Great dinner at the lodge restaurant

We enjoy visiting the lodges in the national parks and always try to schedule dinner in the lodge. The service was excellent and we enjoyed the banter with the waiter and the young lady who kept the water glasses full. The menu choices were good and our food was very good. The bill can add up if... read more

We absolutely loved the Dining room at the Furnace Creek Inn. The speciality drinks (especially the Prickly Pear Margarita), appetizers and entrees were without equal. The setting is elegant and you feel like you've drifted back to a more simple, lovely day...as in the 1930s. The Dining Room manager was courteous and friendly, even providing us helpful hints on our... More

We went here for a Sunday morning breakfast after seeing the sunrise at Zabriesky Point. Well, who could say no to good food after an amazing sunrise experience! Food was impressively unique – coming from northeastern region I've never had cactus before, but the southwest style omelette was strangely delicious, which is an unexpected match with the death valley view...

Last week my husband and I had dinner at The Inn with twenty-two other Road Scholar (formerly Elderhostel) travelers, and we were all impressed with the quality of both the food and the service. A fresh green salad was served as soon as we sat down. I requested cruets of oil and balsamic vinegar, which were brought to the table... More

Its a very beautiful restaurant and because there are not many options to eat in Death valley, we went there. Food was ok. We ordered Triple grain vegetable burger, turkey sandwich. Both tasted ok, not great. Its not very expensive. Location is great. Servers were ok.

My husband and I had lunch and truly enjoyed the food. Our waiter, Tim, was very accommodating. He was so good we went back the next morning before leaving Death Valley. Although a bit pricey, the food there is so much better than at the Ranch, where we stayed. We sat outside for lunch with the beautiful view and quiet;... More

Was staying at the Ranch, but booked the Inn for dinner. Had to book 6:15, as 6:30 was fully booked. At 7 the restaurant was still half full. The service at the bar outside is very good. Restaurant service was quite good, but as it got more crowded it slowed somewhat. The food was very good and exceeded my expectations,... More

We visited Death Valley today and it rained the entire time. We stopped at the Inn for lunch. It could not have been more pleasant. Our server, Brittany, was delightful. She steered us towards spectacular bean and bacon soup, and an excellent BLT and avocado sandwich. The soup was so good we requested and got the recipe. For desert we... More

Expensive, but of course that's what you get in Death Valley. Our servers (2 mornings) were fine but the maitre d wasn't impressed with us when we asked for a better table than the one he showed us to in an almost empty room. The bacon is to die for.

Went here for Brunch New Years Day. How fun. The food is good...nothing extra ordinary, but top notch. Brunch was omelet bar, gp fresh fruits and fresh baked treat....odd that they had salmon and cream cheese but not bagels? Service was terrific. Staff all very knowledgeable about the history of the inn, which made it fun. Prime rib good, baguette... More
