Great root beer floats

Great place to set a spell and have lunch. Outdoor seating lets you eat with your pooch by your side.

After making the 3 mile hike on The White Trail through Dublin Gulch across the street, my wife and I stopped in at the Crowbar Cafe & Saloon for a margarita. Our server was great and made a pretty good margarita! Although we didn't eat anything here, we did check out the menu and found quite a few tantalizing entries... More

A great selection of food and drinks. A most welcome stopping point near the amazing Badwater Jubilee Pass Road and the Old Spanish Road, the scenic routes around the Death Valley area. Would definitely recommend anyone to this place.

The food was good but a little expensive. Nice old west town atmosphere. There is a museum right next door that is free (donations accepted)

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
