Came here like two times before this to come get a bite but looks like it's going downhill (already was when we came) . Really horrible management and customer service. More than likely will not be returning. Do not recommend, don't waste your time here.

Worst restaurant experience in Durango- We walked in on a Friday during Snowdown around 8. Place was less than half full. We were seated, then apparently forgotten about. We watched the servers argue over tables, all the while more people coming in and slowly being seated. We watched them take drink orders of tables seated after us...while we're still parched...So...

Sporting News Grill chose not to renew their lease at this location. Its now called the Westside Grill and is managed locally. Food was good and staff was friendly- fun place.

Went to get dinner and it was our first time eating here. I thought it was nice they have many tvs for everyone to watch their own thing news or sports or anything pretty much! It's nice that they have a buffet in the morning for breakfast or order from their menu. Lunch has a menu too and a salad... More

We stayed at the hotel and had a wonderful breakfast. I had the buffet and it was good, but my wife had the meat eaters skillet. Wow, it was so big she couldn't eat it all! The service as good and the atmosphere good.

Some hits and some misses with our dinner experience here last Saturday night. My husband, my 9 year old daughter and I were promptly greeted and offered a booth and a kids menu. My husband ordered the steak salad, which turned out perfectly. I ordered the Monterrey Chicken with a side of mashed potatoes and a cesar salad. They got... More

We got to breakfast at about 8 am, we thought about ordering from the menu and could have, but after seeing the spread on the buffet, we chose that. Perfect scrambled eggs and cooked bacon, biscuits and gravy, tons of fruit too !

We had breakfast here this morning. The wait staff was super friendly and very attentive. All the breakfasts we had in our group was very good. Large plates of food for the hungry appetites. We were all full and happy when we left. We would recommend.

I have stayed at the Holiday Inn and Suites over 135 times this past year. The hotel restaurant is completely going down hill. They recently got rid of the best thing they had going for them, their bartender Haley. The food is worse then ever and now service sucks to match the food. I enjoy the hotel very much but... More
