When we travel, Ben and I like to try new restaurants and see what the local grub has to offer. We especially enjoy a good brewery! Here are a few of the best places to eat in Moab that have tickled our tastebuds.
Breakfast in Moab
The Moab Diner seems to be the favorite spot for most morning people. The diner always seems to have a line of people out the door waiting to sit in their old school style vinyl booths. From omelets to eggs and toast to breakfast burritos, their reasonably priced breakfast menu is sure to fuel you up for a day of all the adventures Moab has to offer.
Red Cliff Lodge Sunday Brunch
This is one of my favorite breakfast places to go to in Moab. It is more like a breakfast treat. At $14.00 a person ($7.50 per cild) you can enjoy breakfast with a view. Red Cliff Lodge sits on the Colorado River and the red cliffs lining the river make your coffee and breakfast taste that much better. The buffet has a variety of breakfast foods to choose from; omelets, salmon, pancakes, cereal, parfaits, meats, and much more. The omelets are my favorite. The brunch does not run all year. If your headed that way, make sure to check they have it. Red Cliff also has Castle Valley Winery on site too with free tastings.
Last fall, we took a motorcycle trip to Moab. Looking for a quick bite to eat before we headed back to Grand Junction we tried Love Muffin. This breakfast shop seemed trendy and appealed more to the b
ikers and those on the go. They had a variety of breakfast sandwiches and drinks. Ben and I both really enjoyed our breakfast sandwiches. We thought they made one of the better breakfast sandwiches we have ever had.
Lunch in Moab
Milt’s Burger and Shakes
Most days we pack our lunch or snacks because we are out four-wheeling or exploring during lunch time. However, on the days we bring snacks we stop at Milt’s for a milkshake. I always get the peanut butter shake. We haven’t tried their burgers yet but comment each time we new there on how good they look. It’s fun to sit outside under the big tree and drink your shake. Milt’s is tucked back on the side streets, so don’t look for it on Main street.
Dinner in Moab
The Broken Oar
Walking up to the Broken Oar you don’t quote feel like you are in Moab. The restaurant is in a log cabin looking building with a lush green lawn and beautiful hanging baskets hanging on the porch. The atmosphere is fun and inviting. We really enjoyed the sweet potato fries with caramel sauce that came with our meals. They do claim to be the “home of the sweet potato fries.” The only thing we didn’t care for was the plastic patio furniture they had set up on the patio.
I think the Moab Brewery is Ben’s favorite place to eat in Moab. An ice cold beer (from the only microbrewery in town) with a big burger or burrito will hit the spot no matter what! It’s a good idea to get to the brewery early or plan on waiting a while to eat. There is always a line here….so its gotta mean its good right?! They also have gelato and beer-to-go. This is defiantly the place to eat in Moab!
