We got out of San Antonio and struck it rich. For us, the rustic setting and great combo of value , food, and staff worked perfectly.

I have had several things on the menu and have not been disappointed at all!! Everything had great flavor and go hungry because the portions are very large. You must give the Italian Margarita a try, the best I've ever had! During the summer you can sit outside and hear the river flowing, the atmosphere in general is great!

I thought the food was great. I have had the catfish and an oriental salad with grilled shrimp. Both are terrific. I think I enjoyed the salad the most. Ask for the bread. It is delicious.

This town has it all! Great food, romantic atmosphere, and western charm. I love walking with that special someone during the sunset around this charming little town to shop and drink wine. Sometimes you can catch a few lyrics from a local favorite band as you pass the famous Gruene Hall. Will make this place a monthly stop on my... More

Great view over the river. My pork tenderloin medallions with garlic mashed potatoes and green beans was excellent. Service was prompt. Must confess I like the menu selection better at next door Grist Mill but this was great.

This is one local restaurant we frequent! Balsalmic Ribeye, and Filet Gorgonzola are to die for!!! We went last night (Tuesday) and not crowded at all. If you are a local, get over there during the week! Key Lime Pie Martinis must not be missed! Service from Liana was superb!

Fifth visit, each time is as good or better than the last. Staff very efficient , positive and friendly. Comfortable atmosphere with nice hill country decor. The jalapeno corn chowder is excellent and my wife can't quit talking about the pork loin. Don't miss this restaurant.
