"this dining room is by far one of the nicest in the area, i am from lancaster county, but my suggestion would be to establish a minimum dress code here. this is not the place for "men" to be wearing hats, and t-shirts. maybe it is just the decline of society and the rush to casualize everything, but you do not make it better by lowering the bar, you improve by raising it."

"We have never been disappointed in the Hunt Room--a wonderful, diverse menu and terrific service. It's elegant, but not stiff. Our 12-year-old son chose it for his birthday dinner, and we all had a wonderful time."

"Dinner portions were significantly smaller than in past years. Vegetables were all luke warm and our steaks were nowhere near the advertised 8oz fillet as stated in menu...considerably smaller in size . Rolls were very hard and tasted stale. No longer a favorite dining choice for my family."

"We had a lovely celebratory lunch -- the selection was very good and the food tasty. We had a very leisurely brunch and were not rushed. The one suggestion I would make would be for at least one more vegetable option.
The room can be noisy when it is full, and this is a popular place for brunch. Good reputation, well deserved.

"We had the entire family home for the holidays and decided to book a Brunch reservation for the Sunday after Christmas for 6 people. The food, selection, service, ambiance and attentiveness were all outstanding. They had their signature bread pudding for dessert which was amazing as always. Great value and great special occasion. Will be back again and again!"

"There's no better value in a sumptuous Sunday Brunch than the offering of the Desmond's Hunt Room. In addition to the usual -- scrambled eggs, waffles, omelettes, French toast, bacon, sausage, oatmeal, fresh fruit, muffins and croissants -- you'll also find roast beef, turkey and a fish dish. The desserts are similarly ample, with the Desmond's legendary bread pudding always among the treats. If you've never had it, try it, with vanilla sauce. It's justifiably famous."

"The Desmond and Hunt Room are a bit dated, but the service is excellent, everyone is friendly, the food took no time at all, the crab soup was excellent, and everything else was passable."

"Great place to eat, the food is well prepared, they offer great dishes, they have a prefix section that is priced for $40.00 and you get a full meal. Staff is very friendly."

"The dinner menu was very different than the menu shown on Open Table on the very day that we dined. They say they change their menu quarterly, the current menu was not to my taste."

"Food was good but would have been better if it was hotter. One person sent it back to be heated as it was cold. Do not know if problem was kitchen or server letting it sit before serving
Not our best meal there of many.

"Hot foods carelessly AND deliberately left uncovered AND lids propped open....so food was NO LONGER HOT. My complaint was brushed off because they told me they no longer want to have a person at the hot food station to keep covering lids. This is 2nd time we had this experience at a Sunday Brunch. The carvery and omelet areas were maintained well but that is not what any of us just wanted to eat. Very disappointing."

"The Hunt Room in the Desmond Hotel has been a good choice that has become better. There is a new chef, who has improved on some already good dishes and has added his signature with several very nice additions. The mushroom soup and the house steak are standouts, while the bulk of the menu is a great choice. Leave room for a delectable bread pudding. Prices are fair and service is another plus. I have never stayed at the hotel, but if the Hunt Room is any indication, that will be a very pleasant choice too!"
