We visited SKA recently. We were seated at the bar. The place was busy but not full. As we started to order the bar tender advised us that we'd have to wait 90 minutes for our food!!!! That the first time in my lifr that...a restaurant ran out of food at 6 PM on a Tuesday night. We decided to leave, along with other folks. Suggestion - don't go there looking to eat, go to have just a beer until they get their business straightened out. Perhaps their menu should be limited to fries and snacks.More

Great times we had while visiting the brewery. With a mature and friendly wait staff the hospitality shown was exactly what was needed for weary visitors. The beers were average but the variety made up for it. The pub food was amazing. The pizza and...cheese fries were a daily staple, they should get an award for how amazing they are. Best of all this is the best deal in all of Durango, extremely affordable for a resort town. We ate multiple times at Ska and tried everything on the app menu. Only thing I found odd was no Ska music was playing at a brewery named Ska.More

Went here during our last full day in Durango. I only wish we went there earlier in our trip! We asked about doing a tour but they said due to COVID that tours stopped but should be starting soon hopefully. We started out sampling some...of there beers and they were all wonderful! My favorites were the Double Hazy IPA and Tropical Hazy IPA. My wife really liked their selection of hard seltzers. Their food was amazing also. We had their Desert Fog pizza and it was so good we ordered another! The green chili chicken soup was very good also. All staff were extremely friendly despite it being busy during lunch. Thank you so much for your hospitality and we hope to return again soon!!More

Gave this place 2 stars because the beer was very good. Had we just come for beer, I would have given this five stars. However, we came for dinner. First, when we walked up, the hostess left to take some folks to their table but...did not return for 10 minutes. (fine) Then, were told to wait 25 minutes for a table. (fine) They took our beer order and took us to a spot to wait. On our way, we saw multiple open tables and did not see many folks ahead of us waiting. (fine) We only waited about five minutes for our beer (great!). But ended up waiting 30 minutes for our table (fine). When they brought us to our table, they took us to one of the tables that I saw was empty the entire time we were waiting (ok,fine). I had finished my beer and it was hot out so I wanted some water and another beer. Not one person came by for a full 15 minutes. (oof). I was finally able to flag someone who appeared to be the manager and I asked them if they could bring us water, another beer and some menus. She said she would be our server (great). However, she dropped off the water and beers and we never saw her again. Another 15 minutes went by when we could flag down another server and order our food. Meanwhile, table after table was getting served all around us and people who arrived after we did were finishing up their dinners. We ordered an appetizer and two main dishes. I had the pork (honestly, they were smoking it and it smelled-and tasted-delicious.) and my husband had a burger, which was good. They brought out our dinners after a while and no appetizer. I finally flagged someone down again to please let the kitchen know to not bring us the appetizer as we had plenty to eat by then. The guy who took our order--literally the only person who came to our table more than once--apologized for his forgetting to add it to our order (fine). Finally, we finished eating and then had to walk inside to find anyone to bring us our ticket. We were there over 2.5 hours and 2 hours of the 2.5 hours, we were searching for someone to help us. Honestly, this might have been my least favorite dining experience I've ever had when traveling. We kept asking for someone to please just be assigned to us. Honestly, we're not particularly demanding customers. I tip well and all I ask is that someone periodically check on us. When I finally found the guy who had initially taken our order and then forgot the appetizer, he said that he knew the service was terrible and he wished that he could adjust our bill. However, he could not. THAT made me angry. There was no reason we should have not been comped at least a beer OR he should have said nothing at all about it. He said that I did not need to tip him. Of course, I tipped him 30% of our bill. It's COVID and I know waitstaff are hurting now but dang, it did not feel good to do it and I know for a fact, we will not go back to that place again.More

I've been to Ska a number of times. Always liked & enjoyed the beer. Though, over the last three visits, I've noticed the beer lessening in quality. On this trip, the wife and I hit a couple breweries before going home. Things have gotten worse...at Ska. So much so, that I only ordered one beer and noticed about 4 hard Seltzer's on the menu. Not a good sign. We ordered lunch. I had a hot roast beef sandwich. The food was just plain bad. The sandwich was basically a lump of meat on a dry roll/bun. Some accoutrements, but again, fairly dry. I left party of it. The fries were horrendous. Semi-cold and without flavor. We also ordered their cheese, bacon fries (had some jalapenos) and left half the basket untouched. I don't know it's Ska is struggling financially, but if the food quality and high percentage of hard seltzer vs. beer on the menu is any indication, I'd say yes. I probably won't return. Carver & Steamworks are far better.More
