I'm in Durango 3-4 times a year and always stop in. I love this place. I always order the ahi tuna, as it is a light enough dinner to enjoy after a heaping plate of salad from the salad bar. I always look forward to speaking with owners John and Nancy and their staff, Buzz , Shannon and Carla are so nice. I was surprised by some of the negative comments. If you are looking for a nice restaurant, the snapper is it.

hadn't been to the snapper for a number of years, and now i remember why. took my girlfriend, and both of us were less than impressed. we both were disappointed in our meals. sure the salad bar was good, but that's not what we paid high dollar for. meals were just basic, nothing at all fancy for the price. if dining in durango, there are way better choices for similar prices. the palace, kennebec cafe, ken & sues would all be better choices and believe me, the food stands out. just didn't think the meals were worth what we paid.

We have been here several times and it is quite consistent. Great salad bar included with entrees which are quite tasty. Highly recommended.

The Red Snapper is, by far, my most favorite restaurant in Durango! The salad bar is the best in town, not to mention, the inviting atmosphere! The staff is friendly and welcoming. I have never had a bad experience here and that is one of the reasons my friends and I continue to go back, not to mention the Tequila shrimp is devine!

I've lived in Durango for 10 years & the Red Snapper is our favorite place. Excellent in every category. Excellent salad bar that comes with all meals, fresh fish & big portions.
Too expensive? Hello - Lobster is expensive! Priced right for what you get.
Recommend highly.
