It all started in 1881 when trappers, hunters and cowboys traded deer antlers for beer or whiskey at Albert Friedrich's saloon. Now, the saloon/museum's Hall of Horns, Hall of Feathers and Hall of Fins house not only the largest, but also some of the most impressive collections of native and exotic wildlife around. If you're squeamish about mounted deer heads, fish and fowl, then don't go. If you're awed by how large deer antlers can grow to be, by just how large of a mouth that a large-mouth bass can have, or at the wingspan of native turkeys, then you'll love this place. You can even bring in a set of antlers or a stuffed fish to trade at the bar for a whiskey or sarsaparilla.
The Friendly Spot lives up to its name, providing an inviting place for patrons - and their kids and pets - to hang out. This family-friendly ice house even has a play area where parents can watch their kids play while enjoying a drink from their menu of 250 bottled beers. Dogs are welcome too, so bring the whole family and enjoy the sunshine. From time to time, you'll be treated to a movie on their huge projection screen. Their menu features tasty bar snacks like sandwiches, hot dogs, and nachos. Factor in the friendly service, and this place really is a perfect place to enjoy a Lone Star on a beautiful day.
Head over to the Southtown neighborhood for something different at this brewpub. The huge copper brewing tanks here figure prominently, and a sizable patio offers a view of the tranquil river. Along with the variety of beers, it offers standard bar fare such as burgers and chicken wings, as well as a few surprises including sautéed chicken and artichokes and grilled salmon. Try a four-ounce sample of the Smoked Dark Ale or the creamy Stout.
This ultra-casual bar called La Tuna Grill provides the perfect backdrop for drinking a few brews, getting a little sun and seeing a lot of local color. A few tables are inside, but most of the action takes place on the patio, under a canopy of huge pecan trees. For a list of beers, ask the bartender or just look at the bottle caps blanketing the patio. Delicious food on the menu is a big draw, too. This is also a family friendly establishment, offering a kids menu.
An enjoyable place to relax with friends or catch up on the latest buzz in the neighborhood, TBA is a sleek venue serving fine cocktails, libations and deliciously wholesome food for eager patrons. Due to its enviable location in the middle of the town, the bar enjoys a steady footfall throughout the day. There is plenty of outdoor-seating for those in the mood to grab some sunshine. Pets are welcome too.
