Great food and even better ambiance- sit alongside the Guadalupe River and feel like you're in a tree house.

Grab a bucket of cold beer and order the ribs! Sit outside with the Guadalupe River flowing down below.

Casual all-American dining on the banks of the river in Gruene, Texas. It's large enough to seat a group without reservations and without a long wait time. Live music. My favorite spot for Texas size onion rings

Gristmill is a great place to eat and have a drink. They usually have live entertainment as well as you wait to be called up to be seated. Sometimes though there is a very long line. I would recommend going at off hours.

Large local joint with steak, chicken, seafood, and sandwich options. Peppered steak was ok. Mashed potatoes are good. The beef tenderloin sandwich is super tasty. Nice atmosphere!

The Gristmill is a really neat restaurant! It almost had a treehouse feel to me when we sat outside. The food is very good...a little bit on the pricey side but good to go to!

Located in the historic district of Gruene just beneath the famous
Gruene water tower, The Gristmill opened in 1977, serving steaks and
hamburgers from a tiny kitchen in the corner of the building.
The menu still features thick steaks and large hamburgers, but the
restaurant also serves up popular South Texas fare like chicken fried
steak, fried catfish, grilled chicken, enormous sandwiches, fresh fish
and special dishes like tomatillo chicken and bronzed catfish. Fudge
pie, the enormous strawberry shortcake and our signature Jack
Daniel's Pecan Pie are famous desserts. A full bar with a good wine
list and fresh squeezed lime margaritas are also big hits.

Situated on a bluff overlooking the Guadalupe River, this spectacular restaurant nestled under the shade of towering oak trees. A great way to end a day of shopping in Historic Gruene.
