We stopped at the Crowbar for breakfast and had the most wonderful experience. Quick, friendly service, great food, authentic place. You must try the pancakes. Heaven!

I've been some to places in my time, but this place was awful. This is due to the heavy set waitress who made our visit as unwelcome as possible. She should be fired, but is probably related to the owner (population 31 in Shoshone). The problem is, she does this rudeness on purpose knowing that people are one time visitors,... More

We stopped for lunch at the Crowbar Cafe and we were very pleased. It is a cute little spot with a few tables and spaces at the counter. The patty melt was awesome! The staff was pleasant and they have free wifi ! Worth the stop!

All the good things said about the food and service remain true. Especially notable is the quality of Jake's homemade salsa for our very favorite, the California Omelete with rye toast! CAUTION--Lately we have driven over twice from Pahrump to find the cafe closed! The latest was today, Father's Day Sunday! We were told they were "cleaning," which is good,... More

The clerk at the Shoshone Inn recommended this restaurant across the street from the motel and believe me, she did not steer us wrong. The food was good, the service was fast and the server was friendly, and the place was decorated with the most fascinating collection of vintage décor. We loved it!

Passing through & gasping for a drink this saloon was a welcome step back in time...it even had the sheriffs sitting at a table. Friendly service, good food and good coffee. I would happily go again!

We called here for lunch and were not disappointed. Warm welcome and good food and lots of interest outside with exhibits from the nearby museum.

We stopped here after our drive from Vegas and before reaching the Death Valley. This place it is in the middle of nowhere and the little village around is very characteristics and very very little. It was around 11am and the place was empty. We ordered pancakes and eggs and everything was good. There is no mobile signal in there,... More

When you're out in the middle of nowhere and you pass through this little tiny town of Shoshone California try and explore it. The food here at Crowbar is great and so is the service's
