Butchers Block
Cuisines: Steakhouse
Restaurant details
Reviewed 21 November 2011

While the decor is great, and they seem to have all the elements for success they don't seem to be able to pull them together.

Pros:
Decor
They have plenty of beef in the glass cooler (makes me wonder how much is sold and how much is fresh?)

Cons:
Dark & Gloomy
Atmosphere (its was empty both times I visited)
Service was so, so
No beers on tap

I saw my dinner sides hang out in the warmer for over 5 minutes before my stake came out.
Stake was a bit bitter...

While it is a small city and there's not a lot of options, you can find the same meal at a cheaper price with a better atmosphere. Seems like they would have no competition.
