Great steak, nice laidback western atmosphere, great service. It was a very good place to go for my Birthday dinner with friends. A little pricey but worth it! Do make reservations ahead as this place is always busy.

The Ore House accommodated our large family without trouble; we made a reservation a day or two before our dinner. The filet was delicious, I topped mine with crab & asparagus. Everyone was pleased with their meal! I'd definitely go back!

Really liked the corn on the cob this time of year and the steak . Cooked to perfection . Only wish the restaurant would stay open later past 9pm on weekends ! Instead of 5-9 try 4-10?

This is our favorite restaurant in Durango and we were lucky enough to get to have our rehearsal dinner here back in June. Ryan and his staff did everything to make that evening perfect. It is such a cool and unique place and the food...More
