my family an I spent a week in moab and had a wonderful time, On the last night we were there we went to the Broken Oar restaurant on the advice of our hotels recomendaton. Upon calling to see if we needed a reservation we were informed that we didnt need one and to just come on in, when we got there, we were quite surprised to see a log cabin type building inwhich the restaurant is in, once insde it was a very open but cozy place, that smelled of BBQ and other foods, we were greeted at the front door by the hostess and had our choice of seating in the dining room or out on the deck we chose the deck for it was nice outside.
our waitress was very friendly and very helpfull with questions about the menu, I had the cowboy steak which was cooked perfectly, and my wife had the medallions which were equally good, the rest of the family had ribs, and sanwiches which they said were good also. after talking to our waitress liz i was informed that the restaurant had recently opened, after being closed for a couple of years. but that it was doing good.
The broken Oar is a little off the beaten path but is definately worth checking into our overall experience there was by far one of the best one s that we had as far as dining goes while we were in the area.
We were terribly upset and finally had to leave. We were seated and waited and waited with no one coming to our table. We then noticed that two tables seated after we were had been waited on and had drinks on their tables. At that point we got up and left! You could not pay me enough to return! Service is horrible and will never know about the food!
Recommended by the hotel, but not sure why. The food was very ordinary, nothing really fresh as the salmon was an obviously frozen patty as was the chicken. The meals were prepared okay, but it would be easy to do better for the money.
