We certainly didn't know what to expect from an inn at Bombay Beach. So many rumors! But Wendell was kind and chatty and the food was above average. We returned the next day and ate the same thing - fish 'n' chips. Highly recommended!

Thought we would stop in for a beer. What a time capsule, dollars all over every surface. Met the owner, what a sweetie. Cold beer, what more can you ask for.

Was passing through and decided here for lunch. My beef dip sandwich was surprisingly flavorful, though the fries were a bit overcooked. My wife enjoyed her Ortega burger and her cousin liked her grilled ham and cheese. It's a husband and wife operation, with him...More

We stopped here because my son had seen it in his video game. The kitchen was not open so we had a drink and signed a bill to add to the collection on the walls. The bartender was happy to chat and answer our questions...More
