Always stop here for a beer in the middle of Tombstone. If you like old historic places, stop by. Don't know about the food, but the atmosphere is what you are there for. Kind of like the Palace in Prescott.

We had eaten lunch in Tombstone and were not terribly hungry, so we both had appetizers. Let's put it this way the atmosphere is much better than the food. The chicken wings were swimming in a half inch of grease in the bottom of the tray. The shrimp basket was not much better taste wise. But you get to enjoy... More

Lots of locals in this bar. Stopped in for a beer and a rest. It was fun talking to locals and the bartender made plenty of time to tell us stories. Large beer selection (and plenty of other libations.

I performed a wedding here for a couple from CA. They wanted an outdoor wedding but it was pouring rain that day. The Crystal Palace staff arranged for them to have it indoors near the stage. They got everything moved and the music connected in record time. We all were dressed in western attire and the patrons thought it was... More

While visiting Tombstone, we enjoyed a lunch at the Crystal Palace Saloon. The food was very good. Arrived very quickly to our table. The menus is limited but the food delicious.

Mixed feelings about the decor of this restaurant. The bar area was pretty cool especially as a couple of gunslingers were sitting at one end, magic. The seated table area lacks a bit of atmosphere though, not my personal taste but suppose the more people crammed into space the better the profits. We had a while to wait before our... More

Seems like they could make the place feel more authentic, but the food was good. They seem to get by on being a famous spot as seems the case with most of the town.

It's hard to say that food at an amusement park is really good, and well this place isn't any better. The beer was warm. The need to pack more ice! Recommended but there is better in Sierra Vista. Take a picture by the bar. From what I understand it is the original. They have restored it so it is really... More
