Nice stop for lunch

We stopped for lunch at this restaurant halfway through our visit of death Valley and we did not regret our decision . The restaurant is quite nice and the view over the desert is great . We even saw a roadrunner on our way out . The menu offers a good choice of salads and sandwiches and we did... read more

Excellent wine list and an interesting menu full of delightfula nd unusual dishes that did not disappoint. Our waiter was well- read and experienced to 5 star standard. Dress code was more casual than smart casual

I read all the bad reviews here regarding the food, so I asked at the front desk and was told that they have a new cook now, and he is wonderful, the food is great. The old cook is gone. They were definitely correct. Beautiful dining room. Great waiters and waitresses.

In the middle of the desert, this place rocks. Nearly everything is brought in, so our expectations were not high, but it was a delight, service excellent, ambiance sweet. Highly recommended. ..

We were really looking forward to the special Mother's Day brunch they put on every year. We had been there the past two years and it was, to say the least, AMAZING. The food was good this year. I'm not knocking the food, however, it was set up a lot differently and the choices were fewer and they raised the... More

Just want to say the quality from server staff to chief was top notch. Jessica was our server. She was very professional and had a lot of great things to tell us. Food was really tasty although there needed to be some middle of the road priced entrees. What a nice touch w home made truffles for after dinner. Again,... More

I had read a lot of terrible reviews about dining at the Inn. Not sure if it was lowered expectations or the absolutely horrible food at the Ranch, but we were pleasantly surprised by the food at the Inn. The drinks beforehand which we planned to have at sunset, only to be foiled by a sand storm, were only so-so... More

Wilted lettuce for dinner and untoasted english muffin for breakfast at ridiculously high prices. To be avoided at all costs.

Our group of six ate here twice during our stay at the more motel-like accommodations about a mile away. At dinner, Gary was our server, and he was superb, offering excellent suggestions for wine and providing outstanding service overall -- when the kitchen was a little slow in getting our entrees to the table, he came out with individual dishes...

Probably the worst meal I have ever had. The shrimp cocktail's presentation was horrendous. We had also ordered the soup which was way too salty. The fish was pretty bad as well. There was one thing with pork that was so bad, it was literally inedible. The staff however, were very nice. Hopefully, they get rid of the cook soon.
