The service was excellent as was the food. We ate there three times while in Gruene. Chicken fried steak oh my!! Sit by the river for a beautiful view It's the best restaurant in Gruene in my humble opinion.

I went for lunch on a weekday. Great atmosphere, pleasant staff, not crowded, great view, decent prices, quiet enough for conversation at regular volume. I enjoyed my food, and portions were generous.

Oh man. This place was DELICIOUS and the service was great! Cannot say enough good things. They have live music performances inside the main hall or you can enjoy sitting outdoors and taking in the greenery around the place.
