If you are traveling between Austin and San Antonio, this is a must. Had Jalapeño Crawfish Soup and Chicken Fried Steak.

We had a really good meal here sitting outside. On a warm evening it is hard to imagine anything nicer! The service was very efficient and friendly and the food was good. Not so sure about the mojitos but the margaritas were excellent!

The Gruene River Grill seems to be thought of as the "other" nice restaurant on the street. In my experience (two visits to each), the Gruene River Grill has better food and better service. The ambiance is appropriate for the location.

A bit difficult to find but a great experience. The fish tacos were great! The beer options were solid and the service was exceptional (Jody). Check it out!

The sign out front is the only way we knew this place existed. After parking we walked down a long sidewalk. The gruene river grill was incredible. The waiter was the best. The food was top notch. We also had an awesome view of the river. We will return!!!

My wife and I were staying in New Braunfels, TX and the Wyndham Resort there recommended this restaurant among several others. We were not disappointed!

My husband and I come here all the time. It's one of my favorite places to go to when I need great food and tasty drinks. My favorite meal is the queso burger and the rattler mixed drink. The fish tacos are amazing too if I'm not in the mood for a burger. They also have beer-ritas that are awesome.... More

This isn't my first go to place in Gruene, and I'm not sure why. The food is consistently good, and the atmosphere is great for a lunch date with friends or a romantic dinner date with your special someone. We've also had parties with 20 people and they always find a way to accommodate us. We try to sit outside... More

The lemon chicken was delicious! Sides were fine. Nice server and a window table with a glimpse of the river. I enjoyed it!
