My husband and I have come here on several occasions. We have had wonderful burgers and weekend brunches here in the past and today had a terrific Southwest Cobb Salad, Chile, Gorgonzalo Salad and Fries. The saloon is in the historic Strater Hotel and has a lovely long bar, portraits of lovely ladies and is centrally located on Durango's Main... More

This place is just what I wanted to experience coming to Durango. It has all the character and charm of the old west and its real! Unlike Disneyland or other theme parks this is the real deal! you can feel the energy of the place and even the servers are dressed up. Food was great and they had live entertainment... More

Whether you want a beer or a glass of wine, this is a great place. The ragtime music is amazing. Good food, reasonable prices, and good service make it a popular place.

This was our second visit to the Diamond Belle but our first for dinner. This is a historic atmosphere in the old Strater Hotel on Main Ave. For the first part of our evening there was a ragtime piano player in the bar. This was followed by a cowboy confrontation which spilled out into the street in a showdown. Great... More

My husband and I stopped here for dinner while in Durango. I ordered the Diamond Burger and it was the most PERFECT burger, although my husband wasn't as excited about his trout dish. Our server wasn't overly friendly but she was definitely competent and prompt. The decor and ragtime music could be over the top for some, but I enjoyed... More

We stopped in for a light dinner and a few drinks. What a surprise! Old west place with a piano player taking requests and he was amazing on the ivories! Drinks were good, we had the chicken pot pie and it was good. Very crowded but worth the wait. Decent prices compared to some other places in the area. The... More

This is in The Strater Hotel and is a fun atmosphere with a true Happy Hour (i.e., half priced appetizer and drink menus)

Diamond Belle's is a must if you want a fun evening out in an old-timey Western saloon. I felt like I had stepped back in time - the place looks like the Long Branch from Gunsmoke. The waitresses had on period attire, and the live music was very enjoyable. Diamond Belle's has balcony seating and a beautiful old-fashioned bar. It... More

I worked hard to find one night where we choose to leave our glorious O-Bar-O cabins where I prepared fabulous meals to go out to Durango and have dinner and fun night. I thought this was the place. The ambiance was fun, piano player excellent, drinks...okay. The food was horrible. I didn't even eat my almond crusted trout. I'm not... More
