For 17 years we have dined at Butler Inn over a dozens of times and the steaks are always constantly delicious especially paired with their shredded onion rings. Great salads and great service makes this a family favorite.

Ok, let's start at the beginning. Reservations for two. Seated promptly at a TINY table for two while larger tables for four sat empty ALL NIGHT. Pet peave. THEN our watered down cocktails came (very disappointing, who does the bartender think he's kidding?). Our waitress was friendly but did push for the order. My wife's tenderloin was satisfying for her.... More

Louie's Signature Steak is the best filet you will ever taste, served with soup or salad, potato (get the hash browns) and haystack onion rings. Brandy Alexanders are a must have (share). Professional waitstaff and very attentive.

Was one of the best places in town to get a great meal with great service. Staff has seemed to turn over. Kitchen is slow and wait staff is inexperienced. Can still get a decent meal if your patient and don't minding asking for your waiter/waitress several times.

Seven of us were there for dinner last Friday night. It took 1 1/2 hours to get our food. We had 2 young kids with us and they were starving and falling asleep by the time dinner finally arrived at 8pm. We started with apps of onion rings and calamari. All was limp and grease logged. We couldn't tell if... More

This place is going downhill!!! Our last 3 time have gone bad. We left without eating the last time. The service is not up to par. When you spend the amount of money for dinner, you expect to have a good meal, great service and an enjoyable time. This hasn't happened. The food is good but not anything else.
