I've been dining here for a number of years and have enjoyed their baby back ribs because the meat usually falls off the bones. However, this past weekend four of us decided to celebrate our January birthdays at the grill. We split a rack of ribs and they were so dry and we couldn't even cut the meat from the... More

It was girls' night and we went here for drinks and dinner. It's a good bar - drinks were poured right and served quickly. You should try the fried artichoke appetizer- yum. My favorite entree is probably the pork loin, but my daughter loves this queso chicken plate. It's all good. In the daytime, there's a nice view from the... More

We had a great evening and dinner. The 'rattlers' before dinner with the shrimp wontons were great. We shared the lemon chicken with mashed potatoes and fresh green beans. Excellent meal, service and a great view.

I like this restaurant better than the well known Grist Mill. Good location. you can eat outside or inside right by the river. The food is excellent and the service was very good.

We walked over to the Gruene River Grill from our room at the Mansion Inn just to have a light lunch. After we each had a bowl of the Jalapeno Crawfish Chowder, we decided to go back for supper. We again had the Jalapeno Crawfish Chowder (this time as an appetizer). The service was excellent, the staff were very friendly... More

We met in Gruene for a multi-generational gathering and stumbled upon this restaurant. Our party of 16 all enjoyed our food (burgers, salads, steak & seafood) do much that we returned the next day for yet another meal. The atmosphere is so pleasant with pleasant wait staff, a roaring fire, a nice bar, and TV's place in non-obtrusive places. I... More

This was the best evening and meal. We sat by the windows and the view added to the meal. Everyone enjoyed the meals and live music. Definitely recommend!

Second time to visit. Ask for a table with river views, even pretty on winter days. Guys had Gorgonzola burgers/fries, I had the tortilla soup - a Texas favorite. Lots of variety on the menu. Generous servings! Service is fast and friendly. Nothing fancy here, just consistently good, homestyle eats in a laid-back, rustic, barn-like venue. Very kid-friendly.

Thank graciouslivinguk
