“Best filet in the history of filets”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

If you like filet mignon and have a little extra money to spend, head to Ore House for dinner. The atmosphere is not white-tablecloth, but the food and service is. It's just a comfortable place to eat. And, did I mention that they also have a decent collection of whiskeys/bourbons?

“Great Steaks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

We tried the Ore House which is quite small and is rustic with it's mining theme. We had the calamari which was very good and beef filet's wrapped with bacon, I can say it was perfectly cooked and delicious. They had a decent wine selection. I would definitely go back.

“Great steak house”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

The steaks and sides were great. One of us got the special which was a sirloin that came with potatoes and spinach...and was very reasonably priced ($28 I think). And two of us got the small filets and shared three yummy sides...mashed potatoes, brussel sprouts and mushrooms... which was pricey, but in line with the quality of the food. Atmosphere and wait staff were also very pleasant..although waitress seemed a bit harried. We would go back.

“Expensive...but very, very good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

We had dinner at Ore House during our visit to Durango, and although it was a bit pricy, the food was outstanding, as was the service. Top-notch service, and everything from the salad to the main course was very flavorful.
