They replaced with Trout special. It... More

Four buddies and I went here while staying in Durango on a bike tour. We were all very satisfied with our meals and our waitress was excellent. We made reservations in advance and got in promptly. Overall it was one of our best meals of the week and we ate at some very nice places.

We have ate here for 20 years always very good. This time not so good. Salad not included with the meal ($8), dirty dishes in the cooler at salad bar, very low on lettuce in the bowl. The meal arrived lukewarm, butter would not melt on the baked potato. Service was good as normal.

We went to this restaurant because of the good reviews. Boy were they wrong. We went early on a weeknight. Rotten Service and high price for mediocre food.

Friendly staff! Great food! We enjoyed every minute. The seared scallop special my husband enjoyed was a work of art. I had the salad bar and Santa Fe Crab Cakes from the appetizer menu as my entree. They were incredible! We will definitely be back !
