My wife and I ate here the food was very good, but a bit pricey. The environment was very nice overlooking the river. The service was great.

We ordered frozen margaritas - tasted like pure lime juice...had to send back. Calamari was very good - But, the marinara dipping sauce was 'sweet?' - it just didn't go together. Chicken with Capers/artichokes was very average. The green beans that came with - were virtually raw (and I love al-dente veggies) + it had a very-hot(pepper) sauce on them... More

Went to grab a quick lunch at the Gruene River Grill and were impressed by the decor and interior. The menu generally looked good and table service was reasonable. Unfortunately, my dining companion received a long hair in their food, which was a cause for concern in the area of kitchen execution. Additionally, the service fell down when, upon reporting...

We enjoyed our dinner and our view of the river. We went on a busy Friday evening but did not have a long wait for our table. Portions were large and tasty.

My wife and I had our wedding reception here in 2014. We rented out the downstairs area and everything went extremely smooth. We had zero issues. The staff was very attentive, helpful, and had everything set up for us when we arrived. The downstairs has a patio that you can go out on and have a few drinks while looking... More

Living in the area, this is our "go to" restaurant - the first place we take out of town guests. They have never disappointed us yet!

It's been several years since I was in Gruene and dined in the Gruene River Grill. The food and service is still the best and you can't beat sitting outside overlooking the river while you enjoy your meal. The pan seared red fish is my favorite! Dillon provided great service.

Sirloin and southwestern style (spicy) Meatloaf are both outstanding dishes. Excellent service, terrific location overlooking the river, and A+ desserts.

We had a late lunch and enjoyed our meal. I found the atmosphere to be warm and welcoming. I had a burger with queso sauce which proved to be a bit of cheese overload. My companion had a smoked pork tenderloin with mashed potatoes and green beans. The pork was very tasty. All said, I would recommend for lunch. We... More
