My Wife and I. Went on a date,one Sunday evening and we had a great dinner. Our food was excellent and overall.The employees was so courtesy,food was excellent,waiter he was so excellent,Well from entrance to be seated, we had excellent service. So, if they be open, on December 25,2015. We will spend our time together again. At the BUTCHER SHOP.WONDERFUL EXCELLENT PEOPLE, COZY ATMOSPHERE. LOVE THE PEOPLE WITH EXCELLENT SERVICE. RATE 100%+++++++.
My wife and I attended a retirement dinner here and the place was a zero or less actually. I will mention the very little good before the bad. The serving staff was courteous and prompt. The food was subpar. Salads were bagged and the added items... cucumber and tomato were limp and not fresh. The steak was pedestrian and tolerable at best. Very little seasoning and definitely not hand cut as you would expect for the price. But, to add insult to injury I ordered two bottles of wine. One for my wife and I and one for the honoree and her husband. I was charged a mandatory 18% gratuity even though it was only two bottles of wine and I was not the responsible party for the event check. The general manager advised me that was their policy and that's that. Perhaps, that's that is how you should regard this place. It is definitively off my list of any place that I would choose to dine, recommend or spend my hard earned money. It is on top of the list of places to AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE!!!!!!!

I not only had wonderful food, but a great waitstaff as well. As a matter of fact I enjoyed it so well I had our last Patriots Day Gala there, and will have it again there in 2008.
As the National Chairman for the Defenders of Freedom , I tell everyone about the Butcher Shop.

I think it's funny to read the above review about undercooked steaks and having to sweeten your own tea---I just picture one of those customers that orders well-done rubber steaks, and if it doesn't look like someone threw their steak out in the street and backed over it with a car...it's undercooked. And every fine dining restaurant I've ever been to....well, you always have to sweeten your own tea. This is the Butcher Shop after all...not Burger King. Get the large filet, it's like 4 bucks more for almost double the meat, and you can take home what you don't eat...order it medium rare and get the twiced baked potato. Also, the spinach artichoke dip is FABULOUS..........yum. Awesome food at a fair price. We loved our server too.

While Butcher Shop is not my absolute FAVORITE place to get a steak (that would be Ruth's Chris followed closely by Folks Folly) - it *is* a great place to eat. The steak is wonderful, but what I really like are the cheesy potatoes. It's like gluttony heaven in a dish!
It's a little hot right now, but the patio is really pretty and the Cosmopolitans are good too. Give the Butcher Shop a try!!!

We recently moved to Memphis from Chicago and we do not expect the resturant scene to compete with Chicago - seems many people like to compare Memphis with large cities across the nation - the Butcher Shop was a pleasant surprise and we had a very nice dinner. The service was excellent, the seating was comfortable (booth) and the atmosphere was typical of a restaurant known mostly for their steaks - not quiet but not overbearing.
My wife enjoyed the salmon and I had a filet. Both were prepared according to our instructions and both were very tasty. The filet had a very good flavor, not overcooked and it was very tender. The salmon was grilled to my wifes specs - and she can be very demanding with her fish! The side dishes were excellent - we had various veggies - and were not over-cooked to tough, as sometimes can be the case.
We enjoyed our experience there and will go back. We would likely take out-of-town guests who are steak fans. It would be a very good steak without breaking the bank!
