“Better than Furnace Creek but not as good as Panamint Springs”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2014

Bar food, but pretty good bar food. The pulled pork quesadilla was very tasty and the tortilla soup really good. A little pricey, but less so then the food options at Furnace Creek and the food is better. Visit the sand dunes and head to the Saloon for lunch with a view.

“Bar food, fresh tea, TV”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

Good service. Basic bar food menu. TV if you need it. They had a painting of a naked lady above a door way and would pull a curtain down over it if kids were around. Thought that was pretty funny!

“Very slow service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

We had lunch here. We were the 3rd table to be seated and then waited....and waited. Our waiter was incredibly unorganized and seemingly uncaring that 10 tables of guests were waiting for food as he chatted with the other help. When our lunch came, the french fries were cold and the salad lukewarm, making us think that everything was just sitting, waiting to be picked up. I would suggest the management rethink their employee choices.

“Best in the Area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

The Bloody Marys in the Saloon were pricey (so is everything in Death Valley) but very good and the meals in the restaurant were spot on. Had dinner (chicken salad, cheese burger) and then buffet breakfast the next morning. All the food was tasty, reasonably priced, and service was very friendly. Would have no problem planning to eat and drink here again.

“Glad it was there”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

Average food. However we were starving and were so glad that it was there. If you are in the area and hungry stop in for a bite to eat. Service was slow when we were there.
