Good Food but Expensive

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

Fun little restaurant that will take care of your basic needs. Friendly staff. Popular with bikers. Breakfast are especially good. There is at least a little choice for non meat eaters.

great service, good menu. We sat on the veranda for dinner, my burger was great. Fries were great too. My husband had a salad which he too enjoyed.

recently had lunch at the Crowbar Café in Shoshone, CA. It was during the Easter weekend and they had a steady flow of customers and my party had showed up right about the time the breakfast crowd was leaving and a few minutes before the lunch rush. The waitress was polite and sweet, but they were really understaffed. One waitress... More

Very friendly service and a great place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Food all freshly prepared and waitresses helpful. Don't expect posh. Beer on tap and opens at 8am in the morning. Great scrambled eggs and hash browns. BLAT was delicious at lunchtime. All enjoyed the combo plate for dinner.

The hand made frites are delicious and the Reuben sandwich was just fine. The restaurant provides a good stop en route to Furnace Creek but don't be in a rush as the service is a tad slow but it was lunch and as this is "the" place to eat that probably says it all. Go to the store cross the... More

Yes, it's the only place in town, but it's got GREAT food. We both loved our meals. They just had one server working the bar & restaurant, so service was a little slow. But she was working hard, so I can't complain. Definitely a good stop when coming back from Death Valley.
