“Didnt stay at Hotel , just ate at restaurant, Dissapointed after years of visiting ;-(”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Been visting here for years................. Unfortunatley the same thing has happened here as so many other places in the area. The cost of food is ridiculous..... we even questioned it and we are use to eating in expensive places....
Staff are friendly, locations great and uniqueness still remains, location as charming as ever but its simply a fact that this place has fallen prey to the price cranking weve seen in the area.......and to be honest the food was average, my salad was in fact not very good at all...

Such a shame ;-( ill probabley go back as ive always liked the place but this is the first step to it becoming just another cafe on the side of the road in death valley. gutting...

“what would you expect ?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

as other reviewers have noted; if staying in Panamint Springs you have limited options; this is in the middle of nowhere for God's sake. We were staying in the RV park over the road and had resigned to dining here - and were, it must be said, pleasantly surprised. Cactus juice margaritas followed by a very decent pizza and salad; local beer, and pretty good value too. Casual, affable but competent service. And a memorable view of Panamint valley at sunset. Come on you grumblers out there - have a sense of occasion and magic of it all !!

“Limited, expensive, but tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

If you are staying at the Resort here, you are limited to this restaurant as it is the only place for 30 miles. We ate here twice for dinner and had hamburgers both nights. They are a bit expensive, costing $11 to over $20 (more if you want salad with it). There are also a number of salads and pizzas, which I'm assuming are pretty good after talking to some other guests.

“Burgers, pizzas and salads”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

Yes they have a steak but the simple fare is excellent. Our favorite, the fried zucchini and the chocolate bunt cake. Good Greek salad, pizza and burgers. Staff is great. Amazing variety of beers and wines. Low key place where you can linger and enjoy the outside porch. We will return.

“Veggie pizza with a view”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

Veggie pizza was good, as was the locally produced root beer. Everything else was just ok (my mates had burger, hawaiian pizza, salad, soup). Service was quite good and friendly.
