Unique dance hall and listening to music here brings back the ambiance of the place. So many musicians have been performing here. Gruene is a lovely town and the river bringing life.

We stopped in after dinner at The Gristmill and were glad we did! The place has lots of character and a great atmosphere. The history behind it was great as well. There was a nice crowd and a great band that played a mix of originals and country covers. We enjoyed the cold beers, watching the people dance and the... More

My husband was brought to tears to be standing in a location with so much history. We were there on a Thursday night that had free music that was very good and the place was swarming. Great party that was still family OK. I am glad we don't live closer tho, I would NEVER see my husband. He would be... More

Michael and I stopped in Gruene Hall after dinner at Gristmill. There was a Texas country band playing down home Texas music and people dancing and just enjoying themselves. It was very nice to sit and just listen, watch, and enjoy the atmosphere. There are screened in windows that stay open to let the breeze dance through and there is... More

Do yourself a favor and go visit Gruene Hall...I've been well over 25 times and it's still hands down one of my favorite spots to visit when we're working our way through the hill country...the history of the place is unreal, and the beer is always cold

I love the historical significance of the little Texas dance hall. I also love that it still hosts dances on a regular basis. I hear that on weekends it fills up with UT students and rednecks for a cranking good time. I was there when it was empty. You could almost feel the excitement, even though the town was dead... More

The history of the hall is amazing. I love seeing the pictures and knowing that many of the greatest musicians got their start here. A Friday with the family, Saturday night with friends or even a Sunday brunch! They have something for everyone.

Crazy great music, dancing, fun. If you go to the Texas Hill Country, you must come here. No gluten free beer for the celiac nation, that was the only bummer.
