This is a quaint little museum. We went there for lunch on a Friday - their website isn't really all that user friendly - geared more for live entertainment arrangements, I guess, and though the Museum is open at 11 AM, the kitchen is not until 5 PM. So we went elsewhere for lunch and came back afterwards. Fee is... More

I'm a Bakersfield local but I love going to this place. The food and music are great (I love when the Buckaroos play) and for those that like country music it's a must visit.

If you're looking for Sunday brunch in Bakersfield, this is the place to go. The food is just awesome. It's great for families with young kids or teenagers. Omelet station, waffle station, breakfast choices and lunch choices, desserts, plus your non-alcoholic drinks are included (and two mimosas per adult). Look no further for the perfect Sunday brunch in Bakersfield.

So happy with the quality of the food and service! Great selection of meats (love the extra thick cut bacon! ) the service was good, and the atmosphere unique. Love the saloon theme, stage, and museum articles in glass case's around the whole place. Big mimosas included with brunch were a nice touch.

Good food, prices a bit high but the historical part for country music makes it a worth while stop. Lots of memorabilia to view while waiting and good country music to dance off the calories with!

Spending one night in Bakersfield, decided to check out the Crystal Palace, it is worth your time if you are a country music fan. Did not eat, had a couple drinks and the local history is very interesting. Would go back for a concert.

We went for the Sunday Buffet, food was very good and service was great as well. Lots of pictures and Buck Owens memorabilia on the walls. Enjoyed the brunch but not being a big country western music fan would not likely go for a dinner show.

Great place to see local and touring music artists in a smaller, more intimate setting. Fun local music history museum. Good service, lots of parking. Some events sell out fast, so be proactive.
