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.

We got food at Zax on our first night in Moab. Even though they forgot our soup on our order, the food was good. The place was busy and has some really cool photos of arches and other art on the walls that highlight the beauty of the area.

After a big day in Arches National park we decided to dine at Zax's. Restaurant was very busy but they managed to find a table for two. We ordered a pizza and salad. Both were good and very filling. A couple of beers and two very good margarita's finished our night perfectly. The service was good but this is a... More

Simple basic American Family dinner food with reasonable Steaks and side dishes. Tasty dessert apple clubber and ice cream. Think twice before choosing salad + soup + pizza buffet deal as it seems quality is not at it's top option.

Located in the center of town. A fun kind of pub atmosphere. The service was fine and the waiter nice. The food was good enough. Seemed like a reliable and descent food choice for the Moab.

We spent Thanksgiving camping in Moab and came into town to have TG dinner at Zaks (a longtime favorite). The restaurant was packed, but only had a 30 minute wait. The food was pretty good considering how many people they must have served that night, but what we'll remember for years to come is our server, Tara. She absolutely made... More

Centrally located, good menu. Pricey - seems popular with tourists and locals. Pizza menu is typical
