I would recommend the restaurant to a younger person. It’s no place if you want to catchup and talk. Really loud. Food was fine, place looks great.

Thank you for dining at Hunters’ Tavern. We are glad you enjoyed the cuisine and ambience. While we do what we can to control the noise level, Hunters’ Tavern can get very busy during the weekends. You might prefer to dine with us during the week when we are less crowded, and therefore, more quiet. We are glad you had an overall positive experience, and we hope to welcome you back again soon.

My husband and I dined here for my birthday celebration. It was a Monday evening so not very busy. Our server was excellent, very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. My husband ordered the duck entree and I had the pork schnitzel. Both were very good. We would definitely dine here again.

So loud we could hardly hold a conversation without yelling. After being seated for 10 minutes we had to go to the receptionist to remind her we needed a waitress. She finally showed and after serving drinks disappeared for another 20 minutes. We placed our orders which arrived quickly - the entree within 2 minutes of serving the salads. At the end of the meal she asked if we wanted her to plate our leftovers. Two of us said yes. She put the paella together with the short ribs in a single box - what a mess! On leaving we noticed the taproom was much quieter and seemed to have more attentive service. Would try that if I ever go back.

Great night outside with friends. The only minor complaint....one of our guests has a serious soy allergy and specifically told the waitress 3 times not to put the dressing on her salad. Her salad arrived with the soy dressing on it and we had to send it back and wait while it was replaced without dressing. Otherwise we had a great time by the fireplace. Will definitely go back.

We frequent Hunter's Tavern and have a wonderful time. This was our first experience in the restaurant and the food was terrible. The Halibut was overdone and dry, the Duck was drenched in a Cherry Sauce to the point where the Duck was invisible. A wedding that was also there might have been a cause, but still unacceptable.

Waited for 30 minutes before a waitress acknowledged we were there. Eventually received food that was good. Restaurant manager was very good in responding. She comped the bottle of wine. Most likely unusual event. Will return again soon to see if any improvement.

Atmosphere is very nice. The food had excellent flavor, and we enjoyed everything but the calamari which was very salty. We had crab dip, calamari, chicken and waffle, ahi tuna, pork chop, and the petit filet. All were excellent, nicely plated, and perfect portion sizes. The food wasn't hot, but the plates they were served on were. We provided this feedback to our waitress and look forward to our next visit.

Two of us had a lovely meal near the window. My mom had the soft crab special and I had blackened rock fish both of which were delicious Service was attentive, but not intrusive.
My one suggestion is that having dined there several times, the acoustics are challenging. Granted I’m dining with my 85 yo mother Before and after hearing aids, crowded and not , there is a lot of ambient noise. I think they would do well to add carpet or other “soft “ fixtures.
Otherwise we Love Hunters Tavern and the Tidewater!! We are always greeted enthusiastically and warmly.

The fried green tomatoes were amazing but much too large for an appetizer. I couldn't finish those and an entree (wonderful crab cake) so I had to leave some tomatoes. If there had been a small fridge in the hotel room, I could have saved them. Too bad!

It's a bit of a trek from down by Princess Anne but twice now in the past six months I've had the pleasure of eating at Hunter's Tavern. There's nothing I can think to say but praise. The people are friendly and their tableside presence is the perfect mix of attention and discretion. The food is simply outstanding. Nobody who considers Maryland to be home should miss the snapping turtle soup, which is as much an icon of our state as crabs and fine Maryland Rye whiskey. The paella was a masterpiece as well, and my wife's meal still has her talking about it too. Thank you and we WILL be back!

We elected to dine outside at Hunter's Tavern and loved the ambience. For dinner we had the baked crab cake and the Petite Filet Mignon with Bearnaise sauce, both of which were off the charts wonderful. I'm very difficult to please with both and must say neither could, IMHO be better prepared or tastier. Wait staff were very efficient and pleasant. Prices were on the high, but reasonable side and well worth the experience as a whole. The hotel is absolutely beautiful.
