“Poor and rude service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013

Went to get piza Togo. Children not allowed to wait in bar. Pizza quick, but good. Added 15% gratuity to bill, despite being to go. Initially refused to remove from bill, saying that how else do you think they get anyone to work especially as you Europeans don't tip.

“Great value, great fun, good beer and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2013

Staying at the ranch in Furnace creek we went in for one drink.....after a couple more, we decided we had to eat. Staff were great and provided great service and really good honest pub-food. Burgers, pizzas, ribs etc. Great local beers although the stout was a bit odd. We did try the rest though and they were all great. No hangover either, although no guarantee for that!

“Efficient service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

We were staying at the Furnace Creek Ranch during our visit to Death Valley and wanted to have a little bite in the evening. As there is basically only 3 food places to choose from, all of which seem to have bad reviews, I was a bit worried. We ended up going to the Corkscrew Saloon in the end, which is (as you might have figured from the name) more of a bar than a restaurant. This didn't really bother me, sure most of the people were there to have a beer and watch the basketball game that was on, but that only meant that the waitress had more time for us. I ordered the Buffalo Chicken and my boyfriend went for the Tri-Angus burger, both came with fries and were good for bar food. I do not think they were that overpriced either. Not a gourmet meal but that was hardly what was to be expected in a place like Death Valley.

“No choice”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

Beer lovely and cold .but annoying service charge added automatically. Wine was good but make sure you ask to see the wine list cheaper options than menu.

Food worst of 2 week road trip. Tinned chillie and cheese crackers. Awful hot dog watery coleslaw.

“Prickly Pear Margarita”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

Try the prickly pear margarita. It's delicious! The pizza was not bad. The service was friendly. The atmosphere was great for families or adults.
