The Gristmill can always be counted on for good food and good service. We have been eating here for 10-15 years..never disappointed. Prepare for a wait on the weekends and remember, it's Texas and it is HOT outside from May to September.

The Gristmill Restaurant has been one of my favorites for almost 30 years. Situated on the Guadalupe River in New Braunfels, Texas in the heart of the historic Gruene area. Great food, the best margaritas and a very friendly staff of mostly college students (so tip well please). It is located next door to the historic Gruene Hall where there... More

I have eaten here several times and I always love coming here. If the weather is accommodating, outside overlooking the Guadalupe River is the best! I love the setting and the "old" mill feel of this place - the outdoor seating area is amazing! The food is wonderful and the salads are the best! Our service was very good and... More

Tourists love this place and its proximity Gruene Hall. It has no A/C. Very crowded in the summer, long lines and wait, food is ok, and the setting is the big draw. Don't go expecting great food....but is fun for families who want outdoors and the Gruene experience.

We have taken friends and family there, they were charmed and impressed. Great atmosphere. We sat outside and had a view of the river. Very large trees and you feel like you are nestled into the canopy. Top notch food and service too.

Highly recommend - great views overlooking river. Food is top-notch, especially recommend the ribs. Salads are big and delicious too. Also known for their great burgers and onion rings. Located right next to Gruene Hall, which features well-known entertainers nightly.

One of my favorites! Peppered filet, green beans, sangria, and spinach dip. Enough said. Sunset on the banks of the Guadalupe River.

Great place to meet friends, enjoy a wonderful meal and enjoy Gruene. We met a group of friends for dinner. This is one of our go-to places to take out of town visitors. You just can't go wrong picking this place.

The food's pricey for the quality. It's an ok space for familes with children but not for a nice dinner when you want to hear the people you're with. The Gruene River Grill is better for that type of experience.
