Stone Eagle Beer Garden

Kind of classy but not really.
HappeningsDrink Menu

A little bit Rolling Stones but a whole lot Willie.

Quirky & kitschy. Wayward & free. The Stone Eagle perfectly marries German culture with the Texas way of life… inspired by Oktoberfest but rooted deep in the Lone Star State.

Food & Drink

We’d bet our bottom dollar that we’ve got the best selection of beer & wine in the area. I mean, we offer over 70 beers. Good luck choosing. The food isn’t too shabby, either. How’s alligator sound? Okay, okay… we’ve got the “normal” offerings, too, like french fries or fried pickles. Something for you, and something for the kiddos. Sounds like a win-win situation.

Entertainment

If the northeast side of the square is rockin’, you better come a knockin’! The Stone Eagle is the only venue in town to offer live music every weekend. Occasionally that live music is… well… karaoke. (Who doesn’t love Journey’s Don’t Stop Believing???) Depending on the night, we guess you best warm up your vocal chords or bust out those boots for a little boot scootin’!

Family Friendly

“Look at you. You have a baby… in a bar.” Good thing we’re not a bar. We’re a beer garden. And, yes, please bring your baby! Heck, bring the whole brood! The Stone Eagle is family friendly. We mean it. We mean it so much that we’ve got a dedicated kid’s area full of toys & games. So, when it’s been one of those days, and mom or dad needs a drink, come on in!

All of the charm. None of the fuss.

 

We’re pretty proud of the character and atmosphere we’ve created here at The Stone Eagle. Every piece, every corner, every nook & cranny at The Stone Eagle tells a story. Have you seen our bar back? We found that gem in an antique store in Lampasas, Texas. But, the story doesn’t start or end there. Our bar once served as the alter at an Episcopalian church in Houston. Dating to the 1930’s, the ladies group at the church saved money to have the oak beauty made. When the church was torn down in the 80’s, we’re sure nobody could have imagined the salvaged alter would one day morph into a bar.

Steeped in heritage.

The Stone Eagle sits on the Northeast corner of the square and was named for the stone eagles perched atop the courthouse on the north and south sides. We bet you’ve never noticed them before, eh? The heroic-sized cut stone eagles were made on site by Elmer Webb, a Comanche stone cutter, somewhere between 1939 – 1941.

In a past life, the Stone Eagle was once home to a beautifully ornate opera house. It burned to the ground in 1912. The whole area was rebuilt and served as a dry goods store, then a ladies dress shop, and, later, Buddy Hicks Real Estate. When we acquired the building, it was sans roof and crumbling to the ground. We’re pretty proud of the complete restoration of this historic building.

Why a beer garden?

Beer Gardens date back to the early 19th century. They came to be in Bavaria as a practical extension of German breweries.

Back then, brewers stored their beer barrels in cellars, where it slowly fermented. To keep the cellars cool and shady during the summer, brewers covered the ground with loose gravel and planted chestnut trees. When the Bavarian King Ludwig granted brewers the right to sell their beer on the spot, the beer garden, as we know and love it, was born.

That still doesn’t answer your question as to why we decided to put a beer garden in Comanche, Texas, does it? Here’s why: our family values getting together to eat, drink, and visit, and we have for generations! With deep roots in Texas, we created a place that combines our Texas heritage with the “more the merrier” atmosphere of a beer garden. Our family will enjoy gathering around those picnic tables for years to come, and we hope yours will, too!

Fun fact: one of our own made his career in the Army. Stationed in Germany for several years, Big Dave fell in love with German beer gardens.
