Still a great steakhouse but...

....boy the prices have gone up! The most expensive item is now over $100. This place is a Phoenix classic--the red flock wallpaper has not changed in over 60 years and local politicos still conduct business over lunch. Pretty simple menu--steak, seafood and some alternate choices. The service is... read more

The food is ok however $70 for a steak is stupidly overpriced, it was nice but not the best I've ever had although I do think it's the most I've ever paid anywhere. The fries that come with the steaks were poor quality too, like they were from a freezer packet certainly not fresh or the quality you except for... More

The service was very good and so was the food. The only issue was the high price. It was priced higher than the expensive steak houses but not as good.

This was suggested to me by a gentleman we had met earlier in the day at another pub. This place is amazing! The decor is that out of the days of the Rat Pack, as I was sitting at the bar I thought any minute Mr. Sinatra would walk thru the door. The staff was great. Professional and friendly. One... More

A celebratory dinner with great friends who recommended we give Durant's a try. Most of us ordered just the Prime Rib, but one of our party also added an order of Oysters Rockefeller. Ordering different sides gave us an opportunity to share and compare more from the menu. Each of the four of us even tried a different dessert. From... More

Nothing can compare to the the red velvet walls, kitchen entry, EXCELLENT cosmo's, and personable service here!!! Not to mention the steaks are by far some of the best to be found in the valley... The Delmonico is tender and was cooked perfectly!

Food was tasty - steaks of course! Manhattan Clam Chowder (soup of the day) was good. Unique entry from back parking lot through the kitchen.

Came in with a large business group recently and was completely blown away by the prices. Seriously, sides like creamed spinach and potatoes for $14?? Oysters Rockefeller for $29?? Shrimp cocktail $30?? 8 oz Filet Mignon for more than $50? Seriously, the prices are insane!! Funny that they don't list the prices on the website, as obviously people wouldn't go.... More

Hadn't been there for many years and was quite disappointed at the lackluster lunch. Our server was rather obnoxious and suggested the special which was flat iron steak on a Cobb salad. Got steak on top of a bunch of greens with no way to cut it. Just has become too pretentious and is not good value for the money.

A classic, old school steakhouse, in an atmosphere that hasn't changed much in 60 years. Fantastic setting, food, drinks, and service.
