Very nice place for a national park restaurant. Well maintained room with better than expected food and service. Highlight was the date bread with date butter (save a piece for dessert).

I had a great dinner here with my family. I did not expect food of this quality in the middle of the desert. My only criticism is that I would have liked more regional cuisine. If you are staying anywhere in Furnace Creek- it is definitely the best dining experience.

The ambiance is OK and the menu is big enough to allow for some variety over a multi-day stay but the neither the food quality or the service are as good as one might expect for supposedly the best place in the park.

Stopped at the Inn at Furnace Creek for lunch on the way back to Vegas and while the lunch menu may not be the most extensive one I have ever seen, the few items they have are excellent. I had the burger, done medium rare, and it came out perfect. Without a doubt, it was one of the best burgers... More

Even if staying at the Inn, early reservations are a MUST. Visitors at the lower priced overnight accommodation in Death Valley dine here to "splurge" on a first class meal.

Very friendly service during a rare rainy day in Death Valley. Close to main viewpoints and visitor centre.

The Inn is a walk back in time with decorations and ambience reminiscent of another era. We had lunch there on an overcast winter day in February and while the staff was extremely friendly and helpful, the options for lunch were limited to about eight choices and the food was only average. We still enjoyed ourselves and appreciated sitting by... More

This Inn is the premier hotel in Death Valley National Park so we expected to find very high, unaffordable prices and a very formal atmosphere. We've visited the Park several times, eating at Stovepipe Wells or at the Ranch restaurants, but one time we had a ranger-led tour (Fridays only) of the historic Inn & were told that they love...

Had lunch here after hiking. Menu is limited but food was tasty. I had California Cobb salad which was delicious. Everything was very fresh. My wife had a burger which was large and served with crisp and tasty fries. Good place to sit in the cool and look out on Death Valley.

While staying at the Furnace Creek Ranch, we had breakfast one day at the Inn. We enjoyed our meal and the nice view of the mountains. The service was very fast, efficient, and friendly. The biscuits and gravy was unusual with whole sausages. It was not my favorite method for this dish. Being in Furnace Creek the prices were exorbitant.... More
