Fodor's Review

Durant's has endured in the same location since 1950 with the same menu and waiters who've been on staff almost as long, making it one of Phoenix's legendary eating establishments. Supreme steaks, chops, and fresh seafood, including lobster tail and oysters Rockefeller, dominate here; when the restaurant once tried to update its menu, regulars protested so furiously the idea was shelved. Durant's is not à la carte, like many Valley steakhouses, which means their entrée prices include soup or salad and a side dish. Those in the know enter through the kitchen door and frequent the Rat Pack–style bar for jumbo martinis fit for ol' Blue Eyes himself.
