The most scenic dining experience in the area is 17 miles upstream from Moab at the Sorrel River Ranch, beside the Colorado River, with views of La Sal Mountains, and the red-rock spires and towers surrounding the ranch. This fine-dining restaurant follows a farm-to-table ethic and its seasonal menu changes regularly; look for local options like buffalo, pheasant, lamb, and trout as well as vegetarian entrées. Even if you don't splurge on a full wine dinner, know that
the wine list is high quality and fairly priced. For lunch (which is served until 5 pm) you can sit out on the River Deck, for uninterrupted views. Reservations are recommended.
