“Had dinner, came back for breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

We had to wait a few minutes at the bar, but the wait was worth it. My elderly mother, husband and I all had terrific dinners. Our service was helpful and efficient. He also shared with us information about the town and the Inn. There was a singer accompanied by a man playing a muted trumpet. The music was lovely, but didn't intrude on our ability to converse. The setting is lovely--paintings on the wall and a view of the pool. We enjoyed it so much, we came back for Sunday brunch. And again our breakfasts were excellent. And our server admitted she came in early to bake the muffins. I can't eat flour, but my husband and mother were in heaven.

We decided to stop here for lunch after leaving Joshua Tree N.P. and were glad we did.

Very friendly service and really good food.

“Classy yet casual, and a good deal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2012

The meal was fancy, but the setting is unpretentious. The entrees are an excellent deal.

“Slightly funky, very nice restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

The 29 Palms Inn is one of those old gems, hidden in a desert oasis. The attached restaurant caters to hotel occupants but is open to oustiders. It sits across from the swimming pool. There are the standard steak, chicken and fish entrees, but usually some variations as well. The house-made ravioli are OUTSTANDING. The pork medallions in a port and grape reduction are excellent. The wait staff were all very helpful, even checking their iphone to see what was playing at the local drive-in. Finally, local artwork is always dicey, but there were wonderful watercolors on the wall. All were available for purchase.
