By the time we got checked in at the Grand Highland Hotel we needed a bite to eat and were directed to The Place right down the street. It's a very interesting place with lots of history and excellent food.

I knew this was going to be an interesting place to eat when there were two cowboys, with guns on their hips, greeting you outside the front entrance. The inside is like entering an old cowboy movie saloon. The servers are dressed in period outfits...More

The Palace is still the oldest frontier saloon in Arizona and the most well-known and historic restaurant and saloon in the state. In the late 1870s, Wyatt Earp, Virgil Earp and Doc Holliday were patrons of the Palace. Virgil and his wife Allie lived in Prescott where Virgil owned a saw mill at Thumb Butte and was Town Constable. Wyatt and his other brother, Morgan, visited Virgil in Prescott before they left for Tombstone. Doc was on a winning streak on Whiskey Row (possibly at The Palace) where he won $10,000 playing poker. He joined the Earps eight months later in Tombstone. On July 14th, 1900, The Palace was destroyed by the Whiskey Row fire. The ornately carved 1880s Brunswick Bar, which is still in use, was carried to safety across the street to the plaza by patrons. y 1901, The Palace Hotel and Bar, complete with Chinese restaurant and barber shop was back in business. Today it maintains the history, grandeur and wild west atmosphere. ​
