Description: Situated on a bluff overlooking the Guadalupe River, this spectacular restaurant nestled under the shade of towering oak trees has been the perfect getaway for a unique casual dining experience for thirty years. Located in the historic district of Gruene just beneath the famous Gruene water tower, we opened in 1977, serving steaks and hamburgers from a tiny kitchen in the corner of the building. Our menu still features thick steaks and large hamburgers, but the restaurant also serves up popular South Texas fare like chicken fried steak, fried catfish, grilled chicken, enormous sandwiches, fresh fish and special dishes like tomatillo chicken and bronzed catfish. Fudge pie, the enormous strawberry shortcake and our signature Jack Daniel's Pecan Pie are famous desserts. A full bar with a good wine list and fresh squeezed lime margaritas are also big hits.

I have eaten here several times and I always love coming here. If the weather is accommodating, outside overlooking the Guadalupe River is the best! I love the setting and the "old" mill feel of this place - the outdoor seating area is amazing! The food is wonderful and the salads are the best! Our service was very good and they took very good care of us (plus took pictures for a group photo for us). I will always continue to come back here for lunch/dinner when in the neighborhood!

Tourists love this place and its proximity Gruene Hall. It has no A/C. Very crowded in the summer, long lines and wait, food is ok, and the setting is the big draw. Don't go expecting great food....but is fun for families who want outdoors and the Gruene experience.

We have taken friends and family there, they were charmed and impressed. Great atmosphere. We sat outside and had a view of the river. Very large trees and you feel like you are nestled into the canopy. Top notch food and service too.

Highly recommend - great views overlooking river. Food is top-notch, especially recommend the ribs. Salads are big and delicious too. Also known for their great burgers and onion rings. Located right next to Gruene Hall, which features well-known entertainers nightly.

One of my favorites! Peppered filet, green beans, sangria, and spinach dip. Enough said. Sunset on the banks of the Guadalupe River.
