Had the peppercorn steak and it was so good. They cooked the steak exactly how I liked it, the mashed potatoes melted in my mouth and the fresh green beans were delicious. My family enjoyed their food as much as I did. The wait staff was terrific as well. Very courteous and helpful. The view was pretty cool too.

Love this place! Food is amazing. Try the Guadalupe chicken, jalapeño crawfish chowder, or the bacon wrapped shrimp. The banana pudding was great as well. Sit outside because the view is amazing! Waitress was very nice. You won't regret it!

We'd heard great things about Gruene River Grill but we were focused on Gritsmill as the "big night out"...we came to Gruene River Grill for lunch and were so surprised by how nice it was and they had AC! In hindsight we probably would've made this a nicer evening meal but lunch was great! Food and service were outstanding -... More

My husband and I decided to go to Gruene on the 4th of July. We had already eaten at the Gristmill, which was good, and we wanted to try this restaurant. Wow! We were pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent, and the prices were fair. We'll be back, but next time we'll wait for a table with a river view.

Everything we ate at this restaurant was delicious, but make sure you try the corn chowder and the blackberry cobbler. The creme brûlée was the best I have had in a long time. The service was good as well and the restaurant sits on the river, so the views from the windows are pretty. There is a patio. They are... More

Food was awesome, great staff, a little bit of a wait, but well worth it. Nice view also tucked just above the river. I will definitely go again if I come back here.

We chose to eat dinner at the Gruene River Grill and were not disappointed! We were seated near the windows facing the river, and were hoping to have more of a view, but couldn't see much of the river. It was lovely, though, since it was too hot to sit outside on the patio. The restaurant is rustic, beautiful, and... More

Get there early in the evening to avoid a wait and sit outside. The view of the river is peaceful. I got the garlic chicken and ate every bite.

Great place and fool outstanding. Little loud but understandable due to the building structure. Sometimes is a challenge to get in, but usually that is only the weekends
