I was a little skeptical because of all the hype but this definitely comes with high recommendations and it's somewhere I will return to. The petite filet was outstanding and was cooked just right (get it topped with mushrooms and thin crispy onions). The eastern pine NY strip with lobster and crab sauce was great as well. Add a side of asparagus (marked "giant" was indeed big and perhaps a little tough), mac & cheese with smoked bacon and jalapenos, and smashed potatoes. The service was a little slow but they were slammed. Enjoy the nice southwestern atmosphere while you wait.

I visited The Ore House while on a trip to Durango. The staff is extremely nice and helpful. My colleague and I both enjoyed a great Steak and a couple of drinks. The bacon butter that is served with the corn muffins is amazing. The only bad thing about this outing was the parking. I had to park a couple of blocks away, but it was worth it. I would highly recommend The Ore House to anyone.

I guess I come here every year expecting great food and I am always disappointed. I think this value is low and this restaurant is overated. But I keep thinking it's going to get better and it gets worse. I'm not coming back. I think the quality is poor for the value.

We go to the Ore House every time we have something to celebrate or have out of town guests. It is the best restaurant by far in the area. The food is superior and you get you what you pay for....quality! Our server, Monique took excellent care of us. We are always treated like family by staff whenever we go. People are really friendly and genuine, making sure your dining experience is superb. The ribeyes are our favorite but everything we have had has been delicious. And the veggies.....they make them so you really want to eat your veggies! Definitely the restaurant to go to if you are in Durango or anywhere nearby.

My wife and I dined at the Ore House while visiting some friends in Durango. We were promptly given a great table by hostess Brittany, who stopped by several times during the meal to make sure that all was going well. The service was prompt and with a smile, and the food was outstanding. My wife ordered the king crab, and it was delicious. The guys in our group all ordered steaks, and all agreed that they were superb. The wine list was well rounded, and even though they were out of the Tempranillo that we originally selected, waitress Mandi make a great recommendation on a good Argentine substitute. I can say, with zero doubt that we will be back to Durango, and we will enjoy the Ore House again.
