We stopped in for Happy Hour Beers and sat at the front for a good view watching all the people walk by. Bartender was quite knowledgeable and helpful in guiding us on choices of beer. The beer was quite good and the atmosphere vibrant! We'll have to come back to order some food next time. There was a nice looking... More

They say they're dog friendly. They have 5 bar stools facing the street. Went by 2 times. Told not able to sit on the back patio only out front. The bartender said they "reserve" the front seats for dog owners. Both times they were full w other patrons. They weren't nice or helpful. Sure it doesn't matter, but they lost... More

Mike H, Owner at Carver Brewing Co., responded to this review

Thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately, the San Juan Basin Health Department forbids dogs in restaurants in Durango. The only reason dogs are permitted out in front of Carvers is because the sidewalk is public property and the Health Department has no jurisdiction there. If our bartender told you we reserve seating for dog owners he/she was wrong and I apologize... More

This is my husband's favourite place to drink Tap beer so tried the food. I had the Ruben Sandwich on Gluten Free bun, The corned beef is aged in house. It is the best Ruben I have had in a long time. The Gluten Free bread is the best ever! My husband had a burger, which also is no ordinary... More

Carver's is our favorite breakfast place. It seems to be "the" place in Durango for breakfast. Always busy, especially on the weekends. Food is great, service fast and friendly. Get there early.

Happy hour bears were $3 and pretty good. Our meals were good but lacked veggies! I had an entree, not sure why it was called an entree, didn't come with soup or salad. The meal had no veggies at all! It was actually a little strange, the kids items didn't come with any sides either. Don't get me wrong the... More

Our group of five loved dinner and the atmosphere in Carver Brewing. The beers were quite good, and there seems to be a talented chef in the kitchen. My salad was fresh and full of flavors. I had a quesadilla and split some tacos with my daughter; all were flavorful. My sister had a salmon/rice/veggie bowl with Asian fusion leanings... More

On our second and final night in Durango, we took pleasant 4-5 block walk from our hotel to the Carver Brewing Co. which was very busy, apparently a happening place (well, it was a Fri night) and so we had a short wait. Our only regret was that we weren't hungry enough to do the kitchen justice. Dan, our excellent... More

While passing thru town my friend and I wanted to find a local place to eat and watch some Monday Night Football. Seemed to have a lot of good reviews so we gave it a shot. We waited about 10 minutes for a table and was quickly greeted by our server. Both of us ordered dinner and a beer. My... More

We stopped in for a beer (and root beer float) in the afternoon and then came back for dinner that evening. The staff was young, friendly, and efficient. The beer was good and the food was yummy. I loved the chicken stew and my husband enjoyed his Navajo taco. If you're in Durango, this is the place to go.

only had breakfast and it was excellent. good menu with a variety of omlets, benedicts, and standard breakfast fare. most had a southwestern slant, like chilis, mexican spices and salsas. more expensive than IHOP but excellent value for the quality of the food and service. they open at 6:30 am during the week and by 9:00 there was a line...
