THE BIRTH OF HARRY'S HIDEOUT
Welcome to Harry's Hideout. In 2010, Founder Chris Stockdale opened "Mighty Dogs Cafe" in Crawfordsville, In.
In 2013, he opened an updated version with farm-to-table ingredients and weekly from scratch comfort food menu items in the downtown entertainment district of Austin, Tx. Voted "Best Dogs in Austin" and receiving high praise for it's healthy yet hearty menu,Mighty Dogs Cafe and Bistro received multiple awards and recognition. The unique location, an old flophouse near historical Rail Road tracks on the downtown's west side, soon became compromised as adjacent property owners sold their parcels to high-end investment groups seeking to expand their high rise builds and the location was closed after 3 years.
In 2021, following the death of his wife, Chris decided to relocate his 2-year-old son, Achilles, back to his Indiana hometown. Harry's Hideout is located in the counties first bank, built in 1840, and was conceived as a 1930's, Chicago speakeasy-themed bar and family restaurant. Harry's sits across from the historic Montgomery County courthouse where Circuit Court Judge Harry Siamas presides. A place to get away and still feel like home while enjoying delicious, high-quality entrees, having a beer, and watching a Cubs game. Always fresh and good, always family friendly. We welcome you to Harry's Hideout. Shhhhh...it's a secret
