me and my boyfriend had a wonderful time at gristmill on a saturday afternoon. the food was delicious! you gotta try the appetizer with the red jalapenos stuffed with cheese...everything we ordered (i had the baby back ribs special and my bf had the grilled chicken Caesar salad) was on point! if the weather is nice, you have to sit outside and enjoy the view of the river and the beautiful trees surrounding you. service was nice and i had a great experience. i would definitely come back! gruene is such a nice small town. make sure you stop by gruene hall, which is next door and check out some of the small businesses in the area.

Pros: scenery/view, food, service

Cons: parking

You cannot get a baked potato with a steak here. All of the food is good that i have had here. from hamburgers to steak..i have never had a bad meal here. Upbeat waitstaff of college students most of the time. really nice in the winter when it is not as busy with tourists.

I visited your place on 1/19/09. and was very disappointed in the service at that time.I ordered spare ribs at the time. The salad was ok. When the ribs came, it was a long time before the rest of the meal arrived. In fact I had eaten half the ribs,an the were getting cold before the potatoes even arrived. To compensate for this they brought out two small dishes of steamed veg.

After hearing about the Gristmill from my co-worker, after we moved to San Marcos, we ate at the Gristmill on our first weekend. Service was very good - but they were very crowded and hard to hear one another talk at the table. The food - not a huge selection, but they did have a mainly large beef menu. The meat was good - but IMHO not as great as some other people have stated. Maybe I was expecting a WOW type factor, but no, just a very good meal. Was it worth it...maybe...but I found something better and it is only a few hundred yards up the street...Gruene River Grill...more selection of food and I felt it had better tasting food. But don't take my word for it...go do both restaurants and you decide.

Pros: View of the river and the steaks are just okay for me.

Cons: Not a large selection of food and the taste was average.

You know what they say, location location location. This place is right by the river with great patio seating overlooking the river underneath the big oaks. Food is good, not real big on the ribs, but their not bad. Great appetizers though, and the prices are reasonable. But the setting makes it worth you while.

Great catfish, salads, Tomatillo chicken in a really great setting. Sitting above the Guadalupe River in Gruene, this restaurant used to be a grist mill and has a unique atmosphere.

Great atmosphere. It has a true Texas feel and overlooked the river.
The waitstaff was friendly and attentive.
I ordered the seared tuna which I was worried about ordering in central Texas.
It was great! This is definately one of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at.

This is a very good and clean resturant. It can me perfect for a family outing or a very romantic date. You can chose to sit inside or sit outside with a view of the river. The river is very beautiful and on a nice day you can see the people tubing down the river, on the other hand you can see the beautiful stars at night. I would definately recommed this resturtant. The staff is very friendly and always really to help you in any way.
