Hunter's Bar and Grill Ratings and Reviews
I like the atmosphere and helpful staff. The lunch specials are often delicious and wish I could try more than one. They do a nice job serving fresh quality food and generous portions. While dinners are very good - my favorite is the lunch menu. Excellent choices. I can't wait to return again for weekday lunch. Great atmosphere.
My recent dinner experience at Hunter's Inn was disappointing. My husband and I sat in a booth facing our friends. At the booth behind us, the waiter spilled a Martini, which shattered and spilled all over the back of the booth and on my friend's silk jacket, hair and face. While the waiter gave a quick apology, no effort was made to ensure that my friend was OK, or to compensate her for the cleaning bill until she asked. Also, the restaurant failed to take anything off the check or to offer us a coupon as an incentive to return. I will not be returning anytime soon.
What does a restaurant do when one of its regulars at the bar has a few too many and starts talking so loud to no one in particular that guests 30 feet away have to speak in raised voices to each other just to be heard? Apparently nothing! They let him drink until he is done, even though no one sitting near him remains; when he left, he couldn't walk straight. They need to do a better job. Of course, at a bar people drink, and often they get somewhat louder, but when it goes to extreme excess at a place where the patrons like to engage in real conversation as much as just watch TV sports, it just doesn't work. I usually like Hunters because of its ambiance, but if this happens again and again, I won't be back. Surely, there must be a way.
The service at Hunter's Inn was really good. The waiters were really friendly and cordial. They were quick to strike up conversation with us and keep it going as well. They were always around as well, asking if we needed anything and it was not just one person that asked, multiple waiters were always around our table. We had the chicken marsala with pasta and fries. It was pretty good and food was very fresh. The scene was not very diverse though, with everyone there (and I mean everyone) being white except for us. It felt kind of weird but I'm not from there so that might have been the norm. The courteous staff made everything feel homey though so not much to complain about. I'd go back if I were ever in the area again.
Brunch was good, but too expensive @ $34.00. At that price and quality of food the mimosas should be included. I did not know I was being charged for the mimosas until the bill came. They are $10.00. Breakfast part of Buffett excellent. The rest was fair in quality. Will not come back for brunch, maybe lunch.
My husband and I have been meaning to try Hunter's Inn ever since we first passed it on the road. It sounded like a nice, standard American fare restaurant. We were, however, disappointed with our meal there. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't anything to get excited about or, even, to give us a reason to want to come back. I just think there are too many good restaurants in the DC Metro area to return to one that is just okay.
I dine with family and friends often at Hunter's Inn, and am always very pleased, both for lunch, brunch and dinner. While this most recent experience had one problem, it actually reinforced the excellence of the staff. There was a very loud, obnoxious group of 4 people at another table who were disturbing everyone else in the dining room, including my group of friends. We asked the owner to help us, and he made sure in a low-key way to get the people to quiet down.
Nice to discover there still are a few traditional restaurants among all the trendy and ethnic spots. Hunter's Inn was a pleasant surprise for a recent Sunday lunch. A large menu with plenty of tempting choices. Our group found all our selections to be excellent: a superbly done crab cake sandwich, BBQ sandwich, chili, with delicious onion straws to start. Desserts likewise all delicious -- and generous. Service was attentive, the place attractive, and conversation easy. A great find!
While the food was good although over priced and the service started out great, but when our server went home the replacement ignored us unless we hailed him, and so-so wine was overpriced, the dining experience was not bad. Would we return? No. Finally, the restrooms were a mess and were out of both toilet paper and hand towels.
The Hunters Inn was a pleasant surprise of bar mixed with moderately elegant restaurant. Didn't know what to expect but pleasantly found the menu to include average priced burgers and such, but also included entrees for special occasions. The filet was absolutely delicious! I recommend this for anyone looking for a nice bite on a Tuesday night or a special date night.
The Hunter is has family feel from long ago. We did order appetizers, the crab cocktail and the caprese salad, both good but ordinary. Since it was Valentines Day, they had some specials but nothing again nothing out of the ordinary. We ordered the Sea bass which was just ordinary and the portion rather small for the price. The server was very pleasant and they accommodated a few dietary needs. In conclusion the food was over priced for just ordinary food.
We went for Valentines Day. The food came out quickly. We had ribs and chicken Marsala. I've had better but I've certainly had worse. Unfortunately, the service was terrible once served. The waiter didn't check on us and made a big mistake on the bill. We've been many times and had great experiences so I hope this was just a fluke.
As always, Hunters Inn is a wonderful spot to enjoy a meal with friends and family. From the first time we stopped in we were made to feel as though we'd been coming there for years. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and a bit playful while simultaneously providing excellent service. The weekly specials - from half price burgers to half price bottles of wine can also make Hunters Inn a real bargain.
Every year my husband and I take our grandson to buy our Christmas tree and then go to dinner at Hunter's Inn, It's very special to us and next year our granddaughter will be old enough to join us. It's our yearly tradition. We also enjoy there food during the year. Thank you for making it a fun memory.
Hunter's Inn used to be a reliable source of decent food and drink. My recent experience was anything but that. While the dining room and service were both quite nice, the quality of the food was very disappointing. My table had a number of different entree and side options. Sadly none were tasty and the beef options were charred to the point of being inedible. The baked potato was the size of a golf ball and had clearly been sitting around for a long time as the contents were mealy and separated from the skin. Another member of my party had sliders that were similarly skimpy in size and cooked dry. Although it's a great location, I cannot recommend Hunter's Inn for anything more than a cocktail.
