The Eberhard is Henderson's New Watering Hole

We were wowed from the moment we walked into The Eberhard - the new establishment on Henderson Avenue with the crisp black and white exterior. The first thing you'll notice is the expansive bar that stretches the length of the entire building, along with a rather large horsedrawn carriage. The carriage is an homage to the lineage of the owners: Andrew, Alex, Peter and Adie von Gontard – the great-grandsons of Anheuser-Busch/Budweiser founder Adolphus Busch. The Eberhard gets its name from great-grandfather, Eberhard Anheuser.

The bar is a point of pride – 65 feet in length – making it the longest bar in Dallas. 

TVs are posted every few feet, making it an ideal spot to gather to watch a game with friends.

Sunlight streams in to eating areas, keeping it feeling light and fresh. 

Aside from the bar, there are community tables where you can eat and drink, two-top private dining tables, and a lounge area with luxurious leather sofas and coffee tables.

This area can be reserved, and offers bottle service as the night progresses.

There is also ample patio seating.

Unlike some places where the focus is on the ambiance, the food is just as interesting. The menu is simple, but delicious elevated bar food. Appetizers include offerings like a local cheese and charcuterie board, sliders and house-made potato chips with beer cheese. For dinner, we sampled tacos and a burger but they also offer salads, flatbreads, wings, and desserts.

Tacos can be edited by subbing the cheese fondue with queso fresco to make them gluten free. 

Farmhouse Burger on a fresh-baked brioche bun...mmm!

Cubano Sliders. They didn't last long!

The drink menu is much more extensive, featuring several signature cocktails in addition to a full bar, gourmet mixers, large wine list, and a host of bottled beers, including quite a few local craft brews.

The Eberhard Smash offers a kick you don't expect. 

The Henderson Cooler was crisp and refreshing

 Custom Sangria

I also tried a custom red wine and bourbon sangria, a la bartender Dorian. Just as good if not better than the curated cocktails. Once you're finished with your meal, you can head upstairs to the loft for a nightcap.

The fireplace adds cozy ambiance
