June 28, 2016
The Dallas Cowboys and Legends Hospitality have announced a brand new restaurant at A&T Stadium. Located inside Entrance A by the Pro Shop, the Stadium Club will encompass 19,000 square feet and hold up to 650 diners at once.

The restaurant came as a result of fans clamoring for an updated version of the original Stadium Club at AT&T Stadium’s predecessor, Texas Stadium. Unlike the previous model that was only open on game days, this version will be in operation 7 days a week with added perks on game day. For Cowboys home games, the team will offer dining memberships for an all-inclusive experience for season ticket and suite holders.
“We’re thrilled to bring our fans the ultimate Dallas Cowboys dining experience right inside our team’s home at AT&T Stadium,” said Cowboys Chief Operating Officer Stephen Jones. “The Stadium Club will not only provide great dining experience, but it will also offer a game day atmosphere, that can only be captured at the stadium, every day of the week.”
Game day memberships like everything else at AT&T Stadium will not come cheap. A three-year commitment runs $3,500/year and a five year commitment is $5,000/year.
Inside the restaurant will be extensive video walls surrounding each bar and 20 other flat screens throughout the space. The Stadium Club will feature signature hand-crafted cocktails, wood-fired specialties and Italian stone oven flatbreads from Executive Restaurant Chef Anthony Van Camp.
“The Stadium Club is a creative, playful and forward-thinking take on the ever-popular sports bar,” said Van Camp. “The ‘heart’ of the kitchen is at our wood-fired grill, and pizza oven. The menu will highlight classic fare with a sophisticated touch and a focus on local and seasonal ingredients all while remaining true to our Texas roots.”
The Dallas Cowboys followed in the footsteps of the San Francisco 49ers. At Levi’s Stadium, local celebrity chef Michael Mina has an open year-round restaurant, Bourbon Steak & Pub, inside Levi’s Stadium.
"The 49ers had success with it and we think we can do the same,” Jones said. “It’s a great amenity on game day and for stadium tours and special events on non-game days. We used to have the old Texas Stadium club in the end zone (in Irving) but we’ve never really had a sit-down place (at AT&T Stadium)."
The Green Bay Packers also have a year-round restaurant, 1919 Kitchen & Tap (originally called Curly’s Pub when it opened in 2003).
