We were greeted by the owner for dinner. The staff was very attentive and the menu was varied. Our party had trout and salmon that was prepared perfectly.

I looked forward to going here after reading the reviews. Initially we arrived before the dinner hour and had to wait. Finding a place to park can be challenging in this area at peak times. We finally found a place and walked a few blocks only to be greeted by a friendly employee who was just opening the doors. After... More

Quality seafood in a nice atmosphere. Prices compare to the brew pubs. Adequate wine list. Karen delivered outstanding service. My lady had Frutti de Mare which was full of nice seafood. The scallop was literally about 3 ounces and cooked to perfection. Also were shrimp mussels clams all in a spicy broth. I had the crab cake app and a... More

We ate here and the food and service were good. We had salmon, and trout with crawfish. Both were good. Served with fully loaded baked potato and asparagus. I also had the clam chowder. It was good. The crab legs looked amazing but we didn't order. Overall a good place to eat if you are in Durango.

The red snapper is off of Main Street in Durango. Plates cost from $20-50. I had the red trout which was excellent. My husband had steak and lobster. We ate creme brûlée for dessert. The food was perfect. Service was also great. The restaurant was quiet bc we went on a Monday night.

I enjoyed my dinner of blackened salmon and thought the service was pretty good. My wife had shrimp and liked it but thought maybe some vegetables would have been nice with it. My nephew had a nice looking shrimp dish with rice and asperagus and cleaned the plate so it must have been good. It has been a few years... More

This restaurant, a block off Main Street, was a good find for us visiting Durango. We brought three for dinner and all had the same dish (trout w/crawfish) so can't comment about any other offerings. But we were unanimous in our praise for that menu item and could tell the chef was aiming for something tasty and unique - we... More

I'd arrived in Durango on June 9th, 2016 for an overnight stay. It was late and really not in the mood for a full dinner meal. At the Hampton Inn, the clerk suggested dining at "The Red Snapper." The restaurant is located in a vintage building at 144 E. 9th Street and the atmosphere is casual and calming, especially the... More

This place really is a hidden gem! Checked out the reviews before we went in and it lived up to them. Our waitress Eva-Lou was very attentive and sweet she provided excellent service. I highly recommend the Mahi-Mahi with mushroom risotto, it's one of the best meals I've had in Durango! My boyfriend ordered the ribeye medium rare with wild... More
