  • The chicken fried steak is so tender, it just melts in your mouth. The breading they use is light, not heavy....and don't even get me started on the garlic mashed potatoes. They'll make your taste bud...  more »
  • Great food, and if you have time a small museum of country western memorabilia. Buck Owens the owner was a regular performer up until he passed away. If you stay past 7:00 pm they have live music to d...  more »
  • The Crystal Palace provides a close-up, live performance experience and large food portions, so everyone leaves happy. One of the best steaks in Bakersfield. Definitely the best Sunday brunch in Baker...  more »

  • The steaks were dry and overdone, not 'awful' but at least 'ok'. Oh and I found a chunk of glass in my drink, nearly choked on it. They brought the manager to apologize, I think largely to see if we were going to throw a fit or not. We were amiable, I honestly don't think it was done intentionally. But still, they could have at least removed the soda from the bill! Call me old fashioned but I don't think one should have to pay for sugar water with glass in it. Rather than fight over a couple of bucks we just decided to avoid this place in the future. I'll give it a star for ambiance at least
  • The best breakfast buffet ever. Large selection of delicious items, very good service and an impressive Mimosa. Senior price was $18:95 and worth every dime.
  • Last night at the Crystal Palace..., We had some great seats, great food and even better entertainment. I could not have asked for a better night out with some friends/co-workers. The Owner of the place I work for puts on these Guitar Master Events throughout the year and this year we had our Company Christmas Party here at this very special event..., Christmas with the Cranktones!!! The entire staff was friendly and helpful. The place was setup very well. Despite it being a packed house there was still plenty of room for parking and it was very well lit. I would recommend the Crystal Palace to anyone for a great evening out... Merry Christmas Everyone! Remember, Jesus is the Reason for the Season. MRod>
  • This place is a memory road of good times with family getting together. Beautiful place it is, dinner room,show stage, bar. Shops, gallery walls of Owens. He sure did put Bakersfield on the map fur sure. The old Bakersfield arch is here too. If you love country music this is definitely a must see museum like place of Buck Owens to see.
  • Pretty cool building and lovely wait staff. Live music is always fun, but I'm just not into the country theme in general. The food was absolute garbage for the price. My brother ordered a steak which was almost identical to the ones they serve at Applebees for a fraction of the cost. You're really paying for the entertainment, so if you go here I suggest sticking with alcohol and just go for the music, don't bother with the overpriced, low quality food.
