A must place to see, the museum and the restaurant are well worth your time. Once you go you will tell all your friends what a great place.

This is by far the best place to have a great meal. The staff is very friendly, food is excellent! I will be taking my entire family here for a night out on the town.

We love the Chrystal Palace for dinner and entertainment, we take all out of town visitors there, but the first time we went to the Sunday brunch our reaction was "meh" not so much. We decided it had been years since we had been there for brunch, and most of our favorite brunch places have stopped doing it, so we... More

They can't understand an Australian accent. On two different visits I had to slow down and really articulate what I was asking for. That being said I loved the place and will make it a must visit when I'm in town next.

Of course the music was amazing ( if you love country that is), but I was really sad about the quality of food. I initially ordered the fried catfish dinner and the fish was not a good quality at all and there was a pool of oil on my plate. So then I asked them to take it back, which... More

Went for a family dinner and the food was okay, went to cut the rug but the line dancers pushed us out of the way! The biscuits are fresh and the service is great but the beef kabobs were tough as was the steak.

I have seen several country artists. Dinner shows are the best value. Excellent food and drinks. They also offer a Sunday Bruch that is fantastic but a little expensive. I have friends that eat there on a regular basis. I do on special occasions only. The service there is excellent. The concert area is surrounded. There is not a bad... More
