Family DinnerWeekend night with pre-teen boys. Could not have been better. Food was delicious and the waiter was attentive, friendly, and hospitable. Fully enjoyed it.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMfine dining in grueneI'm not from this town and couldn't really find a good healthy, fine dining place till we stumbled across this place. Very good food, service was outstanding. The restaurant is too dark but they adjusted the lighting for us.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, wonderful atmosphereGreat food, wonderful atmosphere and attentive service. Loved it!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturday NightGreat food, great service. Noise level: very high. By the end of the meal we couldn't hear each other. A nearby table of about 20 was in a celebratory mood, almost as if they were at a sporting event. By the time they had a drink or two, the noise level was painful.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA Superior FindThis is, by far, one of the best restaurants in the area. We are locals and have tried this establishment on numerous occasions. We have yet to be disappointed. The food, the service and the ambience are consistently great. We would highly recommend this restaurant to family, friends or anyone visiting the New Braunfels/Gruene area. You might consider making a reservation because it can get very busy on the weekends. Visit and Enjoy!!!!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchMy daughter took me and a friend to the Gruene Door for brunch. We enjoyed a very good meal and had fun in a very pleasant atmosphere. The squash soup and salad were excellent but the frittata, though tasty, was just a little on the dry side. The service was very efficient and friendly and the noise level even with a high volume of guests allowed conversation without raising your voice. Thank you for a very enjoyable afternoon. We will be back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ChoiceWe needed to celebrate Mothers' Day early due to everyone's schedule. The Gruene Door was the choice of my wife. Its in a great little area of town, and reminded us of Europe. The staff is friendly, ambiance is good and our server was great.
We will definitely return, for lunch or try the brunch.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was awesomeMy friend and I do a monthly dinner. She is a vegetarian so the choice of restaurants are limited. She loved the strawberry salad and I looked the butter squash soup and shrimp with cheese grits! Only thing was I was so hungry on my way to the restaurant that I drank my shake which ruined my appetite. But even so I ate the majority of my meal and suffered from indigestion for days! We will definitely come back to this place for other dishes.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMTook my better half here forTook my better half here for her Birthday. It was a bit out of what she is normally used to, but bragged about it the entire weekend to friends and family.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food. Service was perfect.Great food. Service was perfect.

Nice location.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Meal & ServiceWe had a fabulous dinner @ The Gruene Door this past Saturday night. Food was outstanding, I had the ribeye (juicey and flavorful) and my wife had the pork loin (moist and delicious). We treated ourselves to an excellent bottle of Stag's Leap Artemis wine which served to round out the meal perfectly. Excellent service and great ambiance.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing date nightWe had a wonderful dinner last night at the Gruene Door. Although the rib-eye was no longer on the menu, they had it on special and my husband said it was in the top 10 favorite places to get a rib-eye. The portions were perfect. I ordered shrimp and grits with a side of flash fried spinach. Since I'm gluten intolerant, the restaurant was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. Everything is made fresh and the chef was able to modify my order to be gluten free. The shrimp and grits were some of the best I've had, the grits were so creamy and the shrimp was cooked perfectly and even had a little bite from the seasoning. For dessert, I opted for the creme brûlée and was so pleased to find vanilla bean running throughout the dessert.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMust go destination dining experienWe returned after two years with a request via Open Table for an item that no longer appeared on the menu. They mentioned it when we checked in and served the off menu item cooked expertly. Our waiter was excellent, answered all of the many questions we had about the menu, including what kind of oil was used to cook the spinach with the salmon dish. Excellent wine suggestions. Overall a superb experience that was the highlight of our weekend trip to New Braunfels. We cannot recommend The Gruene Door highly enough. Every time we have come in the past five years, in large groups or just a couple, we have had a wonderful dining experience.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMA friendly neighborhood restaurant!We went to the Gruene Door because we had a group of 12 and they would take reservations.
We had a nice location in the restaurant and a very friendly server who allowed us to do separate checks. She also allowed us to substitute sides with our entrees. The food was great, they had a decent wine and beer selection,and our group really enjoyed the food. All in all, it was a great dining experience.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first time there. a wideOur first time there. a wide range of dishes ordered and ALL were excellent.
