“Lunch on the River...doesn't get any better than this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Not the cheapest place in town...but nothing beats the scenery outside on their patio - pay a couple bucks more for the atmosphere and tastier menu...well worth it!

“Best Patio Dining in Durango”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

The Doubletree Hotel sure doesn't take the opportunity to make this restaurant happen. The location is the best in our beautiful town but the service is consistently sketchy. The food is good and out of the same kitchen as the main restaurant inside. We had a burger and a grilled chicken sandwich. The potato chips are brought to the table as an appetizer and they're to die for! Fun lunch cocktail menu too. The place just screams for some attention to detail to make it rock!

“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I enjoyed going to the double tree. It was relaxing and the river is right behind it as well as the river trail. I recommend the river cafe. My server, fletcher was excellent. He kept it very professional but still up beat and funny. I would go back for their fish tacos and good service.

“Great views of the Animas river while you watch the sun go down.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

Great food and a great place to just hang to watch the Animas River go by with all the rafters, kayaks while eating great food and cold beers.
