Probably most well known for their Steak Tartare paired with buttery toast, The Butcher Shop's meat dishes are exceptional. Overall, it is a great place in the neighborhood to stop by for an appetizer, maybe the charcuterie plate , and one of their wines from the extensive drink menu.



  • Best steak tartare in the world.
  • When chef Barbara Lynch opened this South End bote, she proved that slabs of fat-streaked, air-cured meats and stylish Bostonians make an excellent, if unlikely, pairing. Check the stellar wine list.
  • The bartenders here are awesome. Ask for their recommendations on wine and food.
  • The merguez will change your life.
  • Try the Meantime IPA. Brewed in the traditional IPA style, it's hoppy and delicious.
  • get a free coors light with a scotch egg
  • Charcuterie plate is the best in Boston.
  • Great wine list. Very friendly servers. Special duck duet was underwhelming however the proccuito sausage was delicious!
  • Since today (3/14) is Pi Day, this is where you should come to get lard for your pi(e) crusts
  • Special butter! Mmmmm, eat it.
  • If you don't come try this place out on restaurant week - you are crazy! The food is absolutely fabulous (as all barbara lynch ventures), the gastro pub's wine list is superb! Buy prosciutto here too!
  • The antipasti plate includes their amazing mortadella, prosciutto, soppressata, and more. Avoid the overly seasoned steak tartare.
  • Get the Claus Preisinger Zweigelt. Beautiful bottle and great rich body.
  • Sirloin is incredible. Also very solid cheese board.
  • Order the TBS Burger. Its not always on the menu but theyll still make it. Top notch cheeseburger with gruyere, caramelized onions, bacon, and pickles. Plus, its served with a salad, not fries.
  • Really really really tasty meats and cheeses. Cozy atmosphere and friendly staff.
  • Love this place. They serve some of the best selections of charcuterie and wine. Great place for dates and girls night out!
  • Hot dog from heaven!!!!!
  • Excellent meat dishes and cozy atmosphere. Staff was a bit hostile-only bad part about it. Get the ribeye and a charcuterie board!
  • Amazing charcuterie and pate--get enough to share with your table. Dessert was ok, but might consider looking elsewhere in the South End for something sweet.
