Description: The Palace Restaurant features classic American cuisine. Steaks, seafood, pasta, great sauces, homemade breads and desserts. You can elect to dine in our family-friendly Victorian tavern and order from our moderately priced tavern menu or sit in our elegant dining room and order from our fine dining menu. On our summertime patio, both menus are available. Our restaurant is located in a circa-1880 building and is styled with beautiful Victorian furnishings, such as dark woods and Tiffany-style lamps. Our dining room fire place makes for a romantic evening out in the winter and our tavern and patio are "local favorites." From casual to elegant, we provide a very special dining room experience, with great, classic food and a friendly staff. Please join us!

“Excellent Food Prepared Well”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

The pan seared Salmon with Lime, Ginger sauce was excellent. Portions were smaller than I expected. Salad was small but delicious. A little pricey for the size of portions. I would eat there again however. (Service was sub-par that day. Slow)

“Monday Burger Night!”
Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

Monday night's special is the burger...we enjoyed ours on the patio on a beautiful evening. Solid burger with a choice of toppings that ended up being our least expensive meal in Durango, but most enjoyed. No reservations allowed on "burger night," but only a short wait which in itself was entertaining. The restaurant shares a courtyard with the narrow gauge train depot so there's great people watching.
Service was fine, side salad fresh and tasty, my daughter raved about her hamburger. Will visit again!

“Good food at sensible prices”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Good range of meals from starters to mains, nice puddings. Pleasant atmosphere, friendly staff, clean rest rooms. Prices reasonable. Right next door to the Durango Silverton railroad station so a good place to eat when you return from your train ride.

Great outside seating, attentive wait staff and the food was delicious. If they have crab bisque on the day you visit try some!

“Good food & service”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

We had a late supper at the Palace Restaurant. It wasn't over-crowded. Our server was knowledgable and extremely pleasant. The food was tasty and the portions were hefty.
