We stopped at Duner's after a wonderful outing of golf at Birdwood Golf Course. And, while they don't take reservations, we arrived shortly after 5 pm (opening time) and they accommodated a group of 8 guys quite easily. However, On a Wednesday evening, it didn't take long for the tables to fill around us. The service was exceptional, quick and... More

Decor is outdated. We were seated so close to the people next to us, their conversation provided a full dinner-time "show" for us. Crab cakes were great. Pork chops were good. Salads were good.

We often visit Duner's on our trips to Charlottesville and we visited recently. Their extensive, weekly changing menu is rather extensive with many options. Our food is always tasty and well prepared. The flash fried oysters and Halibut were especially nice, unfortunately they ran out of the soft shells. Their appetizers are nicely portioned so you may consider just ordering... More

We arrived for dinner and were placed at a quiet side of the restaurant. The waitress came and took our order. Then she arrived to our table again and again and again (when not bringing food or drink). She literally talked to us a dozen times, interrupting conversation and annoying the hell out of me. She even asked us which... More

Really tasty elevated yet homey tasting food. Entrees are very large portions, considering sharing. Fills up quickly, easiest to get a table on a weeknight close to opening time.

Let me just say I would have rated Duner's significantly higher if I was there at another time on another day. It was recommended by he owners of the B&B where we were staying.The food was quite good. I had a steak that was cooked to perfection and my wife had crab cakes. they were also great. The scalloped potatoes... More

Fantastic service and equally fantastic food. Not going there for the view or decor. Every dish my wife or I have had has been great. Oysters are plump and cooked perfectly. Pasta dishes are creative and consistently outstanding. Lamb was spot on. Full rack, tender with a great Rosemary sauce.

Best veal scallopini I've had in a very long time! Glad we weren't discouraged by lack of reservations and posts of long waits We were there on a Thursday night in June and were seated immediately Homemade fettuccine was wonderful My hubby enjoyed his pork chop

Food is well prepared and interesting. But the bar scene and the alcohol consumption of the table guests combined with too many tables for the relatively small space results in an intolerable din throughout the dining experience.

One of the best in Cville. Food is excellent! Service exceptional. The owner is always there and greets you at the door. This is a very local restaurant. Menu is updated daily. We try and go at least 4-5 times a year. Located west of Charlottesville on route 250 in the area of Ivy. It is a must!!!
