Summary: The food was good, but it was a bit overpriced (as you would expect in Death Valley) and nothing special. Food: Good, but nothing special. The salads were great, but the entrees (like pasta) were small and not special. Service: Great. Overall value: Okay....More

This place is a bit more economical than some of the other restaurants in the valley. The burgers were great. They have maps of the valley on the tables which is fun when planning what to do next.

Not many choices of places to eat in Furnace Creek. This was average food and expensive. We had to wait for a half hour or so, we expected that, but really not that good. I had the meatloaf, it was ok, mashed potatoes were lumpy,...More
