My wife and I had a great lunch here today on the banks of the Guadeloupe River. I had the balsamic ribeye and she had the Gruene chicken enchiladas, both of which were outstanding. This is a large rustic restaurant in a beautiful setting with all the great boutique stores in the area.

Good food but you have to be prepare for long wait especially if you're requesting for outside dining . They have kids meal but not on the menu so you have to ask.

Food was excellent and your view of the river while you eat made it an experience. Servers were attentive and the servings were huge. Try their onion rings. They're awesome.

This is one of our favorite places to eat when we visit Gruene. The food is always great. The Jalapeno Crawfish Chowder is awesome! A table by the windows so that you can see the river offers a relaxing atmosphere. You can take family, have a nice date night, or bring guest, and all will enjoy.

Greune River Grill does not disappoint. Great central Tex atmosphere right on the river. Very good food. Nice place to entertain guests from out of town.

Bring your appetite, the portions are big enough to share with 3 people. Staff was very friendly. Love the old beams in the main dinning room. When the weather permits, sit outside.

Kept seeing this place mentioned at this site, and after our last visit to Gruene and having eaten already at the Gristmill (excellent food there too) we wandered around and notice the Gruene River Grill and after reviewing the menu standing outside, we vowed to try this place next visit to Gruene.

My wife and I ate there for dinner on a Monday, inside vs outdoor seating. The place is a converted barn, mill or something... the old interior and the high ceilings made for a very reasonable amount of noise despite the number of people inside. The service was very good, wine selections were also quite good, and the portions of... More
