We ate here when staying nearby. Dinner was tasty and we had a nice conversation with the couple sitting next to us. Not many choices in Baker for dinner so we were happy to find this place.

We went on Saturday night when it was very busy. Despite not having any reservations, our party was accommodated with a smile and we arrived on time for the astronomy presentation! The food was excellent.

We were so lucky to find Kerouac’s in Baker NV while visiting Great Basin Park. All you campers and RV-era, skip the homemade or “pre-made, freeze-dried, reconstituted meal” and treat yourself to some truly delicious food!! Everyone (even the kids in the restaurant) raved about...More
