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

The atmosphere is awesome, feels like you just walked into the 1800’s. Had the Backcountry burger with Cowboy Coleslaw - was absolutely delicious. Our waitress Crystal was very attentive and was very outgoing. Very memorable addition to our trip.

The palace was not my destination however, that’s where I ended up for my dinner. I was solo and I sat at the bar. I ordered a New York strip with a Caesar salad. I gave this place 4 stars. It wasn’t fabulous, however, I...ate everything and enjoyed my dinner and the atmosphere was great.More

I have been here before but I can tell the food tastes better and the service is much improved. We ordered pulled pork sliders, street tacos, cheeseburger w/bacon and they were all delicious! They have a new owner and he has made some great changes....We will be back for sure. Great Place!More

If you’re in to western history and really good food, this is the place for you. Just walking in to the place you pass by the original bar, which puts you in the right frame of mind. The steaks are incredible. All the servers wear...period attire which is a nice touch. Good food, good wine, and plenty atmosphere. I will try very hard to make a stop there on every trip to Prescott.More

I was surprised at just how many whiskies were available. Tried a 16 year Aberlour which was fantastic! The price also wasn't bad! I was shocked at how reasonable the cost of any of the whiskies were, when you know the cost of the bottle....Burger was superb! Service was also good.More

We went to the palace for dinner. Ordered steak bites as an appetizer. I have never had steak bites like that before a little like breaded dry meat. Ordered a prime rib which we could barely chew. Baked potato was on point. If I ate...there again, I would order possibly a hamburger. The service was excellent.More

We wanted to have a nice lunch on Whiskey Row and went back to The Palace. The Cob salad is awesome, as is the lunch soup and sandwich (Rueben and corn chowder). Our bartender was also our server, Holly, and she was incredible, even though...she was extremely busy!More

If you are into the history of the area, you will enjoy seeing The Palace. But the noisy inside was jam packed with people so we chose to eat outside at the picnic benches. The food was just ok. Location was great on whisky Row...and adjacent to many shops to peruse.More

This restaurant on Whiskey Row has a great atmosphere and history, loved the ambiance. Our server was charming and attentive. The food was just okay. The thing that makes me not want to come back is the automatic 3% "service charge" for "increased wages" NOT...DISCLOSED until you receive your check. This seems to be becoming the "norm" at many restaurants and is offensive.More

From saloon doors entry with the original, expansive wooden bar to the historic artifacts and themed dining area, this is a must see. The food was good although portions smaller than expected. Service by costumed staff was excellent.

I love the whole atmosphere of this place, but the staff just really did not seem to enjoy their jobs. I am not sure if this if from lack in pay or just because it is always busy. Dinner was okay, but my steak was...on the cool side, but my husband said his was tasty. This really did not make sense to me since I asked my steak to be medium well and he just wanted his medium. They did have live music which we enjoyed.More
