Great selection of food and overall good flavour. Place is open later afternoon and hence need to kill time waiting if you arrive after lunch time. Inside decor is somewhere mid 70's and reminded me on my granni's place.

Good food, friendly staff. Had an excellent steak dinner. Ate outside because of the plandemic. The saloon looked fun. Enjoy.

Just average on the quality and selection. Way overpriced for dinner ($30/adult; $15/child). Staff are super friendly.

We've been coming to Furnace Creek for years. Before the renovation the food at all the places to eat was pretty good. Now, however, it is mediocre at best. The 1849 Buffet is the worst. Terrible food and staff that doesn't seem to care. The...19th Hole was bad and the Saloon was just barely good. To top it off the prices are way more than they should be. We ended up buying snacks and sandwiches at the General Store which were good and worth the money. It would almost make sense to drive to Stovepipe Wells or Panamint Springs to eat. The food at both places is several notches above the best Furnace Creek has to offer. We found the food at Panamint Springs outstanding. We spent three days there and had breakfast, lunch and dinner at the restaurant. Everything was great and prices reasonable plus a great staff.More

We had the best meals at the 1849 Buffet in the four trips my wife and I had in Death Valley. The selection was extensive and the quality was great. The best deal is to have your dinner at lunch hour and a snack later...in the evening. Wonderful atmosphere and helpful friendly staff. Of course it is expensive but so is *every thing* in Death Valley.More

Two breakfasts and one lunch as this was about the only place that had power and could serve food. We thought the food was OK, but prices were a bit high. But hey, you're in Death Valley, where everything has to be brought in.

During a five night stay at The Ranch, we had dinner here twice and breakfast once—very few options are available. The dinner description promised a "carvery," which was not in evidence, but the food was fairly interesting and well prepared for a buffet restaurant. There...is always a salad bar with a reasonable number of choices, a couple decent desserts, non-alcoholic beverages, etc. Hot entrees one night included barbecue fare: pulled pork and beef, mashed potatoes (very good), rice, beans, mac and cheese, and nicely steamed vegetables. The other night was more Tex-Mex with tortillas, chicken or beef fajitas, a couple kinds of enchiladas. It all could have been hotter—a challenge on steam tables, but it was pretty tasty. The price was outrages: $30. At $16 each, breakfast was disappointing. Selections barely exceed in variety or quality the standard "breakfast included" motel fare: scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, cereal, oatmeal, sad French toast, sadder home fries, mediocre pastries, and fresh fruit.More

We ate breakfast at the buffet every morning. I’m always good for two cups of coffee and at the other eating options, the coffee costs $4.50 so paying about $17 for the Buffett is a deal. There is a good selection of fruit along with...the normal buffet of scrambled eggs, potatoes, sausage patties, bacon, French toast, and breads. After a hearty breakfast, we were on our way with a banana for lunch.More

Read some crummy reviews of this place but I liked it. Selection was good. No reservations needed and plenty of seating.
