We have always dined at the Gristmill but a friend suggested we visit this place. This place as absolutely beautiful inside, the service was great on such a busy night, and the food was one of the best meals I've ever had. We will visit this place over Gristmill every time we return to Gruene!

We literally stumbled upon this place, the only reason we stopped was because of all the cars outside, it was jam packed, they said it would be a 40 minute wait but when we opted for outside it was 5 minutes after that, Our waiter Robbie was terrific, great personality, and very attentive, considering this place is in one of...

My husband and I have been to Gruene many times but this was our first visit to the Gruene River Grill. We had shrimp wontons that were terrific, jalapeno corn chowder, and greek salad. The atmosphere was great. You could talk without a lot of noise. The service was excellent. The corn chowder was worth a visit just to have... More

Had visitors from Florida, so we went to Gruene River Grill. Even though there were a lot of people waiting, I had two elderly, and they seated us quickly and took very special care of us. We all ordered something different, but everything was delicious and well presented. My Mom, who is fairly picky and eats like a bird, ate... More

Scenic view overlooking the Guadelupe River in old town Gruene (pronounced Green). Large, busy, touristy restaurant with a nice menu but only average food. Excellent service, nice bar.

We were visiting in San Antonio and met up with some good friends to eat dinner at the Gruene River Grill (only about a 30 minute drive). The atmosphere is wonderful, reminiscent of an old barn, done very classy, and offers great atmosphere on the Guadalupe River. We all ordered a different dish - I ordered the Jalapeno Glazed Shrimp,... More

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.
