From farm to table and vine to wine Eolus Bar & Dining offers something for everyone. The local bounty shines through as the restaurant features an array of local products from farms, ranches, vinters, and breweries around southwest Colorado. Offering distinct places to enjoy the cuisine the rooftop patio is covered providing ample protection from the elements while providing premium views of the surrounding mountains. The elegant dining room provides choices of tables or booths to relax and sample creative concoctions from the bar.

The service, food, atmosphere is some of the best in town. They use locally grown items. If the weather is nice and you can eat on the roof......do it. I have never been let down here.

Joined two colleagues for a casual business dinner and really enjoyed the evening. Prices are higher than I like to pay for dinner, but they are on par for restaurants in Durango. I ordered the filet with mash potatoes and it was awesome. Service by Ryan was prompt and friendly. Home made ice cream for dessert was terrific. We ate... More

We stopped in to have a drink and a snack, and were lucky enough that the roof area was open. We ordered their specialty drinks (which were very good) and shared a warm beet salad. OMG! This is absolutely the best beet salad I have ever had. We probably messed up not getting the large, but it was still plenty... More

My wife and I only go to the happy hour for a ridiculously good price for special food and drinks. It's an early happy hour though. best burger in town for quality and price. Calamari is superb. $2 draft beer during happy hour.

We arrived for our reservation and were seated promptly. We liked the looks of the restaurant and the ambience. We ordered the Calamari appetizer. The sauce was good but... More

This restaurant wants to be something it is not. Prices are high, service is so-so and food is good, but not great. Good local place, but not as "high and mighty" as they perceive themselves to be.

A group of friends decided to eat here as we thought the ambiance would allow us to have a conversation without shouting over a din. We were right! It is a lovely atmosphere to enjoy a conversation with your companions. Several of us ordered the Smoked Salmon Chopped Salad and were surprised to find it arranged in narrow strips on... More

I had read the Trip Advisor reviews and based on other's reviews thought I would try this restaurant. All the other reviewers were correct this is one fantastic restaurant. I was greeted upon entry, seated promptly, offered coat service, and the waiter was there pronto. He knew his products and offered prompt service. I had the special sushi of the... More
