Pricey, but Worth It

I was in Athens for a business trip, stayed at the Ohio University Inn (where Cutler's is located), and ate here my first night. I was surprised by the prices - $20-nearly $40/entree - but the food was worth it. I had the filet mignon and the lava cake for dessert, and found both delicious. The... read more

I was pleasantly stunned with how well prepared the entrees and small plates are. The wine list is more than adequate. Service was excellent.

Pros: at hotel for easy access. Cons: crazy overpriced for the area. Crazy overdone. We stayed at the hotel for the weekend, decided to visit Cutlers for the live music. We arrived into the restaurant at 6pm on a Saturday night; apparently reservations were not needed,...it was empty. Live music showed up; a guy with guitar. Music was nice, but... More

I've eaten my way through the lunch menu and let me tell you, the less said the better. When the kitchen butchers your grilled cheese sandwich -- I was foolish enough to think even a third-grader couldn't make a mess of something so elementary -- then you know its time to eat elsewhere. As I write this I see the... More

Food not very hot and not well seasoned. Multiple selections on menu. The service was fine overall and I would try again. Not sure if they changed Chef but food not as good as last visit.

We had lunch and when I saw the 5-10-20 Menu ( that's how many minutes it takes to make your meal), I knew I was in for possibly really good food. I wasn't disappointed. The Ruccola, chicken Flatbread was prepared so well and fresh! Too much for me, so my friend took it for later. Her Garden Burger was soooo... More

Excellent place! Superb food! Amazing service! From breakfast to dinner, the best choice! I've spent a month at the hotel and Cutler's made it an awesome stay.

the bread was slightly stale but aside from that, the food was definitely tasty and not horribly priced for a nicer restaurant.

I've eaten breakfast several times and it is always tasty. The buffet is very tasty with many healthy options (which are often hard to find at more traditional restaurants). Dinner had also been good here. The staff is always very friendly. The restaurant is often very quiet with few patrons if you visit during the week. They host many special... More
