I dined for the first time at the Palms Crystal Bar in 1967. The interior is unchanged and well preserved. The food is great, especially the Chicken Noodle Soup!

Great little bar and restaurant to take the family for a trip to the past. Palms Crystal Bar still features much of the decorating details you would have found five or six decades ago. It is a local classic in Port Huron.

It was good but nothing special as far as I was concerned. The chicken was average and I prefer the ribs at the smokehouse at Lakeshore when it is open.

The decor will take you back to the 1950's. They are best known for their Broasted Chicken. The new owners have added to the menu and offer a great selection of dishes. This is a family restaurant and has something for everyone. You have to go their at least once.

Old time recipe, one of the few "Chicken in the Rough" restaurants left and they have the best, old time, fried chicken dinners anywhere. The Pork Chops are excellent too. Great BBQ too.

I was traveling locally and thought I'd try the place out. Good atmosphere, good food and fun staff, all in all a great night dining in at a unique diner-type restaurant. Return visit in the take out side....brutal!! Food was still good but despite the counter mans best efforts the cooks were unorganized and couldn't get it together. Took 30... More

Their chicken is great! Chicken in the Rough chicken is extra crispy without the grease! And I enjoy the potato wedges.

Description
In 1936 Beverly and Rubye Osborne were driving west from Oklahoma to California. They had no reason to be joyful. They were middle aged and the Depression had wiped out their savings. On this particular afternoon it seemed that everyone in the state was attempting to escape the famine of the Oklahoma dust bowl. With not much more than their meager belongings and a basket of fried chicken, Beverly Osborne coaxed his Ford pickup across the barren prairie. Suddenly, a bump in the rutted road scattered the chicken and basket. Picking it up, Rubye complained "this is really Chicken in the Rough®." With that chance remark, a fortune was born. Beverly turned his truck around and headed back home. A man who, on instinct, had made a modest fortune and lost it - Beverly reasoned that "fingers were made before forks" and that chicken could be a cheap source of food at a time when incomes were sparse. Beverly learned from his previous business experience and failures that every business must provide customer satisfaction by identifying customers' needs and how to satisfy those needs better than anyone else. Soon, with the money he had received from the sale of his wife's wedding ring, he had an operation serving fried chicken with shoestring potatoes, hot biscuits and honey. That was the delectable meal that started "Fast Food - Fried Chicken Franchising" - long before McDonald's or Kentucky Fried Chicken.
