We've been going here for their half-price burger specials on Saturday since my daughter went to school nearby starting about 10 years ago. The burgers are really great, but they are normally way too expensive. However, their half-price special makes them worth the trip (on Saturday afternoons). We've gone with family and friends and everyone goes back.

We came for a relaxed dinner after a hectic day, got attentive service at 7:30 pm. Good comfort food, spaghetti w/meatballs, trout w/basmati rice. Not gourmet cuisine but a quiet, comforting dinner. Delicious raisin bread w/meal. Huge varied menu and good value specials. Will return! It was not noisy on a Thursday night.

Service was good. Food is plain and ok...but nothing spectacular. At times it can be very noisy. Nothing seems to be new in this restaurant. It is always predictable and a tad pricey.

I've eaten at Hunter's before. Their half price hamburgers on Saturday are very nice. This time I went there with three other family members for "Mexican Night." I ordered a chicken fajita. What a disappointment! We've all had great fajitas in Mexican Restaurants, and I certainly expected something similar for "Mexican Night" if you please? What arrived was a plate... More

The food here has never been disappointing. The staff seems to have been working here for quite a while. It has a "local pub/bar/restaurant" feel. We always go here when family comes from California. My elderly Mother-in-law lives close by and it is easy for her to get to and there are no stairs. Ask for one of the private... More

Honestly, if you want a 'real drink' this is the place to go in Potomac. I like to call Hunters "Home of the 10 ounce martini". Enough said. The food is hit or miss, really good burgers (I'm a burger snob) and pasta dishes. The rest is mostly standard level restaurant food, which is not to say that it isn't... More

We have been dinning at Hunters Inn for many years and continue to enjoy the excellent food and drink, as well as the friendly service. This is very much a local place with much repeat business, so it is somewhat like the neighborhood taverns of old. But Hunters is a huge cut above that, serving excellent food at all times... More

Hunters Inn may look a little dated but the food is always fresh and tasty. Compared to other restaurants in the Village, Hunters delivers quality food every time. The menu has many great selections, including burgers, salads, and more serious dinner fare. I often order the shrimp salad, which is served over a bed of lettuce tossed with vinagrette. There's...

Prices are high for very mediocre food. Owner often on the premises but has never asked us how are meal was or if he could help- usually at the bar. I would avoid this restaurant as there are so many more good places in the area.

This is the restaurant we always seem to take houseguests to for dinner. It has a good selection of choices on the menu which is always preferable to seafood only. We had a friend from Seattle visiting plus our two young grandchildren and everyone found what they wanted. The restaurant was very busy and we had to wait a little... More
