Being from Texas my husband and I were looking for a restaurant to get a delicious steak dinner. After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor we chose Durant's. Entering through the kitchen was a bit odd. Some call that quirky. The staff was very friendly. The...More

Great experience from the moment you enter though the back door and walk through the kitchen and the staff greeting you with welcome and hello! It is like you go back in time. The restaurant decor is right out of the 50’s. It is pricey...More

Once again I had a great meal at Durant's! Beautiful prime rib with great sides. Full service with a little "I've been doing this for 30 years attitude!" Our waiter was very nice, and professional! Great martinis!

Fantastic place to have dinner. Food was outstanding and service top notch. This is an old school steakhouse with big leather booths, tuxedo wear wait staff. Our table had the Stone crab claws to start, then Ceases salad. Next was Durants Delmonico, and Chicken picatti....More

My daughter and I went there to celebrate her move from Phoenix. We split a ribeye and it was delicious! The scalloped potatoes were great. The wait staff were attentive and helpful. The ambiance was old school and classy.
