Highly overpriced

The restaurant is a buffet by day and a dining room at night. Except they don't do anything to make it look fancy. $45 steaks taste & look like $10 steak. This place is so overpriced it's crazy. Eat hamburgers at the saloon or drive 20 minutes to stovepipe wells. We had breakfast at the buffet... read more

The cafe was closed when we went by, we had the bad food at the Saloon the day before, so we reluctantly tried the buffet. For $16.15 it was cheaper than an entree at the Saloon, so it seemed like a good deal for the area. Boy was that a bad decision, there's not much to choose from, but the... More

Service was fine and the employees were nice. The food (lunch buffet) was basically the same as what we ate out of our backpacks, though. Mostly cold, few selection, all from frozen or a can. A family of 4 is over 60$, so save the money for a good buffet in Vegas and plan one more meal from the pack.

We were with friends and stopped for dinner. The salad bar was a mess, nothing was restocked, not well maintained at all. They had a water issue so wine was served in plastic cups and you couldn't flush the toilets in the restrooms, not a fine dining experience to say the least. Should have eaten in the saloon.

This was so bad it will almost certainly become our family measuring stick for inedible food and poor service. Our 13 year old son went on ahead while we were putting a load of washing on. He's vegetarian and knew that the classic American breakfast choices might not suit him so he asked the hostess if he could have a... More

I was so appalled with the condition of this restaurant, that I felt compelled to actually create a Tripadvisor account in order to warn other travelers of this place. $16 bucks USD and change gets you into the buffet. Your options will be small town wedding reception fare, perhaps out of a Stephen King novel. Jello salad with multiple other... More

We did not try the breakfast buffet, only the dinner. Expensive, well that's not very surprising considering where you are. The food was not too bad though. The day we went, the ranch was full, but this place was not crowded at all (very likely because of the prices). We were tired after a long day's drive and it was... More

Stopped here for the lunch buffet on our drive through Death Valley. We knew there were not many restaurants in the area and didn't want to waste time weighing all the options, so we chose this buffet for a quick bite to eat so we could continue on our drive. BAD DECISION. Buffet was $15 per person for lunch and... More

Breakfast was disappointing. Eggs were cold and spongy, coffee was bitter. The Christmas buffet was very poor, right down to the pies set out in their tins, which were a mess -- mostly slopped around on the serving top. In any event, go down to the 49er cafe for breakfast. For a few dollars more, you'll get a meal of... More

We had two evening meals and two breakfasts at the Wrangler during our stay at the 49'ers encampment.The breakfasts vary on our first morning the buffet was great but on the second morning ,even at 6.30 the sausage links were cold and the scrambled eggs dry and crusty. Evening meals are very expensive .steak at nearly $70 ,they will cut... More
