big bonus here is that it is open off season. We were here with friends during the December holiday. It is a big open pub kind of space. Friendly and helpful staff. Has an open kitchen/pizza oven. Has your typically broad beer hall type of menu; lots of sandwiches, some pasta, many pizzas, a salad bar. They have a large... More

Got seated immediately. Got our beer right after that. We both had burgers & they were very good. The food we saw going by to other people all looked good. No more pricier than any other place in a resort town

Got an excellent Greek pizza here one evening. Several days later I had an even better burger for lunch. Loved the soft ciabatta roll and the mushrooms and bleu cheese. Fries were battered and spicy. Service was very fast and friendly. Definitely worth a visit.

I had dinner at Zax on Wednesday. This happened to be the night of their Pizza Buffet Special. I wasn't really looking for a buffet, but was sold on it as the pizza looked really good. The salad bar is a little limited, but had enough to keep my interest. They had two soups, both of which were quite good.... More

Staying at Sorrel River Ranch and taking all our meals there, we were craving pizza and decided to try Zax's in Moab. The hostess experience was weird, but we got seated okay. The salad bar looked awful so we skipped that. However, our pizzas were fantastic. The atmosphere is absent except for the colorful cowboys and cowgirls we observed.

I did not care for the quality of the food served. Staff is friendly and accommodating, but the food is not good at all. I is edible, but not much more than that.

Pro...pleasant waitress Cons...unpleasant hostess. We walked in at 10:55 a.m. and requested a table. The hostess said they weren't open for 5 minute but she supposed she could seat us. Don't unlock the door if you don't want customers before 11:00! Food was mediocre. Salad bar limited... Not even the usual cucumbers, tomatoes, bell peppers, hard boiled eggs. Chicken noodle...

I had one of the best Salmon Caesar salads I have ever had. And the Bartender, George, was very informative of the area and gave us great tips on what to do.

Zax is pretty much in the center of Moab, and is always busy... and it should be. Very informal and very friendly, noisy, crowded, and very fun. Great waitstaff, excellent casual dining, and great atmosphere. Not the place to go for a quiet candlelight dinner, but and excellent combination of bar and restaurant.
