After leaving Death Valley Junction I was famished and the Crowbar cafe sorted that out. It's a really cute traditional diner with an extensive menu. Vegetarians are catered for and the portions are a good size. You won't be leaving hungry. Our waitress was completely...More

An unexpected overnight stay in Shoshone led us to the Crowbar Cafe which is full of character, a broad menu, good food and friendly service.

After leaving Death Valley on a motorcycle, we were hot and hungry. Stopped for gas across the street and thought we'd give this place a shot. Young gal was busy but super efficient. Wish I knew her name so could give her credit! She gave...More

Food was good. We had breakfasts and dinners here our 2 day stay. Close to our hotel. Breakfast had pretty much that standard fare, eggs, bacon, etc. Solid food. Generous portions.

Crowbar is a quaint place with very good food and very good service. There is nothing that much around but the owners made this place very welcoming.

Had breakfast here a couple of times. Didn't try the coffee, but the meal was great. Traditional bacon and eggs with tomato slices..hard to beat when you're out in the desert, and they did a fine job. Waitress was cheerful, local "characters" were interesting.

Shoshone is a tiny town. On the main highway through town is a museum, a gas station and market, a post office, and this restaurant/bar/music venue. I had chicken wings and potato salad. The chicken wings were the driest ever and the potato salad was...More
