I'm not exaggerating when I say that the Ore House in Durango could be one of the finest restaurants we've ever visited. The food, delivery, wait staff, and decor were all outstanding and definitely a place to visit when you want something superb. We were...More

One of our favorite places to go...food and service are always excellent. And on birthdays, they take the % in the person's age for their meal. We had the Chateaubriand, lobster tails, with a side of mashed potatoes and mushrooms. So delicious!! And the perfect...More

Shannon found a way for my wife and I to celebrate our Anniversary, and Shawn pointed us to all the right selections of drinks, entrees and deserts. What a memorable dinner - number 1 in our 50 years of marriage!

This restaurant offered an incredible tasting steak with side dishes that were just as good. Not your everyday restaurant (because it is quite pricey), but when you are ready to treat yourself, this is the place to come. Friendly staff and great atmosphere.

We had dinner at the Ore House and I thought it was overpriced for what you get. I had a filet and it was good but everything was a la carte and the price added up pretty quick. We had dinner the following night around...More
