We arrived after a very long journey and had a wonderful home cooked meal - so different from diners which serum to be everywhere! Lovely star

As it is low season, the full fine dining wasn't available. However the buffet was good quality and there was a wide range of desserts. The pulled pork was delicious! The view from the dining room is to die for as the sun sets over the mountains.

Excellent service and only slightly more expensive than other much less attractive Furnace Creek dining locations. Wonderful view of the valley below.

Restaurant within Furnace Creek Inn. It works only in the evenings, from 7pm till 10pm. It offers a free buffet with salads and different types of roast meat and bbq. In general delicious. Of course in the buffet there is a wide range of cakes and sweet desserts. Outside the buffet one can order a variety of beers and wines.

This facility is in the middle of Death Valley so do not expect fancy foods. It is holsome but basic food to feed the family. But it is expensive for the location, but what do you expect? The service is pleasant and food delivered quickly.

We didn't spend a night here but did enjoy a lovely lunch. Just salads… which were nicely made and perfectly served. Whether you go for a meal or a night's sleep, don't fail to check out the museum-quality paintings on the walls of the restaurant. This is a wonderful oasis in the middle of the desert.

We stopped here one night after hiking all day and a little wind blown looking for a good dinner. Nope, the lady looked us over - shuffled a few papers and said - I wish I could help you - but I just can't.

Apparently the flu was circulating through the staff during our one night visit. We had a delicious dinner and breakfast once we got it but poor service and long waits were the norm when we were there. The hostess (the manager) should have told us the issue and given us an alternative close restaurant as an alternative to waiting..

Good menu, good dinner and really nice service on both Friday and Saturday nights. After other reveiws, we weren't too sure about it, but there aren't really other choices....we were pleasantly surprised.
