The service was good and very friendly. The server was kind enough to provide a dessert to commemorate our anniversary. My texmex chopped steak was tasty and mashed potatoes were Home made. My wife’s trout was ok, but seemed a bit overdone, but not bad. This place is huge and the outdoor seating is great along the river. Be aware that the heat of summer could hurt the ambience with no apparent AC in the building portion.

Wait on Memorial Day weekend was less than expected! (Major plus) we had a party of eight! Our server was on point all night and gave some great recommendations! As for the food, steaks were all coked to desired temp. Everyone was happy with their meal and we will definitely eat here again!

We went back to this restaurant while staying in the area because the food was good (and highly recommended by some locals), but this time we sat outside on the deck and it was a beautiful view. The deck sits high atop the river, nestled in the trees. As you dine, you can enjoy watching folks float down the river on tubes, or just enjoy the view. Would recommend trying the homemade cheese sticks-- we split an entree as they are very big! The jumbo fried shrimp were very good.

Food quality is equal to the beautiful, river-view or fireside atmosphere!
Love the spicy seafood chowder, fish tacos and Mexican Martinis. Portions are ample; usually have enough to take home.

Our family stopped in Gruene for a weekday lunch. The restaurant is beautiful and set in a lovely area. We were a little later than usual lunch time and the restaurant wasn't busy. We ordered the fried jumbo shrimp, fried cheese sticks with marinara, tortilla soup, and shrimp and grits. The shrimp in both dishes were perfectly cooked and tender. The cole slaw served with the fried shrimp was fresh tasty and slightly sweet, rather than creamy, and was very good. The cheese grits contained bits of jalapeno and had a nice kick that might be too hot for some. The cheese sticks are handmade and the serving is large. The tortilla soup was colorful and tasty, and not overly spicy. The prices were reasonable, and service was very good.
