Butcher Boys have been around for about 25 years, they are veterans of the steakhouse business, their service is top class and the food is hard to beat, went there twice in 6 days and enjoyed it immensely.

Business dinner at this restaurant. First time I've been here. Excellent service. Waiters well rehearsed in steaks and their ageing days. Lovely vibe and spotless. Pricey but worth the cost for steak cooked to perfection. Bev Moore

She offered of her own to change it, and I received a second - this... More

I have been to this restaurant several times, but unfortunately food was a big disappointment this time. The filet of game was not tender and very tough. I do hope they will improve. Service is good.

Wow!! We were blown away by the excellent quality of food and we had great service too. We treated ourselves and my mom for her 70th birthday. It was our favourite experience in the week we spent in Umhlanga! If you can only have one excellent meal while holidaying in Umhlanga, Butcher Boys is the place to have it!
