The outside of this restaurant appears rustic from the outside. Walking inside you'll see people dressed all sorts of attire: tuxes and cocktail dresses, furs, jeans with collared shirts, etc. I wasn't sure what to expect, however, everything we ordered was excellent. My husband and myself ordered appetizers, entrees and desserts. Everything was so delicious, we didn't want to leave.... More

We liked the Ore House in Durango. It is casual and great service and knowledgeable bar. The Brussels sprouts are as good as it gets. And of course, the steaks are top notch.

Great steaks, but very pricey. Locate one of their locals coupons to get second meal half price and the value falls into line somewhat

We had a great anniversary steak dinner at the Ore House. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. Kelly & Whitney were there whenever we needed anything, without being underfoot. The restaurant got extra points for calling that evening to confirm our reservation and moving the reservation up 1 1/2 hours when we ended up getting into town... More
