Restaurant
“This is the classic brewpub and always busy. However, the service is pretty fast and the food reliable. One special note is, you can buy COLD beer here to go. THE ONLY place in Moab to do so as Utah liquor laws are strict. ”

“Really a delicious place for lunch or dinner I recommend dinner. No difference just better as a dinner spot to me, big portions slightly on the higher side of price but well worth it. I’m a pesto guy! And literally some of the best I’ve had.. personal, none Italian opinion. ”

Cafe

“One of our favorite breakfast places! Also a delicious lunch option. Fun fact—Lisa used to work here! Vegan and gluten-free friendly. Obviously the muffins are a must try! Get there before 10am for the best selection. Some of our other favorites on the menu: the Wescial and the Rooster burritos, Patatas Bravas, Huevos Rancheros (spicy!), the Shaka bowl, the Banh Mi sandwich and Rasa Club sandwich (both also delicious as a salad!).”

Bar
“Moab's original bar. Pretty sure this place convinced John Ford and John Wayne to move their film production to Moab since there was no liquor in Monument Valley out there on the Navajo reservation.”

Grocery or Supermarket
“This is where we shop. Its a smaller market, but we like the size and find everything we need. There are plenty of organic options and it has more of a local feel. ”

American Restaurant

“The nicest restaurant in Moab. On the more expensive side of dining for the area but well worth the price.”

Museum
“City museum where geology, paleontology & archeology collections join pioneer & mining exhibits. For being a small museum, it is packed with neat artifacts, and had interactive displays for children as well as adults. Clean, friendly staff, but could use a new facility to better meet their needs, as well as better labeling and a better flow of the displays. Overall though we enjoy it very much!”
