I take my Husband to Ken and sues every year for his birthday and we will generally eat there for most special occasions. We love that the food is generally the same and the service is always phenomenal! We especially love their martinis they are the best in town.

We'd been to Durango several times and, while we normally frequent brewpubs, we wanted something a little nicer for our 44th anniversary. On the recommendation of Heather, our hostess earlier in the day on the Durango Silverton train ride, we decided to try Ken & Sue's. We had steak and salmon dishes and both were very good. The staff very friendly and timely and were were given a very nice commemorative photo of the two of us to mark the occasion. We will return to Ken & Sue's on our next visit to Durango.

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!

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.
