If you have not been to this restaurant and you live in the Stark county area you have truly deprived yourself of a treasure. Food was amazing, atmosphere was spot on, and they had belly dancers that was truly a treat and unexpected. I did not realize it and loved it”

Desert Inn is outstanding. Been here 3 times and got filet every time. Delicious and cooked perfectly every time. The family style green salad is awesome and so are all the other goodies that come with it. Every time I’ve been here we’ve had a large party and the servers always take it in stride and do a great job. And the last time I went was a Friday night, so I got to see the belly dancer for the first time! She was terrific as well. Can’t wait to go back to this place”
