“Great food and nice staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

We actually ate there twice. Dinner was wonderful and they were able to make substitutions without a problem. I had a burger for lunch. It was a bit over cooked. Fries were tasty.

They have indoor and outdoor eating area. I would have liked to eat outside and enjoy the river view but they still allow smoking outside. Too bad. We did have a nice window seat inside to see the river but not the same as sitting and enjoying the fresh air. Nearby smoking negates that unfortunately. The dinner was great and the waitstaff was fabulous!

“Great spicy chicken enchiladas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Went to the Gruene River Grill with a group of ladies for our monthly lunch. I like spicy food and the chicken enchiladas hit the spot! If you are not into spicy food don't order these. The restaurant sits back from the street on the river. Indoor and outdoor seating available. When you are done eating take the time to enjoy the small town of Gruene. Fun little gift shops and a wine tasting shop.

“Almost empty”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

We went to eat here on a Thursday evening. Should have know when just 3 tables had customers that this was not the place to be.
My wife and a friend had the halibut and it was just awful. I mean bad!. We were guests of our friend and he just wanted us to let it go.
The service was not good and obviously a new server.
The only redeeming factor was the deep fried fresh spinach leaves. I don't know how they do it but they were great.
At the high prices they charge it should have been better!

“Best restaurant in New Braunfels.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

This is a large and quaint restaurant overlooking the Guadalupe River in Gruene. Excellent service, large and reasonable menu and wine list. Several fireplaces and large built in bookshelves with interesting old books. Our first visit there and we like it much better than the other large restaurant nearby where we usually eat. Offstreet free parking, also.
