Fantastic array of beer to fit every taste. The food was really good, but didn't match the description. I ordered the grilled cheese with avocado special, but it turned out to be a turkey, ham and cheese... No avocado. Still a good sandwich, but not what I wanted daughter had the steak sandwich, it was really good. Mom had a... More

We had an excellent dinner here. The food was great, including the kids' meals, and the beers were every bit as yummy. The service was good too. Definitely recommended!

Stopped here for a beer tasting and stayed for dinner. Their food was very good. The staff was friendly and excited to talk about their beer choices. It wasn't just a brewpub, you could be comfortable taking your family with you to eat here.

My husband and I stopped in for a couple beers and an appetizer. Beer was really good, meatballs were stupid good and the service was fair.

We were driving through Durango CO on our way to southern Utah and were in need of some nutritional refueling. We checked out Yelp and made our way to the Carver Brewing Co. and are very glad we did. We were seated in the patio area and were waited on by a former fellow-Oklahoman who gave us outstanding service as... More

I gave it a 2 because of the service. We got seated by the bar, which was ok but we were by the main drag. A lot of people, servers constantly walking by. Our server was not very attentive. My mom was asking him what he suggested on the menu and all he stated was what they had: soups, salads,... More

Thank you so much for bringing up the poor service you received at my brew pub -I can't fix something if I don't know it's broke! I am so sorry my waiter was not very attentive. We pride ourselves on having fast, friendly service and a fun atmosphere where our guests feel like family. Your experience goes against everything we... More

The good- food was great, the Twilight Peak IPA was great, pub atmosphere was great as we sat inside and not on the patio. But, by the time we got seated we were just happy to have a table. The bad (sort of) - do not get there when they are turning the kitchen from breakfast to lunch, around 11:15... More

Thanks so much for your TripAdvisor response -you've hit the nail on the head: we need a bigger restaurant! That's part of what makes this place special though -there's only one Carvers and there's only one place in the world where you can enjoy a Carvers brew with a "Tatanka Burger." I wish we had a kitchen that was big... More

It was a busy Saturday evening, and it seemed that every place on downtown Durango's main drag was full of people and wait lists. Carver was no exception. While waiting, we were able to take advantage of one of the three small metal pub tables outside. Our beers were cold and refreshing, and we conversed with the other people waiting.... More

We stopped here for lunch. Dont let the street appearance fool you. . . There is a nice patio in the back. The wait staff was very attentive and helpful. The food was delicious. I had a buffalo burger. It was excellent.

This place was recommended by one of the staff at Soaring Tree Top Adventures. Their beer is excellent; I had the Raspberry Wheat ale and my husband had the Old Oak amber ale. Very refreshing after a day soaring! The food was excellent! My husband ordered the beef tips - they were tender and flavorful. I had the quinoa burger.... More
