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.”

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!”

The Bistro offers excellent nightly features as well as their main menu, which includes a gorgonzola crusted beef tenderloin. Don't forget to save room for Dessert. Amazing in house desserts offered. ”
