The restaurant dates back to 1972 when the town was just beginning to create a modern culture. Though you can go to museums to check out Durango’s town history, Ore House offers a unique vibe that really embodies the Southwestern Colorado culture.
Filled with intricate murals and artifacts, the restaurant is not just an amazing place to dine, but also a big part of Durango.
Historic Steakhouse Restaurant in Durango
Voted as the “No. 1 Steakhouse” by locals, Ore House doesn’t disappoint. Featuring scrumptious entrees and an ever-evolving cocktail menu, it’s perfect for family gathering and date nights.
