“Salad bar is the best!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2011

They've always had the best salad bar around. Menu prices posted on the website are lower than the ones on the actual menu. The entrees were OK, but not as good as they used to be.

“Spectacular Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2011

I have been coming to this restaurant for many of the years that I I have lived in Durango, It has the best atmosphere and best food around.

The staff is very nice, always a pleasure to deal with and remember you even if you have only come once or twice. They always seem to do their best with getting to all the tables even if one table is taking a lot of extra time. This always pleases me to see the wait staff put so much effort into their job.

The food is excellent as well, I have never had a bad meal and the fish is spectacular for how far Durango is from an ocean. Always cooked to perfection.

The salad bar is the best in Durango and has many options. When you get up to eat, the wait staff tidies up the table in a very nice fashion. As well, everything is fresh and cut to perfection on the salad bar. Never a complaint.

Finally, they always seem busy on weekend nights which is a hint to how good the food is. Even though they are busy they do a great job with reservations and large groups and small groups alike are seated extremely quickly.

Overall, one of the best restaurants in Durango and it is my first recomendation to anyone new to Durango. No doubt

“We loved this place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2011

The food was delicious here. We had two dinners here in a six day stay. The waitresses were very attentive. Just don't try to have dinner at happy hour. This place is very popular.
