Lake country legend

The food is good and it is a fun place if you like unique decor. Zorbaz is a must to visit in the lake country.

We enjoyed the pizza, great crust, very cheesy! The beer selection is outstanding. The Long Island Ice Teas were also very tasty. Next time back will try the nachos.

We drove an hour to get here. Pizza is average. Eat with flies landing on my food & in my drink. Girl in gift shop was snotty & rude. Won't be back. Cute looking restaurant, but I suggest just browsing & having a drink. Bar staff was nice. Eat elsewhere.

This "fixture" of Detroit Lakes culture has been for a very long time. It was really good, is really good and I don't see it changing. If you are in DL, you have to go. This is in the heart of the "lakes area" in Northern Minnesota. So it is, what it is. Good causal dining with a great beer... More

We went in with a group of children and adults. It's a "seat yourself" atmosphere. From the moment we arrived, it was chaos! We almost left (wish we would have), but found a group of tables together. You have to go to the bar to order drinks. You order your food at the table. Everything is way overpriced for the... More

You can't go to DL and not go to Zorbaz! Just a fun place to hang out. The pizza was better than we expected. Fun atmosphere. You need to order at one of the bars and they will bring out your food. Great beer selection, only complaint was that the bartenders didn't know much about the beer. We wanted to... More

This is a fun place to enjoy great pizza and Mexican food, along with visiting with locals and tourists alike. It has an upbeat atmosphere, often local musicians or perhaps trivia night. It's a fun experience, all seasons. Super busy in the summer, so best not to be on a tight schedule if heading there during that time.

This place was recommended by the hotel we stayed at. It was great. Now it was crowded and a bit noisy, but no problem. It sits right across the street from the lake so the location is perfect. We started with the nachos and they were huge. This would have been enough for me and my wife, but we also... More

Having grown up in ND, now living in AZ, my trips home can be centered on nostalgic places to visit, and eat. Zorbaz has only enhanced in time. This is a Minnesota staple and a place I visit on each trip back! The atmosphere is perfect lake side dining. Great draft beer selection and yummy margaritas. The macho nachos are... More
