Went here for lunch on a Tuesday. We thought the restaurant was very pretty. Loved the big tall door entrance and large waiting area with big book library. Restaurant is spacious with air conditioning. I mention the air conditioning because the more popular restaurant Gristmill nearby does not. We had high hopes for our lunch once seated. Felt service was... More

Sat on the patio and had great lunch celebrating my husbands birthday overlooking the river. Interesting chicken dish and mash potatoes with beans. Great and friendly service.

New Braunfels is one of my favorite places to get away. We love it so much that we just bought a condo so that we could come visit frequently. I'd tried this place before on one of my solo trips and loved it so much I had to bring my husband and son back. They loved it! My entrée was... More

Meet friends here that were visiting form out of town. The service was quick (got there before 5pm) The food was outstanding. Lovely view over the river. By the time we left it had filled up a lot. Off the beaten path but well worth going to if in the area!

We went in for dinner and shared a steak, which was good. But then we decided to order desert and had the Double Chocolate Cake and Ice Cream (Vanilla Bean) and was so good we had to go back the second night of our stay for another.

For those wanting to dine in Gruene, there appears to be a wait time no matter where you are going however we found the wait at Gruene River Grill to be half the time of The Gristmill (we may have just gotten lucky I suppose). The food was great, I had the Chicken Enchiladas...but secretly wished I had ordered the... More

My friends and I loved the salmon with basmati rice and steamed veggies. The squash and zuccini were cooked perfectly-not squishy or barely cooked. I actually ate all my veggies this time :) The salmon had a wonderful flavor and I highly recommend it. The waitress was polite and she loved her job. She didn't say it, we just knew... More

This was our first visit here and will definitely not be our last. Everything we ordered was unbelievable. Shrimp wonton appetizers, glazed pork chop and salmon piccata. One of, if not the best pork dishes I've ever eaten. Staff is polite, quick and knowledgeable. This is a place where I'd make a special overnight trip from Houston just to eat... More

We really enjoy our meals at this restaurant. Happy Hour is also fun. They have half price appetizers and specials on the drinks. There is a really pretty view of the river and in the winter, the fireplace is really nice.

We ate here for the first time and it was excellent! Ordered the queso chicken and chicken guadalupe...both were excellent! Everyone at our table raved about the food! We will definitely eat here again.
