Atmosphere is top drawer and service is professional. Extensive menu and some of the fish are actually fresh (so they say). Our meals were excellent as were the drinks and wine. A little noisy but not exceptionally so. Be sure and make a reservation. I thought it was a little overpriced but I guess you pay for more than just... More

We actually lucked out. We were wandering the beautiful streets of historic Durango looking for a place for a drink and maybe some seafood when we came across the Red Snapper. We went in for happy hour and our drinks and appetizers were to die for so we stayed for dinner. I had tuna and my husband had the halibut... More

The restaurant was recommended to us and we were disappointed. The food was average and the service was second rate. With only two nights in Durango, we regretted eating here! Phil and Rosanne Archuletta

We were in the mood for steak and came here on the advice of a hotel clerk. Great steaks! And the tastiest baked potato I've ever had. Turns out they're grown somewhere near by.

We enjoyed a great, Tuesday evening meal here. We had reservations and the hostess seated us promptly and then kept a careful eye on the service we received. We chose the dinner specials - seared scallops and the halibut. Very well prepared. When my husband ordered the halibut, he requested the cilantro/lime sauce on the side, and was very pleased...

Wonderful quiet place to eat, with large salad bar, friendly staff and extensive menu. I had haddock, and my husband had scallops. Very nicely prepared with large sides of vegetables. Would recommend after long hiking day!

We ate dinner here July 2, 2015. We both had the salad bar which rates a "very good" from us. The baked potato was also very good. Our server, Buzz, was outstanding! As most folks would we observed people at nearby tables, they all seemed to enjoy their meals. We would go back.

Surf n turf restaurant - but we all stuck to the former. Salmon, halibut and shrimp all very good and the four of us shared a big slice of tasty key lime pie.

I really like how classy and clean this place is! I enjoyed sitting up at the bar. I actually went for lunch and grabbed a drink. The bartender was super nice and knowledgeable! The tuna ahi ahi salad was one of the best salads I've ever had! Totally recommend it. Lunch or dinner, it was nice! Only thing is the... More
