I enjoy coming to Red Snapper for dinner. I go for special occasions. The prime rib is one of my favorites. Crab legs and salmon are also great! Not that hungry get their salad bar all veggies are fresh. Just don't forget a shrimp cocktail....More

My wife asked a pasta with shrimp, which was very nice, and I asked for the diablo steak, which was tasty and soft. The waiter was very kind.The restaurant was hosting lots of seniors, which in general like good restaurants. Good choice in town.

A great atmosphere and great service. I had the pork chop...wow! My wife had the sea scallops! We had a super experience. We will return next time we visit Durango. Wish it had been there when I lived there in mid 70's!

With an aquarium in the entry, and other tanks arrayed through the restaurant, Red Snapper announces its specialty from the get-go. Other things are on the menu, but, seriously -- why order anything but seafood at a place named after a fish? Daily specials and...More

Well, I was pretty disappointed. The service was good, but the best part of this meal was the wine and the company. For being a long time restaurant in Durango, the Snapper has lost it's place in the high end dining arena. We had a...More
