Overall Rating


Had a wonderful experience at Butcher and the Bear tonight. Our server was very knowledge about allergies and super helpful walking me through the menu. While nothing is labeled on the menu, many of the dishes are gluten free, and some can be modified. We ordered: Brick chicken (highly recommend) Wagyu Beef Cheek Pasta (modified with GF fusilli) Ribeye Gigante Beans and Kale (highly recommend) Mashed Potatoes (very creamy/buttery) Grilled Asparagus

Everything was excellent. We will definitely be adding this restaurant to our rotation for date night and when friends are visiting.
