We take pride in baking our own sourdough bread daily, and making all of our own soups, dressings and desserts. When available, we incorporate fresh & organic fruits and vegetables from our own Faultline Farm. Dine poolside, or indoors, and enjoy live acoustic music seven nights a week. Visit our blog to see our monthly music schedules. Our restaurant seats on a first come, first serve basis. We strongly recommend calling ahead 30-40 minutes before you plan on arriving to speak with our host. We will be happy to give you an update on how busy we are, and if there is a wait list, put your name it. To keep things flowing in our small dining room, we will direct large parties of 10 or more to make arrangements with our Restaurant Manager.

This is a really cool place for lunch, with local art on the walls, and a mix of locals, world travellers, retirees and hipsters. You might spot a famous person here, but the place is not pretentious or expensive. It's tucked away in an oasis at a desert retreat. I had the steak salad, and it was huge and vert good. The service is friendly too. You'll want to walk around the interesting oasis after your meal. There is a funky cool hotel here too, and a full bar. Fun experience without hurting your wallet.

Enjoying a delicious meal and nice cocktails by a warm desertic evening, with live music on the poolside, after having a swim under the stars.... awesome evening.

I went here while visiting family living near the military base. They wanted to take us out to dinner and had to satisfy all of our appetites. My boyfriend and I each had a burger, both were fantastic, and the staff was willing to make the changes we asked for. All the changes even came out correct, which is not always the case. The decor is simple and features a lot of local art for sale. The restaurant embraces its desert location and allows it to color the atmosphere.

All of the produce used in the restaurant is grown right there in their garden, and the difference was noticeable. The fruit was delicious, and it's surprising how much of a difference a fresh grown piece of lettuce an make to a burger or their salads.

Definitely the best choice in town. Avoid the chain restaurants that you could have anywhere and try this place. I was told by my family that it was wonderful food, and we were definitely not disappointed. I'll certainly be back next time we're in town.

This became our go to restaurant when working in Joshua Tree. I took my staff here several times for lunch and there is a good selection of interesting hot sandwiches, salads, etc. There is a "local" vibe but it doesn't interfere with having a good group lunch. Haven't had dinner here.

We went to this restaurant based on other reviews on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. We ate inside and enjoyed the live music. The food was very good especially the pork. The service was friendly and we did not have to wait long between courses.
