The Diamond Belle is a page out of history. It is an authentic old west saloon. It has a fun atmosphere with attractive bar maids in period costumes. They have a variety of live music on the weekends. When they have a piano player it adds to the old time fun.The food is good and the bar is well stock... More

In town for 2 nights only and we choose this restaurant for our second evening meal. It was a nice walk from our accomodations and well worth it! Excellent staff, friendly and helpful. The home made food was very good and the wine list was extensive. Good old home cooking! The decor was what I would expect of downtown Durango-restored... More

The Diamond Belle is a blast from the past. Costumed servers and bartenders add to the charm of this saloon. Live rag-time piano is fun. They have daily food specials, and the food is decent quality. Definitely atmosphere is what the Diamond Belle is all about.

I go as often as I can when I visit Durango for the wonderful Drinks and Atmosphere! This place is what I imagine an old west bar was like. Great service. Evan is my bartender of choice and is the very BEST. The burgers here are the best in town.

we stopped in after the train ride to relax and have a few cocktails. The staff was excellent and we enjoyed the people watching before heading up to our rooms.

We had lunch at the Diamond Belle. Servers all dressed up in period appropriate attire. The food was good, the fire warm and the beer is cold.

A visit to the Diamond Belle located on the main floor near the entrance to the Strater Hotel is a must for any visitor to Durango, not just for the old west gunfight theatrics which take place on a regular basis, both in and outside the saloon, but also for the very warm and personal touch of the wait staff....

This bar is a part of the historical Strater Hotel in Durango, Colorado. It has a great lunch menu, too. I had the veggie sandwich, which was very good. I should have ordered the carrot salad because my fries were not the top of the scoop - more like the remnants, but still good. This Saloon is a tourist favorite... More

No apparent management & if we hadn't sat at the bar, we wouldn't have gotten service. Very cool old building but the employees were all too snooty to make a pleasant experience. Yes, you're a waitress in an 1890's outfit but that doesn't make them any kind of celebrity. Sad the food is over priced for what you actually get.... More

Dear Cynthia, I apologize for your inadequate experience in the Diamond Belle Saloon on New Year’s Day. We were extremely busy when you both came in and only had room for the two of you at the bar. As the manager on duty I do remember finding you two a table with Deanna as your server, as I was taking... More
