My wife and I decided to try The Butcher Shop after I purchased a discount gift certificate online for the restaurant. We decided to go on a Saturday night around 7:30 pm. I assumed that this would be a busy time, so I went to their website and did an online reservation. When we got to the restaurant we opened the doors and there were a total of 3 other tables. We were greeted by someone who was obviously not a host or hostess. They were wearing chef pants and a t-shirts. Also, I have read other reviews where people said they displayed all their meats in a windowed cooler as you walk by, apparently not anymore. The cooler was completely empty. After being seated by a cook, we ordered a glass of wine and then placed our orders. We ordered the 8 oz Filet Mignon priced at $30.00. The waiter then brought us some unimpressive bread and then our salads with wilted lettuce. A few minutes later he brought us our entrees. I was immediately over taken by an awful smell. I thought at first it was the twice baked potato (which was horrible) but it was actually the steaks. It appears they put a lot of garlic powder on their steaks.
We were very disappointed in this place. They were charging Ruths Chris prices for Golden Corral steaks. The atmosphere was also lacking. The place looked like it should be upscale but they were playing XM radio. So as we sat there we got to listen to "sunny" music and commercials. Something else we noticed on the way out was our waiter and the bartender both standing in the corner eating dinner.
I am not sure what happened to this place. From reading other reviews, it looks like new owners took over this place and it is slowly going downhill. I suggest they contact Gordon Ramsay and his Kitchen Nightmares show. That is what this place reminded me of.
Pick and grill our own!. As you first arrive, the aromas from their charcoal grill will greet you, you get to pick out your own selection of steaks and chops through their meat display case. They have huge bakers and great desserts. I loved that you can cook your own steak. If you are a tourist you can wear jeans or a suit, it?s a full mix. Everything was fresh and tasty! Great service too. I give this a two thumbs up :)
Steak the way you like it!. What an amazing concept! I didn?t know there was such a place until I walked into this great steakhouse the other day! You can pick out your steak and grill it yourself if you want!! I love that . My Husband thinks he is the only one that can cook a steak, so now I get to go out and he gets his steak exactly the way he likes it but better! Better because they have Mesquite wood that we cook our selection on and all of the sides we can imagine ala carte. I am sure the kids can appreciate not being forced to look at a veggie on their plate if you choose not to order one . I personally saved room for dessert. Hands down one of the best times we have had as a family in a long time. Go now and see for yourself!!! Fun fun fun , and yum yumm yummm!.
