My wife and I arrived at the last minute without a reservation on a gloomy Friday night and were welcomed in. Sat at the bar for 20 minutes or so, enjoying a very well made martini. A very energetic crowd of friendly regulars made for an easy wait. My wife had the duck breast which was very good, house salad... More

This restaurant is a bit of a drive from Charlottesville. But for those who want to get out of town, or who live between Charlottesville and Crozet, this is really the best dining option around. An imaginative menu, well-prepared, with good service. It can get very crowded at dinner time (and they do not take reservations). But if you're willing... More

Great vibe at this local hot spot, that has been serving customers for more than 30 years. My wife and I both ordered the salmon. Hers was cooked to perfection, mine quite the contrary. My salmon was a slightly larger piece, and obviously grilled same amount of time as my wife's, and therefore undercooked in the middle. Unfortunately, the waitress... More

The food was fabulous! The service was great! However the table was small and I felt like I was flying coach class, middle seat. Our knees were bumping each other and other tables were so close I couldn't slide back. Worse, however, was the noise. We couldn't hear each other and finally gave up trying to have a conversation. By... More

we ate at Duner's on a Friday night, while attending a business conference at the nearby Boar's Head Inn. this restaurant is highly recommended ! no reservations, and no comfortable waiting space, is the worst part of the evening. And if that is the worst, you have it pretty good. You have to enter the restaurant and find the host,... More

Went there with family members in mid-September. Excellent food. Reasonably-priced considering quality of food. Service was slow. Was somewhat noisy.

This restaurant has tables so close together it is hard to keep from hitting your neighbor with your chair. The acoustics are such that you have to speak in loud voices to hear the person sitting across the table. This isn't the atmosphere I look for in a fine dining establishment. My boyfriend ordered muscles as an appetizer and veal... More

We had Rockfish and a Ribeye. Both were excellent. Desert was a hard choice but Apple crisp won because it seemed to be a good fit for the location and time of year.

Duner's is a wonderful restaurant located west of Charlottesville. Crowded, eclectic crowd, and good fun. Staff is affable, food is terrific. No reservations accepted, but worth the wait on a busy night. One of my favorite Charlottesville restaurants. Mussels are my favorite appetizer, but fried oysters are a close second. All entrees are good, and the menu varies, but I... More

Family visit to celebrate Charlottesville wedding...nice wine selection good drinks and tasty food!!! The duck was moist and superb. The fried chicken was yummy and the steaks were tender and generous portions....also had the scallops and grits.....everyone was happy about their meals and a good time had by all. They take reservations and it is always crowded so reservations recommended.

Thank Sandy M
