About Hunter's Bar and Grill
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".

Hunter's Bar and Grill Ratings and Reviews
Reservation not needed, restaurant half empty at 6 PM. Thanksgiving dinner. Not what we expected based upon past visits. Ran out of multiple menu items, dark meat turkey and stuffing. Owner reduced bill by $2 per person as compensation. String beans almost raw. Supermarket quality pumpkin pie and cold dinner rolls. Wait staff rolled empty tables past our booth. Pleasant wait staff. Probably will not return.
Food was average at best. The fried Calamari had a bad aftertaste as if the oil wasn't fresh and the steak frites was more of an over seasoned steak marsala w/ soggy fries. The Caesar dressing was fine but the chicken was dry. Service was good.
This friendly bar and cozy (fire place burning) dining room are a classic in Potomac, MD ! The food is really outstanding and changes regularly, and no matter whether it is a bowl of chili in the bar or a piece of halibut in the dining room you will not go home hungry. The best item on the menu is the Hunter's Tenderloin with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus . The sauce on this will get you hooked! The classic cocktails are even worth the trip out River Road ! Now you know why we drive from Laytonsville to enjoy the fine folks that run Hunters!
this classic location for relaxed country style cooking for foodies has a varied menu with elegantly prepared specialties among the steak and seafood standards. one of my special treats, the short ribs in wine sauce, keeps me going back and asking if it is on the menu. ordinarily the dish is available for sunday dinner only, and then, only sometimes. this christmas eve they announced its availability ahead of time and i immediately booked my reservation. it has never disappointed before, and with the down home comfort veggie accompaniment of garlic mashed potatoes, peas and carrots, it took me back to my childhood, and left not a single neuron disappointed. the presentation was outstanding, the flavors intense and subtle. my companions bronzino was bone sucking good as well, and their tuna tartare appetizer was a tower of deliciosity with layers of mango salsa and guacamole supporting the flavor filled fish. i stuck with shrimp cocktail, which was generously sized and tasty. the desserts we chose were the blueberry pie and the molten lava cake. yummmm. the staff were very accommodating and welcoming to boot.
we go often and love it !!! This was the worst service ever. It was a Sunday and I'm sure only one waiter . The poor guy was sweating and was way to busy. The server didn't hear us ask for a doggie bag for a filet .. But re make one to go .. I did tip well also because it want his fault
I recently returned to Hunters Bar and Grill and found the place about the same. It was a rainy Sunday night and rather quiet. Reception was just OK and wait service was OK. Nobody was particularly friendly or interested that my friend and I had chosen to eat dinner there. Food was good except for the Hunter's salad that was a real disappointment. It was a plate of old lettuce, brownish in color and appeared that it was thrown together much earlier in the day. I was shocked that a restaurant like this would serve a plate like the one I had. Salmon dish was good as well as the scallops.
This was our third time we ate at Hunter's Bar and Grill. First of all the service was excellent. We had two children with us and the servers were very attentive to our needs. We had a variety of dishes and they were all quite good. We like the quiet atmoshere and the overall ambiance and will be back.
Husband and I were out this way to check out a house. It's been a couple of years since I'd last eaten here and it's the same, only the décor is showing its wear; booth starting to tear, lighting and other surfaces dusty. The menu options are boring but perhaps given the lack of competition, Hunter's feels no need to up their game. If 2 21/2 stars had been an option, it's what I'd have given. The house was nice but there's no way I want to drive 30 minutes to have dinner, as we'd quickly tire of the 2 restaurants in Potomac Village (Hunter's being one).
Started out with happy hour, which is everyday of the week, and transitioned to dinner afterwards. Happy hour has reasonable drink specials, which we took advantage of. A good draft beer selection. The dining room has a nice ambiance and a large menu selection to choose from. We had the chicken parmagian and roasted half chicken. Both were excellent. Ready to visit again. Thanks
Recently, I had the opportunity to dine at Hunter's Inn and like my past dining experience, it was well worth the drive from Bethesda, MD to Potomac, MD where Hunter Inn is located. We had made reservations (and on a Saturday night, it is highly recommended) and was shown to a booth that more than adequately served our party.
We were immediately greeted by our waiter how made us feel welcome and provided us with ample time to choose drinks and food. We never felt rushed and our food was delicious.
I do recommend Hunter Inn for both the casual dinner or for a special treat.
Other reviewers suggesting this restaurant is over-priced must either be from places with much lower cost of living, or not go out for meals often.
The food was very good, very fresh and the prices were very reasonable. We ordered oysters, scallops, shrimp cocktail, salads and key lime pie and were very happy with the food and bill.
3 stars for service only because one diner in our party did not receive a salad she ordered. The waiter apologized and adjusted the bill without any fuss.
We will definitely go back to this restaurant again.
Wonderful, thick, juicy, half-pound burgers, especially the portobello burger with mozzarella. Pretzel rolls are delicious. Burgers come with fries for $15, half price on Saturdays at lunch. Fruit or asparagus can be substituted for the fries for a small charge. Draft beers also are half price at lunchtime on Saturday.
