This place is good given the location and the distances to get food in. It's not 5 star quality food, but it's good food and the staff are friendly. You can't ask for much more given your location.

DH & I decided to make reservations here when we were spending a night at Furnace Creek Ranch in May 2014. We arrived at the allotted time and were given a table as far away from the windows as it was possible to be, despite there being free tables at the windows. But hey, we had spent the day sight...

Stayed at the Inn and had 2 breakfasts there and one dinner. Breakfasts are good, not spectacular. Excellent service. One of the nicest things about dining here is the incredible view. At dinner, probably better to stick with grilled meats/vegetables-had prime rib one night which was outstanding.

the breakfast at the Furnace Creek Inn Dining Room was great! As you'd expect, the service was impeccable, the excellent coffee kept coming, and the entrance through a long tunnel created an air of mystery. The eggs and bacon were done as ordered---a rarity for breakfast cooks, who seem to either over or undercook eggs and the price wasn't much... More

I recently spent two evenings at the Inn at Furnace Creek Dining Room. On each occasion that I visited, the food was very well prepared and tasty. To start off the meal, the waiter brought over a selection of date bread and rolls with 3 different butters (regular, garlic herb, and date). I ordered the Caesar salad which was accented... More

Some of the TripAdvisor reviews we read beforehand were not very complimentary, but being one of the few options, we decided to splurge one night during our stay in Death Valley. We had a terrific meal. My rack of lamb was perfectly cooked, and the accompanying vegetables and salad were fresh and tasty. The portions were ample. The service was... More

We had a delightful lunch; Strawberry Barbeque Chicken on a pretzel roll. It comes with "house" chips, but we shared an order of French fries. Sat by the window & overlooked Death Valley, the service was great & the price was very reasonable.

This place was a big surprise. The food was great and the service couldn't be beat. Our waiter was terrific. I don't remember his name but it seemed like everyone was enjoying themselves as much as we were regardless of who was taking care of them. We were with two other couples and everyone loved the place. The best part... More

We stopped here for lunch on the way through Death Valley. The sandwiches were very tasty and filling. The service was good, and all the staff were very friendly. I think the comments about it being pricey should really be expected considering where it is, and that they obviously have a bit of a monopoly on tourists.

Imagine $50 pp food that a dog may turn down. Nice servers could not make up for an overpriced meal that would be better if it came out of a can. Imagine salmon cold and uncooked on one end and overcooked on the other end - or ice cold rice? Now you are getting the picture. Did not want to... More
