Stuttgarden Tavern Now Open at New Location

GALVESTON, Texas (June 27th, 2018) – On Friday, June 29, Stuttgarden Tavern will be moving its original Strand location to the Historic Armour Building at 111 23rd Street next to Saengerfest Park on Galveston Island.

The new Stuttgarden Tavern will feature three floors. The 1st floor will include a full service restaurant and dog-friendly patio, a walk-up gelato & dessert Counter, a To-Go Bier & Wine Bar and 12 televisions. Inspired by a Munich Oktoberfest Tent, the 2nd floor full service Bierhall will include a full liquor bar, 40 taps featuring German & Craft Beers and 18 televisions. The 3rd Floor Roof Garden complete with its full liquor bar, 40 draft taps and 14 televisions will provide a panoramic view of the Port of Galveston, Saengerfest Park and the Historic Strand. The new location will also feature live music, buzztime trivia, board games, golden tee, buck hunter, dart boards and a pool table.

With the desire and a love for German beer, Derek, his wife Shannon with business partners John Mortensen, Eric Jones and Danny Nelson opened their original location on the Galveston Strand in July 2014. Later, with their success in Galveston, the Stuttgarden Tavern crew expanded to Texas City in April 2016; to Kemah in October 2016; to the Houston Heights in October 2017.
Stuttgarden Tavern pays homage with its name to Stuttgart, Germany – the capital of southwest Germany’s Baden-Württemberg state; the pronunciation of the restaurant is (STOOT-gard-en). The restaurant focuses on German inspired, made in-house fresh food, along with offering a large variety of German and craft beers, cocktails and wine.

Stuttgarden’s Bavarian pretzel, sauerkraut balls, house-made bratwurst, jaeger schnitzel and stroganoff are all standout items on the German side, but they don’t just serve German inspired food. Their appetizers, salads, wings, burgers, sandwiches and dinner entrees will satisfy customers craving traditional American and European fare with items like Irish Nachos, the John a Ten Burger, Eric’s Cheese Steak, Bacon crusted Mac & Cheese and Traditional Shepherd’s pie.

The Irish Nachos are a fan favorite in Galveston. They aren’t really Irish, but are a combination of waffle fries, nacho cheese, minced meat, bacon, chives and sour cream. They taste like a loaded baked potato.
Warsteiner, Spaten, Hofbräu, Paulaner and Bitburger are German mainstay beers that you can find on tap at Stuttgarden.

The restaurant is open seven days a week from 11:00 am to 2:00 am, offering a full bar, fresh food until 1:00 am, 44 TVs, large dog-friendly patio, all in a family friendly environment. Stuttgarden welcomes all ages on the 1st floor, but around 9:00 p.m. is when families can expect the 2nd & 3rd floor to feel more like a bar.

During the week, you can find regular specials: Monday – $12 bratwurst and beer night; Tuesday – local pint night, trivia and all beers are $1 off; Wednesday – $15 steak night and $10 off wine bottles; Thursday – $8 schnitzel and $6 beer flights.
