Sow's Ear

Sow's Ear

The Sow's Ear is the "grande dame" of Durango Mountain restaurants and is open nearly all year long. They've been serving the "Best Steaks on the Mountain" since 1986. They also serve a variety of fresh seafood and gourmet fare including small plates for those who prefer taste to portion size. The restaurant offers full bar service, an extensive wine list and children's menu. An appetizer and bar menu including burgers are served in the lounge. The dinning room is one of the prettiest in the Durango area and offers spectacular views of the West Needles Mountains, Engineer Peak and the Hermosa Cliffs. The main dining room holds several oversized tables ideal for larger parties and the alcoves offer more intimate setting when dining with someone special. The Sow's Ear has become a favorite spot for locals to take their out of town guests and to celebrate weddings, birthdays and other special occasions. The dining room opens at 5 pm and guests are seated until 9 pm. Hours are curtailed during the spring and late fall. So please call at 970-247-3527 to check if you are visiting then.
