no salmon. OU should not have opened without one of the staples. Shrimp old??
It could have been purchased at Koger!!!
The salad dressing on the strawberry salad a new recipe???? no class and not the same.
Did not enhance salad at all.
This is the only restaurant that has any class in Athens and it absolutely was bad, I do understand everything going on, but these issues have nothing to do with the above.
The best food in the world can be served on Paper and still taste good.
Good luck in getting the OU INN back to the name it deserves.
We’ve dined at Cutler’s a number of times and have always had more than satisfactory service. But tonight was not a got experience. We got to the restaurant rather early. It was not busy. It took our waitress 12 minutes to even acknowledge that we were there. We ordered drinks and had to ask for straws multiple times. We ordered hors devours and they came out at exactly the same time as our dinner. Our waitress only checked on us when our food came out. Then we waited for 45 minutes to get her attention to bring us our bill and Togo boxes. She didn’t even package them up for us. She never asked if we wanted dessert. Total disappointment, except for the live music and time with my girls. We we were headed to a daddy daughter gala. Super disappointed.
Great B-day/Sibs weekend dinner! Fantastic service always makes it special!
Birthday dinner- food was high-quality and service was excellent.
Let me start by saying was down for dads weekend. So have to expect certain things. Overall the food was delicious. Shortcomings was service and location. I had taken 2 of my triplets to dinner for their birthday. They attend OU so was looking for better then bar food. Daughter had a filet and my son and I had rib eye. Steaks were tasty...I ordered mine blackened. Mine could have had more flavor..it appeared only slight season was used. The down side was even though we had reservations we were seated in the bar. I was somewhat bothered by a group that was drinking and loud. Was really hoping for conversation time as for not seeing the kids in awhile. But otherwise everything worked. I imagine we will give it another try next time thru town.
I visited Athens for Dad's Weekend and came for dinner here with my family. The staff was very friendly, and they sat us next to the fireplace - - felt like VIPs. The atmosphere is lovely - - lighting was perfect. There is a beautiful view into a courtyard, and live music was playing at a proper sound level. Service and food were timely and excellent. My steak was cooked as ordered, and my son's andouille and crawfish ravioli was delicious. I will definitely come back again!
Best Restaurant in Athens! We always love the experience and location to campus.
We visited Cutler’s after the football game. They put our group in a separate room to accommodate our 8-person group. We had a TV and control of the lighting and personal service. The food was quite good.
Service is poor, won’t be back. Food average and overpriced
The quality of the food here is outstanding. Last night our meal included a 10/10 peperonata (with ricotta crostini), a great mixed greens salad with fresh local greens, a 10/10 pork ragu with perfectly al dente fresh pappardelle, and incredible desserts including a chocolate amaretti cake and a pear honey cake. Excellent service, and the chef prepared a more basic pasta dish for our daughter.
We have been here several times when coming in from out of town. The service has been a little slow almost every time but the food and waiters are excellent so not a deal breaker. We will be back for sure!
Steaks were fabulous - mac and cheese had no flavor - we sat for 20 min. before someone addressed us then 20 min later asked for a waitress - then that waitress forgot our bread - food took a long time and was not that crowded - then had to take our check up to pay - not sure what happened but steaks were great!
Terrible service not even busy. Waited over an hour and hadn’t ordered food yet. Left without eating dinner
This restaurant serves good food, but the service is very slow.
Wonderful setting. Quiet. Service was great. Food very good.
We had 2 appetizers: Crab cakes and green tomatoes with pork belly. Crab cakes could have been hotter, but were good. Green tomato app was good. The Creme Brûlée for dessert was awesome. Best we've ever had. The rolls at the beginning were very good. The bad part was the service. They were not busy at all. I think we were the only ones there on a Sat. night. The server took too long to come to our table at the beginning and never came to take our payment after bringing the bill. We had to get up and walk around to find her or someone, anyone to take our money.
Great food and even better service
Reasonably priced and decent food selection. It is a good restaurant.
Cutlers Restaurant at the beautiful Ohio University Inn is a lovely place for any meal. My filet mignon for dinner was superb and melted in my mouth. We love dining at Cutlers!!
It was outstanding! The food is always great and the service was superb!
Outstanding from start to finish!!! By far the best restaurant in Athens!
Food quality was good, however the wait staff left a lot to be desired. We finally sought out a different waiter to help us Because the waitress who was supposed to take our order left us sitting there for 20 minutes. The other problem was the hostess said she needed to seat us in the tavern. Two other tables were filed there.
We arrived at 1:15, which seemed a little early to close the dining room. The other people on the wait staff seemed fixated on doing a changeover , maybe the wanted to leave? Not sure. The waiter who I asked to help us was on top of it and made sure our food order came out quickly.
The ambiance was excellent with the fireplace going & comfy seating. The food was very tasty and filling. Our waitress was friendly & very attentive to our needs. We will definately return.
Great service. Very happy with our meal. I would recommend eating here on a trip to ou!
Waited 2 hours to eat. Waitress tired to pass off one wine for another. They were out of all red wine by the glass except for one brand. Two people had to send their food back twice as it was not cooked. The waitress brought back a different steak form what was sent back. HORRIBLE experience. So bad the manager comped the whole meal.
Had an enjoyable dinner with my wife and daughter as we were in town for Freshman drop-off at Ohio University. In town with limited fine dining choices Cutler’s has been pulling off for decades. Quality of food was good, service was excellent. We will be back again.
My wife and I enjoyed going to this restaurant for our anniversary. We booked through OpenTable and it was literally the only restaurant that was on the app. So we really didn’t have another choice for our Anniversary dinner. The food was good but there was a few bland items. The mashed potatoes were a bit on the dry side. Other then that the place was very classy and quite. The servers were really nice. Over all 3 stars.
Service and Food are both outstanding. They really take care of you and provide a great dining experience. We have been here 2 out of 2 wedding anniversaries and will go again!
I had to return my 9oz. filet because it was cooked medium well not medium rare as ordered. My group enjoyed their entrees while I waited an extra 25 minutes for a new steak. The waitress asked if I wanted it boxed to go before she served it. For $36? Nope. The steak was served but my side did not come out until I was finished with the steak. No manager in sight. The waitress comped my can of beer. The restaurant was very empty. Easter dinner wasn't what I expected.
Super in every way!!!
I took my son here for his birthday and the food was excellent (filet with asparagus/Brussels sprouts). We had great service, someone was playing the piano, it wasn't overly loud and I was pleased with the entire evening. We will back again.
Great little gem in Athens!
Cutler’s has earned a reputation for reasonable prices, friendly and professional service, a very good food. It was our pleasure to enjoy dinner there on a Friday night!
Very Excellent meal and celebration for wedding anniversary
The entrees and accompaniments were creative and quite good, particularly the salmon. Dessert , an apple crisp with caramelized toasted pecans topped with ice cream and warm caramel sauce, was spectacular. The only negative tho was the somewhat rapid-beat music which was annoying and stressing. Service was very good.
I came here to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday and could not have been more impressed. The service was phenomenal from the friendly hostess to our helpful server. The food was great and really matched the great atmosphere. Thank you to the whole Cutlers Crew for making this special occassion that much more special.
Wonderful meal and a great waitress. A hidden gem. The entire staff was extremely nice.
My wife and I spent a great evening with dinner at Cutlers. Our first experience and will be back! The food is amazing and the service is fantastic! They treated us as we were the only two dining that night. There is a piano player that was awesome also! Played everything from Beethoven, to Pink, to everybody loves Raymond. All 3 courses and the wine was some of the best that Athens provides.
Went to dinner there for my daughters graduation, expected a regular menu, and was told that it was buffet only. Totally misrepresented the dining experience. Thought I was going to a steak house for dinner, not a Golden Corral. Especially when they told me it was $60 per person for over cooked terrible looking food.
