Great Old School SteakhouseDurant's has all the key ingredients for a good steakhouse, high quality meat, stiff drinks, and great wait staff...Durant's is an old school gem and definitely a must do if you are a fan of steakhouses…5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!I have had evening meals at Durant's numerous times during the past 12 years, as I have been in and out of Phoenix. It has been consistently outstanding in every way. Every dining experience is made to feel like a special event. It is the best of anyplace I've eaten as I have moved and traveled about the past 40 years!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOld world feeling with redOld world feeling with red flocked wallpaper and dark wood.

PAT AND JANE5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeExcellent food and ambience. Best steakhouse in town.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerWe went to Durant's for my husband's birthday. What a great dinner. The prime rib was to die for!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe host was quick to addressThe host was quick to address our concerns about our table location and without fuss moved our party of six away from the busy kitchen doors. The evening got better and better as the excellent food was served with attention to each person's particular requests. The Shrimp and Crab Louis Salad was as generous and delicious as ever, and the steaks were divine. Desserts exceeded expectations and the Strawberry Shortcake was especially notable. The whole evening was smoothly handled by our server Ron, who is our favorite! Durant's is at the top of our list for special dining and for impressing out-of-town guests with old Phoenix!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous!It's always a pleasure to dine here!! The service is fantastic and the food outstanding!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDurant's Still Great!We've been dining at Durant's since the early 1970's, and it's still just as good, if not better, than it was back then. The service was impeccable, and the food was outstanding. I had the calf's liver with onions and bacon (it's one of the specialities), and it was prepared perfectly. Our server was excellent, and when I ordered a wine by the glass, she asked if I had had the wine before. When I said "no," she gave me a taste of it to be sure it would be one I liked.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMtimeless classicDurrant's is the best steakhouse in Phoenix and a great place for any occasion.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMA very stable and consistentA very stable and consistent restaurant. It is like stepping back into the 50's and 60's. Walking in primarily thru the kitchen is always great with greeting from the kitchen staff. Nice also having park yourself or valet options. I will return soon to enjoy another fine meal.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMTraditional-Style, Meat-OrientedDurant's is conscious of its historical pedigree, in a town which mostly doesn't have much history. Red-flock wallpaper, semicircular booths, no windows, low ceiling, subdued lighting, busy at lunch time catering to local business people. Many varieties of hamburgers. A bit of sea food. Reminds me of similar-vintage restaurants in Hollywood. Friendly. Don't expect any nouvelle cuisine. In fact don't expect anything nouvelle here!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMIn a recent conversation withIn a recent conversation with my 93 year old step mother, who was born in AZ and has traveled the world, I learned had never experienced Durant's. My wife and I thought it was time. We entered, of course, through the kitchen and arrived for our 5:30 reservation. We were seated in Durant's leather tucked booth and a wonderful experience began....perfect cocktails prior to the most delicious bread served with a covering that made us ask for a second...I swear my step mom ate the entire 2nd order.....Terrific Caesar salads and an order of beef steak tomatoes, entrees of cat fish, linguine w/shell fish and a petite filet exceeded all expectations....5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMconsistantly greatI have been going here for 20 years and it is always a great experience.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA FavoriteDurants is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always delicious, no matter what we order. This time we had seafood . Even though it is a steak house, the fried shrimp were outstanding. The stone crabs were very good. They seem to be running a little small this year. Our friends had lamb chops. They said they were the best they have ever had!!! A salad or soup comes with your dinner. A side also comes with it. It's not cheap, but they don't mickle and dr you for everything. Delicious garlic loaf served and crudte. Can't wait to go back!!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGolden GemMy wife found this while we were looking for a spot to celebrate a special occasion. This place would not be a place I would pick just on a drive-by survey. However, this was one of the best meals and celebrations I could have imagined. The ambience was astonishing, taking us back 50 years to experience the type of dining they must have experienced. I would highly recommend this spot to anyone. However, don't forget your checkbook, it is certainly worth the price!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat... as usual!Durant's is a Phoenix institution. It's a classic style restaurant where you know your going to get high quality food and service every time you dine there. The do it right. And remember, always enter thru the kitchen and say hello to the staff!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHad the special which wasHad the special which was a flat iron steak salad - delicious.

Exceptional food, service and quality - but ooooh, the prices have gone through the roof on steaks! I guess that's because of the rise in beef prices. Hopefully if and when those prices come down the restaurant will adjust their pricing for the customer.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMDurants is ALWAYS very good.Durants is ALWAYS very good. Old steak house vibe, superb service.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThis steakhouse is a gem!This was our first visit to Durant's and we were very pleased with the quality of the food and service! The menu provides adequate variety without being overwhelming, and all the food we ordered was prepared to perfection! It was refreshing to find a local steakhouse where our salad, vegetables and potatoes were included in the dinner pricing! We did not request a booth for our birthday group, so our initial seating was in the middle of the very busy dining room in very close proximity to other tables and the kitchen. Upon request, they graciously moved our group to a booth which was delightful! Apparently you need to request the booth seating!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always enjoy our experienceWe always enjoy our experience at Durant's - one of our all-time Phoenix favorites.

We were seated immediately upon all of us arriving at the restaurant. Our experience was made all the more enjoyable by our server who seemed to know when we were ready to order without rushing us and allowing us to have plenty of time to enjoy each other's company. The food was wonderful with the exception of one of the medium rare steaks that had to be sent back for another few minutes on their grill. We usually get to Durant's about twice a year for special occasions and have always left feeling very satisfied. Thank you for a great night, Durant's!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAn old fashioned steak house-steakAn old fashioned steak house-steak was superb. Only draw back was it was very noisy. A couple groups near us were very loud, laughing all together very loudly and I had difficulty talking with my wife. However I would go back again because the steak was first rate-well marbled , cooked just right and very tasty. It was very expensive but worth it.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMI wish I knew his name - we'veI wish I knew his name - we've had the same waiter twice now and he is excellent - never forgets a thing and is very helpful with entree discriptions, etc.
