Any bad reviews of the restaurant at 29 Palms won't chime with our experience. We've eaten here as a family of 3, 4 and 5 people, around 20 times in total since 1998. Every tine has been superb. Alright, the desert is awesome and the pool surrounds and the hotel are also fabulous, even the modest interior is great, but... More

We ate here five of the seven nights we were in Twentynine Palms. The good was excellent (best by far in town), the cocktails were very good, the staff was attentive and friendly, and the live music was a bonus. We were able to sit outside most nights. Be prepared to wait between 20-40mins for a table. You can also... More

The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The location is great as it is on the outskirts of the city. My wife had the Salmon and I had the catch of the day which was an halibut and wa really good. No IPA on tap but the bottled one was very good.

Great news to share with you - we now have three choices for beer on tap, including a fantastic IPA from a company called Hangar 24, a craft brewery in Redlands, California. You'll have to come...

A must stop if you visit the Joshua Tree Area. The history and grounds have a story to tell. The restaurant cuisine is delicious with excellent cocktails by the pool side!
