Scott Mueller, co-owner of local Scotty’s Saloon with his wife Dina, has dreamed of opening a fine dining restaurant since the early ‘70s. “I was inspired by The Magic Time Machine in San Antonio. I wanted to create a unique steak experience. Since opening Scotty’s Saloon, Dina and I have wanted to do something special with the original General Store here on the property. This building is more than 100 years old. Now, both dreams have come to fruition. We opened Scotty’s Steakhouse Scotch and Prime inside the old store.”
This restaurant is a labor of love. Scott and Dina built every table. Dina’s eye for detail decorated the room from top to bottom, tying in elements of the bar outside while staying true to the room’s history. The restaurant has eight tables. It’s intimate, it’s charming, and the food is outstanding. Scott says, “I’ve spent 60 years perfecting steak. The beef is the best of the best: Angus beef grown within a 100 mile radius of here. We have an 8oz filet, a bone-in ribeye, a bone-in NY strip, and a porterhouse on the menu. Each steak is fire-grilled to perfection, complete with grill marks. Our seafood is fresh-caught, never frozen. Nothing is pre-cooked. Our sides, like fully loaded mashed potatoes and creamed spinach, are served family style. The dessert menu changes weekly, and includes a variety of cheesecakes, carrot cake and chocolate cake. The full bar at Scotty’s Steakhouse Scotch and Prime is complete with fine scotches and whiskeys.”
Your night at Scotty’s doesn’t have to end after dessert. Take a step outside the steakhouse, and you’re in the best backyard in Texas. Scotty’s Saloon is a fantastic live music experience with an outside dance floor. Music genres range from country and western to rock ‘n roll. Yard games (think cornhole!) dot the expansive, eclectic yard. There’s truly something for everyone. The bar is also a full-service, always-made-from-scratch restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating available. Scott says, “After 55 years of no updates, we’re excited to announce we’ll be adding A/C to the bar area very soon!”
Scotty’s Saloon is open Wednesday–Sunday. The venue is available seven days a week for parties and special events. Scotty’s Steakhouse Scotch and Prime is open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 6pm-10pm. Reservations are required at the steakhouse. Have a small business meeting or presentation coming up? Host it at Scotty’s Steakhouse Scotch and Prime. It’s an evening your clients won’t soon forget!
