If I rated this place for the young lady who answers the phone, I'd give it a ONE. She was unfriendly, short, boring, and offered NO information or suggestions. However, we ignored her lack of training and drove over there anyways. Everyone else we ran into was quite helpful and professional. We wanted to skip dinner, so we arrived just before the show and were lucky to get a seat at the bar. The entertainment was great.

great show, good food. Very little to not like here. If you enjoy country music and good homestyle food, the Crystal Palace is a sure bet. They also have a statue gallery of country legends and plenty of Buck Owens memerobolia on display

This is a really fun place to go with friends and have a great dinner and to see some really good entertainment. It reminds me of the Wild Horse Saloon in Nashville, but smaller (and better food). The interior is decorated with many items of Buck's and just fun stuff to look at. People have a fun time dancing too.

Good food, great entertainment! The chicken fried steak is one of the very best I have ever had. The rest of the food ordered was good. Servers are fast and friendly. The entertainers are some of the very best! Great place to go if you love country music.

My husbands company has an annual Christmas dinner for employees at the Crystal Palace and Museum. They have a country music band that are always great and dancing. The food is delicious - steak, chicken, potatoes, vegetables, salad and yummy desserts. The atmosphere is neat with old car in bar area, photo's of country music entertainers and some country outfits of famous people. A rustic country feel!.
