I found this restaurant expensive with little choice. I ordered a bowl of soup and got a dried up bun with it. The soup with tax and tip was $10 US or $14 Canadian - rather expensive for a bowl of soup.

Very convenient place if you are staying at the Furnace Creek Ranch. Food choices are very limited. Service is friendly and fast. Food was pretty tasty. My wife and I both ordered pasta dishes, and we loved the fact that they served the pasta dishes...More

Nothing special here. Basic cafe food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. Not a huge menu. Food is pricey, but that's the case all over Death Valley. If you want oatmeal for breakfast you have to get there before 7:30 am. The burger is a good luncheon...More

Our food was very good as was the price. It was just a bit slow, but during the summer the locations to eat were limited and slightly crowded, so given that, it was not bad.

There aren't too many food offerings in Furnace Creek, so we decided to eat here. We had our dog, therefore we planned to eat at the tables in front of the restaurant, which wasn't even a big deal, as it was a nice February day....More

I'm glad we got the chance to see this place. They are tearing it down along with the saloon and steakhouse. But they will replace with a temporary structure in the village while they are rebuilding.
