Savory Squash soup and a great salad made a good shore lunch while fishing the La Plata River that runs right by the restaurant. You would not expect the quality of food and ambiance in the middle of such a beautiful and empty country. Service was very good.

Ten miles west of Durango is The Kennebec, a real gem. The wine list was excellent and all the wines ordered were available. The menu offered a wide selection of items and each order was freshly prepared and delicious. The wait staff was courteous and attentive which made the evening more enjoyable. Would I dine at the restaurant again -... More

I have just read some of the reviews for the Kennebec. I can understand the comments about the feeling of not being welcomed. We arrived on a Wednesday night at 6:30 and were brusquely asked if we had a reservation. When we responded with, no, we were greeted with a sour look and told that she was not sure we... More

It's too bad that the nice ambience of this place is ruined by mismanagement and dishonest wait staff. Our waitress basically pocketed our cash payment (with a huge tip) .Management called one of our party to say we didn't pay. the owner/manager sticks up for her dishonest staff and the snubs you by saying the amount is not enough to...

Went there on a Sunday morning and had to wait awhile for a table. This is not a big place and there had to be 60 people there. The service was slow but not their fault it was hard for the waitresses to even get around the people . It took awhile but the food was great and nothing but... More

This used to be a run-down motel years ago, but now it is a little bit of high-altitude Tuscany on the highway near the turnoff to La Plata Canyon, between Durango and Mancos. Some friends took us for Sunday brunch and the food was excellent with attentive staff. Quite a variety of customers, too. An all around pleasant experience.

Went there on a saturday. Went to the bar looking for a drink, saw 6 people behind the bar, but only got a "hello" from one, and then no service. After 15 minutes I gave up. Dinner was average, at best, no imagination. I spent a lot of time near this place, but I will never go back.

What a great place! Beautiful decor - southwestern. Great staff and absolutely terrific food. We had a large group who chose everything from a grilled salmon salad, to burgers, and Eggs Benedict with their own special twist.

The Kennebec is truly food at it's finest; everything is delicious!! We've eaten there several times and have never been disappointed.

Our innkeeper had recommended we try Kennebec Café after our day in the national park. We are so glad he did. It was lovely. We enjoyed the patio dining, although it was a bit cool, and our superb waitress brought me no less than 3 cups of decaf coffee! My husband particularly enjoyed his Chicken Tortilla Soup appetizer as much... More
