Urethane Holds up better.

Down side is it's harder to get off to refinish 10 years later.

Urethane. It lasts far longer and doesn't have to be redone every year like Varnish. Varnish turns yellow over time, Urethane doesn't. It takes a lot of skill and patience to do a good varnish job without runs. Urethane goes on easier and is less likely to run and it dries faster. Frankly I think Urethane looks better.
