Description: 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.

A little pricey, but definitely the best place to eat in town. Great service. Excellent martinis. Fish taco appetizer was great and I don't even particularly like fish. Menu a bit limited unless you are ready to spend 20-25 a dinner in a bar like atmosphere.

Excellent meal, great wine list, fun atmosphere, and great service! I had the pan roasted trout and my mom had the salmon. Both very good.

Zanzibar is a local bar and restaurant with good food and a great atmosphere. Make a reservation to ensure you can get in if you are going to the Mabel for a show...they do get busy on weekends!

Amazing food. Amazing variety of choices of some traditional and some original items. There is a specialty for any type of food lover. Amazing rib eye. I have enjoyed rib eyes all over and this may have been the best I have had... So many varieties! You can find salmon, clams, crab, squid, escargot, (ewww I know) duck, steaks, pasta etc...Price is (roughly) $18-20 a plate for entrees, (roughly $9-10) for bar-type foods (burgers, wraps fish and chips etc). The mash potatoes are to die for. You get to have them blend in 2 types of extras (garlic, cheese, etc)However you definitely get what you pay for. I feel the price is very fair. Highly, highly recommend.

We went on a date night with some friends & were told by another friend to try Zanzibar. We were very excited because since moving back to the area have not been able to find a good place to eat in Menomonie. My food was very good, my husbands was a very small portion & not very good. Our friend ordered sprite & when her glass was half full, the waiter refilled it with water. There was a man at the bar who obviously had too much to drink & was very loud & obnoxious. At one point he even walked up to our table & said some rude things, the bartender laughed. Not sure if we will return.
