Good Old Fashioned Family Diner and Saloon

We stopped here because my husband had been there 20 years before. It was much the same, except for upgrades, and just as friendly and clean as he remembered. Food was good. It feels a little pricey, but you have to remember that the remote location makes providing a decent meal a little more... read more

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.

While staying overnight at the Shoshone Inn (across the street) we ate dinner and breakfast at this spot, the only show in town. The service and the food were very good. There was only one other couple there, so that may have had something to do with the speed of the order, since many others complain it is slow. The... More

We stopped here not knowing what we were going to find, so glad we did. We received a warm and friendly welcome. The food was delicious, recommend the Californua omelette with country potatoes, it's a quirky backward place with excellent standard, loved it

It's just the name. It's made with ground beef and the touch of heat is perfect! I had the burger chili style...soooo good!

It's a cute place to have a burger and fries and a beer. I go to Shoshone to pick up a lotto ticket every now and then and sometimes stop here for a burger. This last time went I found $10 to be slightly excessive but it was VERY good so no complaints there.

Having driven from Vegas to Death Valley we needed a break so decided on the Crowbar. We like to try small and interesting places and the inn fit the bill. It isn't fancy but it sure was worth the stop! Pretty good choice of food from reuben sandwiches to prime rib. The servings were on the large size and the... More
