It took over an hour to get our food and the food ended up mediocre to poor. Granted my husband, daughter and I are foodies, but I was hoping for better.

Zanzibar is a very unique restaurant for a small town. It isn’t bar food nor typical supper club. It has an inventive menu that changes depending on what is available. Every time I am in Menomonie I dine here. Every dish I have ordered is...More

I visited for an early dinner on a weekday. I was promptly greeted. I was expecting a better restaurant atmosphere based on other reviews. This is more a bar atmosphere. They had a very limited selection of vodka, but seem to have more whisky. Interesting...More

This is our "go to" restaurant when we want a great meal in Menomonie. We have never been disappointed here. Drove up from Florida this time. Just go and enjoy. Easy decision.

Deep red walls and rich hardwood accents create an inviting and relaxing setting for an exciting, eclectic meal at Zanzibar. The menu contains numerous original contemporary American dishes with world influences. Two of the most popular items, lahvosh, is an Armenian cracker bread topped with a five-cheese blend, veggies, and a variety of meats and Meatloaf Mignon (this isn’t your mama’s meatloaf). The bar can mix up hand-craft cocktails, over 65 kinds of martinis, and offers an unique wine list. The menu is very vegetarian friendly (any meal can be altered) and contains over 100 gluten-free options. They also create their own spice blends that are available to take home. Reservations are recommended.
