Woodinville Cut Shop is the time machine that you didn’t know existed, and it’s not as hard to access as you might think.
In the heart of what used to be old town Woodinville, the restaurant and lounge brings a whole new vibe and atmosphere to the area.
Originally just a train stop on the railroad, over the years the shop hasn’t always been as groovy as it is now. It operated as a grocery store back in the 40’s, and turned into the Woodinville Tavern from the 1950’s – 1970’s before becoming McCorys on Slough in the late 1970’s until 2017.
“We take the legacy of this spot and its role in the community very seriously,” said Gabe Johnson, part-owner of Woodinville the Cut Shop.
Stepping inside the shop is a little like stepping out of this century, and into a simpler time.
“I think we prefer a time when people tapped their community for their entertainment instead of their phones or smart TV," said Johnson. “It’s irreverent and familiar, playful and designed to spark conversation with the person sitting next to you.”
Unlike most modern-day eateries, the Cut Shop doesn’t have TVs on every wall, playing at all times.
“We’re able to create an atmosphere where we can look everyone in the eye and ask how their day was," said Johnson. “We get to know our neighbors and guests.” Johnson said.

When you’re feeling like you need to get back to the good ol’ days, step out of the city and into a blast from the past, boogie back to the 1970's at the Woodinville Cut Shop.
Woodinville Cut Shop owners (married couple Gabe Johnson and Megan Tweed) and their partner Mike Meckling had a vision of creating a place that could serve as a gathering spot for community. The eatery opened last spring at the former McCorry's on the Slough location in Woodinville. The new restaurant has a decidedly 1970's motif complete with odes to Burt Reynolds, Sally Field and Steve McQueen. It also features a 70's rec room re-creation including an 8 track, ceramic owls, light up beer signs and more. Woodinville Cut Shop boasts a lounge and restaurant with menu items like deviled eggs, meatballs, fettuccine alfredo and other food faves from the past.
