This is a great place down the river a bit from the famous parts of Gruene -- which by the way is a lovely tourist spot and must see stop when exploring the Texas Hill Country. If you walk down from the Dance Hall and Past the Gruene Mansion, you can head towards the river and you will see this big building with blue lighting on the river bank.

They are reasonably priced for the area -- I got away for $70 for dinner for two and wine. We had crab cakes, a baslamic reduction marinated rib eye stake, a skewer of bacon wrapped shrimp and an oriental salad which was cabbage based.

Comfortable. Good Service. Menu available on line at:

Breat atmosphere with a view of the guadalupe river. Great food with very large portions. Would suggest sharing meal for kids. Excellent chips and queso. Went during the day. I believe it would be awesome at night. I saw lights on the trees. Probably romantic in the evenings. Next to large antique shop which was fun to visit.

Went here after being at Schlitterbahn all day, it was a great respite for us. Beautiful old building and good food. We had the lemon chicken and the chicken fried steak, both selections were great! Will be back.

Chose this establishment b/c of the view and it had above average reviews online. While we got a decent table, that was the last thing decent of the night. It took our sever 8 minutes to bring us two bottle beers at 830 at night when the place was dead. It took another 5 to get waters. The few people outside had kids who were running around everywhere and stood about 1-2 feet from our table climing the tables and railing, the two tables around us were annoyed as we were. Nothing was done. My wife ordered chicken, took one bite and decided to give it to our dog back at the hotel. It was chewy and dry. I ordered a burger medium....it came out completely charred. We would have usually sent the food back but it took about 30 minutes to get these simple orders with few patrons in the establishment, by the time we got our food we had enough and we were ready to leave. Oh well, at least the dog had a decent meal.... I would recommend trying something else in the area.
