“Almost empty”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

We went to eat here on a Thursday evening. Should have know when just 3 tables had customers that this was not the place to be.
My wife and a friend had the halibut and it was just awful. I mean bad!. We were guests of our friend and he just wanted us to let it go.
The service was not good and obviously a new server.
The only redeeming factor was the deep fried fresh spinach leaves. I don't know how they do it but they were great.
At the high prices they charge it should have been better!

“Best restaurant in New Braunfels.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

This is a large and quaint restaurant overlooking the Guadalupe River in Gruene. Excellent service, large and reasonable menu and wine list. Several fireplaces and large built in bookshelves with interesting old books. Our first visit there and we like it much better than the other large restaurant nearby where we usually eat. Offstreet free parking, also.

“Atmosphere and Taste”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

Probably much better in the warmer months with the outside atmosphere and view, but it was amazing food and atmosphere when we visited as well. I would love to come back for short and t-shirt weather. Right down the road from Gruene Hall and overlooking the river.

“Very busy, but very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

Food was really good. Atmosphere was great, sit outside if the weather is nice. Service was a little slow but the place was packed.
