“Outstanding food & good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2011

Went looking for a different restaurant, but couldn't find it, so we "settled" for the Ore House. We were delighted. We had to wait for a table for 5-10 minutes, but we sat in the bar with a menu, had a drink and were ready to order as soon as we got to the table. The dinner was great, and the cost was what we anticipated. Would recommend it to anyone and will go back there next time we're in Durango

“excellent steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2011

great atmosphere, service was excellent-but we went right as it opened at 5pm. Steak was cooked exactly as ordered, would definitely go again! Nice atmosphere, but also casual.

“what has happened to the Ore House?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2011

For the last 25 or so years, we generally eat once each time we visit Durango. By in large the meals and service have been very good.

Our last visit will be our last. The of five entrees were terrible, service non existant, and when brought to the managers attention, she dismissed us & our concerns with the comment ...all you want our free meals.

Our friends who live in Durango we taken by her attitude and want be returning.

“The Best Steak Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2011

The most amazing culinary experience, from the Caprese salad with 3 different local basil's with a slight dusting of rock salt to make your taste buds zing! The staek was perfectly cooked and the most amazing filet I've had in a very long time. Service was great and the staff friendly. Not to mention the atmosphere was warm and inviting with a fantastic aroma!!
