We had my birthday dinner here, as we always do. It was so dang delicious. Kelly was our waitress and she was spectacular. We love everything about this place, it’s just not often within our budget.

We had one of our best meals during our Southwest Road trip at the Ore House in Durango. Our server Anthony was very attentive and gave us great information in making decisions for our selections. The atmosphere is charming and cozy. Great place for a date night or special occasion. If we are ever in the Durango area again, this will be our go to location for a great meal and friendly service.

The Ore House is a gem one is most happy to find when coming to Durango merely to ride the train! The staff was solicitous, my server (Bailey) couldn't have been better, and the food - in my case the lobster bisque (highly, highly recommended!) and chicken cordon bleu - was oh so tasty. While I doubt I'll ever pass through Durango again, if I do, the Ore House will be on my itinerary. In fact, the Ore House is so good that I might just pass through again!

We went for my birthday, because they have an incredible birthday deal. The meal was lovely -- excellent steak and seafood. And a lovely salad. Cocktails were delicious -- and strong! We had dessert, because this was a celebrstory feast, and it was delicious. Our server was really great, and all the service people who dealt with our table were excellent.

The service was fabulous. The staff noticed when we needed our steak cooked longer because of me being pregnant. They also noticed that my son needed a new drink because his didn’t taste good to him. The cornbread was delicious, as well as my wedge salad and steak. The sides are served family style, which makes it fun to share and try multiple things. We had a delicious meal.

Was in Durango, CO to take my daughter for a college visit. Went to Ore House for dinner and everything about this place was excellent. We tried to go to dinner a couple nights before but because we didn't have a reservation, we had to wait an hour and a half. We ate elsewhere and made reservations for another night. Now I see why this place requires a reservation. The food was excellent and the service was just as good. My family and I had a great time here and enjoyed the entire experience. I will definitely be visiting this establishnent when I come back.

First time visiting Durango and Ore House was recommended to us. I had the spinach salad & crab cake as my meal; both were delicious. My husband had the rib eye and unfortunately it was served lukewarm. However, the wait staff was quick to fix the problem by heating it without over cooking and discounting the entree by 50%.
We were seated promptly and the service was great.

The Ore House is our favorite restaurant in Durango. It's so much more than a traditional steak house with amazing craft cocktails, a delightfully exciting wine list and unparalleled food quality. Their service is friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. We go there to celebrate, we take our clients, and we go for a weeknight family meal. The menu is diverse, with plenty of seafood, lighter options and low carb choices. Dining here is an absolute treat. You don't want to miss it!

Food and service were top notch. Wine prices were reasonable, not like some places that price their wine at 3-4 times retail which is a real pet peeve of mine. Will definitely go back again the next time I’m in Durango.

Everything was perfect from the moment we walked in the door. The greeting we received was gracious and professional, our server was attentive but not annoying, every bite of our food was above expectations. Although I've been in the past, this was the best meal yet, and we will definitely be back soon.

We made a same day reservation online but when we arrived the place was packed and they were not able to seat us at our assigned time. Everyone was super apologetic and they made sure we got a round of drinks on the house while we waited. The food was superb, the cocktails were interesting and delicious and the service was perfect (even with the unexpected wait).
