10 Best Seattle Butchers

  • 305 NW 82nd St, Seattle • Greenwood
    Rand Fishkin - This place is special - amazing staff, great prices, good quality, but it feels like going back in time. You're on the butchering floor. There's a paper price list. There's nothing on display. And if you're like me, the first time you walk in, they'll greet you with a "first" It's half delightful, half terrifying, and exactly what buying meat should be.
    Tom Laramee - This small butcher in a very nondescript building has a broad offering of fresh meat and the staff is really helpful. You can call your order in beforehand for quicker service.
    Steve Dossick - Amazingly old school...need a leg of lamb for Christmas or Easter? Best place to order it from.

  • 1531 Melrose Ave, Seattle • Capitol Hill
    Laura - Great, experienced butcher sources from fantastic local farms. Be warned, parking is painful.
    Steve Dossick - Excellent butcher, and they have a great service where they email you a "Fresh Sheet" on Tuesdays, with free doorstep delivery on Thursday afternoon.
    Rich Tong - Amazing quality at amazing prices in melrose market. Try the bone in rib eye steak from painted hills was spectacular (and just about the price of gold, but worth it).

    They have farm fresh eggs and the lamb is incredible as well.

  • 2401 Queen Anne Ave N, Seattle • Queen Anne
    Maria Hess - B&E Meats on QA is high quality with an excellent selection. They have helpful employees for answering questions about how to cook, how much to buy, etc.
    Cheryl - B&E Meats in Queen Anne is great. My dad used to be a butcher, and even he approves. It has easy parking in Queen Anne with a couple of parking spaces to go in and pick-up what you need. We don’t go anywhere else for meat.
  • 4861 Rainier Ave S, Seattle • Columbia City
    Rich Tong - Wow, they are a wonderful place. They are fresh and local and the prices are really incredible. The rib eye and the chicken we bought have been great. They don't have organic written everywhere but the stuff is definitely fresh and tasty.

    Main thing is to make sure to eat it up or freeze it pretty quickly, this is no preservatives good stuff.

    Judy East - Great service, delicious meats including lamb and chicken. Can call for special orders.

Lawrence Lerner +1 for @Zeebs333's recommendation. I am a vegetarian but this is where I go for meat for my partner. Great location and selection.
Liz Pearce @bglais01 Where did you end up going? What did you have for Thanksgiving? :)
Brian Glaister Better meat in greenwood for nystrip. It is everything you'd want in an olde timey butcher! So glad that these sorts of places still exist.
