Supporting our local businesses is so important, as they build the heart of our New Braunfels community and help it be all it is.
We appreciate every one of our local businesses, and this month, we’re giving a hearty Texas shoutout for Gruene River Grill, one of my favorite restaurants.
Food, Views, and History
Gruene River Grill is situated right by the Guadalupe River, so the views are spectacular. The rustic building has a huge door you enter through and once inside, the ceilings are even taller. There are floor-to-ceiling bookcases and wooden floors. The back wall is lined with picture windows allowing a view of the river.
The quaint and inviting atmosphere is a precursor to the wonderful food. I have tried just about everything on the menu, and it is all delicious!
Most plates are shareable. On our first trip, we made the mistake of ordering an appetizer and a meal for each of us. Needless to say, we had food to take home.
The staff is always so friendly, and it is easy to chat with them, as the acoustics are surprisingly adequate for conversation. Mostly, we love that we can have a conversation during our meal.
My husband has a significant hearing loss and wears hearing aids, so we are grateful that the music is not blaring in the background. It is loud enough to hear but not loud enough to drown out speech.
When we are with a group of more than five, then hearing becomes more difficult, and he uses his Multi Mic so that the conversation can flow right into his hearing aids.
Today, we met Heather Massey from the Heart of Texas Better Business Bureau. She is an old friend who also moved to central Texas from Midland. She, too, was impressed with her meal. My husband had no trouble participating in the conversation.
