We met our family here; we've been here many times, and always loved it. The chicken fried steak is the best. The fried fish is amazing. The beer and margaritas are cold. On the weekends they usually have an acoustic guitar player and singer outside, and you can listen while you wait to be seated. The Gristmill is located in... More

I had dinner here last night with my brother, cousin & boyfriend after a day of travel...on a long 2,000+ mile road trip....ugh! This by far, is the best restaurant & service along the way. What a beautiful Texas hill country drive on the way to the restaurant! Take the River road for the scenery! A vulture actually glided in... More

We came with a big party (15 people). They did a very good job about getting our food on time. Good food and loved the atmosphere! However, it seemed that there wasn't any a/c in the restaurant so it was hot and humid.

CFS was ok. The ORs were too big and tough. We'll pass next time. It was a lunch on Monday. Very busy.

Food is quite good. Service is very good. I haven't been disappointed over numerous visits. Friends and business associated have all been taken there. Views are very good. Can get crowded, especially during NB's tourist seasons!

Our waiter brought us the menu and we settled on an appetizer of the large portion of onion rings. He advised that the small size would be sufficient and boy did he save us money.

Place was very busy but it did not take an abnormal amount of time to be served our meals. Service is some of the best I've had. And food is moderately priced, and the helping are more than most can eat at one time.
