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!!!!!!!

GreatFun Place to eat with friends – I used to go here back in the early 90's when I was stationed in Millington - great time and best steaks! How could they not be - you got to cook them yourself!
Went here again in the early 2000's and it was just as good as before - if you love steak like I do and you love making sure it is done just right - this is the place to go if you are anywhere near Memphis and Beale Street.
Sucker punched. – As an unsuspecting traveler visiting Memphis for a week on business, I decided I would celebrate the passing of mid-week and dine at a "quality" steakhouse. I narrowed my search down to two: Butcher Shop or Majestic Grille. I gambled.. and I lost. I expressed to the waiter that I was having trouble deciding between the rib-eye and the New York strip. He recommended rib-eye. Right on buddy.. If you like your steak 60-70% fat then this is the place for you. After I finished the meal he saw my plate and the war zone created by my attempts to find a legitimate piece of meat and had the audacity to comment that "maybe I should choose the New York strip next time." Next time? Yea.. probably not. If you are in Memphis and looking for a good steak please dine anywhere except the Butcher Shop.
Not my favorite, but still very very good!! – Butcher Shop is one of those places that my mind doesnt automatically jump to when we're heading out for a steak. Usually its between Ruths Chris and Folks Folly (and Ruths Chris usually wins - they have better sides) But sometimes we're burnt out on RC and sometimes we just dont want to drive that far. Thats when the Butcher Shop usually pops into my head. The steaks are good...I have never prepared my own. Like some others have said - whats the point in that?!?! The spinach artichoke dip is, in my opinion, the best in the city. Even better than Houstons. Yup. The potatoes....the ones served with cheese in a gratin dish? Oh. My. Goodness. They are *so* good....skip the baked potato and try them! We go to the one on G-Town Pkwy and they have patio seating. Also another draw when the weather is nice and you want to sit outside!
Big Disappointment – Arrived and was quickly seated. Ordered beer and soft drink. Informed by surly manager that one grill was down and that no customer steak preparation on the other grill was possible. Left.
Did not meet the expectations – The staff is friendly and they sit you promply but the food is not that great. they give you a choice to cook your own steak or have it cook by the chef (cooking my steak, is't that why I went out to eat in the fist place, because I did not want to cook) neadless to say we had the food cook by the chef and it was tastesless. I do not recomend this place.
Great deal for the $$$ – My gf and I could have eaten the spin dip and cajun shrimp alone and been happy, but our filets were too good to ignore. This place has Folk's and R. Chris beat hands down. It's just a good, basic steakhouse without fuss or formality. They also don't charge extra for 'loaded' baked potatoes like some other places in town. Our waiter was excellent and we never had to ask for a thing - he also didn't bug us either.
The Best Ever! – I have visited Memphis three times, and eaten at both locations. Each time, I've ordered the 14 oz. Filet, eaten every delicious bite, and have yet to pick up a steak knife. It's that tender! I've had far less quality steaks elsewhere for far more money. Nobody serves a 14 oz. filet, and those that come close charge a whole lot more! Two weeks ago, I visited the Dallas location, and the steak was just as awesome. Worth the trip from anywhere in the country!
Best Steak of my life! – I am not a meat eater and I the chef prepared the steak to perfection!!! Highly recommended
