The historic Hays City Store first opened in the early 1980s as a gas station and convenience store at the site of the former town of Hays City (1908).
The store was a godsend for local residents, who were relieved not to have to travel to neighboring towns for gasoline and basic necessities.
A café was added to the store in the 1990s, and people loved their breakfast and lunch counter!
The Hays City Store, which had been remodeled after new owners, re-opened in March 2015 as a restaurant and bar that serves scratch-made Texas cuisine as well as handcrafted cocktails and local beverages. The name “Hays City Store” was familiar to customers for over 30 years, so the decision to keep it was easy.
In October 2017, Hays City Store underwent yet another transformation, now known as Hays City Store & Ice House. Tamra and Travis Tindol had a fantastic, serious problem on their hands – they needed more room! Consequently, The Ice House was constructed on the property which features additional bar and cocktail seating, a draft beer system with 40 taps, 5 TVs for sports enthusiasts, and a wood fire pizza oven. A stage was erected in the courtyard, near the oak-shaded beer garden, and live music is performed regularly. Hays City Store & Ice House has something for everyone and is just a quick drive from The Grand Old Camino Motorcourt.
