Just had your seafood cake and steak at Taste of Durango. It was incredible! I can't wait to sit down and eat at your restaurant.

The meal and service were superb. Far exceeded expectations. We will be back. The variety of dishes on the menu has expanded. The wine list is excellent.

Great steaks, reasonable prices, nice sides. Birthday cake came with fireworks and lots of laughs. The steak was charbroiled and cooked to perfection. The atmosphere is truly western and was perfect for the outdoor forester who loved the toothed saws that constituted art on the wall.

We drove by the Ore House when we arrived in Durango. We had no idea that inside was a fabulous and very nice steak house. We made reservations, it was very busy, and shared the special of the night.

Had the wedge salad, 10 oz. ($42 filet, sautéed mushrooms ($8), an Argentinean Malbec ($11 p/glass) and split the melted caramel with pecans cake with ice cream. All were very good. Made reservation via Trip Advisor and were warmly welcomed and seated quickly. Service wasn't over done, just right. Ore House is fairly expensive, but it is in the tourist... More

I feared that making a reservation at a 'higher end' restaurant would be a waste with three kids. Boy, was I wrong. The kids menu is good, specifically the 'Kid Poison' drink which my kids are still talking about. And for the adults, excellent food. Excellent steak, fantastic scallops. The cornbread with bacon butter is a nice touch. A really... More

My husband and I were passing through Durango and we wanted a nice place to sit down and eat. First time we ate here because we do not live there. I had the chicken cordon bleu with a baked potato and my husband had the steak and fries. We truly enjoyed the taste of the food. It was very good,... More
