The wine was not marked up, so we chose a Bottle of Silver Oak cab for $80. Maybe that's why the chicken fried steak and steak sandwich were so good. Jalapeños deep fried were our only so-so choice. Fried potatoes and onion rings legendary, and lived up to the legend. Killer views, great for honeymooners or honeymooners with honeymoon aftermath.... More

I went for a daddy daughter date with my 15 year old, and have been here several times before. The food, ambiance and service has always been good. They also offer a gluten free diet which I am currently on and appreciate. I had Ribs which were a special item that evening and not normally on the menu, and I... More

This place is HUGE, and as the only big restaurant in Gruene, its crowded as well. Enjoy the huge tree covered patio, and expect a 20-30 minute wait on the weekends. Comfort food and iced tea!

Gristmill is all about atmosphere. From the front entrance, and the walk through the restaurant and the river views, decor, and furniture. The menu is basic barbeque, very fitting for the setting, but otherwise nothing too exciting. However, the quality of food is excellent and the service was very good. The steak was cooked as I requested and the sides... More

If you are in the town of Gruene, then spend the time to visit the Gristmill. They have a varied menu and the prices are very good. We ordered a salad which served both of us and we ordered a large onion rings. Thank heavens we didn't order the Texas size. The large has 12 extremely super size rings and... More

No need for a lengthy review. Great food in a super cool, really unique environment. Indoors or outdoors this place is awesome!

enjoyed lunch on a beautiful day at the Grist Mill. Our waiter, Taylor, was delightful. He was witty and knowledgable. His recommendation of the pepper filet was spot on and the entire table was glad he influenced our decision. The squash and zucchini was also delicious (I am sure the butter it was cooked in had nothing to do with... More

The ribs were excellent as were the huge Onion Rings, are a must to order with the poppers, at the gristmill. We were sitting on the patio, outside, by the river which was lovely except for the large branches hanging down over the tables and the ants. If you are in the mood for a good drink, they serve excellent... More

This place is a hit or miss, average options in a great location. The food is not stellar but it is ok, burgers are normally good and the service is good. Pretty much always busy as again a really good location.
