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...More

I took a group of customers to this restaurant during a conference in Minneapolis. The atmosphere was fun, albeit a little loud at times. The food was tremendous! Portions were enormous and the appetizers were to die for. Great services as well. The whole experience...More

We were excited to finally experience Butcher & The Boar and were not disappointed. We had steak filet, scallops, sausage and a delicious cornbread. The filet was prepared perfectly and the scallops were definitely the best I have ever had in MN. It would be...More

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.
