Fun place to eat, view of the river, service is very good for kids that have to go up and down 4-5 levels - great attitudes, go there every time we are in Gruene.

First, I will note that I wish they would take reservations, but that said, they gave me a realistic time to arrive in advance to get a table for 12 and it worked out wonderfully. The service was spectacular, the food excellent and no confusion on the bill. (I paid for everything but the alcohol) The Balsamic Rib eye and... More

Overall food was very good and portions were huge--couldn't even come close to eating it all. The management and staff need to do a better job of cleaning tho'. Table cloth edges were grimy and there were spider webs hanging all over outside, the one above our table had a huge nasty looking bug in it...

Great location with river views... inside and outside seating. My wife and I have been here a dozen times and have never had a bad experience. The food is very good with a lot of variety offered. On our last visit we had the Wedge salad, the Wonton Shrimp and the Gorgonzola Burger... all prepared to perfection. Plenty of bacon... More

we had lunch. I had the tortilla soup which was very good. My husband had lemon chicken. The interesting part was the Spicy Cucumber Martini. Awesome Martini. It had a real kick to it but great. Neat location and rustic atmosphere.

This is Texas. Everywhere else in America you hear "baseball and apple pie". In Texas, it's "Chicken fried steak and pecan pie". The chicken fried steak at the Gruene River Grill is top notch...and it's 2 good meals' worth. The chicken tortilla soup is another home run. And the Grilled chicken biccatta (spelling?) with white wine cream sauce was terrific... More

Although we arrived after dark and could not enjoy the scenery by the river, we enjoyed the ambiance of outdoor dining. The food was excellent. The server was friendly and helpful.

Had been there a few years ago with my wife and it was simply great! Nice place too. Dragged 7 friends to it last week and everybody enjoyed it. Great shrimps, tender steaks fast and friendly service. Will return for sure.
