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.

Each time I visit Death Valley I marvel at the quality of the food at the Inn given that it's beyond the end of civilization. I haven't been disappointed in several visits. Plus, it's a throwback to what traveling used to be like.

The food here was average with a limited vegetarian option. Apparently the restaurant had only recently re-opened for the winter season. There are not many places to eat in death valley and I don't think I would eat here again. Breakfast however was great, but a little pricey. I would recommend this, again there are not many places to get... More

We ate breakfast and dinner here. Every meal was very good. Full bar service compliments the menu. We always had a table with a view. So when the roadrunner hopped up on a patio table right outside our window, we were felt we had experienced it all!

We did lunch and dinner here. At lunch, we were a little late due to the drive, but they accommodated us. Dinner was wonderful. It was a little formal, but you can be okay with blue jeans. The date nut bread is fabulous as a starter. The menu has several good choices and the chef tends to pair different starches... More
