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

So much amazing history here, this being the former hangout (and according to local legend, still a haunt) of the legendary Wyatt Earp and his brothers. A saloon and Wild West history museum all rolled into one.

I really don’t have anything negative at all to say about this place. The food was exceptional, the service was great. We’ll definitely be back. Oh, and the history to boot. Really cool.

We did not have a good waiter . His name was Jonathan. He never listened to what we had to say . He walked away before the conversation was over with and then brought stuff we did not ask for because he never once really...listened he was all over the place ! The fish was not good and there was other stuff on the plate like hamburger or something that should not have been there it was gross! He said he would take 10% off the who;e bill . He did not and then argued about it!!! NO MANAGER or is that POOR MANAGEMENT? Over a 2 hr ride to get there. Very disappointed!!!More

Saturday at supper time was very crowded at The Palace. Nevertheless, we were seated within a few minutes. Our server was so nice and friendly, wish I could remember her name to give her credit. My meal, a whiskey burger and fries was perfect.

We had a really great time at the Palace when we stopped in Prescott for a night. I read some previous reviews, and we did not have the same experience when it comes to the mask situation. The staff was very aware of public safety...and still managed to provide a fun experience. The food was good and came out fast. Jasmine was our server and she was fantastic. The campfire burger was really good and so was the french dip sandwich. Some may feel it's 'touristy' but we had a blast and thoroughly enjoyed the theme. After our early dinner we walked around for a bit and ended up upstairs at their bar for the evening. We can't wait to come back.More

The history and setting is great, but it doesn't make up for the horrible service, rudeness and unprofessional staff. Our party got kicked out for complaining about the rudeness of a waitress over their inconsistent and ridiculous mask policy by staffers NOT wearing masks themselves....I was scolded for not wearing putting my mask back on when I got up from the table to search for our waitress - a second time - because she was no where to be found. Then we got bounced for complaining about that scolding by a manager and bouncer NOT wearing masks themselves. It was unbelievable. Worst staff and management of any restaurant ever patronized. I was a regular customer who took friends there frequently. NEVER again!More

We arrived at 8pm for a quick, late dinner. Advertised close time was 10pm. We were informed they were only serving bar food as the kitchen was closing early. But that worked for us. At 8:50, my husband wanted to sit at the bar for...a shot of bourbon but was told the bar was already closed. Food we had ordered was average at best and anything with a sauce was totally drowning in sauce making flavors hard to distinguish. Memorabilia and history around the room was fascinating and worth the gander and read. Glad we went but wont waste the time again in the future.More

Definitely a tourist trap, but worth seeing if only for the building. The pastrami sandwich was a miss, but the hamburger & fries was outstanding. Shelby, our waitress, was also outstanding.

Had lunch at The Palace while visiting Prescott. Going to The Palace is like stepping back into history. The food was fine but the character of the place is the real draw.
