Probably a must visit in Durango for the Old West charm. Drinks were a little pricey and the sour drinks were very sour. You really go there for the atmosphere.

There were no musicians when we went but there was an actor bringing the history of the place alive. Great staff, great beer!

Durango is a town awash with eating establishments and so we selected Belle's based on Trip Advisor. We weren't disappointed. The saloon had a lively atmosphere, the servers were happy and friendly, and the food was fresh with generous portions. The dishehs themselves could have been warmer but the food could not be faulted. Service could have been quicker but... More

Told to wait for 10 minutes to get a table as they almost had one ready, we just had to wait in the hotel lobby for a short while. The time went by, and no one giving us any message/excuse about longer and longer wait. After 45 minute she came to the lobby and asked for the name of someone... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this restaurant, which we were sure would be a mediocre tourist trap. To our surprise, the food was wonderful! The waitresses were dressed in period costumes. The decor was very "old west" style. But the food... yum! I had the chicken souvlaki with a spinach, pearl couscous and cranberry side dish that was divine. The... More

I had read about this saloon and wanted to visit. What a great time we had. They have a piano player for happy hour (4-6) who plays ragtime. After that, he plays any requests and is very, very good. He is a retired attorney and lived on the east coast. The menu has a little of everything and the waitresses... More

I went here based on the reviews I read on this site. As promised, the atmosphere was killer! However, we had over a two hour wait just to get our food. The hostess simply stated she couldn't find us, even though she sat us at the bar. Overall I probably wouldn't come back for dinner but I would for a... More

The food was very good with the waitresses in old west costume. Then much to our surprise there was an old west shootout. Would definitely recommend.

We ate here on the balcony with our boys. The old hotel and saloon are really amazing and beautifully restored. The saloon atmosphere is great with the staff in period costume, friendly and efficient. They had a staged altercation and shootout in the street that was a stretch, but fun and the kids got to do the countdown and then... More
