What our Customers are Saying...

" We all really enjoyed our event at The Butcher's Block. This was our second event, and we came back because of the experience we had during our first one! The management was amazingly kind to work with, even though we changed our minds on things many times during the planning, they went out of their way to see that we had everything we needed."

"The food was wonderful and we appreciated the service our guests received during their meal. The visuals that supported our speakers looked great on the nice, bright projectors and projection screens that were available. I would highly recommend The Butcher's Block for any kind of event. I hope you have many more great events and a long future there. I'm sure we'll be back! "  
Marsha B., Communications Coordinator, GNPI, Joplin
