I grew up in New Braunfels and when The Gruene Door opened, it immediately became a family favorite. We keep going back for the service and food. Great place for couples, family, and business. Not a very loud restaurant and it's definitely a classy spot.

If you like a great filet and Caesar salad this is the place for you. In the middle of hill country, Texas, it is one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. The service was excellent. All in all, an excellent experience

Our Sunday morning brunch at The Gruene Door was outstanding! It's not easy pleasing eight ladies, but The Gruene Door serves an amazing selection of brunch items - everyone raved about their dishes. We'll return next time we're in town.

The Gruene Door is always amazing with great food and great service! It's a good idea to call ahead for a reservation. Try the Stuffed Poblano Pepper. It is fabulous!
