A very special local gem. Food is outstanding, service is attentive and atmosphere is lively and fun. Don't hesitate to add Duner's to your list of great C'ville restaurants. It is on the top of our list.

Every time we go to Duner's I wonder why we don't come here at least once a week. The menu is constantly changing and the food is always interesting, beautifully prepared and delicious. We have been coming here for many years and I can honestly...More
