Pleasantly surprised great food. Slow service.

Casual restaurant. Food was not your typical grill food. Homemade. Red mashed potatoes were devine. We all enjoyed the food and we are hard to please. Service slow and almost non existent. Would come again for the home cooked food.

Our first visit here. Great quality food. Very busy = popular. About 45 min wait for table. Well worth the wait. Wide selection on menu. We thought prices were very good.

Great service from the far too good looking staff and great food, which was plentiful, hot, tasty and very reasonably priced. Gutted we didn't have time to return!

This restaurant is completely covered by ivy and it doesn't look very big from the outside. When you open the door, you will walk down a long hallway to the hostess stand. There is plenty of seating both inside & outside. It is on the river. I had a filet cooked to perfection. It was accompanied by fresh French cut... More

If you are visiting the quaint German village of Gruene, just outside of New Braunfels, you might take in a meal and a drink at the Gruene River Grill. We ate dinner here as a family. Here's the scoop on this Gruene gem. Ambience: A+ The first thing you notice about the place is that it is BIG. However, big... More

Took my mom here for lunch, the restaurant is easy to find and situated in a beautiful area of Gruene. The porch and back area of the restaurant are overlooking the Guadalupe river, with plenty of big windows to enjoy the view. We ordered the queso for an appetizer and I had the Guadalupe chicken for lunch, the food was... More

The food was average. Service was fine but I don't think they had a chef in the kitchen, it was like my dinner was prepared by my best friend. It lacked taste, and the veggies were served warm and not hot. Sorry next time in Gruene, we will try another restaurant
