“Excellent Lunch”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

We recently stopped for lunch with a good friend who lives in New Braunfels. What a nice surprise!
We started with the bruschetta appetizer that was so delicious nothing was left on the plate. I had the salmon and it quite possibly is the best I've ever had. My husband had the steak salad and loved it. I don't remember what our friend had - possibly a pasta - we all had clean plates when it was over. Nice to be able to have glasses of wine, from a good wine list, with our lunch. Overall, it was such a pleasing experience and reasonably priced. Highly recommend a stop here if you are in Gruene/New Braunfels.

“Worth a Visit!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Amazing food, fast service, lively atmosphere. Try the warm goat cheese bruchetta, any of their salads, bacon-wrapped pork loin, and stuffed flounder. This place has it all. Can't wait to travel back to Gruene, just to visit The Gruene Door!
