“Overrated, but good”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Yes, this is an old Phoenix institution, but, I have actually purchased the same quality, if not better, at local grocery stores for about a third of the price. Waiters are somewhat arrogant and expectant as well (expect large tips to go along with their egos).

If you don't mind paying a premium price for something that you could probably buy on your own and grill it to perfection, then this is the place. While I realize that many people like to simply go out and eat and spare themselves that hassles of their own kitchens, for the price, I will stay at home, thank you.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

Every time we visit we love the atmosphere, food and the drinks are to die for. Get the stone crab if they are in season when you visit.

“Great Steak”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

This was my first time to Durant's and will not be my last. Great
steak and service was professional and timely. This was very good food and decor and coctails that harken back to a different era...The place was full and the turnover was continuos with new people ready to fill every empty table.
