We went to the Ore House to celebrate a birthday. Bring your ID and on your birthday you get the percentage off as how old you are on your dinner. Excellent food and drinks. My only negative would be is that you have to pay a la carte for everything. Extra for sides. It is pricey but the food was... More

Food is outstanding! Atmosphere is delightful! Truly a must stop when in the Durango area. Can get very busy so encourage reservations. Location is great, right down town so you can enjoy a nice stroll down main street once you have enjoyed your meal.

Like many of the previous reviews we found the food here to be faultless and the service excellent. But a bill of $160 including tip for 3 main courses and 3 drinks (2 diet cokes) is not justifiable

Ore House is always outstanding. It is one of the few steakhouses I can think of that bring you the steak you ordered cooked exactly how you ordered it. Everything on their menu is delicious, and they offer wonderful seafood options.

My husband said his New York strip was the best he has ever had. I had a delicious combo of halibut and scallops.

Steak was done to right temp, but it was really nothing special. Every thing is a la cart so its pretty expensive meal. The waiter was great and the wine was delicious.

This is the best place in town to get Alaskan King Crab legs. Lobster as well, but I'm always partial to REAL crab. And the steaks - - forget about it! They've been an institution in southern Colorado for at least 30 years. Service is impeccable and prices are reasonable. What a treat!

Great food and great service. The steak was prepared to perfection and literally was able to be cut with a fork.

Between the amazing menu and fantastic service : I would highly recommend the Ore House. Our server Mark was incredible and made our visit to the ore house and the area great. The food was just out of this world. We got lucky to get in but I suggest reservations...

Thank pnkrckhippie
