Average food, though better than the Pines Cafeteria outside (however, food does come from there and gets passed through the restaurant), overpriced, great views, average waitstaff. If you're hungry and can wait 20 minutes, go to downtown and eat someplace else.

Although this is not the best food in Pal Springs, it is the only one atop the tram ride. Fills up your appetite with everyday favorites, burger, fries, chicken and more. A glass of wine makes a fine pairing with the food and view.

First trip up for family and we enjoyed everything. A little wait but worth it. 2 had the great burgers, one Mediterranean salad & one salmon dinner! Great service by Monica. Lifetime of memories from out of towners!

The food was ok, the staff was very nice. They were very busy, so we had to wait a bit. But it's all about the views:)
