The Crystal Palace Saloon and Restaurant is a MUST stop when visiting Tombstone. Food is Excellent. They have a great selection of Burgers, Steaks, Ribs and Pizza. Personally had the Steak, which had a great flavor. The cook was spot on and had a great...flavor. The two burgers I ordered over our last trip, were the classic burger and the "Duke". The "Duke" is probably the best tasting burger I have ever had. Wasn't too sure about it when I first ordered it (has roast beef, bacon and their own BBQ sauce on it), but from the first bite, I was hooked. Was so good, I had to have another "Duke" burger the next day. It's seriously that awesome. My 17 year old ordered the ribs and they were fall off the bone tender. No other place in Tombstone can compete with the quality and taste of The Crystal Palace. Add in the historic bar and the history, and it is a MUST stop in Tombstone, for lunch or dinner. Beer was ice cold as well. Staff was always super helpful and attentive, made us feel like we were a local and had been coming there for years. Family Friendly, visited with my teenage kids and a Grandbaby, no issues whatsoever.More

Stopped by this restaurant for a late lunch/early dinner. They have a full bar and a pool table. Bar is open seating but to eat at the restaurant, you will be seated by a host. The hostess was friendly and before she took us to...a table, she informed us of several menu items that they were out of. The menu items they were out of when we were there was pizza, chicken fried steak, ribs, and milkshakes. I am curious if those items must be their signature items since they were sold out. I ended ordering their chile bowl and it was delicious. The server said the chile was homemade and the smaller portion was a decent portion. I couldn't finish the entire bowl. The server told me it was a little spicy but I didn't find it to be spicy at all. My son ordered the chicken strips and fries and he really liked them. I highly recommend this place. There was a sign that during the week, it is cash only and during the weekend they accept credit cards. At check out, the receipt has a cash price and credit card price so you can choose how you want to pay.More

Several locals told me Wyatt Earp worked here or owned it, so I had to check it out. The restaurant is open all day, but I just stopped in to take pictures and take in the history vibe. Nice people, they answered my dumb tourist...questions and let me take a bunch of pictures.More

My husband and I stopped in for a late lunch to avoids the crowded lunch and were very pleased with the quality service and fresh and tasty meals. The taco salad was very large and filling in a fresh taco shell. The server/bartender graciously brought...extra salsa and some sour cream upon request. The burger was fresh, hot and juicy and the fries were hot and tasty. The server/bartender was friendly and made us feel very welcome. This was the best meal we had while in town for several days.More

Cash only but there's an atm on the back. The bar is a work of art and the gambling tables on display are BEAUTIFUL. Cute costumes on the staff really try to set the scene of being in the 1800's

Went to visit tombstone town and went in to have lunch at the crystal palace saloon restaurant. When we walk in on the left side of the restaurant there was a very large western bar that was very cool and the staff were dressed up...like back in the the western days and that was cool. Our waitress was very nice and humorous. We ordered steak and blackened chicken and both meals were very good. We really enjoyed the food there. The restaurant has a lot of tombstone history as well. It has a small theater and it was used at one time by Deputy Marshal Virgil Earp . It was one of the first saloons in tombstone. We definitely like the building and the food. And it has a nice history as well.More

Food was great and staff was friendly. We had lunch here, so burgers and fries. But they have a good menu. You may have to wait a bit and they only accept cash (but they have their own ATM inside) Many people like to eat...here because to the historical ambiance. Not all families may feel it is family friendly b/c of the waitresses outfits and some of the décor. (nude women portraits). We really enjoyed the live music as well.More

There are only a handful of restaurants in town, and this place was recommended bya bartender across the street. I had the chicken sandwich with fries and a micro brew. It was a lot of food, and you could split it. My wife had the...same and it was good. We sat at the bar and the server was friendly and responsive. Highly recommend if you're in TombstoneMore

Over many visits going back over thirty years, I find this to be as good as it gets. They used to have Friday night dances with the dancers wearing clothes of the 1880's. FUN!

Tombstone is well worth the trip if you are interested in that time period of our Country's history. Most of the corner saloon when you first enter the town on your right hand side is a MUST see, at least for most people Yes... More
