Moab Brewery's menu has a large variety to please any diner; from meat lovers to vegans. The interior is roomy, can accommodate large groups, and televisions in the bar keep the sporting types happy by broadcasting games. Don't let the name "Brewery" fool you into thinking this place is for those of drinking age only; the menu has choices for children; so yes, it's family oriented as well.
Even though the parking area out front was packed, we were seated immediately by our friendly hostess. Our server, Luke, promptly took drink orders; we were waiting for another of our party, so he gave us space until we were ready to order.
Two of us ordered the Fish Tacos; I really like the way they are prepared here, but this time they changed one item...the way the jicama was cut. Usually it is in strips and the clean, fresh taste of this vegetable can be tasted; instead it was in cubes and was tasteless. While this aspect was disappointing, the balance of the fish tacos was still very good. It came with a side salad of generous proportion and vegetarian chili (medium heat & spice); you definitely don't walk away hungry after a meal at Moab Brewery. By the way, the fish tacos come with sliced black olives and diced tomatoes too, but I left those off to keep from overwhelming the main ingredient, the fish!
The other diners in our group ordered Pistachio Chicken (spicy), Honey Almond Chicken (sweet and crunchy), and New York Strip Steak (grilled to perfection). Lets just say that the only things left on the plates were the utensils; it was all that good!

We didn't order dessert from the menu, but saved our sweet tooth appetites for the luscious selection of Gelato. If you save your receipt and show it, you get a discount; but even if that's all you enjoy, go to the Moab Brewery for this Italian treat. We tried out "Tiramisu" and "Cappuccino Crunch", both were to die for!
Moab Brewery is open for lunch and dinner; definitely a great place to experience while visiting the Moab area; or a place for locals to gather at and watch the game.
