I have been enjoying Gruene River Grill since the late 1990's. It is always good. My favorites are: Southwest Meat Loaf, Fried Shrimp, Fish Tacos, Chicken Fried Steak, Beef Short Ribs (a new dish for them - it is incredible), and the Crawfish and Corn Chowder.

The building is so attractive and set right by the Guadalupe River. Always a lovely view there. In the winter a big fireplace warms the large dining room. Menu is varied. Has favorites like hamburgers and meatloaf and steak but always with an interesting twist. Great salads. Tasty food all around. Only draw back is that the live music on... More

We ate here on our first night in Gruene. We ordered the Balsamic steak--wow!! It was so tender you could cut it with a fork. We enjoyed great appetizers (the guacamole was my favorite) and terrific margarita swirls. The waitstaff was very attentive and the view of the river was gorgeous. We will definitely be back on our next trip... More

This place was highly recommended to us by some friends and I'm happy we took their advice. The front wall of the building is covered by vines and the restaurant has a beautiful outdoor patio that faces the river. The food and service are also great so I recommend.

Having visited before, we were ready to return and have an excellent meal. Unfortunately, this time it was just OK. There was a long wait for a table and a long wait for our food after we ordered, and the food wasn't as good as we remembered once it arrived. The service was VERY slow on our last visit, but...

Great food, service and atmosphere! Loved it! The Rattler is one of the best Margaritas I've had - and I've had quite a few!

This was a treasure to come back to the GristMill after 20 years of being away from Texas. It was much larger than before but the food was superb. My family had the chicken fried steak while I had the Chicken Tortilla Soup and the Squash veggie mix. I was completely full and satisfied just with the soup. I had... More

It is hard to visit Gruene, a village in the city of New Braunfels, without dining at the Gristmill. The Gristmill has a place in the New Braunfels hall of fame and I would never tell you to miss out on the experience of dining on the Guadalupe River at a classic restaurant. However, if you are into a more... More
