Great spot after a long day of climbing in Joshua Tree

The Saloon is very casual, but isn't that what you're looking for after a day in the park? They have a great selection of micro-brews on tap and the best burgers in the area. There are also a couple of pool tables, if you enjoy a game of pool.

On a hot day, respite can be found inside this saloon! Good choices on full menu. Delicious BLT and jalapeño burger were enjoyed by our party of two. Delicious sweet potato fries and onion rings too. Definitely appears to be the locals' hangout. Some TV monitors for sports, dartboard, pool table and a Happy Hour welcomes all.

Stopped in for lunch. Great menu with great food and great prices and great service. They have a lot of tables for food service. Staff is great and prompt. Is built in the old western style but do not let the outward looks fool you. The place is great inside. Good music and lots of TV's for sports and also... More

My wife and I had lunch here today. I had a steak sandwich and she had a grilled cheese. The food was good but we weren't offered drink refills or asked how it was until it was time for the check. I'd go here again for drinks and wings but not for a sit down meal.

The food was the weakest link at this lively bar, but the beer and atmosphere were great. The crowd of diverse locals and tourists made the saloon feel lively and uplifting and the fish tacos weren't bad, but the food could definitely improve.

Try the signature salad, appetizer sampler also great. Only problem is you always have to sit down at a dirty table. Need to hire a someone to clean tables.

the grass fed beef steak sandwiches and burgers were soooo! good. order you sandwich with the chorizo sauce, there is absolutely nothing better anywhere. wish they would bottle it. with a nice beer selection and a great atmosphere where you might even see a musician or two sitting nearby this is a classic roadhouse pub.

Stopped in after a day in the park. Great selection of beer followed by a Mushroom Swiss Burger cooked to perfection. Service was fast and friendly. Definitely should include this as a part of your visit to the park

There are times when you don't care what else is on the menu; you just want a great burger and a beer. We weren't disappointed.

The Joshua Tree Saloon, a local institution, is a great place for bar food, a selection of 14 beers, including a few local craft beers. I had the Chipotle Burger: 1/3 lb. of expertly cooked beef on a home-baked bun with fries. It was enough for dinner for the next night as well. The Saloon has music pretty much every... More
