We had never been to the Crystal Palace and decided to visit on my birthday for the Aaron Watson concert. We were extremely happy after our visit. The venue was small and I don't think there is a bad seat in the entire place. The steaks and food were perfect. They were one of the best sirloin and filet steaks... More

A bit pricey but the steaks are awesome! Best in town. Atmosphere is super cool too. Bucks Cadillac convertible complete with guns and coins on it is behind the bar. Lots of displays filled with country music memorabilia. Set up great for when they have live entertainment as there isnt a bad seat in the house. If your into country... More

The service was excellent as well as the food. Great selection of a variety of foods from breakfast items to lunch items. I would go back again if I go back to Bakersfield. I am not a fan of country and Western. Music but I enjoyed my visit.

This is a great place where couples or the whole family can go. We knew Buck personally and would often go on Friday or Saturday nights to dine and dance. The entertainment has always been wonderful and the museum is super. We are considered Nashville West, but we most likely were big in CW as long as they were. Buck... More
