REVIEWS OF Belmont Butchery IN Virginia

Patrick Powell

Tanya and her staff are top notch. I've gone to them for steaks to whole pigs and everything in between. They are knowledgeable and have great suggestions if you are looking for quick meals at home or a feast for the holidays.

Robin J

Great meats - if you are looking for something unique, this is the place to go. However, it comes with a price. Do your homework as you can find many of these meats at other stores at a more reasonable price. Twice I have called to get something, and when I go to pick it up I was blown away by the price. I won't let it happen again. I called to see if they had veal shanks on Saturday, which they did. When I went in to pick up the 3 (that's THREE veal shanks - to serve two of us for dinner), the total came to $107. I don't care where they came from or what those animals ate - you cannot tell me that three veal shanks should cost over $100. I won't go again just because it is too pricey.

Excellent, Excellent, Excellent! Can't wait to try their homemade headcheese and make ostrich burgers from the grind they happened to have in the freezer!! Thanks Belmont Butchery, you're world-class :)

En Esstah

Expensive, but an excellent place for gourmet meats.

David McMahon

I am transitioning to quality pasture raised meats and fats. Everyone here is so knowledgeable and helpful. I buy everything from bacon to steak. They give great advice on cuts and selection. It's a pleasure to shop at Belmont.

Seth Litterst

Patrick Duke

Quality and knowledge of product.

Benjamin Larson

You want meat? They got it. Worried about picking from all the choices? Don't worry the staff there will answer any questions you have. Don't forget to pick up some delectable cheeses and sauerkraut either.

Lamb merguez was great.

Matt Harvey

Kurt Rudolph

Great cuts of locally pasture raised beef and pork, house made sausage and bacon and knowledgeable/friendly staff.

JD Williams

I come in to get casings to make sausage at home. Almost always leave with additional stuff - and it's always great. Staff is knowledgeable and engaging. I like to take my time and listen to them talk with other folks. Never know what interesting ideas or tips come your way.

David Broome

Beth Kappus

Great place, best meats

Warren Sealock

Super friendly staff and great selection! The sausages were amazing and talking through the options helped me find a few kinds I may not have otherwise tried. Highly recommend!

Erickson Lee

Friendly staff and amazing meats! I drive 40 minutes one way to get there and it's the only place I'll go.

Adam Radzisauskas

I drove a long way to come here and bought nothing, primarily due to the crazy high prices. I guess the high end clientele of Carytown carries this place but I refuse to spend this kind of money. It's been a month since I've been there so I can't remember the exact numbers but it was shocking. I immediately left here and renewed my Costco membership where I can buy USDA prime meats for at least half the price than this butchery. I'm not saying they don't have nice stuff, and I'm sure the staff is great too. The $60 Costco membership will be made up in the savings of one purchase. Try to avoid this place at lunch, the parking is horrendous.

russell hise

Excellent butcher shop with many options and great advice. Not only will they help you pick out a great cut of meat they'll give you advice on cooking times.

Skip Rowland

I needed an appropriate Meet for a wild game chili cook off and Belmont Butchery came up when I googled wild game in Richmond. Henry and the gang took care of me, sawing a frozen two pound block of wild boar into quarters. I had never been there before and until I went to pick up my game, Upon arrival it looked like a lovely place to shop. It appears that they have just about anything you could be looking for and if they don't, they could probly get it.

Holly Lake

Julie Charbonnier

Amazing place for meats, paté and more! Reasonably priced, passionate owner, dedicated staff - a unique place in Richmond!

Nancy Thomas

Thank you for being kind always, and the freshest meat!


Unless you are buying from the farm, their quality and selection of meats is the best Richmond has to offer.

Eric Adoboli

Quaneysha Daniels

They have excellent size oxtails at amazing prices!!!!!!! They will have my business one a month.

Barbara Katherine Keller

This is really the only butcher in town, it is expensive but they have good quality products ( wish they would carry more organics). Moving here from north-western VA, we got most of our meats from small stores directly from local farms which were much cheaper than Belmont-- shame ( and strange) it's more pricey here in Richmond. Honestly though, as much as their products are good, I don't enjoy going there as everyone is terribly grumpy. My family and I laugh about it - but I don't get it! They will tell you exactly what you need to know about cooking your meal with their products, but don't expect to feel warm and fuzzy from the delivery of their answers!

Jenn Schmidt

They are always friendly, knowledgeable and passionate to meet your meat needs. Despite a line at times, they always give the time to truly make sure you get everything you want and more. High quality foods and goods!

Leo Somera

I go to this butcher shop about twice a month for select cuts. They are a knowledgeable staff and have a nice selection of local meats. Ask them questions and ask for recommendations, and they will educate. On a suggestion, I tried their Bacon Ground Beef (ground beef with bacon pork cuts), and I'm hooked. I get this when it is available.

Aaron Mestas

J Bosher

Absolutely amazing customer service. I’ve called in a couple of times and spoken with a few different people. Everyone is so nice and so helpful. They really set the bar for outstanding customer service. It is so refreshing to see a business truly care about their customers. Keep up the great work!

Katie E. Hoffman

They're the best. Knowledgeable staff and fabulous meats, wines, and specialty foods. We always shop there when we're in RVA.

Laura Bonsky

Very professional and friendly, helpful staff. All of the meats look wonderful and fresh. Been here several times for special orders and will definitely be back!!

emily Tucker

This place is a TOTAL GEM!! I absolutely love going to Belmont Butchery. The people running it are great. They offer a wide variety of 5 STAR products and create a completely unique atmosphere that anyone can enjoy. I don't mind spending the extra dollar because its hands down one of the best products in Richmond. They work with local farmers which is a total win for me and my family, and for the city of Richmond!

Sean Ferguson

It's a small and very busy little butchery with a good amount of staff to take orders. I've never had to wait long for my order to be taken and I've been impressed with the quality of what I purchased. For an early Christmas dinner I bought lamb loin chops and the staff got my large order processed pretty quickly when in all truth I should have ordered in advance. They have a good variety of meat and cuts, and much of it is locally sourced and you can find grass fed and hormone free selections. The prices are more than a grocery store but you get what you pay for, and if you are doing a special dinner then I would highly recommend their level of quality.

stephanie miller

Great selection of high quality meats and friendly, knowledgeable staff.

Stacy English

I don't understand all these positive reviews. The customer service was terrible. The owner would rather talk to her friend than help a customer. I was not even acknowledged. Even after patiently waiting I was talked down to about what I wanted to order. It was not sliced the way I needed it to be. (Which I've been able to do at other butcher shops) The owner even made a racist remark while I was there. I support local businesses whenever I can. However I will not be supporting this one. I've also heard that she has sued several other local competitors which rubs me the wrong way as well. Build community. Don't tear it down.

Jack Maynard

Went in to buy a couple hundred dollars worth of meat for myself and dog. So no parking! Had to walk close to 3rd of a mile. Soon as I walked in the door Tanya a true democrat started to lie about federal laws. Since she doesn't like dogs or scared of them I had to leave. Great way to run a business!! Pretty sure it's illegal to say who you can and can't have for customers!! Went to 3 other butcher shops had NO PROBLEM with my service dog! Also went to Krispy Kreme no problems! You can almost touch the donuts!! Also I work at a place where we build food equipment! No problem with my service dog at work!! Stay away! LIBBY MARKET is 2 miles away! And the customer service at LIBBY's is AWESOME. They made sure everything was great and was so happy that I choose a local store to spend my hard earned money at!!

Nick Derosa

Adam Torborg

I went back for the second time now and got ribeye steaks that were pasture raised about an hour from here. In a rather unscientific study, I cooked them alongside a couple from a supermarket just to see if there was a noticeable difference. Everyone who compared agreed the steaks from Belmont were hands down much better. The staff is so helpful and the meat seems so fresh. I don't think I will buy steaks anywhere else again.

Scott Dinning

Old school style butchery with friendly and knowledgeable staff! Pretty steep prices, but if you want to explore something different, or if you're looking for some nice charcuterie to compliment a cheese plate, this is the place to go! When you're there: I suggest you ask the staff "what's good?" when they get to you. Trust these guys, they'll show you some AWESOME food! Seriously, don't go in there with your heart set on anything specific. You'll be pleasantly surprised if you simply talk to the guy behind the counter.

tyler ayers

Helpful staff. Always willing to make recommendations and are truly friendly and wanting to build community relationships. Wide meat selection and always a great place to try something new

Jesse Carmichael

Expect great quality when you visit belmont butchery. They always have some excellent, though changing offerings. They sell dry aged beef, as well as exotic offerings such as wild boar and sometimes camel. Around the holidays I even once saw a Wagyu A5 Rib Roast. You'll definitely not find anything like that anywhere else in Richmond.

We have been buying here for years and I drive by two other local stores to shop at best butcher in Richmond. Last week I picked up two grass fed, dry-aged tenderloins and grilled a filet minion feast for friends. They were spectacular.
