“The Restaurant - not the Inn”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

A very enjoyable late meal by the pool across from the great palm trees. The restaurant was full inside. A duo guitar and fiddle were playing, rather free form music which just barely made it outside. The dinner we had, seafood and vegetarian was interesting and eclectic, but alas today I cannot find my travel journal. Cost for two, including wine, $42 before tip.

“A HIDDEN OASIS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

The food was excellent, both for dinner and brunch. They grow their own vegetables in a garden on the premises. Full bar and a well thought-out menu. Also, there are several tables outside on the deck surrounding the pool, with misters overhead. The servers are all extremely friendly. We're show biz "sophisticates" and we all loved the place!

“Great food and friendly atmosphere.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

The food was delicious and a very friendly atmosphere. Loved the tour of the home grown garden. Much of the things they grow are served in the restaurant.

“Excellent Dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2013

My husband and I ate here one night during a bus trip of the National Parks with a Road Scholar group. This is near Joshua Tree. The food had apparently all been prepared by one woman and it was WONDERFUL! There were lots of fresh vegetables and a lemon mousse dessert that was fabulous! Everything was flavored with fresh herbs. We didn't stay here so I couldn't tell you about the rooms, but the lovely homemade food was outstanding!

There were lots of pretty cactus plants and musical entertainment when we were there.

“It was okay”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

We ate here twice while in 29Palms. We ate inside--it was SOOOOo hot during the week we were there! The first night, we had a pretty good meal, GREAT drinks (Twisted Gretchen & Lime Cosmo--YUM!), but the service wasn't great. A few days later, had lunch--not so great...the tilapia was rubbery & raw! Sent it back and got rubbery and not raw--big disappointment. The spinach salads were okay...didn't have the kick of red onion that one would have expected. The fresh food from the garden is a plus. As far as an overall impression, it was a relaxing experience, and a bit higher class than most places in this high-desert town.
