We are late here by local standards (about 9) and had an excellent evening. The shrimp tempura was really excellent and th mains good but as always too large! There was a really good wine list and the helpful waiter encouraged several of the cheaper choices (always a good sign). We were slightly disappointed by the crime brûlée, but I... More

We stopped in on a Friday night and had the New York Strip and Prime Rib. The service was excellent and the ambiance was superb. Definitely recommend...make a reservation.

This is our favorite place to eat in Durango. The service is always top notch and the food is unique and beautifully presented. The Calamari appetizer and lettuce wraps are my favorite itmes. Ken and Sue's also has the best martini's in town.

I've been to Durango, CO many times yet without ever making reservations...results in many times not being able to get a seat at Ken & Sue's...the wait was worth it! Next time I'm coming to town, I will definitely be planning ahead. There are many good food choices in a small area; however, Ken & Sue's is now my local... More

While visiting Durango, I met a local friend for a drink. We went to a place one of her friends really likes. We sat at the bar, and were treated to the most amazing Manhattan I've ever had. YUM!

Because it was highly recommended on TripAdvisor, we went there following a long October day on the railroad (one of us) and at Mesa Verde (the other). Even without reservations, and while being extremely busy, we were quickly seated outdoors under a very comforting heater – the weather was mountain chilly. Service was prompt and efficient throughout. The drinks were... More

Ate here in December 2016 with a work colleague. they try to be accommodating to gluten free, and I had a very stir fry without sauce that was actually excellent without the sauce. Wine was wonderful and atmosphere good. Wait staff very attentive.

I now make sure every trip to Durango includes a visit to Ken & Sue's. I was raised in a restaurant family, and don't go easy on these places, but K&S has never disappointed. Are you looking for fine dining, a great wine list and the best staff in Southern Colorado? Ken & Sue's on Main Street is the place... More

Had a reservation for Christmas Eve out in one of the heated tents. The atmosphere was nice and it was warn enough. The food was excellent. Especially the lobster mashed potatoes. Would definitely eat again next time I'm in Durango
