We were hungry for crab and this was near Pike Place. We shared the Sampler that comes with three types: Alaskan King Crab Legs, Snow Crab Legs and Dungeness Crab. The last two were fine but the king crab legs, which come split lengthwise were dry, chalky, and tasted old. For $65 we had higher expectations. We'd advise staying away... More

Enjoyed our dinner of halibut. Lucky to have a window view table to watch the activities on the water. Service was very good. Delicious sour dough bread. We had 2 different people recommend this location

I was in town only for one night for business but knew I wanted some good seafood while in Seattle! It was close proximity to Pike Place Market so that was a bonus. Great service and I started out with the Lavender Cosmo. Delicious!!! I had three! I ordered the shrimp cocktail as an appetizer. I was disappointed as they... More

We splurged and ordered the $35 mac and cheese with lobster and dungeness crab. It was large enough for 2 people to split and still feel full. The cheese was abundant and the dish had large pieces of lobster and crab. The dungeness crab dip for the appetizer was heavenly as well. We were seated by the window near the... More

It's been a couple years since we've eaten at Cutters so needless to say, the menu has changed. We were happy when our food arrived and it was as great as the last time we had eaten there. They have a good variety of seafood dishes and if you don't like seafood, they have other choices as well. And I... More

Clams, steamed, were very good. 1 pound in wine sauce. Freshly baked sourdough bread was served. The fish & chips were crunchy, only 3 pieces in the dinner selection served with coleslaw. The seafood kabobs were good but only 2 in the dinner portion served with mashed potatoes and baby broccoli floweretts.

A very nice restaurant where everyone was friendly and the windows/scenery make it easy to enjoy the waterfront view. We started out with a couple of Old Cask Old Fashions - really good! I do like it when the bartender puts enough thought into their drinks to use the huge ice balls, a nice fancy touch. We ordered the calamari... More

Cutters is a nice place on the edge of Pike Market overlooking the waterfront. Most of the tables in the front of the restaurant are treated to views of the Sound and the waterfront. I personally like to watch the ferries come and go, and at sunset, that's a beautiful thing. I arrived a bit before my colleagues, so I... More

I really enjoyed my food here. I went to the bar and the bartender was on point. I ordered the crap cakes and they were spot on. I even went back the next day to get another order. So if you are in town stop by. the location was great and yes you have a great view.

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."
