Great place for food and enjoying the afternoon by the river! Their portions are generous. Don't pass on the sangrias.

We were on a 6 week road trip and like to hit Diner, Drive In and Drive restaurants and have always had good to great food. This is not a triple D restaurant but it was the best place we ate at. Started with a "small" order of rings, they are huge and the best ever. The baby backs were the special so I tried that, they were great and the biggest half rack I ever had. My wife ordered the steak salad, it was perfect with lots of great steak cooked perfectly. Also, heard praise from other tables about the chicken fried steak. If you are in the Texas Hill Country you will not want to miss this place. Also, very good prices.
We travel to New Braunfels several times a year to visit family. We always make a point to eat at the Gristmill. Even though Gruene is getting a bit touristy, the Gristmill has not become a tourist trap. The food quality is excellent. The service time is reasonable, and if the weather is good, even the long wait for a table can be a pleasure in their "cocktail" area. There's not a bad item on the menu, but better than half the time, I go for the ribs, and our table typically starts with an onion ring appetizer. The salad dressings are made in-house. The greens are fresh, so all the salads are a great option too. As long as they don't stray from the winning formula of hot, quality food and good service, we will be back.
This restaurant is one of a kind. From there really intresting chalk board control center ( ya gotta go to understand) to the great wait staff to the Excellent food, you will love this place. Nestled among the trees on the bank of the river make this a special place for one diner or a group. I think they seat like 700 people so the wait is never too long and always worth the wait if you end up having to. You'll love it !
Wonderful setting on the river- music and drinks outside while you wait for a table. Service was excellent! Husband had the rib eye- excellent! I had the chicken fried steak- which is their signature dish, very good!
