Description: The Crystal Palace Saloon and Restaurant is located on the corner of Fifth and Allen Streets in historic downtown Tombstone, Arizona. Delve into a delectible assortment of Southwest cuisine. The mouthwatering ribs are world famous and your tastebuds will scream with delight when you bite into one of the New York Strip steaks. The ingenious array of cleaverly named certified angus beef burgers will leave you wanting. The best food in the west hands down!

“Loud music, slow service, so-so food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014

We had a late lunch at the Crystal Palace Saloon on Father's Day. The place was not packed by any means and we were seated right away and promised that our server would be right with us. She showed up about 10 minutes later to take our order and was a very pleasant girl, just not very fast to take or bring our order. The music was blasting so loud, we could barely talk and when the food finally came, was nothing spectacular. I had the nachos, which were tri-colored tortilla chips right out of a bag, topped with canned cheese sauce, about a tablespoon of meat, some tomotoes, sour cream, and guacamole. My daughters each had hot dogs, which they said were good and my husband and mother-in-law share a plate of sliders, which gave them both a pretty bad bout of gas not long after eating them. I think the thing that bothered me the most about the Crystal Palace was that they had huge framed displays of several of their calendars prominently displayed right beside our table. I'm sure younger people, especially men would enjoy the scantily clad girls of the Crystal Palace, but it made my daughters very uncomfortable to have pictures of girls bent wearing g-strings bent over the bar. I know that many of the people who visit Tombstone are on the rowdy side and enjoy this type of thing, but the owners would be well advised to offer other seating to families with children or display these pictures in the men's room, where they might be better appreciated.

“"Tattoo'd Showgirl Waitresses"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2014 via mobile

It was relatively quiet, when we visited, so our server was very attentive. Great building. Beautiful interior. Good food (although my steak came out rarer than I requested). Good portion sizes, and the waitresses all dress as "Western Show Girls"............. Which is nice....... Although the really glamorous ones, from earlier in the day, had all gone off shift, by the time we ate.

“A bit disappointed in this spot...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

Great place to hear live music and play pool. Food seems to be their second element of importance. The food was good and the waiter was nice...but food was not their first priority - just our opinion.

“Great Food and Friendly Service”

While visiting a friend in Sierra Vista he brought us to Tombstone. I didn't realize they had restaurants there. This place is great. The service and food were really good. Enjoyed it all!
