Great Food!

Their lunch menu was terrific, and we really enjoyed the food and ambiance. The staff was polite and very considerate, and the wait was not too terribly long. The meal for two was not terribly expensive, but not inexpensive either. Would go back to eat there when I have money to burn, but gas up... read more

Breakfast and coffee on the terrace is beautiful way to start the day before the day starts to heat up. Mornings from dawn to sunrise are amazing experience.

The bar and dining room are connected. Although dinner is available in the bar, the bartender did not encourage us to stay. Service in the bar was non existent. The dinner was very good and the service was also. Prices were high as expected.

If you are staying any where in Death Valley you have to make a stop at the Furnace Creek Inn and have either lunch or Dinner. We have driven 65 miles from Panamint Springs just to have dinner at the Inn, it is that good!!

A very casual dining hall that has a buffet offered reasonably priced. Not much choice in Death Valley.

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. ..
