Several locally owned restaurants in Moab offer fine dining using locally grown produce and meat when available, and excellent libations. Our top pick for fine dining in Moab is The River Grill Restaurant, a Forbes Travel Guide Recommended restaurant located within the Four-Star Sorrel River Ranch Resort & Spa. Classic American dining in a refined, yet casual setting is what you'll find here: think rib-eye steaks, buffalo filets, seafood, soups and housemade breads. The flavors here are as fresh as can be, since many herbs, fruits and vegetables are sourced straight from the resort's onsite garden.
Should you decide to venture away from the Sorrel River Ranch property, a few destinations favored by Moab locals include Jeffrey's Steakhouse and Ghost Bar, a steakhouse that has an extensive wine list; The Desert Bistro, home to meaty fare like beef, pork, lamb and fish, plus eclectic options like elk and rabbit sausage (plus pasta dishes and vegetarian offerings); Buck's Grill House, an American and Southwest dining room that offers similar game options, plus burgers and salads; Sunset Grill, a cliffside restaurant with stunning sunset views; and Sabaku Sushi, a Japanese joint that uses fresh fish flown in daily from Hawaii for its inventive rolls that combine traditional flavors with Southwestern flair.
