Italian Southwestern Gastro Pub

Zax reminded me very much of a gastro pub, with Italian food and a tex/mex theme to the décor. Bar is off to the left, restaurant to the right. Salad bar was ok -- not a lot of variety there. Menu was eclectic, with a southwestern theme. Service is good, prices a little higher than we expected... read more

Liked the outside seating area. The food was good but not great. Service was good at times and lacking other times.

Ate there literally every night and always found a tasty dish cooked exactly to my request and attentive staff that remembered us each night. Prices were fine (we found all of Moab to be on the high side of pricing) and the portions were great. Central location in town and would recommend to anyone visiting the area.

We were hoping to have a good dinner, but the pizza bar was pricey and only average. We got there before the rush, so that was a plus and the staff was friendly

Zax has an all you can eat pizza bar-salad-soup. Great pizza bar. I love their crust. Great variety on the pizzas offered. The restaurant was packed, but the pizza bar never lulled for pizza. The cooks kept right up with the crowd. The salad bar has a nice assortment. They could have used spinach however. The soup was okay, not... More

The food isn't anything spectacular but it serves the purpose for lunch and dinner after a day of activity. There's an all you can eat pizza, soup and salad bar as well as regular menu items like burgers, steak, sandwiches and such. We are here twice on a 5 day trip for its convenience and options.

Our server, Heidi, was Funny and thoughtful. We had the spinach artichoke dip and it was really yummy. We also tried the pulled pork sandwich with crispy steak fries and the decadent Mac and cheese with bacon and green chiles. The margaritas weren't too shabby either, but a little pricey for the size of the glasses.We had a little bit... More

Went there for dinner with a couple friends. We had ribs, fish n chips, and chicken parmesan, all which we thoroughly enjoyed. The beer from the local breweries was really good as well.

We have been there several time and have always had a good time. The pizza bar was a hit with part of the family and the others loved their burgers. The service was a little slow but we were satisfied.
