My good friend & I came here w/o a reservation & only had to wait 10 minutes to be seated. She wanted to share with me one of her favorite places to eat and have tea. Loved the decor & feel for the place. I loved the food, muffins & tea. I'd recommend it especially to anyone from the U.K.... More

My sisters and I ordered the salad sampler and it was wonderful! We enjoyed the pasta, green salad and a chicken salad. All tasted fresh and delicious!!! Also, fresh fruit and a pumpkin muffin. Yum. We were able to sit outside on the patio and enjoy the view. Very peaceful by the river. Our hostess, Patty, was a delight! She... More

Went here on a Friday afternoon for drinks (Sangria is great). Went back for lunch on Saturday. The quiche is awesome. The muffins are exceptional and the apricot butter is oh, so yummy. Great place to visit with girlfriends before you head out to Gruene to do some shopping! If you are in the area - you should definitely give... More

Thank you all for these reviews! We never would have thought to visit this little place otherwise. We were really excited to find such a cute restaurant that clearly takes pride in its food. We had the duck wrap and the quiche du jour. Both were good and we enjoyed sitting out on the patio for our meal. Very good... More

This was my second time at this Tea Room. The first time I sat inside; this time I sat outside as the inside was full - it is a small place with maybe 6 tables or so. Outside was wonderful; the server was very helpful. The sangrias were to die for - very good and refreshing. I had 1/2 a... More

We were visiting from Arizona and the three of us ladies were in San Antonio for a Army reunion of our husbands. Well we left downtown to drive to this place for a ladies lunch and we had a wonderful time. The plum tea was fantastic! Two of us enjoyed the salad sampler lunch and that was such a delight!...

Even though the restaurant was not crowded (we were the only ones in there @ 7:00 p.m. on a Saturday night!) we felt rushed by the server; food was just not well prepared. Sauce on the shrimp & pasta dish seemed like it was poured out of a can of condensed soup. Pork tenderloin was overcooked and tough.

I've never written a review online for anything - I typically don't dislike anything that much to go public and I feel like the places I love already have pretty positive reviews. Last night my husband and I went to the River House Tea Room as it was recommended by our B&B. we called to make reservation for an early... More

Great tea room, wonderful homemade Sangria, food was just as you would expect. Started off with the muffins variety basket...the butter cream cheese is perfect. We had the chef's turkey croissant & seasoned tortilla chips with fruit, the top round sandwich with chicken & dumplings and side fruit. Great place for tea room lunch and staff is friendly. Place stays... More
