This was clearly a place that was popular, as there was a wait. I think they had been overwhelmed with a big crowd because the service was slow. They were friendly but not that attentive, and the food was good, but not great. I'd try...More

We stopped in for a late lunch. The Palace is on Main Street, next to the Train Station. They have a nice large outside dining area that is well-shaded, where we ate. The service was a little slow, but the food was well-prepared and very...More

We thought this would be a good place for dinner after a train ride from Silverton. It was next to the train station which was good but that is where the good stopped. The waiter tried hard, but it was tough to overcome the lackluster...More

As others have mentioned, the Palace is convenient, sited right next to the train station. We sat on the patio, which is pleasant and quiet--at least when a train isn't coming by. We had lunch there. I had a chicken salad sandwich and a cup...More

We were not super inspired by the menu but decided to give it a chance. Grilled prawn appetizer was super as were the salads and elk entree. Service was attentive and wines by the glass were good.

This is a great option when you are hungry after riding the Durango to Silverton train. Right next door to the station. Good food and good drinks and real nice patio.

Excellent food and service. Good wine list too. I thoroughly enjoyed my sirloin done medium rare. I've been there before and it is as good as ever and located next to the D&S train station.

We ate outside on the patio on a warm June night. They should really set their to run the other direct...half of the table had the sun in their eyes until after 8PM. Not a great start. This is a steak house. If you aren't...More

The Palace Restaurant features classic American cuisine. Steaks, seafood, pasta, great sauces, homemade breads and desserts. You can elect to dine in our family-friendly Victorian tavern and order from our moderately priced tavern menu or sit in our elegant dining room and order from our fine dining menu. On our summertime patio, both menus are available. Our restaurant is located in a circa-1880 building and is styled with beautiful Victorian furnishings, such as dark woods and Tiffany-style lamps. Our dining room fire place makes for a romantic evening out in the winter and our tavern and patio are "local favorites." From casual to elegant, we provide a very special dining room experience, with great, classic food and a friendly staff. Please join us!
