We went there for a special dinner for our anniversary. I had the Steak & Lobster with a Spinach Salad and Vegetables, my husband had their Crab Cakes with Vegetables and Cole Slaw. Mine was cooked perfectly and the dressing on the Spinach Salad was out of this world. My husband could not get done complimenting the Crab Cakes they... More

Had dinner this evening with my husband and and another couple. We saw specials on the board near the entrance which looked interesting. After looking over the menu, our server took our drink orders. We had a few questions regarding the specials and was clueless of what certain items were. The management should educate the wait staff on the food... More

I recently had the pleasure of dining with family at the Hunter's Den in Wilmington, DE. We had Crab Imperial, Blackened Salmon and Prime Rib. All the entrees were nice sized, prepared excellently and presented in a most appealing manner. For a table appetizer we shared the mushrooms stuffed with backfin crab and it was loaded. All three of us... More

We ate here recently for my husband's birthday. He wanted prime rib. Hunter's Den is definitely a great place to find steak and seafood. They have plenty of other choices on the menu also. Even though we were there mid evening on a weeknight they had the prime rib that my husband was craving for his birthday. The restaurant is... More

The seafood buffet was a poor excuse for buffet, the service is lacking, the person carving the prime rib looked like he just walked off a construction site and the restaurant looks like it hasn't been cleaned in years !! The parking lot is a land mine of deep pot holes that I wouldn't ride a bicycle through and the... More

My friend M. knew the woman who would be singing at Hunter's Den, so M., S. and I made the trek down to Wilmington, Delaware. We were warmly greeted and promptly seated upon arriving. Our waitress immediately came over, made sure we were comfortable, and took our drink orders. We noticed that there were people of all ages in the... More

We recently attended a matinee showing in Philadelphia but were eager to leave the city before dinner. We decided to have dinner at The Hunter's Den back home. It was a great choice! I knew the food was good because I had eaten there several times after funerals but never for dinner. It was crowded because it was Christmas Week... More

Recently had lunch at this establishment on a Friday while visiting the area. The restaurant is clean and we were graciously greeted by the hostess upon entering. The dining room had several large parties and other various diners. However, our party of 3 did not wait to be seated. Our server provided friendly, efficient service with a smile. The lunch...
