“A Waste of our Time and Money”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

If you stay in Death Valley there are not many choices of places to eat. Because the main places to get food are far apart if you stay in a hotel or resort you're going to eat your meals in the same place. Furnace Creek Ranch offers three place to eat, 4 if you count the grill at the golf course.

We wanted a light dinner and hadn't yet tried the Steakhouse. We ordered the Oasis salads and two appetisers, grilled shrimp and steak satay. The salad is a nice selection of fresh greens, tomatoes, cucumbers and onions. This part was great however the dressing was nasty. It tasted like it came out of huge industrial jar. We had salad at Stovepipe Wells and they managed to have a dressing that tasted freshly made, so I dont know why these guys couldn't do it. The satay was super salty. The meat was pretty good but overwhelmed but the salty sauce. My grilled shrimp was greasy and the pico de gallo that came with it had an off taste of moldy food.

Now maybe these people do a wonderful steak, but after the food I had at this meal I won't take the chance and the high price to find out.

The staff was very friendly but the food is a real down note. It's a shame. Maybe they need to bring in one of those restaurant intervention shows to make it better.

“Breakfast and dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

The buffet breakfast was simple, yet good. It was not over priced. Steaks were cooked to order and very juicy and yummy. The sides were very complimentary. The service was outstanding during dinner.

“Buffet??”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

The restaurant serves a buffet for lunch. Don't bother. It is not very good. The bus tours take their passengers there. There many foreign visitors on those tours. I hope they don't think all food offerings in the US are this bad

“Gorgonzola stuffed dates wrapped in bacon!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

Oh, and the Prickly Pear margaritas. Yum!! The steak dinners are quite large and I'd suggest splitting with your dining companion.
