This is excellent food! Everything is tasty and delish. Kind of expensive, but worth it.
We've been here for lunch a few times and the food is always top notch. On our last visit, we had the salad sampler and a pot of English tea. A homemade cream was served on the side. You can dine indoors or outdoors. Unfortunately, we always stay at a local bed and breakfast when in the area, so we... More
Rude Hostess, Server said no dairy in a sauce, so it was ordered by someone with dairy allergies. Server then proceeded with attitude when ask for the dish to be returned to the kitchen. To add to the experience our gratuity was added to our checks so the owner does not have to make up shortages on daily wages if... More
Situated in historic and scenic Gruene (pronounced Green), Texas, this place serves up wonderfully fresh and tasty fare. It has never disappointed. Be sure and try the desserts. Take time after lunch to explore Gruene --lots of shops, B&Bs, etc. The river is quite nice, too--great for tubing.
Travelling from Austin and San Antonio we met up at River House Tea Room. It's behind the large corner antique store (most people know this). We were greeted upon entering and the first room was pretty full already. Reservations would be a good idea if possible. The service was excellent and I had coffee it was perfect (served in a... More
First off, this wonderful place is in Gruene, NOT in New Braunfels. Let's be precise, here! Secondly, I visited it for the first time to celebrate my birthday, and a celebration it was. I am wildly envious of the chef's gift with food. I sure wish I could cook like this, but it's probably best that I can't, or I'd... More
We went out for a date night and loved the whole experience. The waitstaff was attentive to our every need. The food was exceptional. The chef even came by to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. No msg is served here. Everything is fresh and they offer a nice selection even for a vegan.
The Tea Room is a great, healthy restaurant and you don't find a lot of these in this area with BBQ and Mexican restaurants rampant. They always have great, fresh soups and my favorite is the tuna salad sandwich. You can sit inside or out and we've even seen deer while eating our lunch. This is in downtown Gruene so... More
We took my mother here for her 88th birthday, and there were such wonderful selections, it was hard to choose what to have. The waiter helped us choose. The specials that day were a spinach salad with shrimp and an Asian Chicken salad, both wonderful. My brother had the Duck wrap. The Quiche was chicken with three cheeses, my daughter... More
It's now open for dinner on Friday and Saturday in addition to lunch (Tu-Su). The turn-of-the-century house provides a quaint atmosphere, but the food is the real draw. Very original and fresh - so different from chain restauarants! Several vegetarian options. Helpful wait staff. Excellent homemade soups and creative salads. Desserts so decadent, you need to share. Carol, the owner... More
