Food and service was excellent.
My husband and I tried 2 of their specialty cocktails but didn’t care for either of them. Other than that everything was excellent.

Ordered the Quiche, which I have had in the past and always enjoyed it. This time, although it had a very good taste, it definitely should have been cooked longer because it was not completely set. Surprised me because I have always been more than happy with my lunch.

Very nice experience before concert at the Avalon. Calamari was very very salty. Wine pours are small. Place is pricey but that’s a known factor.

We love Hunters’ Tavern! It just happens that the meal I ordered, Creamed Chipped Beef, was extremely salty and I know the beef is salty, but this went well beyond the saltiness of the beef. There was also a lot of cheese on the dish which I normally don’t expect with this dish. I did not care for it at all. I should have gone with my first thought and had the Cream of Crab soup and the Ahi Tuna, both of which are always delicious. Also, our waitress seemed in a rush to hurry us through. She was a bit abrupt. Not usually the case there. Truth be told we usually eat in the bar but ate in the restaurant this time. So absolutely go to Hunter’s Tavern! Just don’t order the Creamed Chipped Beef! 😊

Buss boys never said a word to my wife and I, a simple hello would have been nice. Waitress was friendly enough but even after we told her that we were on the keto diet, she still brought us bread! Not as attentive as she could have been. The hostess never smiled and barely acknowledged us, looked miserable! Food was ok, I had fried oysters that seemed to be 85% breading! This team could have benefited from a customer service lesson from the hotel front desk person, she was fantastic!!

Excellent food, both familiar and innovative dishes, with an Eastern Shore accent. You can't get snapping turtle soup many places west of the Bay Bridge. Warm wood-paneled ambience in the historic Tidewater Inn and attentive service make it a complete dining experience..

Food ingredients were good but lacked flavor. Service was terrible. Waited 40 minutes for a glass of wine and even though we left 90 minutes to eat before a show, we didn’t have time to finish our food because it arrived just before we had to leave. Server disappeared for half hour at a time.

Every Hunter's Tavern visit has been a memorable treat. Truly there's nowhere on the Eastern Shore to surpass it. This time the oyster stew, snapper soup, and beef carpaccio were especially outstanding, and I've got a case of the sublime Argentinian El Libertador '14 Malbec at the top of my shopping list for the next time through the wine store.

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.
