Ah, what a refreshing change! This restaurant is in an old house, and that's exactly what it looks like! Decorated with a lot of antiques and country pieces - but not overly kitschy. Scott was our server, Michael was the bartender - both were outstanding! Attentive but not hovering, informative but not overwhelming. We ordered Escargot, Mushroom Soup, Lobster Crepes,... More

Stopped by for drinks and then light dinner. Wait staff was very accommodating even though they we not really set up to serve outside.

My wife and I were meeting a business associate from out-of-town for dinner. We ordered drinks which came fairly promptly. I managed to knock mine over. The hostess and waitstaff responded quickly and professionally, cleaning up my mess and replacing my drink. (They make a good Manhattan). My wife and "guest" shared the cheese plate and thought it quite tasty.... More

Every year we hold our company holiday party at Duling-Kurtz. The staff is attentive and the food is amazing. They host it exactly to our specifications.

The DK is one of our very favorite restaurants, it's just a gem. The menu is varied, from excellent bistro fare to sophisticated fine dining entrees. All the classics, the smoked trout or escargot, steaks, chops, duck, and salmon are flawlessly performed, plus the wiener schnitzel, lobster crepes, bronzino, and pheasant are also some of our favorites. There are new,... More

The Happy Hour is a great way to experience the attentive service, fine drinks, reasonable bar food menu, and interesting live music at this beautiful Chester County country inn. Dinner is pricey. Stroll the grounds before the sun sets.

For nearly 20 years I have listened to my companion wax poetic about the Duling-Kurtz House. She had been there once, in the 1980s, and raved about the food and the decor. We had never been there together, so we made a special trip to visit. Turned out that everything she had said about this place was right! Our friendly... More

The ambiance and atmosphere are wonderful. The food is even better. Nice menu. Highly recommend this place for a special dinner. It is not cheap, so be ready when the tab comes...but it is worth it.

I was here with a large group of people for a business dinner. The service was excellent - the meal was well paced for our enjoyment. Menu was varied and the meals were well presented and delicious. The setting is very pretty as well and it is a nice place to take out of town guests.
