We are staying next door to this restaurant (The Baymont-Great family hotel!) and decided to go for dinner, and were so happy with our experience that we are going back tonight. The food is fabulous, priced reasonably for the quality but is on the med-upper range. We sat outside and was very impressed by the wait staff. They are closing... More

Hey Carrie H! YES! We are remodelling, hopefully it will only take a few days, and it will be BEAUTIFUL! The super cool artists from Triassic Stone in Moab are designing our bar and we can't wait to see it, check it out when you come back through! That's awesome that you enjoyed our food so much, soon we will... More

So it's connected to a hotel and next to another hotel, so they have a clientele from the visitors but plenty of locals. More of a sports bar but a strange room set up and very few seats in the shade The quality of the food is good, though, and the waitstaff is nice. Strange that the bartenders had to... More

Ello, kcdenman! Yes, we do have some really awesome people on our team, and they're super fun to work with. Glad you enjoyed the fish tacos - I like to think it's the love in our salsa that does it!

We tried this place on recommendation so someone must like it. We walked in to find no air conditioning. I don't know whether this is temporary or permanent feature. We would have left there and then but there is an outside terrace and it was a pleasant evening. Unfortunately the terrace faces a noisy roadway. The main cooking seems to... More

Was recommended this restaurant by the hotel I was staying at next door. I thought the Anasazi Burger sounded a little cliché when ordering (everything in town is called Anasazi-this, Mesa Verde-that), but it was a very tasty burger. My girlfriend ordered a chicken dish (don't remember what it was) and she said it delicious.

We nearly didn't go here because it was a pub but the Holiday Inn where we were staying gave us a free drink coupon so we thought we would have a look. We were pleased we did - it was so good we went back the second night and had another burger. The burgers appeared to be hand made rather... More

We were staying at the next door Holiday Inn Express and migrated here for our free drink. We really enjoyed the atmosphere, the friendly and efficient service and, best of all, the burgers - truly the best we have ever tasted. The drinks weren't too bad either. We enjoyed it so much that we returned the following evening, unfortuantely our... More

We ate here twice, on an overnight stop to and from Sedona. Both times the service was top notch and the food exciting and tasty. They are doing the grilling OUTSIDE, even in winter! The Grilled Romaine Lettuce (yes, LETTUCE) appetizer was so special we got it both times. Also loved the Quesadillas, House Chili and Big Salads. Oh -... More

Given the snow and freezing conditions, we chose a short walk to get to this Pub from the Holiday Inn Express. Food was passable and the service a bit diffident.

Koko's grills their food. They have great service and drinks at the bar. A lively place with great servers and bartenders. Tell Casey Jim sent you! Just wish they opened for lunch!

We stayed at the Holiday Inn next door to KoKo's friendly pub and it is that. A local scene mostly. If you like a brightly lit bar, stark wooden tables, and noise this is your kind of place. Forget the stuff all over the floors and the semi clean towel wiping your table before you sit down,the locals are having... More

Good Morning, seashell295! Yes, we had some locals that night, there was quite a football game on at the time! (go broncos!). I'm very happy to hear that you found us all friendly and nice! Brownie points for that! However, since I believe that I personally cooked your food that night I must apologize! I wish you had said something... More
