Great place for lunch. There are a lot of good places in town, but it is nice to get away from the extra people. The service and the food was very good. If you are in the mood for a drink they have a great selection.
It was fun watching the people rafting down the river. Another must stop.

Fantastic waiter and staff were very courteous and friendly. The views of the river with all of the locals using the river was a neat sight. The live jazz was also a memorable experience. I had a ranchers salad that I enjoyed. The prices are a bit high for some things on the menu, but the food, good service and view make it worth every penny!

My wife and I have just spent a week in Durango, Colorado. Great place and lots of good places to eat. But the Animas River Cafe is a really nice change of pace from the Historic Downtown hubbub, and even from some really great places where the locals eat. The Cafe is on the Animas River (you probably already figured that). It is on the backside of the Double Tree Hotel and is just about 30 feet from river's edge. The menu has a lot of variety. We ate there twice and had the Four Corners Salad (FANTASTIC...and I'm not a big salad guy), The Reuben sandwich, and the Ale-battered fish. All were really good, especially the salads. And their iced tea was WONDERFUL...you can get really hot and thirsty walking along the river, and the tea was perfect.

The wait staff were prompt and really friendly. All of the seating is outside, either under a large awning, or cafe umbrellas. I can't say enough about how refreshing our mealtimes were at the Animas River Cafe.
