Great selection of brews, fun atmosphere and - wow! - the Chop Salad is the best restaurant salad we've ever had. Clearly a popular place for tourists and locals alike and deserving of the reputation.

This is an extremely popular place - long waits. We went for the beer. The beer is good and fun to get a flight to sample six of them. The food, however, was only so so. That is unfortunate. We had hamburgers, fish and chips, tortilla soup, pulled pork, salads, pizza - all of it was just okay.

There was a long wait and the food was mediocre. I had a burger that tasted a little charred. The mashed potatoes tasted off (not good) but they gave me French fries instead with no problem. The waiter was friendly but I would not return since the food was lackluster

After riding the train to Silverton and back we were hungry and thirsty. We showed up and there was a 30-40 minute wait, no biggie. Found it odd that there were at least a dozen empty 4-tops that were still set and looked like they hadn't been sat all night. They beer was good, but the food was not anything... More

We had a really terrible experience here!! Waited about 10 min for a table at 1:45 for lunch- no big deal. Seated and greeted by waiter who took our drink order- 3 sodas and water. 20 minutes goes by. Waiter rushes back to table with 2 waters and apologizes that the bar is way behind and it shouldn't be long... More

Our river guide Nate-recommended this place for my fiancé and 2 daughters. Iy was a Wednesday night around 7:30 and we had a 30 minute wait-but once seated the service was quick and personable. I had the pizza, fiancé had the French dip, and my girls had the Cajun boil pot. Everything was very good and the portions were generous.

Their Cajun boil and chimichanga were so delicious! Their stout is delicious as well despite it being summer. They are super busy so just sit back and enjoy the brew and not worry about the service which we thought was perfect despite other reviews

We ate here last night. My wife, 15yo, 11yo, and I. Food was outstanding! The chorizo burger was amazing. We ate near the windows, which were open to allow the cool evening air to flow in. We had thunderstorms so it was awesome. The Cajun chicken sandwich was also amazing. While fries can only be so good, we found theirs... More

Steamworks service was slow, the orders were delivered at different times. The kitchen appeared to be disorganized. The food was about average, nothing memorable. No plans to return.

Steamworks Brewing Co. Opened its doors in Durango in September 1996. A favorite watering hole for locals and visitors alike, the brewpub has much more to offer than award-winning craft beer. Known as a town meeting place, Steamworks enjoys a bustling, fun environment. Steamworks' culinary program is unmatched in the region in both breadth and quality of offerings. The "gastropub" fare includes regionally-raised meats and sustainable seafood. Healthy salads, delicious pizzas, spicy Southwestern-style dishes, and vegetarian & gluten-free offerings provide something for everyone who's hungry. The Steam Engine Lager is "arguably the best American - Style Amber Lager in the world" as it has garnered four Gold Medals, a Silver and a Bronze Medal at the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) over the years and also has taken a Silver Medal at the World Beer Cup (WBC). Steamworks has won a total of twelve GABF medals, and two WBC medals. The brewpub maintains up to 18 styles of beer on tap.
