You may have been wondering what this new place is that has taken over the old McCorry’s on the Slough. It only takes driving by on a busy Saturday night to know that you should stop in and see what all the buzz is about. A cut shop? What does that mean? Very intriguing…

While the space was completely gutted and re-done, Woodinville Cut Shop owners Mike Meckling, Gabe Johnson and Megan Tweed wanted to honor the rich history of the building which has been around since the 1930s. It has always been a local gathering spot and place of community and the trio intend to carry on that tradition. The vibe is inspired by their collective memories of the 1970s which you instantly feel when you walk into the building.

The space is very social in its set-up, taking you from cocktail bar to booths to long communal tables. Everything is tricked out in natural wood and vibrant orange. The dining room doubles as a dance floor and the lounge is a great place to relax and watch the game or socialize with friends. The clever décor and special touches make you feel like you are sitting in your living room in another era. Truly inspired, with no detail overlooked.

The Cut Shop brings a whole new take on American roadhouse with a traditional American-inspired menu updated for modern tastes. While open for just about three months, they have been listening to their customers and recently revamped the menu. They were sure to keep all the crowd favorites, and add some tasty new options. The cocktail menu was also updated and feature some of our favorite Woodinville wineries and breweries!

They are conveniently located at 12801 NE 175th Street and the parking is no problem with over 50 stalls. At first glance, the building itself doesn’t appear to have any windows, but the back of the restaurant has glass doors that open with nice flow to a spacious patio area with picnic tables and fire pit. Just off to the side, you enter a relaxed beer garden with a rock waterfall. The hip 70s vibe is carried throughout. Are you starting to feel a little nostalgic?

Let’s talk events.

Every Tuesday is Prime Rib and half price bottle of wine night. ALL BOTTLES!

Clear out the tables for Honky-tonk Thursdays. Both kinds of live music, Country and Western, every other Thursday night. The live music action starts at 8pm sharp. $5 cover charge. Come early for dinner and stay late!

Instead of your traditional Sunday, The Cut Shop offers a BBQ Brunch every Sunday at 11AM. Families can spend the entire day! Then, one Sunday of the month The Cut Shop pulls out all the stops with live music and “Chicken Shit Bingo”. Yes, you heard right. You’ll need to come meet Tonya Tucker, the star of Sunday Social Bingo. You won’t be disappointed!

Be sure to check out Woodinville Cut Shop social media for future events and because, well, their social media is pretty rad. Windy the clown head, their vintage balloon machine from the 40s even has its own Instagram.

Visit them at and be sure to book your private event or just reserve the lounge area for a large group.

So, what is a cut shop? Put away your cellphones, and let’s all remember all that pre-internet fun we used to have. Bring your family, friends, or simply come by for some grub after a day of wine tasting. We encourage you to find out.
