I ate the best rib-eye ever in this place! I don't normally like rib-eye but thought I'd try the "Little Demon" and ate every bite!!!!! The flavor was delicious, cooked to perfection, and seasoned perfectly. I love the salad bar and the great service. Definitely want a return trip!!!!

Dinner was good but not worth the $91...for just 2 entrees, 1 appetizer, & 1 salad. That's it... no dessert, no beverages. Entrees come with a few veggies & potato. I asked for a side salad; none available... but I could add the salad bar for $9. Salad bar is very good... one of the best in Durango. Go on... More

My husband & I went to this restaurant for dinner, after one appetizer, two main courses, a beer, a wine & a mixed drink, we were out $100. The meal was not that good, not saying it was bad just not $100 worth. The service was a little slow although the waitress was very nice but that was the best... More

Just finished one of the best zip lines I've ever been on. 27 lines. An all day event. Upon returning to Durango we were looking for a good meal. We had seen the awning over the entrance of this restaurant a few days earlier so decided to try it out. We were not disappointed. Four of us. Each ordered something... More

Went with my husband for our anniversary and from start to finish our experience was excellent. Our waiter Buzz was attentive and quick. The food was great. We had the crab stuffed mushrooms appetizer which were to die for. The salad bar was clean and good variety. Overall a very good choice we made.

After hours of restraint researching we decided to come here for our anniversary. We were seated very quickly. Our waiter was Buzz (no not from Toy Story!). I got to say he is the best waiter that we had ever had. My tea never went below 3/4. Very attentive. He made our experience at this restraunt very pleasurable. My wife... More

Alaskan crab and Prime rib were great, warm atmosphere, outstanding baked potato, and crab stuffed mushrooms with a nice kick were outstanding.

Our party of 6 arrived and was seated right away. Our server was very nice and did a wonderful job. We had 6 different entrees and all were excellent with the exception of the green beans not being cooked enough. they were still hard and cold! The trout was excellent and it is always a blessing to get a piping... More

My friends and I dined at the The Red Snapper recently. We shared the oysters Rockefeller as an app. It was okay. A little on the dry side. I chose the Ruby Red Trout for my entree. Trout wouldn't be a normal choice for me. I was pleasantly surprised. What caught my attention in the description was the crawfish sauce.... More
