Very unique dining option in the middle of really nothing else. This pub is located in what looks to be an old abandoned schoolhouse. Mark, the owner, was very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Quick and good food. Don't forget to taste his beer! Great place to stop and grab a bite and brew while passing thru.

What a cool place! It is an old school house, and the owner, Mark, is a one man show. He is friendly and helpful and working his butt off to bring his dream to life. The beer is good and the food is tasty and the history of the building is awesome. It is definitely worth a visit. If you... More

Anyone who doesn't rate this place well doesn't appreciate good beer and atmosphere. I've been to a lot of breweries and this place is by far my favorite. The owner is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to beer. Food is great def recommend a visit.

If you are looking for some quality handmade beer in a unique place, Eola Schoolhouse is the place. Mark will give you a wonderful walk through of the master crafts he created in this quaint place in Western Texas. Eola's school house was built in 1928 and was last used for instruction in 1984, then there was Mark. Creating awesome... More

I was driving around San Angelo looking for a place to eat and saw the "Eola" sign and decided to head that way. After finding myself in the middle of nowhere, I stopped to google this town and Eola Schoolhouse kept coming up, so went to check out. The building is old, I was the only customer there (and female... More

This has to be the dirtiest bar and supposedly restaurant I have ever been in. I cannot believe other brewerys and food places in San Angelo buy this beer to re-sell. It is horrible. The owner, Mark is drunk or hungover most of the time and if he is hungover, he will not serve you without gettibng mad. Horrible service... More

Drove all the way from San Angelo and got there at 7:00 PM. Owner was already drunk. Said all he had was brisket and potato salad. Said he had been cooking all day and wasn't going to cook any more. ??? We left and went to The Gin in Wall.

My brother,sisterinlaw, and it went out to Eola yesterday to see how the place had progressed since we were there several years back. We were expecting that improvements had been made and the food would make the drive well worth it. What we found as we entered the building was that the hallway had not been swept since our first...
