Ordered chicken fried steak dinner at this restaurant. Steak was terrible - laced with strings of fat and ligament (I guess?!). I could not even cut it with the knife provided much less chew it. Told the waitress steak was bad - she took my plate away and never came back! Finally got our ticket and paid full price for... More

This is our family "go to" restaurant. We have never been disappointed by anything on the menu, though by far, our favorite entree is the filet gorgonzola. The key lime pie and strawberry shortcake are excellent choices for dessert.

We had the spinach and artichoke appetizer. As usual it was good. I had the chicken fajita salad and it was very good. My wife had a burger and it was very good. The service was great. We have dined here before and will again.

We waited 45 minutes on a Saturday night but the staff was quite friendly and their quote on time straight on. We arrived at 5:50 and it was before the larger rush. The portions were large so, if you are a smaller eater, you might want to share with someone or avoid the appetizers. We had a group of 7... More

The food was good the several times I've eaten there. The customer service and bartender, eh, not so much! Ordered a Rob Roy before dinner. A Manhattan was served. Asked the server to please replace with the correct order. She brought back another Manhattan. I asked her to let the barkeep know that a Rob Roy was a Manhattan with... More

This is another local favorite in Gruene! I'll stop here with friends for lunch or unexpected guests on a weekend in the evening.

My SO and I were visiting the area for the holiday weekend and had an early dinner here. He got the chicken enchiladas and could not stop raving about the rice and been mixture it was served with as a side. I had the country friend steak which was tasty as well. My only complaint would be that the breading... More

Gruene River Grill has great food and a wonderful atmosphere. It's located a stones throw from the gristmill, a far more popular restaurant in Gruene, but take it from a local, Gruene River Grill beats gristmill everytime. Give it a try next time you're visiting

Large dining area both inside and outside tables, very good service and a menu that spans many appetites. I had country fried steak (potatoes and gravy, of course) and my wife had fried shrimp, both very good. Prices very reasonable considering that you are in a very touristy area across from Greune Hall.

Casual restaurant located just a 2 minute walk from the iconic Gruene water tower. We did not see any busy times to avoid, however I am sure it is packed with a wait around noon on Sundays. We went on a Saturday around 2pm and there was no wait to be seated. Drinks and food arrived shortly after ordering and... More
