Everything inside The Butler House, from the photos sitting on the fireplace mantel to the knickknacks on the shelves, was placed with purpose and has its own story, owner Marina Frenchak said.

“We made a home for everybody to feel [The Butler House is] a second home,” she said.

With a yellow house facade, the restaurant opened two years ago and is located on Gosling Road just north of the Grand Parkway. It is in the heart of The Vintage Creek Centre, a 7-acre office and retail development also owned by Marina and her husband, Bryan.

The Butler House offers a full-service bar with house martinis and specialty cocktails, and it serves new-American cuisine such as the Butler Burger, a locally sourced beef burger served in a brioche bun.

In addition to brunch, lunch and dinner, the restaurant also serves as an event space, often holding charity events, holiday parties and live music nights.


“Everybody was like, ‘You’re all crazy. You want to do a place where you can have children and movies and bingo? ... [Gosling Road] is going to kill you,’” Marina said. “And here we are two years later, success made with heart, which is very different.”

Marina said much of The Butler House’s decor was thoughtfully selected to create an intimate environment for the restaurant’s guests. Whereas some eateries might use booths with high backs to allow for more privacy, Marina said The Butler House uses seating with low backs so guests have the opportunity to chat with the people around them.

“The height of the chairs is of big significance,” she said. “They’re the perfect height to say hello to friends, to hug who’s sitting around you.”

According to Marina, The Butler House is a new concept restaurant continuing to expand its services. The eatery recently began a catering service and has plans to construct a patio bar for more outdoor events and activities in the future.

“I feel it’s a place that is very blessed, and we’re very blessed,” she said. “Each time that door opens, we celebrate people that walk in.”
