Another Great meal in Durango

We met my niece for dinner. This is a fine dining restaurant that is still laid back and relaxing. The salad bar had plenty to offer. Our entrées were delicious and the service was wonderful.

Wow, the sea scallops were perfectly grilled. I might add they were Bacon wrapped. The butternut squash risotto was bland. The broccoli Rob was very tasty. The wife had the Ono (wahoo) and gnocchi with broccoli rob. My son had the jumbo shrimp with oriental seasoned slaw and broccoli rob. New York cheesecake with raspberry syrup, creme brûlée and key...

As a local, I go to The Snapper several times a month, usually for lunch or for Happy Hour before catching a movie . It is quiet and comfortable with good service and some stand out dishes, like the clam chowder, tequila shrimp and the prime rib sandwich. Recently I also discovered the bar has a great margarita, one of... More

She was knowledgeable about the wine characteristics and able to make a drink from specific specifications. The service was quick, efficent, and over all impeccable. The food was so awesome we...

Excellent food and value. The atmosphere is a little dark and 70's style, but the staff is friendly, the location is great, the food is really good, the drinks great as well!

They need to upgrade their atmosphere, salad bar, and menu. It was great service, but we found the menu hadn't changed much in 20 years.

We were seated right away. Staff if friendly, prices are high but food was good and service was excellent. I had the salmon and it was delicious.

We stumbled upon this place and thought we would give it a try. My husband ordered a filet with crab legs and he was very pleased with the crab legs, but the cook did a terrible job on his steak. I ordered the catch of the day which was a seasoned salmon. It was good, but not great. I think... More
