The staff and owners are the bomb. They have the best food. We ate there 3 times in a week. There food is creative and taste like nothing you have ever eaten. If you do not have room for dessert get it and take it home. They have 6 or seven homemade desserts to meet every sweet tooth dream you... More

The restaurant is a marvelous find...perfect ambience & service, however, I too found the chicken confi with balsamic too salty for my taste. My husband had the pork loin and that was excellent. We went on a Thursday evening & were treated to live music. We will plan another trip here upon our return to the Blue Lake Ranch.

While staying in Durango we visited the Kennebec for dinner on a Wednesday evening just about dusk. Though we didn't have a reservation, we were greeted with warm smiles and seated at our request on their cute outdoor patio. The patio quickly turned chilly though, so we were cheerfully re-seated inside. The decor is warm and inviting, the acoustics appropriately... More

We ate dinner at the Kennebec every night for the week we stayed at the Blue Lake Ranch. The ever changing specials and helpful wait staff made dining a marvelous experience. They have fat free bread for my spouse and I indulged in the biggest piece of carrot cake I have ever seen.

Beautiful place. Nearest restaurant to Blue Lake Resort, where we were staying. Waitress was delightful. Had the special flatbread, which is crunchy and delicious. Hubby had the fennel encrusted pork loin which was tender and moist. I had the "famous" chicken pot pie which was really a thick creamy chicken and vegatable stew with a puff pastry on top. Not...

The food, the service, the desserts, and the ambiance are all excellent. Just 15 minutes west of Durango. This local favorite is worth the trip!

Super breakfast. One of the best omelets I've ever had. Fresh veges and superb cheeses used. Hash browns cooked to perfection and coffee very good quality.

We had brunch here on Father's Day with friends who had previously described this quaint southwestern restaurant as one of their favorites. They were so right! We had reservations on the patio on a beautiful day. Spouse and I had Eggs Benedictos, served on a puff pastry instead of an English muffin accompanied with fresh asparagus. Just delicious! Service was... More
