“OMG, is all that needs to be said”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

We were going to go to the Grist Mill, but a friend suggested we try this place. We were NOT disappointed!
I got the Gruene chicken enchiladas, they were amazing! My mother and son got the Country Fried steak, which was about as big as their head, they said it was great! My husband got the brochettes shrimp and my daughter got the chicken tenders. Everyone was very pleased with their food

“Food very tasty!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Very nice setting looking over a hillside. Food was delicious and server willing to be truthful about which dishes weren't so hot.

“Excellent!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Great food in a lovely setting. Everything in Gruene is within walking distance of the restaurant. I had the pulled pork tacos. Wow! Really tasty. My wife had the fish tacos and they were great. Look forward to returning soon.

“Love the ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

The food is just above average but the atomosphere and the view of the river make this a great place to eat. They have a large bar area, and open patio and the food tastes fresh and home made. Generally not as crowded as the Gristmill with the same view of the river.

“food is fine but the server tried to cheat us...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

am a local who has been coming here for several years. The food is good although a bit pricey for what you get. The ambiance is nice, the patio and some inside tables have a river view. Generally not as crowded as the Gristmill. Dinner prices are from about $10 to $20 a plate. Our last visit was a huge disappointment. We paid cash for the bill and the $$ returned was short several dollars and change. When we nicely called his attention to it he did bring us back the correct amount and implied we had not seen the missing six dollars. Given that we also did not see the 14 pennies he also returned with, you have to wonder. Did we have "stupid" tatooed on our foreheads? Contacted the management via their website email to let them know what had happened...two weeks now and no response. I doubt we will return again...
