Amazing Place!

We loved this place, it over looks the river and the food is great. Customer Service is the best, Jason our waiter was absolutely great!! Try their steaks and hometown brewed beer.

Food very mediocre. Had to add catsup too the gorgonzola burger it was so flavorless. Waiter was on another planet. Blackberry cobbler saved the meal. Setting is very nice. I am hoping we just picked the wrong thing on the menu. Will give it one more try.

This is one of my favorite places to take my wife on a casual dye night. The restaurant has a nice quiet atmosphere without being snobbish. Each dish is fantastically prepared, we've honestly have never been disappointed.

A local recommended not only the restaurant but dishes to try also. Our food turned out delicious the variety of drinks are amazing. The patio can get hot during summer so you may want to sit inside. One downside is our waiter was very unpleasant. We noticed many of the other servers and they were at the top of their... More

We had a dinner meeting in the wine tasting room. It was nice, intimate and much quieter then the rest of the restaurant. We ordered off the menu and was pretty satisfied with everything we had.... Especially good items: Wonton Shrimp Appetizer; Crawfish & Corn Chowder; Ribeye Balsamic Steak; Banana Pudding NOTE: The banana pudding was literally the BEST I... More

We had to wait an hour but the atmosphere was worth it and the food and drinks were excellent. Through view from the back deck was beautiful and relaxing. Servers were helpful and pleasant. It's a wonderful place to eat and relax.

Great food, great service, great atmosphere. That view though... Breathtaking view of the Guadalupe river from high above in the outdoor seating areas.

We got this recommendation from a cute little Cupcakery Shop in Gruene (new town), they said they had great steaks. Well, we were disappointed when we saw only two choices for steak, but my husband, Roy tried one and I tried the other. Well that being said, we weren't disappointed, everything was great, cooked exactly the way we wanted it... More

We went during the week and were seated right away. Sat outside over the river and had an excellent view. Connor was our server and he was spot on with his service. The food was excellent. My wife loved the shrimp wontons and I got the blackened peppered steak that was cooked and seasoned perfectly. I have ate at top... More
