Though primarily a bar, Dunlays serves some sophisticated contemporary American entrees.
The daily specials are for liquor, not food. But the drink promotions don't detract from the effort clearly being made in the kitchen. The eclectic menu has many good, if standard, selections—chunky homemade guacamole; pepper-crusted sashimi of ahi tuna; entree-size salads, sandwiches, and pizzas—while several more sophisticated dishes elevate the place above a run-of-the-mill casual American eatery: pork tenderloin cured in maple syrup and glazed with a raspberry barbecue sauce; grilled Idaho ruby red trout prepared Asian style with a garlic, ginger, and soy glaze. The limited wine list is predominantly American, full of low-end and reasonably priced selections. Dunlay's rendition of key lime pie may be one of the best north of the Keys. The service goes beyond attentive, giving the sense that you're a sincerely welcome guest.
