Birch + Butcher

Contemporary Midwestern Cuisine

At Birch + Butcher, we sear, roast, grill + smoke in Milwaukee’s only open-fire hearth.  Using both primitive + modern cooking styles with vegetables, fish + meat true to the Midwest, we create dishes that are nostalgically comfortable + inspiring.

Local. Regional.
Extraordinary.

Dinner is casual + shareable. Begin with a spread of cheese, charcuterie + fresh baked bread. Seasonal side dishes complement main dishes + platters.  Our beers are local, the wine list is completely domestic, + our cocktails are extraordinary.

The best we have to offer comes from not-so-far-away.

The Butcher Shop

Open daily at 7:30 am!  Happily serving Dark Matter Coffee from Chicago, Underground Meats from Madison plus other treats from our baker, local farmers, creameries, + breweries near Milwaukee.  Meet friends or colleagues for breakfast or lunch + stay a while.

Casual counter service starting at 7:30am daily.

Reviews

“Delicious food! Exceptional service - friendly and fast. The atmosphere is very clean and modern. We had the NY Strip Steak, BBQ Parsnips, Sunflower Seed Risotto, and a honey ice cream dessert! The butcher shop was cute too! We brought home some delicious Canadian Bacon! We will definitely be back!”

“Delicious food that is easy to share. The aromas in the restaurant are amazing, especially if you sit near the hearth!”

“I have been lucky enough to attend both a private event and dinner service at Birch + Butcher so far. I have been beyond impressed with the atmosphere, the food and the drink. The interior is sleek and modern, while the details are homey and thoughtful. Every item I’ve had has been both full of interesting flavors and familiar enough to offer comfort. I loved that many items came in portions to share - dinner with a group of 4 was an opportunity to try a dozen food and drink items.”
