My wife and I had dinner reservations and showed up a little early, so we had a glass of wine in the lounge which was comfortable with a nice view of the valley. Dinner was outstanding, notable were the beet salad and the bread. We had Roy, our excellent waiter, take the bread away before we ate it all. The... More

Xanterra rides on the coat tails of former glory in what was the best dining option in this national park. Food has gone way downhill, but not the prices. Take a look to see what a first rate hotel dining room used to look like (now quite bare) and take your meals at the Ranch

We had our final family dinner in Death Valley National Park at the Inn. The food and service was fantastic. Beet salad and onion tarts my favorites.

How does 2 hours for a mediocre breakfast sound? If that's your idea of heaven, than head on over to the inn! We got there at 7 am to find a half full dining hall. We were a group of seven, and yes there were a couple large groups there at the time. Still, the place was half empty. Literally... More

We were in Death Valley National Park for only two days, however we make sure we ate at the dining room of The Inn at Furnace Creek both evenings. The food was outstanding as was the service. I have a vegetarian diet but had no issue with obtaining a fine dinner from their menu. Their deserts were also outstanding. Eating... More

Reservations recommended in advance. We arrived at 5 pm, checked in and were hungry from a long drive. Could not get a table until 8:30. Instead we found a nice spot in the bar area adjacent to the window, watched sunset and enjoyed the restaurant menu. Quality of the food was good. Our waitress, Paige was exceptional.

We had breakfast at the Dining Room on the morning of our departure from the Inn. Both the food and service were top notch. My wife's spinach, mushroom & asiago cheese omelet was, to quote, "the best [she has] had in a restaurant." My sausage & biscuits with eggs was also very good -- presented "casserole" style, all stacked together.... More

The dining room at the Inn is by far the most luxurious fine dining establishment in Death Valley. It is expensive. Service is excellent. The menu offers a good selection of entrees. Wine list is OK. If price is a barrier, think about going up there for a drink around sunset..

O have stayed at the Inn three times and they were wonderful experiences. Though a bit on the premium side for my pocketbook, the food was 4 Star where ever else you might go. It is a place out of the Wealthy 40s and 50s.

Thank Steven S
