Duling Kurtz House Ratings and Reviews

Great ambiance. Superior, friendly and attentive service. Excellent food and a wide selection of items. Whenever my wife and I want to go to a restaurant that we know will always be a special treat, we select the Duling Kurtz House. We have never been disappointed.

This is simply one of the finest places to eat in all of the Delaware Valley. My wife had three delicious appetizers while I enjoyed a remarkable mussels/lobster starter followed by a perfectly-cooked medium-rare NY strip. We shared a decadent dessert. The only glitch was a mixup twixt server and wine cellar which produced a Chablis we didn't order, then a different vintage Burgundy than what was listed, before we settled on a very nice Bordeaux.

We came here to celebrate both our daughter and her husband's birthdays. We all had great meals - 2 had Scottish salmon, special seafood pasta in white wine sauce and braised beef short ribs. Ken is a great waiter and Michael is a great bartender. A great spot with great food for special occasions.

Spectacular dining experience to celebrate our wedding anniversary! Lobster Entree was fabulous. The Tasmanian Trout appetizer was fantastic and the desserts were very tasty and beautifully prepared!
Thank you so much for another wonderful celebration and delicious food!

The food was outstanding and they accommodated us with a quiet table as we had an elderly person with us who has hearing issues. But our server was very unorganized and extremely slow. We had to ask several times for things and at one point asked the bus boy to get it. Felt like she didn't like us!

From beginning to end, a fantastic dining experience. This historic building is charming, seating in various rooms large or small accommodating large groups, small groups or couples. Our server, Cynthia, was delightful, friendly and full of knowledge about the menu and the restaurant. Difficult to make a selection, as there were so many appealing dishes. Fabulous lobster bisque, lobster tails sweeter than we had in New England this summer. Perfect location for a "date night." Felt the price was certainly reasonable for two appetizers, two entrees and two desserts for this caliber of restaurant.

Absolutely my favorite restaurant...have been here about 10 times in the past year, and never a bad meal, always good specials, and the bartender Michael? Simply the best bartender ever! He'll make you the best chocolate-espresso martini you will ever have!

Great Service and food prepared to perfection. Menu was wide and the specials sounded very good even though I eventually had the rack of lamb. The view out the window was rustic and quietly beautiful. Could not have had a better date with my bride of 46 years.

Our food was very good-esp the popovers & starters! Entrees & dessert were good also. June was our waitress & she was fabulous-really excellent at looking after us. Drinks were yummy. Service was just exemplary & very relaxing & elegant ambiance. We will make D-K House a regular experience.

The food was good. The service was just average and not nearly what I would expect of a place that charges such high prices. We also thought it extremely petty of them that I had 3 club sodas and they charged us for each. No refills. The glasses were small and they were $3 each. I doubt we'll go back for that reason alone.

We had guests in from out of town- spending the night at the Duling Kurtz & enjoy relying on The Duling Kurtz folks to provide consistently great food and service. The Colonial era building is impeccably decorated and maintained- which adds nothing but positives to the delicious food offerings. The DK is easily in the top five in fine dining options for Chester County & the prices are reasonable for the experience.

We have been dinning at Duling Kurtz for over twenty years, never had a disappointing experience. The food is very good, more traditional in presentation, popovers with lemon curd will bring you back. A respectable wine list, wait staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and very attentive to detail. Beautiful setting in a old farm house, well kept grounds enhances the experience.

We have been staying at this facility for years during the winter and at the restaurant for lunch frequently for years , the food and service are always excellent and we would recommend it! Jules R even though we have to drive 35 miles to get there

We went for a nice family dinner. The service was fantastic. The waitress' actions ensured that we had a very relaxing dinner. The food was excellent and everyone enjoyed their selections. We especially liked the making of the Caesar salad at tableside.

This is a really great place to go and have a wonderful dinner. You are not rushed, the food is delicious always and staff treat you like family. We always enjoy going and have a relaxing and
I would recommend everyone go and see for yourself and I believe you too, would be happy and a repeat diner.

Our waitress clapped her hands and practically danced everytime we made a selection. This alone would prevent us from returning. The food is the other reason. My trout , green beans and potatoes were wonderful before they were smothered in almonds and lots of melted butter. The meal was practically floating. My husband's rack of lamb was slightly overcooked and sort of meager compared to other racks we have had. Not a very good experience for $200.

Had a great time celebrating a graduation with friends and family. Delicious food, but best of all was a super-sweet waitress, Amy. She made it fun and special. She clearly loves her job and loves the restaurant. Thanks for a really fun night.

Been going to the Duling-Kurtz since it opened. The food is consistently good, with some dishes earning a "Great!" The servers are always friendly and helpful - very attentive. My wife had a special Box Tomato Salad which she said was very refreshing. I had the Harvest Salad with the Sherry Vinaigrette - awesome combination of flavors - a new favorite. I had a special Seafood Bisque which was prepared perfectly with the seafood being added so it cooked perfectly and was not rubbery. My wife's Surf 'n Turf was to her liking - who can argue with a lobstah - fresh and sweet. The filet was very flavorful and I as I got to help with the mash potatoes, they were the perfect combination of texture and flavor. I had a special Seafood Cioppino - again prepared perfectly and if you're a garlic lover as I am, you will do what I did and enjoy the broth at the end. My only complaints were having to pick the thyme stems out of the dish before eating it and not having a piece of soppy bread for the broth. Always enjoy the D-K - highly recommend it!!
They took care of my Mother the right way!!!!
I live in Idaho and as a special gift to my mother on Mothers Day I always make reservations to a place she would not herself. I make the reservation and then call the restaurant and give them my card number. This year I picked Duling Kurtz House. She arrived there and from start to finish was treated in a wonderful manner. She and her date loved the food. One of the things I was worried about was that they would be rushed in their meal. This was not the case, in fact they felt just the opposite. The waitress in which they had was bubbly and made it fun for them. I asked that they never see a check and that request was also followed. She was made to feel important and I thank you for giving her a special day.
