Nice dinner

Only option in town, and quite a good one at that, contrary to the motel across the road, which is to be avoided...

Sometimes in a deserted place, you just eat where and what you can! This place has GREAT food and quality service! We enjoyed an early breakfast and great service! Very nice start to the day in a lonely desert town!

Been coming here for years. The service is always good and the food is good. Starting to get a little pricy, but it is in the middle of nowhere.

I have driven through here several times and missed this gem but I won't be passing without stopping again. The staff was friendly and accommodating to my 2.5 yo daughter. The food was delicious. The omelet was fantastic and everyone at my table agreed the pancakes were the best we have ever had. I still remember how light and fluffy... More

Stopped here to grab a bite to eat before heading into death valley. Food was good. It felt like a very local eatery type of place. Put gas in your car before you get to Shoshone...its your last opportunity and prices of gas are not pretty.

I have been to Shoshone several times and have eaten here a few times . The food is pretty good for a little desert town . Take pictures and checkout all the old stuff and museum .

Crowbar was our last stop for breakfast before heading into the Death Valley. Food was great and the atmosphere very typical. Recommend it highly !

I loved going to this café in the small town of Shoshone. It wasn't a cheap feed, nor expensive but it was great food and the staff were really pleasant. Good to stop off for lunch in the middle of nowhere.

We stopped of here for lunch. It wasn't busy but the food was excellently prepared and served. Refills for drinks. We were even joined by the local Sherriffs office for dining. Some very interesting artifacts and pictures around the cafe and saloon. A good stopping off point if you are in the area.
