“"Good food, great atmosphere on the lake"”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Typical Zorbaz's... food was good, staff was friendly, atmosphere was relaxed, and there was all kinds of different sporting events to watch on the various TV's hanging all around the bar.

“Unique atmosphere, good food”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

If you like Mexican or Italian, this place is good. Be ready for a unique atmosphere. It's family, good times restaurant. We have three kids (17B, 14G, 11B) and they had fun with the free popcorn, arcade and playing by the lake. Be ready though, you order at the bar and they bring your food to you at the tables - no true waiter/waitress service.

“Terrible service, mediocre food”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

I suppose any place that combines Italian and Mexican is asking for trouble. But this place suffers more from miserable customer service than it does from the mediocre food. Here, you order and pay at the bar; a server brings your food when ready. We went with 2 other couples and suffered through at least a 60 minute wait for burritos, spaghetti, and pizza. Several times we went to the bar to inquire and each time were told "soon". When it finally came, a surly waitress plopped it in front of us, giving each of us the wrong food. One of us got nothing. Her unsmiling response was "we'll I could put an order in but were busy is it will be a wait". Right. It will be an even longer wait before I ever return....

“Picture Perfect Setting on Green Lake”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Just returned from a short overnight stay at Green Lake in Spicer, Minn. This is one of the nicest lakes and beaches in Minnesota (impressive water clarity and quality). Adjacent to the public beach in Spicer is Zorbaz on the Lake. This chain of pizza/Mexican restaurants is well known throughout Minnesota lake country. I can't speak for all of the locations, but the one in Spicer definitely ranks as the perfect place to spend a warm, sunny afternoon on the lake in central Minnesota. Zorbaz' beachside deck and bar area offers a quality selection of pizza and other items along with plenty of cold drinks. The casual atmosphere is perfect for families and the offshore boat traffic and beach scene provides a nice offering of scenery. This certainly ranks as one of my favorite outdoor decks in Minnesota. On selected days, the location offers live music and it can get crowded on busy holidays. Patrons can even take advantage of lakeside Adirondack chairs to enjoy a cold one. Excellent experience.

“Zorbaz - Great Food/Atmosphere”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

We were coming back from a basketball tournament at St. Ben's and decided to eat at a sit down restaurant and we found this place off of Hwy. 23. They have a nice outdoor patio off of the beach which includes a beverage cabanna. They serve Mexican food and all different types of pizza. The portions were good as were the prices! A couple wedding parties stopped on there way through, took pictures by the Green Lake and everyone seemed to be having a good time! I like eating outside during the summer, so this was a good choice for us! We had a big appetizer or chicken quesadilla's and our main dishes were a made to order personal size pizza and 2 chicken enchilladas. My chicken enchilladas didn't come out right away and I had to check on it but it was O.K., we were not in a hurry. Besides that everyone received their food pretty fast. We had one beer and a kiddie cocktail with free refills on that, the price was $35.00
