Went to Durant's for a special occasion dinner. Enjoyed the classic steak house feel, dark lighting, textured red wallpaper, etc. The steaks were excellent (as they should be for the price). Side dishes were understated and not impressive Bread was excellent. Veggie appetizer plate was...More

This is a classic steakhouse. Dark atmosphere, great service and food. Limited options if you are not a steak eater. Great place for expense accounts. A bit pricey for the general public.

From the time you enter (through the kitchen) the staff treats you like are a regular there every week. It has the classic red button & tuck upholstery, professional waiters with the dark vest & white shirts, and low light atmosphere. I am looking forward...More

Delicious! Be sure and try the bread. We shared a Shrimp Scampi Appetizer, which was very good. We each had the small prime rib which was cooked perfectly and was a good size. The sides were good. Entering and exiting through the kitchen was a...More

A last minute choice, we ended up at Durant’s based on a friend’s referral. We sat in the bar; red button tuck leather, red velvet and dark wood trim expecting the rat pack to walk in. Service was great and food lived up to the...More
