Great food & service. A little noisy. I had the beef tenderloin and my husband had the trout. Both were excellent. Desserts are worth the trip!

We live in the area and have always loved eating at Duner's. Bob has done a great job of bringing in good chefs and providing excellent quality food prepared in imaginative ways. Excellent wine list, with the house wine a dependable and affordable option. Love getting a salad with the entree and the fresh, warm bread is always appreciated and... More

We tried Duner's on the recommendation of a local. We spend several weekends a year in Charlottesville, as our daughter goes to UVA. We all agreed this was the best meal we have had in Charlottesville, a town that has many great restaurants. From the outside, one would not expect the gourmet menu and level of service. Be sure to... More

On the outside, Duner's is unassuming, next to a busy highway. We took a chance, saw lots of cars in the parking lot, and were pleasantly surprised. Service was excellent, menu actually not kid-friendly, but gourmet. A little pricy, but for special occasions just right. We enjoyed it and will be back, defenitely.

Recommended by our innkeepers, we'd have never known this tasty little place existed only two miles from our b&b. With the students, Charlottesville can get busy on weekend nights, but this little restaurant tucked six miles west of town was perfect for the casual dinner after visiting wineries we were hoping for.

We were traveling to Richmond for a family reunion and stopped along the way to visit Charlottesville and the UVA campus. It was early evening and we were hungry, so we scanned TripAdvisor for a good place to eat that was "casual". Duner's rated high, so we tried it. The service was outstanding and the food gourmet quality. The only... More

You probably have to know about this place before you roll into town because it is off the beaten path (about 5 miles outside Charlottesville). I guess you would call the atmosphere casual and it has a comfortable, lived-in element to it. There are no reservations but the hostess (who has been there for decades) is charming and you can...

The restaurant in near the Foxfield Inn and a nice casual atmosphere. We sat in the side room where it was quieter. The waitress gave us great service and was friendly. We had a delicious flank steak and liver dinner and were satisfied with everything about the meal. The price was good too
