Established in 1972, the Ore House is one of Durango Colorado’s oldest and finest restaurants, with an atmosphere that truly reflects the essence and history of Southwestern Colorado. Specialties are steak, seafood and spirits. The Ore House Restaurant offers a full bar with an excellent wine cellar and is considered to be the area’s best Steakhouse. The Ore House’s food and beverages are created by a team of chefs that are passionate about sourcing fresh, wild, seasonal, regional, and responsibly harvested ingredients. Featuring antibiotic and hormone free local beef, sustainable wild caught seafood, free-range poultry, and farm to table ingredients. Our Bar and Kitchen staff prides themselves in making everything to order from scratch. Although the cuisine is focused around the steakhouse concept we offer numerous vegetarian options and something for all ages and appetites.
