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

Evening meals are very expensive .steak at nearly $70 ,they will cut... More

They serve a breakfast buffet for $12. It left something to be desired.Dried out crusty scrambled eggs, and hard dried biscuits.Oatmeal ok but they ran out. There could be more attention to quality and freshness, even if it is in the middle of nowhere and you have little choice.

I really enjoyed the selections of breakfast foods. Everything I had was very good, especially the potatoes.

The only meal we had at the Wrangler was when during the day they serve a breakfast and lunch buffet. Regarding breakfast, the eggs were cold, the cantaloupe too hard to eat, the biscuits awful. There was nothing of quality on that buffet. You are a captive audience when staying at Furnace Creek Ranch and I advise guests to pack... More
