“Can't comment on the food...we never got to eat here”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Arrived at the Ore House around 7:00 p.m. on a Thursday evening. There was no waiting line and we could see several empty tables from the entrance near the bar. We waited. And we waited. No one greeted us, although the bartender was only a few yards away from us. We waited a total of 8 minutes without ever being acknowledged, so we walked across the street to Randy's where we had an excellent meal and exceptional service.

“Steak supreme”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Yes, this place is neither fancy nor well lit; however, the salad was crisp, the Flat Iron steak scrumptious! We thought quality might be lacking since the Flat Iron was the cheapest steak option. It was melt in the mouth, slap yo' mama good. Cooked to medium rare perfection, served in its own juice and a solid 10 ounces. It was excellent even for this visiting Texan. Overpricedany ? Perhaps so but has anyone considered how far our dollar value has fallen, $4/gallon transport and increased food costs and wages? Notice how many restaurants in Durango are closed. Ore House has a first class Flat Iron, expect to pay a First Class price for it, buckaroos! Highly
recommend you book reservation via Internet!

“Over priced”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

Not the Old Ore house ! Over priced and food was covered with sauces that were just to rich. No salad bar any more....All entrees cost extra if you want a baked potato it is extra,salad is extra, bread is extra.....order a glass of wine and pay dearly for it but get a small shot glass like serving........ Service was great but prices were super high...Will not go back....

“Other Reviews Spot-On”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Restaurant looks rough-hewn at first look - at entrance you see a bar and think this is just another Durango pub. Nothing special about restaurant room either, but service is surprisingly friendly and steaks are excellent quality and prepared well. Not cheap but worth the freight.
