Good service, good food....simple dishes. We liked it and would go again the next time we are there. The biscuits were homemade and one day we had it alone and the other two days we had it with gravy. Yum!

Just what you'd expect from a small-town diner. Decent food at a decent price with generally friendly and fun staff.

My husband and I ate breakfast here at the recommendation of the Sagewater Spa owners. The food was delicious and inexpensive (we ate a lot, too), and the atmosphere is very charming. We'll definitely be back!

My wife and I caught Lunch and Breakfast there in October. Both meals were excellent! Down home cooking and service. Delicious hot food. The menu is huge! The prices were very reasonable. I've visited the desert 3 times a month for the past 29 years and the atmosphere of the Sidewinder Bar and grill reminds me of that nostalgic era... More

We went there for breakfast and the food quality is very good. It is not a fancy restaurant - old fashioned but great price value for breakfast. The servers were friendly and portions just the right size.

Our server Sherry couldn't do enough for us. Best hash browns we've had on this trip. Well worth a slight detour en route to LA.

Great staff and a hearty breakfast made our 3 visits (compliments of our hotel) a nice way to get ready for golf. The food is fresh, hot and very tasty! A bit of funky old school Desert Hot Springs!
