By now, you have trudged around most of Tombstone and read and heard everything you can find about Wyatt, Morgan, and Virgil Earp and Doc Holliday. Now it's time to eat! The Crystal Palace has good beer and the usual snack and meal offerings. We were only there for a snack and the sliders were excellent. The pizza looked awesome . We enjoyed our time there as they had some live music on their stage that was very different and sounded great.

The food is delicious, and its incredible to be in a historic building. Its cool to look around and see the bullet holes in the ceiling, and the waitresses are dressed in period attire. The food has never disappointed, highly recommend the blackened chicken with green beans and mashed potatoes. We also enjoyed a shot of Old Overholt (Doc Holiday's drink of choice). If the balcony is open, its also a great place to sit because you can enjoy all the happenings on Allen St while enjoying your meal.

What can I say that I continue to say and it has been over a year since I was here. The hamburger was great and my guests were completely satisfied with their meal. This continues to be one of the best places to eat when I am in Tombstone. I truly believe you cannot be dissatisfied with the amount of food or the prices. I hope they continue with the quality of service and food.

Wanted to try several restaurants in Tombstone. We arrived and were seated promptly, 2 of us at a 4 top. Ordered food and it came out in a reasonable time considered how busy they were. We ordered Chicken Caesar salads. When they arrived I immediately noticed the texture was off and upon inspection, discovered the chicken was raw. They were apologetic and made it right. It took a while and by the time I received my new salad, my wife was nearly done with hers. In addition they seated 2 guests at our table instead of at an open 4 top which was really weird and not appreciated. Will not return.

I wanted to grab a beer at one of the authentic bars in Tombstone. It does have an authentic feel with the large wooden bar but I don’t know if it had burned down in the years after the Earps or not. I think it was Virgil who was ambushed in front of it. We seated ourselves at a social distanced table along the wall. A server came quickly and apologetically described their cash only policy and made a big deal about this. This was unnecessary since there was an ATM machine next to the front door. The beer came quickly and was cold. They provided all that we needed.

We just returned home from a three day trip to Tombstone. Day one was spent visiting the usual tourist traps, ending with a beer at the Crystal Palace. What an incredible place!!! Upon entering we met the lady miner that does "lap dances" during the feature shows. What a hoot... Then we bellied up to the bar and were met by one of the most friendly bartenders we have ever come across. The bar itself is something that should be marked as a "Must see" while in Tombstone. Half way through our drink we met the local artist Mark Brown. We purchaced three of his pieces that were absolutely amazing. ( While we sat there he did some impromptu drawings on bar napkins and gave them to us.) All of the staff are just wonderful. I can't imagine dealing with tourists all day long- day in and day out- and still being in character and having a smile on your face.
Day two was spent in the usual tourist fashion- this time stopping for lunch at the Crystal Palace. Again, the same impression. Great wait staff and excellent bartenders.
I simply can't believe the poor review since we had two excellent encounters. We will be back. If you go and see Mark Brown tell him "Larry & Terry" sent ya!!

We stopped in the Crystal our first night in town to have a beer and listen to the band. The band was great, but we didn't stay long. The crowd was mostly locals and we didn't feel too welcome. We wanted to see it again in the daylight & gave it another chance the next afternoon around lunch time. Since we weren't there to eat, we felt the wait staff were a little put out by us coming through to look at the beautiful history. If you are in town, I would definately pop in to check it out, becasue it is truly beautiful. I just didn't get a very positive vibe on my visits.

My fiance and I are from California we went on a road trip to tombstone in a Harley, I didn't know much about the history in Tombstone. Ended up staying another night and loved it. it's really amazing definitely recommend everyone to go check it out! The people in town are really friendly the actors are awesome specially the people in The "Crystal palace saloon," that gave me so much advice and made me realize I was about to make the biggest mistake of my life. I just want to say thanks RJ for your compliments and the cowboy that kept me company.

Recently spent two nights in Tombstone, and both times I ended up spending time in the Crystal Palace. With a mixture of the friendly locals plus a few tourists, it was easy to have a good time. There was live music both nights, and plenty of dancing if you wanted to. A pool table was also available.

I would definitely go back!

We visited several years ago. Planned on one night passing through Tombstone. Visited Boot Hill and other tourist type places. We loved the old west shows, the actors were professional and friendly. Just what would have been typical old west. We ended up staying for 3 nights. The Crystal Palace was unique. Bartenders dressed like the old west with vests, gun holsters. looked very authentic. All you had to do to engage them was to ask a question. yes the bar was absolutely beautiful, the rest was plain. However i think it depicted how it was in the old west. I guess we have a tendency to compare it to the movies rather than to think about how it really was like. I highly recommend Crystal Palace, don't be too shy or expect anything other than the old reality. Ask for the history book, it will amaze and lead to open conversation.
