Returned for another visit on our anniversary, and had very good experience. The menu included some interesting specials, which we took advantage of. The service was excellent, as has always been our experience over the years. Thank you!
Lunch was wonderful as usual. I am never disappointed with the specials. And our waitress, June, was lovely, cheerful and made the experience all the more enjoyable. This is my favorite place for lunch for any occasion. You must try the escargots they are a culinary delight.
Food delicious. Service outstanding. Ambience lovely. Pricing fair. Convenient parking. A delightful experience.
Fantastic from start to finish! The Perfect Martini was PERFECT! We really enjoyed the live music. Food was exquisite. They were happy to prepare our calamari appetizer sauteed instead of breaded and fried and it was outstanding. The spaghetti squash with shrimp and scallops was delicious! And our shared chocolate peanut butter lava cake was worth every calorie! ;) And the service was friendly and prompt.
Excellent meal and great service as we celebrated our wedding anniversary.
Never a disappointment with the staff or the excellent food.
Excellent birthday dinner. Food was amazing and the service was excellent. We will be bck!
Celebrated a birthday. Lovely old building with a number of small dining rooms. Rather dark for 6 pm but good for candles. Waitress well-versed and helpful. Food interesting and tasty. Some of the best only came in bottles, but at least they had New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc! Looked like a nice bed and breakfast too.
Food was fantastic, it does need parking lot repairs and a fresh coat if paint inside. The green is outdated.
Rustic ambiance in a cozy old inn. Attentive, friendly service. Prompt seating upon arrival and leisurely pace of meal. Special offerings were quite tasty. Cantaloupe soup was a seasonal hit. Corvina fish delicious. Crab wontons were disappointing since there were three tiny morsels with no evidence of crab. Regular entrees such as rack of lamb, lobster crepes and Wiener schnitzel were all high quality. Very expensive drinks, appetizers, entrees and desserts. Expect to spend at least $90 per person. This place should be reserved for special occasions.
This is a wonderful place and the food is excellent. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating
Very charming restaurant. Easy parking. Extensive menu. Delicious food at food price.
Duling Kurtz is our happy place. The food is always good. The decor is relaxing to us. The prix fix menu is a great find. The wait staff is a collection of kind and lovable people.
Elegant. Attentive staff. Extremely comfortable but upscale. Will return soon.
Very delicious meal. Good wine and tasty desserts!
Mother’s Day dinner. Very overpriced.
Yours is one of our favorite restaurants, and a place where we celebrate significant events and holidays. Until Mothers Day, I had never had a bad meal at your restaurant. On Sunday, I ordered the Bronzino with baby bok choy. The bronzino was dry and the portion was meager. The bok choy was tough and impossible to cut through. However, my wife's crab cakes were very well prepared as were her accompanying vegetables. The service was very good, and our waitress was very attentive. I did not complain, because I didn't want to spoil the "vibe" of a special meal. Hopefully, this won't happen again
Very nice Mother’s Day celebration. Our waitress was very sweet and nice.
Lovely place for a special occasion. Consistently good food, attentive staff, and elegant surroundings make the Duling-Kurtz House an easy “go-to” for family celebrations.
The food was ok but not great. All the tables around us received bread but we did not. We had to ask and we were told that they ran out (this was after one table got offered a second round of bread) and additional rolls were in the oven but not sure if or when they would be done. One person in our party order Medium Well steak it came out medium rare. Server removed a plate of a person in our party was done eating. At the next table the server bent over and her butt was directly in my face. Never going back nor would I ever recommend this restaurant......way to expensive for what you get and the service was terrible.
Always a great meal and service. Some new additions to the menu also were nice to see as well as the regular items.
Celebrated my Moms 92nd birthday!
Everything was fabulous and was very special for my Mom. The piano player was a great added feature!
Always enjoy dining there!
Fabulous food in a beautiful atmosphere. One of my favorite restaurants in PA.
Birthday dinner. Waitress was awesome!
Second time in a month I was there. From appetizer to salads to entrees and dessert I would give a 5 star rating. Great wait staff as well.
One of the best (top 5 restaurants) in Delaware and Chester Counties in PA.
Five of us celebrated my sister's birthday at Duling-Kurtz. The owner went out of her way to make my sister's "birthday cake" special. The food, service, and atmosphere are exceptional!
We were given a lovely table on the porch. After a rather jarring, abrupt greeting from the host, we were warmly welcomed by our server, who was fantastic! The food was absolutely wonderful, the service was attentive but not intrusive and we had a great time.
We celebrated our29th wedding anniversary and appreciated the attention to detail and excellent service. We were seated in a green room with period furnishings. It was not overly crowded and we were able to chat and reminisce over cocktails. The meal as very good - he had duck; she had shrimp and scallops perfectly done.
We’ll be back for another special occasion.
Have been here twice on special occasions and this place always hits a homerun! Our schedule erver, Amy is simply wonderful - very warm, friendly, and accommodating. The food is excellent - a new chef started and it was even better than the last time we went. The food itself is outstanding - everyone's meal was prepared perfectly and good portions, and so much to choose from (and difficult to choose too!). We were treated to live background jazz. This place is a real gem - great food, service and ambiance all in a beautiful setting.
Lovely luncheon with friends made perfect by Duling Kurtz Staff
We had a wonderful dinner for our 30th wedding anniversary! I recommend the Oysters Rockefeller appetizer and the twin lobster tails entree if they're available. The shrimp and scallops entree was also very good. Save room for dessert - there are many great choices, including the chocolate peanut butter lava cake and apple strudel. Kudos to our server June - she did a great job!
Love Love Love this place. We go a couple times a year and they come through with great food perfectly cooked every time.
We've been there many times, and have always enjoyed it. This time our waiter was quite pleasant, but slow and forgetful. We were in a side room, so he probably didn't think to look in on us. We'll be back, for sure!
Not the DK we remember from years past. Rushed service for no reason as the restaurant was not even half full. Food was average, good but not great as we usually expect. Service disappeared after entrees arrived.
Everything was exceptional! We will definitely be back!
We decided to try Duling Kurtz after not having been there for several years. It's likely to be several years before we return. The food was average. Nothing special. Our salads were forgettable. My steak, ordered medium rare, was cooked more medium well. There are many restaurants in the area that are much better in the same price range.
Very quaint. For an inn the food was outstanding. Hope to experience the outdoor seating in the near future.
