Great winter Restaurant – LOVE the great room with the fireplace. The food is excellant as well as the price. We love taking out of town guests to this place. Great job
What a disappointment! – Service was good!.The food was poor quality. Chicken
Marsala-sweet??? Mushrooms all 3 slices were raw.Grand- son was given childrens menu mac and cheese-must have come from HEB brand Kraft Mac and cheese for $5!!! Had to ask for bread.Drinks were refreshed frequently without asking.We were celebrating
a special occasion for nephew(graduation from Police
Academy). Very disappointed.
Great Wine Room – I live in the area and needed a place to take my clients for a meeting. The wine room fits around 20 people and is really beautiful. The managers were really nice and helped me out a lot when it came to preparing for the meeting. They have a projection screen that you can rent instead of me having to bring my own. The food is always good here and I could choose a menu for the meeting. I got a choice of three dishes and it comes with a salad and dessert. I'm thinking about booking a Christmas party for my company.
My favorite foods: Shrimp Wontons, Pork Quesidillas, Balsamic Ribeye, Chicken Guadalupe, Salmon Picatta, Shrimp Brouchette Salad, Jalapeno Crawfish Chowder
Good "Date Night" restaurant – One Friday evening recently, my husband and I were going to a show at Gruene Hall and decided to have dinner nearby beforehand. We were resigned to the idea that our only choice within walking distance was the Gristmill Restaurant (usually have to wait to be seated & the food is okay). As we were walking through Gruene we saw the sign for Gruene River Grill. I had seen several favorable reviews so we thought we'd try it. We were very pleased with the fine food, excellent service (attentive & prompt) & atmosphere. The tortilla soup was spicy & yummy (we were sorry we had only ordered a cup). Our main courses were very good as well...he had the Smoked Pork Tenderloin (very tender and juicy) and I had the Lemon Chicken (just the right portion and very flavorful); the side vegetables were not cooked to mush but al dente. We were also impressed with the presentation of entrees ordered by another table that we decided we are going to go back to order the Shrimp Brochettes ourselves. I don't think we'll be disappointed. This is a really good "date night" restaurant with good food & service!
Better food than Gristmill – My husband and I ate dinner here while visiting for a weekend, and decided to try both the Gristmill and Gruene River Grill while there to settle the Citysearch debate for ourselves. While the Gristmill had a great view and good service, the food was not spectacular. We thought the Gruene River Grill had better food, equally good service, and good ambience (although not overlooking the river). We sat at a table near enough to the fireplace to be warm, but not too hot. The food is slightly more upscale than the Gristmill, and better prepared.
Great menu selections. Delicious pasta and salads! – My favorite place to eat pasta for miles! My favorite is a spicy pasta dish and their salads are soooo fresh!
Nice relaxed atmosphere.
Excellent food and service - IMHO better than Grist Mill – Better food selection and quality of food than the Grist Mill, up the street.
The service was also very very good.
We have tried chicken, beef, soups, salads, fish and every time, the food has been excellent.
I highly recommend people skip the Grist Mill and go to Gruene River Grill.
Always top notch – We have been here several times and the food is great. Certainly not your typical menu choices. The Basalmic ribeye was delicious and the Chicken Guadalupe is one of the better chicken dishes I have had in a long time. Wine list is pretty decent. Great location and scenery.
Unique experience – This building and premises are really cool. The restaurant has been totally re vamped from an old barn. it 's really cool. The food is good too. I would only say the pulled pork tacos are pretty heavy and really rich with the sauce. Or over powering. The first one was amazing and not that far into the second one it was too much. But i will return and try something else. My dad had the salmon picatta and it was DELICIOUS..
Best New Braunfels has to offer – This place far surpasses any eatery in the New Braunfels area. Nowhere else can you find such a wide variety of food options, ambiance, first class service, and high quality food. The food is typically described as american, but I find it to be more fusion; they have menu choices in all categories: asian-fusion (wontons), italian (shrimp carbonara, fettuccini alfredo), southwestern (SW shromp pasta, chicken guadalupe), and of cource, american (meatloaf, pork chops, steaks, seafood). Almost more enticing than the food is the atmoshpere. One dining area overlooks the Guadalupe River, while the other is anchored by 30ft ceilings and a rustic stone fireplace. I don't think it's hard to find. The parking lot and sign is directly on the main road (Gruene Rd), but the restaraunt is located behind another building so you have the best view of the river and sunset.
My favorites: Shrimp Won Tons, Balsamic Ribeye, Sirloin Peppercorn, Chicken Guadalupe, Mediterranian Mahi, Homemade Creme Brulee, and the Chocolate Martini or Mexican Martini to drink (they have a full bar).
