Wow, was I ever disappointed. I was very excited to check Steamworks out while I was in the area, even though the only beer of their's I've had (the Steam Engine Lager) I was unimpressed with. I'll get the good stuff out of the way--the beer was very good (especially the Third Eye Pale Ale), the food was very good. However, it was the experience there that really brought things down. It began with the hostess, who was fairly rude, and when she finally noticed us waiting, said, "So, are you eating dinner, or what?" We said yes, and she said, "Well, it might be a few minutes." THE PLACE WAS NEARLY EMPTY! The waitress was little better, indifferent, and barely acknowledged anything we said to her. She only stopped by to bring the beer and the food, and we had to wave her over for the check. When we went to the bar to purchase beer glasses, the bartender was also rude and seemed like he'd rather we weren't there. We had planned on having several beers there, but only had one round because of the horrible service. Also, the place didn't seem very clean, the table was sticky, and the windowsill was gummed up with food that had fallen off the table and built up over who knows how long.

This is one of my all time favorite Brew Pubs and I often daydream about the times that I have been there wondering when I might be able to return.
Their beer is very good but their food is even better. Specifically their Cajun Boil! If you are a fan of seafood then you have to have their boil! Crab legs, shrimp, sausage, red potatoes, and corn on the cob all boiled in a spicy broth and dumped onto wax paper on your table! You can even add crawfish for an extra charge. AWESOME!
I have been here probably six or seven times and have also tried their pizzas, burgers, and steaks which were all very good. There are a number of brewpubs in Durango but in my opinion this is the best. Fridays and Saturdays in the summer often have up to an hour wait but that just gives you more time to sample their delicious brews.
Prices were reasonable for a touristy mountain town and they always have a beer special. Last time I was there I tried the Third Eye P.A. which was very good.
This is one not to miss if you ever find yourself in the Four Corners region!

Great place to eat and enjoy a few pints, nice bar and plenty of tables for eating in. Nice big patio to enjoy the crisp, mountain air.
Food has always been better than average, the cajun boil is a must, and now they do it every night. Dump everything right onto your table.
Good selection of entrees, apps, and beers. One great thing about Durango breweries/brewpubs is the exchange of competitors beers. You can always find one or 2 competitors' products in each place.
My wife and I enjoyed this place immensely...she had the Engineer Light lager and I enjoyed several pints of the Rock Hopped Pale Ale.
