Atmosphere is classic steakhouse/supper pub. Wait staff was wonderful, can't say enough, they made us feel very comfortable. Lemon drop martini was great, not too much lemon not too strong. Prime rib was superb, cooked to perfection, melts in your mouth. The flavor of Italion wedding soup was just right not too much spice or salt. Bread was crunchy on... More

If you need a place to meet a client for drinks somewhere around downtown Phoenix, I cannot think of a better place. Great staff, generous pours, and fair prices. This place is truly like taking a step back in time. Enjoy

Over the years, Durant's is the all time favorite of my wife and I. It starts when you enter thru the actual kitchen. The feel of the restaurant is very "old school" good. We love eating in the bar. You will receive the most professional and attentive service anywhere. Favorites: Lunch- French Dip; Southwestern Chicken Sandwich. Dinner- Lobster; Wedge Dinner... More

The dimly lit interior, large comfy booths and appetizing food selections make this long time central Phoenix restaurant a perfect dining spot. Park in the back lot and walk through the kitchen to be seated in either the large dining room or bar area. Durant's is known for perfectly grilled steak and the infamous "fat man's selection" for lunch or... More

Our family rarely agrees on anything, except that Durant's is the best steak house in all Phoenix. Old school flocked red wallpaper ambiance, tuxedo'd wait staff, huge portions, the best meat in town, stiff drinks. What else is there? Enter through the back kitchen area so you don't look like a newbie.

This is rated as a #1 steak house of the top 10 locally shown restaurants under googles search. To be fair the steaks were cooked excellent. The surroundings were warm and comfortable. The signature 48 oz steak which was my target steak was not available even after calling to reserve a steak. With full bookings until 8:30 one would think... More

Thank God that our friend Coptis out Ruth Chris and into Durant's You have to enter through the back door which takes you through the kitchen on your way to be seated.

We came here with some business associates and it was weird. We parked out back, where you would if you had your car valeted. And you walk through the kitchen. The kitchen. And it's not a cool hipster open kitchen. It's a kitchen from the 1950s. Sometimes you don't need to see what is going on behind the curtain. The... More

Whenever we fly into and out of Sky Harbor Int'l in Phoenix, we book a stay in the Marriot Fairfield Inn Midtown because it is a half block from Durant's.
