A Pampered Dining Experience in a Small Town Destination

This is a repeat lunch destination when I visit Gruene -- and for good reason! The place provides a more upscale menu (and atmosphere) to the usual "roadhouse" fare found at so many of the local restaurants, while keeping the pricing comparable.

We enjoyed a lovely brunch here for Mothers' Day. The menu featured selections from their breakfast and lunch menu. Everyone enjoyed their food, but the flash-fried spinach was nothing short of amazing...crisp, tasty,and very much a surprise. Excellent! We were seated alone in a secluded area of the patio, which was perfect since we had 2 children in our party... More

We booked their private room for our rehearsal dinner. The restaurant has an amazing atmosphere, attentive staff, and most importantly: mouth-watering & delicious food. We were so happy to have this as the introduction to our wedding weekend. :)

While there are bigger and more popular restaurants in Gruene, do not overlook this nice gem of a restaurant. It is a nicely decorated, well serviced place with wonderful food. If you are looking for a more quiet, casual but classy place to eat after spending time in Gruene, this is your place.

Take your cholesterol meds before dining here. Everything was drenched with butter except the bread which was non-existent. Waiter always seemed distracted. No personality. Food was so rich, could only eat half. What a waste. Dining room is noisy.

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.... 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.

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
