This is primarily a bar that also serves pizza, burgers and hot dogs. Restaurants are expensive at Furnace Creek resort, so we opted for buying a pizza here for dinner not wanting to spend so much for a so-so meal. Lucky for us the pizza tasted good.

8 of us went into the Corkscrew Saloon for dinner and a couple of drinks on 3!st May this year. Service at the bar was great with the staff being pleasant and efficient. Trouble for me was with the food. Like I said I was in a party of 8 and whilst the rest of my group had acceptable meals... More

The pizza comes in one size.. large. The blend of four cheeses and the addition of chopped basil makes this pizza mouth watering.

Service was the worst we experienced in the Park. My burger was good enough, but wife's veggie burger on a nine grain roll with sunflower sauce came with a stale white roll and no sauce. When we asked for the sauce we were brought what tasted like Thousand Islands dressing.

Sounds strange but the pizza at the Corkscrew Saloon is among the best American pizza I have eaten. I am Italian American and have pizza in Italy (way different) and pizza in the US and Canada. This is at the top of the US pizzas...very surprising.

Our server was friendly and helpful and the food was OK. My husband really enjoyed the beer and basketball game and waitress didn't even cringe when I ordered hot tea. We ordered a veggie burger and a half-pounder. Both were well cooked and served with crisp fresh lettuce and tomato. Pricey for a burger but given the price of gas... More

We weren't expecting much, but we ended up very happy with the Corkscrew. It's a nice place to unwind with a beer and some fries after a long day of hiking. The Badwater Ale on tap is excellent. The food is fine--nothing terribly special, but certainly much better than they could get away with given the relative lack of competition.... More

Enjoyed the meal cooked just the way I asked for It. little short on vegetables maybe I should have ordered them as a side. Not sure what the manager was doing making some sort of minor drama in the bar.Bit of a amateur performance reminded me of Basil Faulty. Fun overall atmosphere.

Like everyone else says, there is not a whole lot of choice when staying in Furnace Creek. We opted for this place, because it was the most casual and relaxed feeling. The steakhouse sounded like too much food and was too pricey for our mood. The other place didn't sound bad, but looked too much like a Denny's or something... More

Went to get piza Togo. Children not allowed to wait in bar. Pizza quick, but good. Added 15% gratuity to bill, despite being to go. Initially refused to remove from bill, saying that how else do you think they get anyone to work especially as you Europeans don't tip.
