We were on our way home from Death Valley and read the reviews for this restaurant - we were not disappointed! It's clean, cute and a step 'back in time' diner. It was good 'home made' food. I highly recommend this place when in the area.

As we were leaving Death Valley National Park, this restaurant was a very pleasant surprise. The food was good and service excellent. The waitress was right the food was good! Our group had soup and salad and were very pleased. The place has some history and character as well. Well worth the stop!

Our family ate lunch at this restaurant on December 20, 2014 while driving from Death Valley National Park to Riverside, CA. The restaurant is small but the food is quite good, I had a vegetarian burger which had cheese on it. It also came with lettuce, tomato and avocado. I did not eat the hamburger bun - the vegetarian burger... More

Dinner menu pretty much limited to burgers and hot sandwiches. A pub type of upgrade (pool table) would really improve the atmosphere and the menu needs more variety such as pasta.

I was riding my motorcycle to Death Valley. I found this little place across from the gas station and figured lets eat. When I walked in there where 2 tables with people. BUT, every table and counter seat had plates from past customers. It was nasty! I asked the lady what happened here. I did not no if the place... More

Love to stop at Crowbar Cafe whenever we have the opportunity. The staff is a friendly. The food is good. I like the taco salad. Dublin Gulch is not far ...across and up the road and the museum is next door. Gas across the street is expensive compared to stations in Pahrump. The cafe is air conditioned and is like... More

This little gem is tucked away off the beaten path on CA Hwy 127 near the Nevada border and on the way to Death Valley. If you are heading to Death Valley from Pahrump, NV, it's worth taking a short route change -- head out of Pahrump on Hwy 372 instead of Bell Vista. Shoshone is a short drive of... More

Stopped in Shoeshone for lunch on our way out of Death Valley. A great place to stretch your legs, fill up (yourselves and your vehicles) and cool off. The Crowbar is nicely air conditioned and was a welcome relief from experiencing Death Valley on motorcycles. Friendly staff and good food. Too hot outside to try the rattlesnake chili although will... More

We stopped at the gas station for some water after our adventure in Death Valley and was told that the crowbar across the street was good food. And they were right. My wife had the Taco salad and I had a beef sandwich on rye bread which was one of the best sandwiches I've had in a long time. I... More
