My husband is in heaven--the buttermilk pancakes are just like his Swedish grandmother used to make! I am not a pancake girl myself but must admit that they are very good.

We hike with our pets. It was nice to stop for lunch and sit outside with our dogs and get something to eat afterwards. The food was great. No complaints here.

I was not blown away but I did enjoy my food, wanted to sit outside but each time flies an issue so part of the charm is to sit out and see the river. Food is average not great but interesting, the dessert was the best part. Have been there twice so probably won't go back, service not good, but... More

We were looking for a different place to have lunch near Boerne. We decided to stop at Little Gretel and found a very upscale and quiet restaurant. This was a weekday. We had Schnitzel and it was wonderful. It was not what I consider a traditional Bavarian Schnitzel but I really enjoyed the flavor. The service was excellent. Little Gretel... More

The atmosphere is very happy and hard working. The food is out standing and prepared and looks amazing. The hostess are very pretty and happy workers and are very helpful to the customers. All around is a spectacular atmosphere.

The food and service is great and the atmosphere is elegant. It feels like you are in Germany. The wait staff is very friendly and the hostess was very nice. If you are looking for a great German restaurant in Boerne I advise you to go here.

We read some good reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to take a Sunday drive and stop at Little Gretel Restaurant for brunch. We were seated very quickly but it became apparent early on that there were not enough staff on hand. Our server apologized on several occasions saying they were "slammed" that morning. The most annoying aspect of our visit... More

I went there for lunch during my lunch break with one other person and sat down at our table outside at 12:05. Our server didn't come to our table until 12:11 and didn't come back to take our order until 12:19 after we asked the hostess, who was also working as a busser, to please have our server come by...
