I have been to The Greune Door for lunch and dinner. Food is always great and service attentive without being overbearing. Everyone on staff is very accommodating! Never disappointed!

We wound up here by chance and were we ever happy that we found this gem. We started with a prosciutto flat bread that was heaven on a plate. The flat bread was perfect baked with a thin crust and al dente middle. The prosciutto was tender yet baked and the dish had a delicious, yet understated citrus note (... More

Delicious, well-prepared food in a strip mall just outside Gruene. The decor reminded me of a golf club and the building it is in is modern but mundane. The food, however, was very good. Sauces were not too much and the menu seemed to focus on fresh and in-season fare. Service was good but it was not fine-dining- more upscale... More

There were 10 women in our group for Sunday brunch, and they did an amazing job. The service was outstanding - the staff managed to keep our many requests and changes straight and even gave us separate checks. The ambiance is great - not too noisy - even with other larger groups in the restaurant. Can't wait to go back!!!

Very nice little restaurant in Gruene Lake Village. We really enjoyed the Greek flatbread and the pulled pork tacos.

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 all had sandwiches -- 3 Turkey and Swiss, and a Reuben. The sandwiches come w/ a choice... More

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.
