Serving the people of Butte for more than 80 years is Pork Chop John’s. Starting out in the early 1920s selling pork patties from a cart on the corner of Mercury and Main Street, John Berklund moved his business into the Doyle Hotel in 1924. The success of Pork Chop John’s continued to grow and a Butte delicacy was born. Although the Doyle Hotel is gone, the restaurant remains today, and it is still a firm favorite in Butte. What makes the restaurant so famous is their pork chop sandwich – three and a half ounces of premium boneless pork sirloin, which is breaded, battered, and cooked to perfection. Other items on the menu include traditional hot wings, chicken nuggets and ice cream. There are two locations for Pork Chop John’s, both of which offer daily specials.
A new addition to Butte’s restaurant circuit, which opened in March this year, is Park 217. Promoting itself as a fresh take on fine dining, Park 217 is locally owned and serves both international and local cuisine. Must-try dishes from their menu include the NY strip steak with roasted garlic mashed potatoes, grilled rib-eye with twice-baked potato, and house-made burger topped with applewood smoked bacon in a brioche bun. They also serve daily specials such as duck confit with arugula and green apple, seared duck breast served with wild rice, hand-breaded beef tenderloin in homemade beer batter, and grilled porterhouse pork chop in an apple cider marinade. Housed in a historic building and with ambient classic wooden and stone decor, Park 217 is destined to become a top restaurant in Butte.
