The tattooed waiter was excellent, knew his stuff and his Steak on the bone recommendations did not disappoint. The ambiance, service and the food lived up to expectations. Great stuff.

Busy every night of the week, it's best to book ahead. Easy to see why it's so popular: great location, excellent service, spectacular steak and good value (especially on the Wednesday Date Night package deal that we were on). Highly recommended.

We ended up here n a Friday night without booking in advance. The very friendly waiters arranged a spot for us at the bar and the service was excellent and the food even better.

We had dinner at Butcher Boys on the first evening of our vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Have to complement our waiter Jarrot (Jarrot with a J like in carrot). He is a real asset. Steak was perfectly prepared.
