First it is expensive! But great view as long as you get a table by the windows. Very upscale place for the middle of nowhere. Excellent food plus good staff

Having paid over $70 for a buffet dinner (the only choice) for two adults, you'd think the food would have been excellent. Not so. There were two meats in identical sauces, one choice of vegetables, one choice of potatoes, and some horrible macaroni and cheese. Also, there was a "chef" who "cooked" pasta for you. What this meant was he... More

Breakfast and coffee on the terrace is beautiful way to start the day before the day starts to heat up. Mornings from dawn to sunrise are amazing experience.

Their lunch menu was terrific, and we really enjoyed the food and ambiance. The staff was polite and very considerate, and the wait was not too terribly long. The meal for two was not terribly expensive, but not inexpensive either. Would go back to eat there when I have money to burn, but gas up before you go, as the... More

The bar and dining room are connected. Although dinner is available in the bar, the bartender did not encourage us to stay. Service in the bar was non existent. The dinner was very good and the service was also. Prices were high as expected.

If you are staying any where in Death Valley you have to make a stop at the Furnace Creek Inn and have either lunch or Dinner. We have driven 65 miles from Panamint Springs just to have dinner at the Inn, it is that good!!

Excellent wine list and an interesting menu full of delightfula nd unusual dishes that did not disappoint. Our waiter was well- read and experienced to 5 star standard. Dress code was more casual than smart casual

I read all the bad reviews here regarding the food, so I asked at the front desk and was told that they have a new cook now, and he is wonderful, the food is great. The old cook is gone. They were definitely correct. Beautiful dining room. Great waiters and waitresses.

We stopped for lunch at this restaurant halfway through our visit of death Valley and we did not regret our decision . The restaurant is quite nice and the view over the desert is great . We even saw a roadrunner on our way out . The menu offers a good choice of salads and sandwiches and we did appreciate... More
