The best part about Stove pipe wells resort is their bar hands down. Really good bar food many many drink and local beer choices. and if you are there during the summer a great place to get out of the heat and have a few cold ones and if you have too many you can stay the night and use... More

Not much to do in Stovepipe Wells, but if you need a drink this is a pleasant place to stop. Great bar with many drink selections.

I had planed on eating here but thought that we had bypassed. Luckily we came across it and it was just as good, or better than we had expected.

This was the only choice in Stovepipe Wells and so has a kind of monopoly on proceedings. The food was good and the dining room very western which was cool. It was a little bit expensive but without any competition it was never going to be great value.

lets be real honest with each other. xanterra must be latin for overpriced, undersized meals and crappy service at national parks. everything we ordered fit the bill, and two of us ate for about $50 with tip, and left hungry. should have just eaten in camp again.

Atmospheric saloon with choices of food and drink to be a fun stop while you are out touring. Attached to it is the Toll House restaurant which has fantastic meals at half the cost of the Xanterra-run restaurants at Furnace Creek Ranch, where you are a captive audience.

This is a National Park and the food usually is buffet style so we opted for the Badwater Saloon for a drink first. The bartender, 151-Richard S was very good, and that he would service us dinner at the bar if we wanted to eat, this was the full menu and not just from the bar menu, this was at... More

An oasis in the desert. Excellent staff/service, good beer selection, tasty food, and a fine view make for a good choice in dining. Never mind that it's the only choice for a number of miles. But that makes it all the more remarkable -- they don't have to be that good, but they are. The only downside was the number... More

These saloons with homemade burgers are very good places to eat. So much better than Macs and those other whopperplaces. Normally I prefer a good cold beer to that but as I had to drive on I took the Coke Zero. It's a pleasant Valley to stop by.

We’d been disappointed in our dining experiences at the Furnace Creek Ranch, where we were staying, so decided to stop for lunch at the Badwater Saloon at Stovepipe Wells Village. The atmosphere was suitably wild west and the food selection better than what we’d encountered at Furnace Creek. We also liked the view from the windows that run along one... More
