One of a kind location

Great view, excellent service and terrible food,(breakfast made with no thought or consideration towards freshness or flavor). Apparently operating on their long standing reputation. The price of breakfast for two was close to $50.00, a splurge we will never repeat.

Since the dinner was a bit expensive, we decided to breakfast at the Inn at Furnace Creek. The service was amazingly good and the food was just fine, not as good as the glorious view but good, nevertheless. We were glad we'd chosen to eat there. The Inn itself is very interesting and the dining room and lobby have some... More

My wife and I were staying at the Ranch (the less expensive option at Furnace Creek) and decide to "upgrade" for dinner. The decor at the Inn is exceptional and the service was likewise flawless. However this is, after all, a restaurant and the food is how it should be judged. Unfortunately, on that score, we were quite disappointed. I... More

We ate here twice while we visited. The dinners were spendy and not that special. The breakfast was very good.

We had reservations during Presidents weekend which was also Valentine's day. The place was fully booked. Service throughout the park was slow everywhere and this place was no exception. However the food was well prepared and very good. Yes prices are high but they do make an effort to have high quality food. We shared filet and shrimp price fix... More

My wife and I spent a couple of nights in Death Valley and decided to have dinner here as a treat on New Year's Day. This is truly a unique and historic place but the dinner itself was underwhelming. My wife had fish (salmon, I believe) which she liked okay. I had a ribeye that was decidedly thinnish, tough, and... More

I guess it was too much to ask for - being blown away by the rugged beauty of the park and the historic inn i had high execrations for the restaurant. It is good but it is no better than a very good restaurant in your hometown. The outside tables are great for cocktails and then the dining room with... More

We have been staying at the Inn every President's Day weekend for 4 years. This restaurant is poorly managed. Last year we waited an hour and a half for food. This year we went down and they wouldn't seat us because there was a problem with the cook. This is one of the busiest weekends in the park, they should... More

Fantastic view and tasty food. Good way to experience the Inn if not staying there. The ambience is great - definitely feel like you're in an oasis. Love the temperatures of winter - lets you really enjoy the place. Had two different kinds of omelets - Mediterranean and Southwest. Both had wonderful blends of flavor. Take the time to see...

Less than half the tables were filled the weekday morning we decided to have breakfast here. We were seated outside; two other outside tables were occupied. We waited 10 minutes for coffee to be offered, another 35 minutes for a server to take our order and 15 minutes for the elusive, long awaited breakfast to arrive. Clearly unacceptable service from...
