The food was just ordinary and expensive (&55 for 3 orders - pancakes and a drink each). Evening waitress was about average for most restaurants but morning waitress was not friendly and not happy about having to communicate with the kitchen. We had called the...More

I really wasn't expecting such good food in Death Valley. Out of the way places aren't known for being a good valve or having good food. Not the case with this place. Service was really great and we both enjoyed our dinners. Prices we reasonable.

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

Scared away from the steakhouse by the prices, and unwilling to pay for a big buffet since I am a small eater, I selected the café as my restaurant of choice. I was pleasantly surprised. I ate dinner here for four straight nights and enjoyed...More
