One of Seattle’s proudest traditions is the Pike Place Market, right next door. The market thrives by providing the highest quality seasonal products indigenous to the Pacific Northwest. This allows Cutters--totally remodeled in April 2012--to be directly influenced by the unique nature of the market. Because of Cutters' ongoing commitment to incorporate only the finest seasonal Northwest ingredients in all menu offerings, we can truly say: “If it’s there, it’s here."

Great food and service

Food was excellent as was the service. Wait staff was very attentive. One of the nicest perks was a ride on the restaurant shuttle to the train station! It was a tad damp out!

Stopped in here for appetizers and drinks. Very loud and noisy. Chowder was good, clams were average. Martini's were below average. Crab cake was very good. Overall, could not recommend going here.

My family and I ate here on a late Thursday afternoon. We were seated immediately at a spot with floor to ceiling windows with fantastic views of the water. Our server was prompt, friendly, and courteous offering information about the menu and what the favorites are among patrons are as well as her own. The atmosphere inside was great in... More

We enjoyed a midweek dinner with family. The greeting was friendly and we were seated promptly at a nice table. Our waiter was engaging, witty and knowledgeable, and helped us make some fantastic choices. Everything we ordered looked, smelled and tasted wonderful. Plates were generous (value for money) and well presented. I recommend the crabs' legs -- hard work, but... More

Beautiful atmosphere for leisurely lunch on our first full day. The House Slad with crab came with wonderful bread basket containing sourdough bread and blueberry muffins form a local bakery ( Saturday special per server). Scrumptious large portions. Good and spicy Bloody Mary. Excellent and speedy service.

I enjoyed the view as much as the food. My crab stuffed prawns were good but the whole dinner would been better if it was served hot. The Yukon mashed potatoes were yummy as were the vegies.

Hadn't been to Cutters in years. 5 Star because it exceeded our expectations for lunch with our 20 month old grandson. My fish tacos were awesome. Son in Law had the snow crab, daughter had the PoBoy, and my wife had the chowder. Everything was really good. The staff and service was excellent. Next time in town, we will try... More

My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and went here for dinner. Very good experience, my wife had salmon which she very much liked. I had halibut which was the best fish dinner I've ever enjoyed. I would recommend this restaurant on the pier.

Unfortunately we paid $70 for two glasses of wine, two bowls of chowder, and an entree we split. To start we walked in and the host and his hostess staff were not very welcoming. They stuck us in a corner with no view, and our service through the majority of the meal was slow. I chose a glass of wine... More
