Had the beef brisket and fish and chips for lunch. Both were over cooked and dry. Fries were good though. Avoid if you can.

“The food is better than the service.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

It is OK for the location and for the absence of competition. The best thing is the burgers. The bar in the night is vibrant and busy.

“Good food, Friendly Service!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

Get there before 6pm for dinner-because wait list starts early in the busy season! Food was good! I ordered the New York strip, medium rare-steak was prepared properly with a good char. My husband ordered fried chicken-very good! Ample portions

“Decent food, not many choices in the area”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2012

Food decent, although relatively expensive for what you get. Not really a surprise, because dining options are few in this part of Death Valley. Servers were friendly and efficient. Best item on the menu were the delicious French fries...thin and perfectly cooked.

“Good Food and Great Service”

There is little choice in the Furnace Creek area but we ate breakfast and an evening meal here which was of a good standard and reasonable price. The service buy the staff was quick and efficient.
