The service and food are outstanding. We ordered duck and native trout entrees, which were expertly prepared and promptly served in a casual setting.

Using fresh local food was why we came and the food was very good. Service was good. We unfortunately got sat right by the bar so was pretty noisy on a weekend night but that was our only negative. Prices were reasonable.

We save Duners for those nights in need for a consistently excellent meal. The fish and scallops are always perfectly cooked and sauced, pork chops are delicious, beef dishes decadent and scrumptious. Ask for advice, as the wait staff is always very knowledgeable and friendly with helpful tips for you. There is usually just one pasta dish, but you cannot... More

We had heard rave reviews about this place but were very disappointed with our experience. Walking in you notice the rusty dirty ceiling vents and very out of date decor. We were not worried we had confidence the food would be great. The place filled up fast, our waitress was great, food took forever and when we got it it... More

I took my daughter there last night on a Daddy/Daughter date. My wife and I had visited Duner's a couple of years ago, and I had forgotten about it. We had a great meal! I would rate it extraordinary. We had grilled scallops as an appetizer and the scallops were tender and perfectly presented. I had grilled halibut, she had... More

I have eaten at Duner's many times since I first moved to the area in 1998. I have never had a bad meal there. The menu changes constantly but always has a wide selection of seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes. Service is always quick, although sometimes not as friendly as you might wish. It is quite true this is not... More

You would never choose Duner's for a fine dining experience on a drive- by. It has the appearance of a diner. Inside it is noisy and has zero ambience. They do not take reservations. But my wife and I decided to give it a try because of the recommendation of our B&B hosts and comments we read about the quality... More

Like another reviewer, Duner's was recommended to us by a local about three years ago and we just got around to trying it. What an outstanding experience. Located about five miles west of Charlottesville, the exterior of the building belies what is inside. The interior is elegant in its simplicity. Nothing fancy, but an excellent experience. For our meal, we... More

Excellent food. The very best. Small and noisy but worth the Waite. Very local and they all go there. Kind of the neighbor hood place to be seen,

Duner's is five miles out of Charlottesville and you cannot make reservations, but well worth the trouble. Our 15 minute wait for a table was made into an enjoyable experience with a cocktail at the bar. Dinner was excellently cooked and service was superb. Of particular note was the soft-shelled crab and the New York strip steak. While staff were... More
