Everyone in my family enjoyed our meal at the 29 Palms Inn restaurant. The salad was fresh and simple and delicious; the pasta special was tasty and healthy; the steak was perfectly prepared. The cassoulet was hearty and healthy. Service was friendly and efficient. Would go to this restaurant even if we didn't stay at the Inn.

We had been recommended this restaurant by our hosts at Roughley Manor, but didn't quite know what to expect. The staff were incredibly friendly and the food was great. The Barman, and our Server were charming and the popularity of the restaurant, with locals and visitors alike, was obvious.

Stopped here on our way to Arizona. The service was quick and welcoming. Our lunch was fresh and tasty. The clam chowder was freshly made, mildly spicy, and chock full of clams. Cannot miss with this one.

The dining room is off the pool, so I suppose that one needs to be careful going in. The entrees are pretty much what are served in any good restaurant, but the Inn truly excels in two places: Their cook deals with fish as well as any restaurant I have ever experienced. Yes, here in the desert, far from the... More

Arrived without a reservation but the wait was well worth it...sat with a glass of excellent Rose by an open fire whilst star gazing! I am fussy with food...I prefer quality not quantity and chose the Spinach Salad - after checking the eggs were from 'happy chickens', which they are as they keep chickens on the 'Farm'(I even visited them...

The food was so-so, in that it is supposed to be locally grown, and fancy ingredient words were used on the menu, blah, blah, but what it really was was what I would call good home cooking. The place itself was interesting. It might be fun to stay there. The night we went there was live music, which was nice.

Food review only. Very lively on a busy Friday night. The greeter was a bit gruff, stating it would be 30-40 minute wait. We went to the bar and found the standard fare. Domestic beers on tap (0 Craft beer) and mass produced (cheap) wine – none very appealing. For a California restaurant serving steak and seafood, the wine list... More

Dear Russell, Your feedback is appreciated, and you are certainly correct that it was a very busy weekend for our small restaurant given that it was the President’s Day long weekend and also Valentine’s Day. Our sincere apologies that your first impression and interaction with our staff seemed gruff or unwelcoming, that’s never our intention. We are also sorry that... More

Love the menu selection at lunch. Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere when getting together with my girlfriends for a bite to eat and a chance to catch up!

We were seated at the bar while we waited for a table, where the bartender was kind and friendly. The whole restaurant had a cozy and familial atmosphere with live music, and our waiters were kind, courteous and friendly (Shout-outs to Shelby and Sabrina!) and the food was incredibly fresh and very tasty! Definitely would return and come again, a... More
