We chose to go here based on the high reviews. It was very good. My wife had the local raised rib eye and she thought it was great. I ordered the 21 day aged rib eye and it was also good but not quite as tender as I would have expected for aged beef. Salads were good and the house Cabernet was a good choice with the steak. Waiter Mike was good. We had a very nice dining experience.

I visit Colorado nearly every summer since the 1960's, but haven't eaten here since 1975 till
this year, when I went twice. While pricey with most meals a-la-carte, the quality and preparation of the dinners was exceptional. Steaks are tender, aged to perfection, and
cooked to order. Seafood equally excellent. The best meals we had on both two and a half
week trips a month apart. Expect to pay about $45 per person, not including liquor.

On our 2009 trip with 5 teenage boys ( I missed due to our son with Autism) My husband on my recommendation from my 2005 trip took our son and his buds there for dinner. The food is excellent. The boys ate the dishes as well!! They have the best steak around. My crew ordered 16oz on up and ate it all!!! Very nice ambiance and great service. Excellent choice for steak lovers.

There is no shortage of restaurants in the downtown Durango area, but for some reason, although we are frequent visitors there, we just had not gotten around to trying the Ore House. Our mistake! Our steaks were outstanding and done exactly to our order. The menu is mainly a la carte, so one can tailor one's meal to one's liking. There is a full service bar. Our pleasant wait person, Lori, was attentive yet not intrusive and her excellent knowledge of the extensive wine list was most helpful. Reservations are accepted and are a good idea during the busy summer season.
