“Nice for Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2014

We went here for breakfast. There was a line (the place is fairly small) and the wait was 20-30 minutes; a good sign. We got seats a lot faster than expected and chose the breakfast burrito pancake and the eggs Benedict. The blue corn pancake was yummy, but we thought it would go better with a sweet filling. Nevertheless a nice dish, although a lot of food to eat in one go. We got a box and that took care of that problem. The eggs Benedict were nicely done and had good hash browns; fresh and tasty, unlike the reheated heap of greasy scraps that a lot of places serve. The service was good and friendly and we picked up a growler of beer on the way out. We will come back here to sample more of the menu.

“Great hamburgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2014

We went specially to this place for tasting their own brewed beers.
The waitress was very kind and gave us a little explanation of their selection.She adviced us to take 5 different small glasses what makes the service personal.
Whe where sitting at the bar, atmosphere was relaxed and good.
We decided to eat here and ordered a fantastic hamburger (one the best I ever tasted).The meat was very soft, tasted and jucy ; also the bacon, tomato, etc. was very fine.
Overall, we had a very good experience in Carver's.

“Try the Raspberry Wheat Beer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2014

Food was very good, service was great. The beer sampler gives you the chance to taste test some of their brews, and you can purchase a 1/2 or 1 gallon of beer to take with you. We really liked the raspberry wheat beer.

“Dog-friendly (but barely any room)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2014

We attempted to eat dinner here with our dog.
There are 3 small tables outside on the sidewalk that were packed so no such luck.
We did return on Sunday for brunch and were lucky enough to get one of the tables (we just missed the rush).
The food and service were very good. I would definitely go back but travelers with dogs beware... Durango is not that dog friendly when it comes to eating out!

“Good dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

10 of us went to Carver on our first night in Durango. We almost left as the hostess was extremely rude and refused to seat us on the back patio despite the fact of there being several empty table out there. Not quite sure why she was having such a bad day- we sure hope she isn't always that rude. Well, we were finally seated and our waiter, Kellan, couldn't have been nicer. Our meal was great (I loved the chicken quesadilla).
