Restaurants on the river?

Are there any places for casual eating (Burgers, Tex Mex, B-B-Que) that have outdoor areas by the river...not far from the water park?

There are several in Gruene, a 5 minute drive. Grist Mill is our favorite. Not sure of any walkable from Schlitterbahn.

I was under the impression that Grist Mill is more upscale, serving things like steak and seafood. Am I wrong?

Okay, I just looked up Grist Mill again and see I was way off. Now, If I could find a good Tex Mex and Bar-B-Que on the water I'd be set!

Don't know of any BBQ joints on the river. Best BBQ is Cooper's or Rudy's, both Texas landmarks. Between Schlitterbahn and Gruene.

For good burgers check out :

TJ Burger's on Loop 337 Ramp

830-620-5331

There are a lot of restaurants in the nearby historic Gruene district. You can eat and then walk down to the river.

From Schlitterbahn you can walk to :

Subway

Pat's Place (burgers, mexican food, salads, sandwiches, chicken fried steak,)

Union Street Station: ussnb.com/…_Texas.html

It isn't on the river, but we love Mamacita's off of 35 for great Mexican food.

We love the Grist Mill too. Sometimes they have live music, and they have yummy homemade wine coolers. The little town of Gruene is worth checking out if you have time.
