Goof food, menus, and drinks. Handled a party of 9 with no problem and all served at the same time. Most dishes were great, some of our party were not enthused about the vegiterian plate. Recommended.

Consistently the best restaurant in town. The ambiance is from the 1950's but that's not why we go there. Great service from knowledgeable wait staff.

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.

I did not see any young children (2-6) there, but call ahead and ask. The issue is do you want to wait with a young cranky child if they are child friendly. I did see teens and that would be fine. I sure that younger... More
