“Awesome Burger”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

Not only was the place charming, the wait staff excellent, the music not too loud and overbearing, the $12 burger was awesome! Large enough to share...and they will split it for you! Great place to spend part of an evening. A must stop when in Durango!

“Second visit as good as the first.”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

We had lunch with friends at the Diamond Belle while visiting Durango 9 months ago and all enjoyed it so returned with my mother a few weeks ago, during another CO trip. It's in the famous Strater Hotel on historic Main St. in Durango. The building itself is of beautiful, old western saloon genre and the corner location provides lots of window seating. It also had a beautiful old bar. The wait staff are dressed in saloon costume so the place gives a first impression of being very touristy and maybe not great food, but it's deceptive. The service is very friendly and fast. The menu has more variety than expected and the value is excellent.
My mother had the winter salad that was fresh and large with lots of good stuff on it. I had the chicken salad croissant with a side of their wasabi slaw (3 kinds of slaw to choose from) and my husband had the meatloaf special. It was all very good with generous portions and each under $10. They offer a selection of specialty martinis. My Mom had the Durango Mango and I the John Daly. They were each fresh, very flavorful, large and under $7.
The attached hotel is well worth a stroll through as it's been maintained in it's old Western, luxurious glory.
All of the staff couldn't be more friendly and I believe they have live music on weekends.
The Diamond Belle had many locals there for lunch which is always a good indicator in such a busy tourist town. A fun stop.

“Great Tradition for Durango”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

If you looking for your not so typical bar in Durango - you have to stop by the Diamond Belle Saloon - Your server is in the costume, fish nets and the entire outfit that goes with it. The staff goes out of there way to make sure your taken care of all the time. When the piano is going it only makes it that much better. A must see when visiting Durango, Colorado!

“fun time!”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

It was so much fun listening to the musicians and the pot roast dinner was amazingly good! We sat in the upper part of the restaurant looking down on the music--a great way to experience dinner.
