a wonderful saturday lunch!!. me and my boyfriend had a wonderful time at gristmill on a saturday afternoon. the food was delicious! you gotta try the appetizer with the red jalapenos stuffed with cheese...everything we ordered (i had the baby back ribs special and my bf had the grilled chicken Caesar salad) was on point! if the weather is nice, you have to sit outside and enjoy the view of the river and the beautiful trees surrounding you. service was nice and i had a great experience. i would definitely come back! gruene is such a nice small town. make sure you stop by gruene hall, which is next door and check out some of the small businesses in the area.
No Baked Potatos here........... You cannot get a baked potato with a steak here. All of the food is good that i have had here. from hamburgers to steak..i have never had a bad meal here. Upbeat waitstaff of college students most of the time. really nice in the winter when it is not as busy with tourists.
Good steaks and that's about it.. After hearing about the Gristmill from my co-worker, after we moved to San Marcos, we ate at the Gristmill on our first weekend. Service was very good - but they were very crowded and hard to hear one another talk at the table. The food - not a huge selection, but they did have a mainly large beef menu. The meat was good - but IMHO not as great as some other people have stated. Maybe I was expecting a WOW type factor, but no, just a very good meal. Was it worth it...maybe...but I found something better and it is only a few hundred yards up the street...Gruene River Grill...more selection of food and I felt it had better tasting food. But don't take my word for it...go do both restaurants and you decide.
