Duling Kurtz House Ratings and Reviews

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.
Our dinner at Duling Kurtz was in all ways exceptional. The ambiance was warm and inviting; the service by Amy was impeccable; the food was superb. We and our guests had different selections but all were wonderful. I cannot think of a thing I would change and we will certainly return soon.

Great food. Great atmosphere - small, quaint dining space. Cozy even. Server was a little too chatty on this night.
The NY strip was amazing - seriously one of best steaks I've ever had. And I spent 4 years in Dallas hitting up some big time places.

We usually love meeting at Duling-Kurts, but we were next to a very loud group of women that made communicating with each other quite difficult. Food great, as always. Portions quite small, especially the oysters. Pricey.

We had an inexperienced waiter who made a few mistakes. Paulo took over and made our dinner amazing. I come from a restaurant background and know about service and fine dining, the staff and management at Duling Kurtz are as advertised. They make the restaurant top notch in the area. I have been around the world and I have not had a better experience anywhere. Thank you Paulo and Management!!! We will be back.
Great dinner for 7
We started with drinks at the bar and the bartender Michael did his usual excellent job even though the bar was very crowded. The owner even had chairs brought in for us from another room. When we moved to dinner we had a room all to ourselves. The service was nicely paced so that we had a lot of time to catch up with family from out of town. The meals and desserts were excellent for everyone. Will definitely be back again soon!
First of all our waiter was awesome and the hostess accommodating! Half of our entrees were good and the others were mediocre. The meat was dry but the veggies were great. The spaetzle were not traditional and used whole wheat so they were dry and a different consistency than expected.
Ron and Angela
At first glance you could feel the relaxing mood. The atmosphere was romantic yet it had a taste of luxury for a special occasion for a couple or family to gather with that homes style touch. The staff members were very polite and professional. The food was excellent and well-priced. I must admit I was surprised at so many friendly people sitting somewhat close together and communicating like old friends. My wife and I really enjoyed ourselves and the waiter we had was the best! We will visit again and again and again...
Stunningly enjoyable experience
We were actually stunned by the dining experience. Great country setting, in a elegant aged homestead setting. The food was exceptional, as was the service. The ambiance was quite enjoyable as well. Would highly recommend this ding experience to all.
Dinner Date night
My wife and I ate here last week and had a great time. The food was very good and classic, not cutting edge but you standard high end fare. The best part about the night was the overall length of our dinner. Our children were on sleepovers at friends houses so we were able to dine and talk for over 3 hours and never felt rushed or waited for our next course. Highly recommended for those looking for some one on one time with their significant other. The food was fairly expensive so I can't say we would go more than a few times per year but on those special occasions I will keep this on the list.
