The Palace is still the oldest frontier saloon in Arizona and the most well-known and historic restaurant and saloon in the state. In the late 1870s, Wyatt Earp, Virgil Earp and Doc Holliday were patrons of the Palace. Virgil and his wife Allie lived in Prescott where Virgil owned a saw mill at Thumb Butte and was Town Constable. Wyatt and his other brother, Morgan, visited Virgil in Prescott before they left for Tombstone. Doc was on a winning streak on Whiskey Row (possibly at The Palace) where he won $10,000 playing poker. He joined the Earps eight months later in Tombstone. On July 14th, 1900, The Palace was destroyed by the Whiskey Row fire. The ornately carved 1880s Brunswick Bar, which

My dish was very good. Blackened chicken, the rice , and the beans were all good. The other 2 with order fish and chips. Absolutely terrible. Frozen fish stick about equal.

Neat place. We wanted to experience something different before heading home. So we ventured to Prescott. Needing an afternoon snack and cold beverage, we stopped into The Palace. The food, service, and atmosphere all exceeded our expectations.

Loved this place. Stopped in a couple of times for a cold beer and appetizers. So much history! Lots of artifacts displayed throughout the restaurant and bar area. Also had a nice patio in the back. Service at the bar was excellent.

I was a bit hesitant to stop in and have lunch. It looked like the typical tourist trap. But what the heck. I stopped in, walked around, and then sat at the bar for lunch. The bartender gave me excellent service. I started with a...beer sampler. I wasn't fond of any of the beers I tasted. I ordered the salmon salad and it was fresh and big! I'm glad is stopped in to the oldest bar in Arizona. It was fund to see the staff dressed up in period clothes.More

Dropped by while in town for an after dinner whiskey to check out the historic location. Great atmosphere for the tourists with saloon costumes and a damn good whiskey selection. We did not try the food since we were there for a nightcap. Staff was...friendly and helpful. This is a good place to sit at the bar and take in the history.More

My wife and I stopped by The Palace while we were visiting Prescott. This is the oldest restaurant in Prescott and we were told it's also the oldest business in the state. We were there on Tuesday evening so there was a nice happy hour...with their appetizers and street tacos. We tried the steak bites which I enjoyed but it wasn't really my wife's favorite. The street tacos were pretty good though. We tried their Old Fashioned and Whiskey Sour and both were pretty good too. The waitresses were all dressed in old-western style outfits, which was fun (probably not for them though). They had live music on the back patio, which is where we sat. All in all, the Palace is a fun restaurant to visit while in Prescott.More

The restaurant which is over 100 years old is worthseeing, but when you get a great deal on a good cut of prime rib it becomes even better.

We waited about an hour and 20 minutes for our food. When it finally arrived, we were disappointed. I ordered the fish and chips that claimed to be a corona battered cod. It came from a box out of the freezer. My daughter had chicken...tenders which were some of the saltiest, tasteless chicken tenders I’ve ever tasted. At no point during our almost 2 hour stay did management walk around the restaurant and check on tables or food. It was a terrible experience and we will never go back.More

The Palace Saloon and Restaurant was constructed in 1901 on Whiskey Row in Prescott, Arizona. The staff are dressed in old western style clothing some with pistols and knives. There is a full bar and a good selection of food on the menu. We were...there for drinks this time but we have eaten there in the past. It is an interesting site to visit.More
