Bars and nightlife in Fredericksburg

Top bars

BBQ Restaurant
“Good food, great drinks and live music. What more could you want? Pet friendly? Yep! They even allow pets in the outside seating area. (and will bring them a fresh bowl of water) Our favorites are the nacho construction kit with beef fajita meat. (It comes with other options like chicken and ground beef but their beef fajita meat is the bomb!) Also, fried catfish, BBQ Pig ribs and smashed potatoes (Yumm!), chicken fried steak or chicken, homemade tamales, it's all great. They even have burgers and salads. Drinks you ask? Try their famous jalapeño margarita. But beware- its strong. They also have a full bar and a variety of beers and wines to choose from. Checkout their website to see the live music schedule.”

Beer Garden
“If you still wanna party after dinner then I would suggest Silver Creek. I must say that they have a great bar with indoor and outdoor seating. If you head that way, make sure to ask for Gabe, he's makes the best drinks in town and is known for coming up with his own unique recipes! ”

Common entertainment include music, song, and games, enjoyed in an atmosphere of Gemütlichkeit.

Karaoke Bar
“This is where most of the rowdy folks end up after last call on Main Street. Don't get your hopes up for olde world charm but if your engine is still revving at midnight you might give Buc's a try. Easy walk home...”
