When people ask me where do I go for a nice dinner out for steak, this is at the top of my list. EVERYTHING here is fantastic! The filet mignon is outstanding and I always want more after its gone. The staff is delightful, courteous...More

Two nights in a row I ate here. The reason is because it was so good! The fact that they can make an incredible prime rib with atomic horseradish on their shrimp cocktail that rivals the best shrimp cocktail I've ever had at St Elmos...More

The lady that sat next to me on the plane had raved about Durant's, when I had asked her recommendation for restaurants local to Phoenix. Typically, I hit the chain's, like Ruth's Chris, or Capital Grille, or Oceanaire, or any of the upper end places...More
