The Hunter's Inn opened its doors in the heart of Potomac Village in 1977. An Instant success, local papers named Hunter's "The best place to meet", "The best place to make a deal" and "The most romantic restaurant". Washingtonian Magazine described the burger as one of Washington's best. The Hunter's Inn has been reborn through the efforts of Washington natives Fred and Murray Berman. The two brothers combined have more than 50 years of restaurant experience. Since they've taken control over the restaurant's operations, immediate improvements have been made to the quality of food and service. Concentrating on fresh fish, quality meats and innovative menu selections as well as large entree salads, pasta, ribs, and chops. To compliment the menu, Fred and Murray have expanded and enhanced the wine list, making it one the most extensive in the Potomac area. Hunter's Inn is considered the "Cheers of Potomac".

We were so pleased, we had four couples and everyone loved the food and the service!
The drinks were prepared as ordered and with an ample pour. The raw oysters were perfect tender and not briny, the hamburger was delicious, the soft shell crabs great, fried chicken terrific and steak frites was very good. We had blueberry pie and chocolate brownie sundae for dessert and it was all delicious! A very good time was had by all.

Hunter's Bar and Grill is a excellent local restaurant. It draws a crowd of local diners for a good reason. The food is very good and the service is also good. The last time I was there, it appeared they were a bit short-handed but that's a sign of the pandemic times.

Coziest restaurant in Montgomery County. It's the Cheers type atmosphere. Always a great place to visit after a round of Golf at the local clubs or a nice place to relax after work, shopping, etc. Golf is always playing on the televisions above the bar and you can always count on someone to talk to you about the latest tournament. I am boring, I always get my 2 favorite dishes: the cobb salad or a great big burger. Both are excellent, well priced too. And, of course a nice wine list to match! Half price burgers on Saturday makes it a treat for the entire family. The owners are there all the time too, just in case you have a question or want some good, fun conversation. It's my favorite restaurant in the entire area.

We had not been at Hunter's for dinner previously--only for lunch a few times. It is such a great neighborhood place. The kitchen was a little slow getting food out on some things on the Saturday night we went, but the food was good for all five of us. The menu has a wide variety of choices--almost like a New Jersey diner--and that was good because all five of us have a wide variety of tastes. Overall, we had a wonderful time and hope to go back again soon.

Great early lunch with a friend before going to the Glenstone Museum. I ordered the fried eggplant with tomato sauce, avocado, crab meat and Hollandaise. I order the Hollandaise on the side and it was just ok - I would skip it. Instead, add another fried piece of eggplant. Hey, eggplant is cheap and one piece was a little skimpy. But it tasted yummy. Good service at the outdoor tables just off the parking lot, nice homey and comfortable place!
