Cutler's bills itself as a steak and seafood restaurant, and that's exactly what it is. There was one pasta entrée on the menu, but other than that it's beef and fish. Steaks start at about $30 and go up from there. Not finding anything else appealing at the time I ordered a fillet for the second night in a row.... More

Cutler's is located inside Ohio University conference and hotel center. It is definitely worth stopping for a meal and the food was great and the service was wonderful.

I booked reservations for dinner here for my son's graduation because the menu online looked yummy, upscale and good (albeit pricey for Athens, OH). I booked for nine people, including my son's girlfriend and her family. When we got there, we were seated and *only then* told that their was no menu service available, only a buffet. I was disappointed,... More

There was 5 of us and none of us were very impressed with the food. I cut into my 10oz fillet ($34) which I had asked for medium rare and it was cook all the way, like well done. I asked the waitress to replace. She asked me to cut the steak in halve and sure enough in the middle... More

I have often eaten lunch at Cutler's with guests. Usually, the room is quiet, service is quick, and food is tasty. I highly recommend the Pumpkin bread sandwich (even if it not fall). The cost is reasonable, private conversation is possible, wait attendants are friendly.

Ordered breakfast off of the menu and have had better for a lot less money! The Buffet looked good but much more food than we typically eat so we did not order it. Wish they had complementary coffee for guests who would just like coffee.

This is in the conference center so if you are staying here it is very convenient. Breakfasts are good and not too $$ dinner is above average but $$$$.

Spent 3 weeks at the Ohio University Inn where Cutlers is located and ate each night at the restaurant. Overall, the restaurant is hit and miss. Some nights, the dinner is excellent then the next night the same entree is awful. For the price that is being charged this consistency needs to be improved.

We stayed at the OU Inn for the weekend and went down to Cutler's for breakfast. They offered a varied menu, but we went with the buffet plus omelet. The buffet was decent with your usual breakfast items. The omelets were very good and fresh. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very nice, and I bet the dinner scene is... More

I'll first mention the outdoor dining here is quiet pleasant. The menu is not too long and not too short with tasty offerings and a truncated but decent wine list. Our server was friendly and polite but very young and inexperienced - for instance, he had difficulty opening the wine bottle at the table. The food was good but not... More
