We decided to have an early dinner at 5:30 and it was a good thing bc the place got packed and very few tables left w/o reservation. Our steaks were OUTSTANDING, sides delish and service was outstanding. Warm and cozy atmosphere! Would def return!

Ore House consistently delivers an excellent meal, with simple items cooked to absolute perfection. It is a special treat, at my budget, but it is worth every dollar. Restaurants that manage this kind of consistency are few and far between in my experience. Enjoy!

Chateaubriand for 2 on 9/20. We are from Texas, and good steak is normal for us. This was crusty, tender, and very flavorful. Great atmosphere. Go eat here.

Great western ambience. Real western steaks. A classic! Good service, too. It's popular for a reason.

My wife and I had dinner here and really couldn't find fault with anything.

Steaks were fabulous and cooked exactly to order with... More

My son lives in close by New Mexico and recommended this restaurant. I had the most amazing flat iron steak! In addition to that my cocktail and wine choice were excellent, as well as the sides we chose. All 7 of us chose a cut of red meat and it was all delicious and cooked perfectly. We would definitely return!... More

My girlfriend and I ate here for our anniversary dinner. We weren't starving so we shared a steak and sides and each ordered a salad. The ribeye we ordered was very good. The sides were tasty.

We ate here one night based upon tripadvisor reviews. Although I have had better fillets, I have no complaints. The decor of the restaurant is very appealing and the wait staff is quite attentive.

We made a reservation and arrived early. We wanted to sit at the bar. OMG. The bartender was the greatest of all times. Very up on all the new liquors and knew the menu to a T. Service and food were top on our trip. Please put this on the menu when you travel to Durango.

We went there for a meal, quite late in the evening, and were pleasantly surprised by the great food. It was fresh, very tasty, beautifully presented and reasonably priced. The staff were friendly and helpful.
