Awesome!!

Best food in Gruene! I had grilled shrimp brochette basted in garlic butter with a jalapeño glaze and it was wonderful. Came with 9 big shrimp. My husband had the biggest chicken fried steak I've ever seen. It was so tender when I went to break off a piece of crust the meat came with it. He never... read 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

This is a very nice restaurant situated on the bank of the Guadalupe River. We shared the shrimp wontons appetizer and a hamburger. We asked for it to be cooked medium rare but it was served medium to medium well. However, it was still very tasty and the fried shrimp wontons served with a cherry sauce were very good indeed....

Loved the food; had steaks and potato and salads; very large portions so we shared and just ordered an extra salad ; right next to the Gruene Hall if you're going there afterwards for a concert or to dance. Can sit on the river side and enjoy that beauty

We were so happy with the food. Everything was great. The service, food, venue...we will definitely be back. The only small thing were the restrooms. There were ladies coming out of the stall while we waited and the restroom is so small it became an awkward moment.

Out in the open and with view of the review! Although I came when tourist season was crazy this place for sure is a place to go for dusk date night.

I had been pumped by a friend's son to try the ribeye here. It is prepared with a balsamic glaze, and was tasty. The issue for me is that the steak was $23, and I probably had about $5 worth of actual meat (the rest was pure fat). My friend had also been told by her son about the meatloaf.... More

Went here with the wife for a date night. Had great service, food was spectacular. Been here several times and really enjoyed it. Not much of a kid friendly place though.

Wife and I ate dinner here. It is a very large restaurant, with both inside or outside patio seating. We opted for inside with view of Guadalupe River, as it was quite warm outside. I had country fried steak and wife had a chicken dish, both cooked the southern way, and quite good. Served with garlic mashed potatoes and fresh,... More
