Good for: Bar Scene
Dining options: After-hours, Dinner
Description: Conveniently located in historic downtown Durango, the Embassy is a local favorite. The pub is authentic Irish - every piece of furniture, every picture, every glass was shipped directly from Ireland. So if you’re wanting to take a trip to the Emerald Isle without leaving town, stop on by. Enjoy a 20-ounce Imperial Pint of Guinness, a tasty serving of our famous fish and chips, or listen to a traditional Irish jam.

We stopped by on Friday evening at 7:45 for dinner. They were out of my husbands first two dinner choices (Shepards pie and pot roast). Then he asked for two other items and they were out of them. This went on and he finally ended up having a boring chicken sandwich and I had a salad. We were just too tired to go anywhere else. The food was good but not what we went into an Irish pub to have. The service was OK.

Went for happy hour before heading put to dinner. Our server recommended the local milk stout and it was delicious. We always make a point to stop in whenever we are in Durango.

Wanted Fish and Chips, and we saw they had it on special. Since we are elderly, we asked the waitress about the portion size. Since it was quite large, we opted to share it. 20 minutes later we still didn't have our order. The couple who had just been seated next to us, placed their order, and the waitress then brought out our order, placed it on another table, served the other couple their beer, and left us waiting for our food. We left!!!

This is pretty close to an authentic Irish Pub with rich dark wood bar with Gaelic sayings carved above. The food is very good and the portions are huge. You really could share entrees and both be full but you will want to try more than one thing. The fish and chips are excellent, as is the cottage pie and the cob salad is loaded and simply enormous.
Service was outstanding. The locals are very friendly and welcoming.
Thought it was a bit pricey till we saw the portion sizes. Based on that, its a value. Well worth it.

The food was just OK for me and my wife. I had the Bangers & Mash. The bangers were overcooked and dry. My wife had a hamburger and it was just "OK".

The beer was good though - Guinness and Blank-and-Tans were tasty.

It has a cool atmosphere inside to where it really feels like an Irish pub. I would go there again for drinks, but not for their food.
