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.

This place is so cool. We wnt with the family and all of our food was great. Huge sizes and good service. If you can get a table out side that overlooks the river. We will go back again and again.

Decor and atmosphere work well. Food was generally good or a step better. Onion ring appetizer is huge: large thick rings perfectly battered and seasoned. Get the small unless that's all you want to eat. The primo sauce with horseradish was tasty. Salad was enormous, fresh and well stocked with croutons. They put poco de gallo on their Caesar normally.... More

The food quality and service are both very inconsistent. Living nearby, we have had the opportunity to visit this restaurant on multiple occasions, both weekends and weekdays. Our experience here has been very hit or miss - when the food and service are good, they are very good and when they are not, they are really bad, Its a very... More

I have been visiting the Gristmill since I first started visiting New Braunfels. Every time we visit we have to go to this restaurant. The atmosphere is perfect, and I would suggest asking for a table outside so you can see the Guadalupe River. At night, everything is lit up and makes a romantic atmosphere for a date night.

We really enjoyed our dinner at the Gristmill. We had a seat right along the river and the food was great. Appetizers are huge and portions are generous. Prices were not bad either. We hope to return the next time we are in the area!
