A Bit Out of the Way

When you find it, it is a very good steak house. I probably won't return simply because it is a bit out of the way. But the rib-eye, the old standby, was prepared correctly and had a great flavor. The sides were very nice as well. It is a locals place and the Rotary was meeting in the next room.... read more

If you want great food and fantastic service The Gruene Door will be at the top of your list for dining! There is a wide variety of selections on the menu-fish, chicken, steak, duck. Chef Collin Campion has put together great flavors that compliment every dish. He is great about making sure special requests due to dietary restrictions are taken... More

Lovely restaurant, with an inviting and cozy atmosphere. Outstanding food from an extensive menu of delicious entrees, salads, side dishes, and desserts. Locally sourced and chef inspired, all prepared fresh daily. Open for... More

we were spending Valentine weekend in Gruene and wanted a good meal. I honestly mainly picked this place because it was the only place that would take reservations. No way were we intending to stand in line at a first come, first serve place on one of the busiest dining nights of the year! We were not disappointed. The place... More

The limited menu food was good, though not as described. The blackened Mahi was fine, but the "lump" crab was really shredded and barely visible on the plate. The avocado was also miniscule and more like guacamole. I first thought it was wasabi. Service was lacking. Our pepper grinder was empty and we had to flag someone down to get... More

This is a great restaurant for a special night out. The food is outstanding and the ambiance is spectacular. There is no rush from the waiters to finish your meal quickly and leave. I would recommend the soups and gnocchi! However, one of my favorite aspects of this restaurant is the menu is seasonal!

Whenever we travel, we try to find local cuisine as opposed to chain restaurants. The Gruene Door hit the mark! We started with an appetizer of deconstructed tuna nachos. The Ahi tuna was seared perfectly and sliced thin. It was served with marinated jalapeños and wonton chips. For our entree, we both had the grilled salmon with a Parmesan polenta... More

Gruene has outgrown it's old buildings neighborhood and expanded to a new, upscale restaurant and bar area including The Gruene Door. They did a good job of serving our group of about 20 last Saturday night following our bike ride of the Tour de Gruene. I think all in our group felt the food and service were great.

We love going to this restaurant and I often recommend it to friends. The staff is always top notch and the food as well. We went this Sunday for brunch and it was wonderful, as usual. I had a version of eggs Benedict which included a perfectly cooked filet and my wife had a great little smoked turkey sandwich with... More
