Although the menu is a little light on vegetarian options, there's a decent variety of dishes so everyone should be able to find something good. The food is good and the service is excellent.

I've shopped in the neighborhood many times and often wondered what this restaurant was like. Tried it on Saturday, when they had their half-priced hamburger special. The Hunter's Burger was very good; nice big chunk of tasty beef. It usually comes with a side of French fries but I chose a side of salad instead. Nice ambience, too. Didn't care... More

Best bet here is the lounge area. Good solid food (especially the burgers) and splendid service. We were brought here by friends and came back on our own. The clientele ranges from posh to slackers. A real treat!

We went for lunch/brunch this past weekend. The service was great. The spinach & chèvre omelette was amazing. Can't wait to try the burgers next time.

We've been going here for their half-price burger specials on Saturday since my daughter went to school nearby starting about 10 years ago. The burgers are really great, but they are normally way too expensive. However, their half-price special makes them worth the trip (on Saturday afternoons). We've gone with family and friends and everyone goes back.

We came for a relaxed dinner after a hectic day, got attentive service at 7:30 pm. Good comfort food, spaghetti w/meatballs, trout w/basmati rice. Not gourmet cuisine but a quiet, comforting dinner. Delicious raisin bread w/meal. Huge varied menu and good value specials. Will return! It was not noisy on a Thursday night.

Service was good. Food is plain and ok...but nothing spectacular. At times it can be very noisy. Nothing seems to be new in this restaurant. It is always predictable and a tad pricey.

I've eaten at Hunter's before. Their half price hamburgers on Saturday are very nice. This time I went there with three other family members for "Mexican Night." I ordered a chicken fajita. What a disappointment! We've all had great fajitas in Mexican Restaurants, and I certainly expected something similar for "Mexican Night" if you please? What arrived was a plate... More

The food here has never been disappointing. The staff seems to have been working here for quite a while. It has a "local pub/bar/restaurant" feel. We always go here when family comes from California. My elderly Mother-in-law lives close by and it is easy for her to get to and there are no stairs. Ask for one of the private... More

Honestly, if you want a 'real drink' this is the place to go in Potomac. I like to call Hunters "Home of the 10 ounce martini". Enough said. The food is hit or miss, really good burgers (I'm a burger snob) and pasta dishes. The rest is mostly standard level restaurant food, which is not to say that it isn't... More
