Cozy restaurant with warm lighting. Crowded but not noisy. Martini's are strong and filled to the brim. Excellent Scallops. Very nice wait staff, always being checked on. Will definitely come back next time in the area!

This is my favorite restaurant in town. Great food and their servers are excellent. Prices are moderate and if you have a coupon that's a bonus!

Pound for pound the best value restaurant in Durango. The food is always great, the service is wonderful and the meals are priced right...from a burger to the special. We love Ken&Sue’s as our Go-To.

We love visiting Ken & Sue's when we're in Durango. The food, drinks and service are beyond compare, as is their willingness to accommodate special requests (within reason). Definitely make a reservation in advance.

Good food although a few meals were a tad bit over cooked. Gluten free meal did NOT make the Celiac in our group sick and the staff was very nice about the precautions. With celebrations they also take a picture of your group and print it off for you. We had a great time.

We had a nice time at the restaurant during a reunion with our kids that we have not seen in quite a while. Food and service was very good. My only disappointment is the change to the cilantro halibut versus the nut crusted halibut of the past however the grouper was an adequate substitution. Thanks for all that you do to provide for a memorable night out.

Used to be my favorite place, not anymore. Steak was undercooked sent it back brought the same piece back now overcooked. Portion size seemed small compared to previous visits. My wife and our friend both had the salmon, both also undercooked. Drinks were week for $10 couldn't taste any alcohol. Waitress was nothing special. We were talking this place up to our friend and it turned out to be a bust.

I attended Ken and sues with 3 friends for my 16th birthday. The four of us had a blast. The seating was perfect for us. The waitresses were so kind and considerate. The bill was under what was expected and it was very comfortable to dress up or down. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to have a good conversation with some friends or just a night out.

I've done business in Durango for years and have never tried your restaurant until now. It was recommended by a local client. Very pleasantly surprised. Love the diverse menu. The waitress had a great personality and was totally on top of it the entire time. Quiet enough to allow you to have a conversation.

Had a lovely lunch with my friend today. She had the Caesar and I the SW Chicken Cobb. They were exquisite as always. Made a special request for a private table with excellent service, the table was not private but pleasant and the service was on par. Always a great place to meet for business or pleasure, you can't go wrong with Ken and Sues!

Ken and Sue's has been a neighborhood staple for a long time. Their food is always fresh and always yummy. The drinks are diverse. Their service is great. I've been a fan since the beginning. Where other long time local places have changed up and seem to no longer meet the bar of excellence, Ken and Sue's continues their tradition of a well crafted commitment to community and fantastic foodie experience without pretentiousness.

As always it was great except we had the special which was prime rib. The sauce the poured all over it was disappointing. It was supposed to be au juice and it had some thickness and red color. Not good and took away from the taste of meat. Just put in on the side and ket folks dip. Did not like the sauce at all and if we had it on the side we could have decided to use it or not. Really made the dinner not so good. Disappointing for Ken and Sues. We go there all the time. Please pass on to them. Just put the sauce on the side instead of pouring it all over the meat very heavy.
