Just what we needed after braving the parking lots of the historic site up the road...no chance of lunch there!

So glad we spotted the sign and turned in to try the Gruene Door. This was a top five meal of our three week trip through Texas....and we ate in many highly rated places.

The atmosphere is wonderful...so peaceful with great background music playing. Service was excellent and the food was wonderful. My cobb salad was perfect, the squash soup superb, and the flavored butter complimented the delicate bread.

Excellent job!

The Gruene Door is a quaint local joint near New Braunfels,
Texas and located in a small shopping area called The Gruene Lake Village. The area its self is quiet and cute with a few shops and bars to entertain.

The restaurant has a great atmosphere and is decorated with a comfortable mix of browns and deep reds. I really enjoyed just looking around the room. For a smallish, local dining option I was impressed with the amount of seating. I arrived for lunch and was promptly seated by a very polite staff member. Service was quick, kind and helpful.

I ordered the chicken salad sandwich and was pleased with the flavor but felt the croissant it came on was a little harder than it should have been. The sweet potato fries were delicious!

All-in-all, it was a pleasant dining experience.

It was a chilly night and the big fireplace was most welcoming. The decor was warm and simple. The food was great. The martini was exquisite! Bought a house just 300 ft from this place! Can't wait to be a regular! My favorite place in Gruene!

Food is always good. Servers are attentive. Nice atmosphere. Can be noisy if crowded. I love the salmon with flash fried spinach.
