“Melt in your mouth steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2013

This restaurant was one of the closest to our hotel in Durango, so we just happened upon it. We weren't expecting the high prices - it's not a fancy place, quite rustic looking -- but our food was delicious. I ordered the small filet and my husband got the teriyaki flat iron steak. We also ordered a baked potato and a salad.The service was excellent. If you don't mind paying more for great food, Ore House is highly recommended.

“Best meal on the trip - so far”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

Stumbled on this place on our one night in Durango, and so glad we did.
The meal was excellent (had the 'Local turf and turf'). Service was first class - thanks Bridget, and to cap it all, it was Sunday night, so there was 50% off bottles of wine.
Can't recommend the place highly enough. Has a great vibe to it.

“This Place is Great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013

I have been here a few times, and each has been a great experience. The managers Ryan and Mandy put much care and effort into this place and really make it something special. The food is excellent and fairly priced. We will definitely visit again, and will keep referring this place to everyone we know.

“Very good but nothing special for the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

For the price I paid for a bone in New York I expected more. First off u do get a lot of meat since the bone is so small. But the food was just average and the same for my wife's meal. We walked around after dinner and many other restaraunts had such better decor that i should have yried them first Don't get me wrong this is a solid Restaraunt and I would eat there again after I tried a few others first.
