My wife and I went to this restaurant with my wife's friend who had a broken leg...thus she was in a walker. When we went into the restaurant, the hostess said it would be about a 20 minute wait for a table. Since my wife's friend was in a walker, we asked if she could sit in one of the... More

Loved the atmosphere of this place and the old ragtime piano players and dressed up waitresses. The food was good but was disappointed that our appetizers came out at the same time our food did. We wouldn't have ordered them if we knew that. Slightly overpriced especially the drinks, but recommend going because the piano players really put on quite... More

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
