Good pizza... salad bar can be "tired" at times. We've come several years for Thanksgiving; the turkey dinner can be hit or miss. The atmosphere is homey, lots of warm wood tones. The service was prompt and friendly.

Wow, the atmosphere here was, simply put, FUN!! The decor, large room, and many tables are suitable for social gatherings, and the menu is varied, well-priced. As a vegetarian, there were plenty of options for me: a huge salad bar, ready-made salads, starters, pastas and pizza. I enjoyed a pasta dish and salad...way too full for dessert. We did make...

Zaks was recommended by our hotel so we visited it for an evening meal. The place was fairly busy, but mostly with tourists it seemed. It had a good and varied menu and wide selection of beers. However, when the food arrived it was luke warm and not hot. I had the Salmon Pasta which was actually quite tasty, but... More

After visiting the Arches park we were cruising in Moab to find a restaurant. We found the Zax-restaurant by chance and it was a good choice, having dinner here. The service was quick and friendly, the food was delicious and they had a very good beer. They had a lot of guests, but we had not to wait too long.... More

My wife and I are here during our stay in Moab. The burger was delicious. It was a bit of a wait, but not too much. Very popular spot right in the middle of Moab

We were in Moab for 2 nights and ended up here for dinner both nights. The food was simple and very good. Service was quick for a place so busy. Parking around corner 2 minute walk. Super town. Lots of shopping

We have been to Zax many times over the years and it has always been an enjoyable experience. During this visit we were a group of 10 and had to wait about 30 minutes to be seated. Not really a surprise given it was a busy Friday evening. Most of our group chose to do the Salad/Pizza buffet and all... More

My wife and I stopped in for a couple drinks and a snack. The food was good and the atmosphere was good. Good for families or couples. The pizza buffet wasn't huge, but it looked good. Only gal e it a four because the bartender wasn't pleasant and seemed like he didn't want us there.

We went there after a long day of mountain biking so maybe I was too tired to appreciate all it offered. I was happy with the steak sandwich and a cold beer and the fries were great. Don't remember being overwhelmed by the meal but the place was packed s obviously many do like it.

We stopped in for a lunch after spending a good part of the day at Arches National Park. The food we ordered was very good, but our waitress, Nicole, did not want to be there. The lack of service left a bad taste in our mouths.
