Carver Brewing is a brew pub right on the main walking street. Since it is accessible, it is also very busy. There is both an inside and outdoor seating areas. The service was very friendly and prompt, and the beer was good as well. This...month there is a Oktoberfest food special - and the special food was fantastic, some of the best I had in Durango (if you like bratwurst and spaetzle).More

Delicious dinner at Carver was delicious!! I had the chickpea and Brussels salad with steak and my husband had the Four Corners sandwich, which is served on a pretzel bun and is amazing. We also had the soup. huge portion sizes and very friendly staff.

Carvers is hands down my favorite restaurant in Durango! For a brewery, Carvers has a wide range of dishes & drink options, and there's always something for everyone. The burgers are definitely the crowd pleaser, but I love the salads too. Just a good vibe...all around with excellent service. Never ever disappointed, always satisfied!More

This was the first restaurant my husband and I tried after arriving to Durango and it was a great one! The vibe was quiet and dark/moody inside. It made for a great place for a romantic date. Our waitress was attentive and professional. The pretzel...was huge and scrumptious! We split one and honestly, I could have had one to myself and filled up on that and beer. The mac and cheese with bacon crumbles had good cheesy flavor and the portion size was huge. I took about half of it home. Beer was top notch! I’m a craft beer fan, love to try all varieties and this place hit the spot!More

We found this restaurant on downtown durango.com as we were looking for a happy hour experience. They were listed as having a happy hour until 6 PM but when we got here, the server (Bo) told us that it had already finished at five. Rather...than honoring, what was listed on this website or asking a manager if we could have happy hour pricing Bo”s response was I’ll let my manager know that this listing is wrong. Having been a server in several restaurants this is not how the situation should be handled. While the food was OK. My burger was overcooked and based on how we were treated, we won’t be backMore

While traveling, we came here because of great reviews. A delightful experience! Delicious burgers and beer, and exceptional service! My husband and I both had the green chile cheddar burger, he had the fries, and I was pleasantly surprised to have chips and salsa as...an optional side. We both had the Oktoberfest beer. Everything was simply superb! The entire staff was always friendly and efficient, even on a busy Saturday afternoon, but I want to single out Alex M, who was unfailingly patient with us. We are an elderly couple, and he changed a TV to a football game we wanted to watch, then we wanted to change tables for a better view. Thanks Alex! One last thing: we saw several happy children leaving with complimentary frisbees that came with their meals!More
