Diner Reviews
  • "I have lived in Phoenix many years but never visited Durants. My husband and I went there for our anniversary. The atmosphere was as promised but the food and service were nothing special given the extraordinary prices."

  • "My wife and I have always enjoyed the great service and food at Durants. From the moment you enter you are immediately greeted by friendly faces. The food was excellent and we spent only $130 including tip."

  • "My wife and I have been dining at Durants for over 30 years - and have never been disappointed. My had tthe chicken livers, which she often does and they have never been done better than this time. I had the rib eye (my birthday) and though I sometimes have a steak this one was done perfectly It was THE BEST rib eye I have ever had - anywhere. I often have your calves liv, which I love, ararity in the valley of the Sun. Thank you all."

  • "Old-school in the best sense of the word with no apologies, Durant's stands head and shoulders above any steakhouse in Phoenix. Jack's place certainly holds its own among top-notch steak palaces across the country, whether modern or retro. It's all authentic here, from gleaming dark wood, lush filigree wallpaper and comfortable red leather booths to soothing mood lighting, spectacular fresh floral arrangements and the best pours ever from favorite bartender Gail. Her Manhattans define the perfect cocktail! An iced relish tray is a tip-off that the expected menu standards will not falter: shrimp cocktail that's a meal unto itself, thick spears of tender asparagus, and of course juicy steaks grilled to perfection by Ernie Canez for 50+ years."

  • "My boyfriend and I have officially dubbed Durant's our favorite restaurant in Phoenix. From the consistency of their perfect steaks to the welcoming staff we always have a great time here. We have strayed before but never again because you can't get a better steak in town. If you're questioning the validity of this review, I have worked in the Food and Beverage industry for twenty years and my boyfriend is a butcher!"

  • "From the moment I arrived I felt like a VIP. The staff is very professional making sure that your every need is met. They make sure your glass is never empty regardless if you are drinking a soft drink, cocktail or one their delicious wines from the extensive list they have. The food, like always is outstanding. The humble t-bone is without a doubt one of the best in Phoenix. Durant's is a great place to go for a special occasion or to take business colleagues."

  • "Steakhouse from the 1960's. Cool interior (red leather everywhere), no windows, old fashioned outstanding service, good wine list with lots of affordable options, but as to the food: times have moved on and what was great in Phoenix in the 1960s, is just ok now to the jaded globetrotter. Oysters are good, but not great, and not flown-in-the-same-morning-tasty. Shrimp cocktail (you knew that was coming) made with shrimp that tastes like the shrimp has been frozen. Steaks are good, and well cooked, but not dry-aged or hormone free or Japanese or other fancy stuff. So it's a steak, and it's good, but not comparable to steaks in LA or NYC."

  • "Years of experience with great steaks. Try the filet steak sandwich for value. Outstanding service. However, salad really disappointing for a steakhouse. (Do the soup.) Two visits with way over baked potatoes."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "An outstanding restaurant that epitomizes the history of Phoenix, great food and service. A must do when in Phoenix. No steakhouse chain can touch this Phoenix institution!"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Three of us ordered t-bones and they were not good. They were thin and overcooked. I ordered rare and got medium and my steak was tough. The caesar salads were limp and tasted as if they had been dressed hours before. It was a disappointment as we had read good reviews of this restaurant and were looking forward to a good meal. The desserts were excellent but we will not be returning to this restaurant."

  • "Having heard so much about Durant's, I wanted to experience the restaurant for myself so I asked for a birthday gift to Durant's. What a wonderful experience it was! Our waiter was most attentive and exhibited excellent timing. The dinner was outstanding and the dinner bread was unique. I'm already hoping for another gift...maybe Christmas?"

  • "This place is an experience that baby boomers will consider a treat. It is a true classic old school steakhouse complete with red leather banquet, red flocked walls, a huge bar with an amazing selection of libations to choose from and the ambiance that makes you feel at home instantly. The service was excellent and attentive. The piece of meat I had, Top Sirloin, was marvelous. Glad we experienced this piece of Phoenix history. Only consideration is that it is rather pricey. However, when you consider the environment you are enjoying your meal in, the price is in line with all that you receive."

  • "There are not many restaurants around anymore that provide a combination of outstanding food and excellent service like Durant's. It has an old school, no nonsense menu of steak, chops and seafood with an extensive wine list that would satisfy even the most discriminating wine connoisseur. The décor is also totally old school with red velvet wall paper and red leather seating. But you don't go here for the décor. We tried their Oysters Rockefeller as an appetizer and they were scrumptious. For main course we both chose the prime rib and it was perfectly slow-cooked and tender medium rare. The only warning I would pass along is that Durant's is not inexpensive but you get what you pay for! You won't leave Durant's disappointed."

  • "Early dinner at 6 pm on a Tuesday was surprisingly busy. Summertime, early part of the week and yet quite active. That is a good sing to me. The food is always good, not that I go that often. It is just that when I go I know what to expect and never am disappointed. Our server, Dave was very accommodating, not "in your face" but available when you needed him. He recommended the Strawberry shortcake and it was the perfect finish to another great evening at Durant's"

  • "Have heard about Durant's for years but finally had dinner there this past weekend. The entrance to the restaurant is through the back door which leads through the kitchen. You are then greeted and shown to your table. Durant's has been in business since 1950. The booths, tables and decor are very comfortable. Our waiter provided a brief history of the restaurant. The food was excellent, service was attentive and our party really enjoyed our experience."

  • "Our favorite spot in Phoenix - we always know we're going to have a wonderful table, fabulous service, the best martini in town and the FOOD! This is one place you'll never say "guess I won't order that again". The prime rib is the best anywhere and fried shrimp will feed you for two days - strawberry short cake is indescribable. Mostly we love seeing the same servers over the years. Happy and friendly and welcoming - can't do enough to please."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Durant's is the "Old Stand By!" Classic and elegant with a hint of eclectic. The food is dominating and the wine is fine! Streaks are the par but have some seafood if you wish! You can't miss! Pick and choose freely! You will leave with built up stories to tell! Enjoy!"

  • "We love Durants for the vintage atmosphere. It really is like stepping into a time machine and being transported back to the 60s, in a good way. They really decorate beautifully for the Christmas season as well. Very cozy. Great food and martinis. Love how you walk in through the kitchen which is very clean and the staff always greet you as you do."

  • "I am very fortunate to be able to dine at Durant's frequently. It is one of those rare restaurants where they know how to take care of their customers from the moment they arrive until the moment they leave. The outstanding service and always exceptional food are consistent with each visit. I highly recommend Durant's to anyone who enjoys an evening of fine dining in a beautifully preserved American classic restaurant."

  • "A last minute choice for dinner, it had been many years since I had been in this place. A Saturday evening, but they accommodated us on very short notice. The place was jumping - every table and booth was taken and we grabbed the last four seats in the bar. The place was packed. This place is a throw-back - from the red velvet wall paper to the booths, you go through a time warp when you enter this place. This spot just has to be the place where deals are cut. Every town has one. This is for Phoenix. Food was outstanding, properly prepared and served efficiently. I would highly recommend this place to all steak lovers. But even if you do not like steak, the seafood selection was outstanding. Worth a drive from anywhere."

  • "Durant's is a Phoenix staple, we have never had a bad experience, until Saturday. I ordered the prime rib, medium rare with a quick sear as I have time and time again. My husband, the pork chop. Prime rib came out, no sear. The pork chop, cooked on the outside, raw on the inside. I sent my prime rib back for that quick sear to get it back with only one side seared. The rawness of the pork chop wasn't noticeable until my husband got close to the middle. Durant's did the right thing not charging for the raw pork chop but overall we were very disappointed. To make matters worse, we were quietly celebrating my husband's birthday and would have stayed for dessert and after dinner drinks but we just wanted to go home."

  • "The quality and preparation of their steaks is excellent. Our waiter took care of all our needs in a low key and professional manner. My Rob Roy was made exactly as I like it."
