    As usual an outstanding meal. We’ve dined here several times when it was Ken & Sue’s and happy to say the food and level of service was not affected by the new ownership. The seasonal menus are always a treat. Highly recommend.

    We have loved Ken & Sue's since we moved to Durango in 2006. By far our favorite restaurant. The new owner and name of 636 is still great. The menu has changed slightly, the prices have increased, but still very reasonable for the style, class & quality of the meals. Great service form Maddie, met the new owner, she was very personable and fun. Still our favorite restaurant.

    Loved this place. The only thing I would change is the size of their salads. They are HUGE!!!! It is such a waste because no one could eat the whole thing. The menu could state that it is "for the table".

    The staff were incredibly accommodating from the moment we arrived. Jeri,our waitress, was excellent and personable. We both ordered the pistachio-crusted grouper, with wonderful accompaniments (sautéed spinach and whipped sweet potatoes) were tops. Totally enjoyable ambience made this a special anniversary.

    This is our favorite to-go place. However, probably due to the staffing shortages, they simply do not have enough service personnel. We had to ask where our server was; it took forever to get out drinks, food etc. Too bad!

    The fries came out limp and soggy - had to send back to be fried. The asparagus came coated in butter/oil. The three grouper dishes were wonderful. Our server, I believe her name was Megan or Morgan, was the rudest I have ever experienced. I have eaten at 636 (formerly Ken & Sues) and never had bad service. Don't know if our server was just in a terrible mood or what but she took it out on us. We got at least 3 eye rolls when ordering something, would ask only one person if they wanted anything further then would walk off without asking anyone else and that was only when she did show up to ask. At the beginning of our meal being delivered a glass of wine was ordered - she was really bothered by the request and didn't bring it. At the end of the meal, told her never mind and she said "oh well, I forgot", never said a word after bringing the check and stood with her hands out so we could pass our dishes to her - it was not a big table! There were 3 of us!!! I left barely a tip only because she deserved none of it. Going by to make sure the others get something but not her!

    636 Main is always part of the good times in Durango visits. Our waiter Matthew was fun, good natured and did a good job. The food was excellent as always. Little bit rushed as the entree came as we were only 1/2 way done with our salads. Overall , still excellent! Thank you.

    This was our first visit under the new ownership and restaurant name. Everything about our service was good to excellent. We had the pistachio crusted grouper, a favorite at the previous Ken and Sue's. It did not disappoint. Looking forward to the continuing developments as 636 Main establishes its own identity.
