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.

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.
