After hearing so many reviews, we decided to give this spot a shot. I am so happy to report that we loved the food. My T-bone was cooked to perfection (medium rare). Add the sautéed mushrooms for a great flavor addition. This restaurant has an old feel to it. Seemed to be busy for the entire evening dinner rush. This... More

Reasonable prices and good to the point we went twice in two days. Excellent food great staff, busy but still pretty quick with service. If hungry and needing a good meal - one should go there.

We were waiting to save this place for the end of the week, as a treat to ourselves. It did not disappoint. The atmosphere of the place was very Southwestern/Colorado-ian. Lots of Native American or old West type of decorations and pieces of history adorned the walls. The cornbread that they start with you is a nice warm-up to the... More

Dropped by for dinner. Got the New York strip, mashed potatoes, and mac and cheese. Everything was delicious. Service was awesome thanks to Bailey :-)

My first steak arrived barely warm on the plate and had a slightly rancid taste to it. Sent it back and, after a long wait (my dining companions had finished their meals by then), steak number 2 arrives cooked rare instead of medium rare and was so tough I gave up after one bite. The poor waiter did his best,... More

One of the best restaurants in Durango. Everything about Ore House is first class - the service, location, ambience, Rye Old Fashioned, dinner, etc. You will be pleased. We recommend the Surf-Surf & Turf, the salmon over risotto & asparagus, and kids all beef hot dog and fresh cut fries. However, we are rather confident everything on the menu is... More

Have always had excellent service and food has been outstanding on every visit. Steaks and sides are amazing and the drinks match. Reservations highly recommended.

Hadn't been there in couple years. Was invited as guest so I went. Locals avoid this place with good reason. Ala Carte pricing and service is absurd. Baked potato came more than 5 minutes after steak? Delivery of appetizers was random, brought by couple of different servers. No cracked pepper for salad or potato? Can't get lemon with water, humm.... More

Wonderful night. The seafood items are also on point. Served family style with side dishes large enough to share. Ask for Taibi.
