized meal portion...we ordered the beef rib. ENORMOUS. We thought we would have a light crab salad 'described light by the bartender', but there was plenty of mayo in the salad...wouldn't order that as an accompaniment again. We had a great time. Our other bartender was very helpful and amenable to trying out wines before choosing.

We had a beautiful meal here. Huge foodies and we travel for the food!

The service is exemplary and our server and busser were great. Making wonderful and satisfying suggestions. We had th steak tartare, croquettes, the beef rib and brussel sprouts. We felt like we got all the hits of the menu and were able to get a feel for the joint. The chef knows what he’s doing and has a staff who loves food as much as he does and is able to put out the food in a timely and consistent manner.

Go! It’s worth it and you won’t be sorry!

This is a great (small) steakhouse but with a lot of good food and choices you don’t get other places. Everything made at the house.

You have a direct view to the chiefs preparing your food over fire.

Full house so don’t expect to have a quiet dinner.

Enjoy and have fun.
