Oh, had dinner at the Gruene Door restaurant the other night. Don't bother. Over priced, food marginal. Girl I was with kept saying that I cooked better that the 25-35 dollar dinners not counting salad or soup, or desert. And the wine? 35 dollars when you can buy the same bottle for 12?
This place failed. Crowded, loud, waiters we're like hootie tootie I had a reservation and won't be going back.
Food was amazing, but it was a very loud atmosphere. I expected a quieter environment. Overall it was a good experience.
The food quality has been excellent during our last couple visits. I recently had the shrimp and grits, and this week I had the Crusted Cod special. Very nice.
Has been a favorite for years. Never a disappointment.
We enjoyed our visit to The Gruene Door very very much! Everything was wonderful!
Excellent food and service as always
Ambiance is better in front room with bar. Service was great! All three of us had fish dishes. Bueurre Blanc sauce needed salt this time. I prefer the special with the cod instead of Arctic char.
Enjoyed my birthday dinner with my friends! The food and service was excellent! We had a wonderful experience overall. Highly recommend!
Im from Houston and I suppose I am spoiled. Compared to Houston restaurants in this category it did not compare.
The pickings are slim here so it is one of the better.
We took our little Maltese so we did outdoor dining. Our server was excellent. He was also the bartender cuz we got there early. His Margaritas are excellent. We shared some sausage nacho appetizers and they were delish. 5+ My husband raved about the beef vegetable soup. 5+ . My rib eye was a 4. Too much gravy and a little tough but tasty. We always enjoy coming here when in Gruene. Ambience was good and service excellent.
The food was amazing. Quiet and romantic.
Best place to have lunch with your besties or to take a client for a working lunch. Atmosphere is quiet enough to chat without trying to talk over the table next to you or music. Staff knows how to take care of their customers.
One of our favorite places. Never disappoints.
The restaurant ambiance was very nice. We had asked for a quiet table on the reservation, and a large table of children were seated shortly after we were seated. I ordered rack of lamb which I enjoyed but the sides and sauce were barely warm. My husband ordered the pork chop which we saw said "smoked" on the menu. My husband hates smoked so he was going to change the order when the waiter went back and inquired with the kitchen. He was told it wasn't a strong flavor without sauce so my husband ordered it. It was a very strong smoke flavor unfortunately, but he made the best of it. Our friends seemed to enjoy their meals. Our Scottish waiter was very sweet and attentive.
My friend and I love checking out new places to eat. Found The Gruene Door here when looking for a place in New Braunfels. She had the ribeye and it was so tender, seasoned perfectly. I had the double cut pork chop, cooked perfectly.
She had the brownie for dessert. It was lightly crunchy on the outside and very moist inside. I tried the waffle bread pudding and it was amazing. Both came with a scoop of ice cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce.
My parents plan on going for their anniversary dinner this year.
Always consistent... Brad is a very polished server
Drinks and atmosphere were great. Food was a little dry but good.
You are always consistent . There are never any surprises. You know it’s going to be great.
Food & service great! It’s pretty dark, maybe some different light would be helpful
As always, the food, service and atmosphere is perfect!
Took client's to dinner while they were in town. Great food, great experience and very friendly staff.
We absolutely love The Gruene Door. We held our son's wedding reception there years ago and recently celebrated our 42nd Wedding Anniversary. The food, service and ambience was perfect. Bradley R., our waiter, was prompt but not hovering, and his wine and food recommendations were spot on. We enjoyed Toasted Pecan Crust Rack of Lamb which was the best ever along with the garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus, Strawberry Spinach Salad and Bruschetta. The Praline Cheesecake was delicious. Even the coffee was served in a warmed mug. Bradley took good care of us! You can't go wrong with the Gruene Door.
Our waiter was fantastic, and the food was amazing! Definitely worth the visit!
Our first visit! We all really enjoyed our food. Kate was a great server! No problem changing sides and no up charge! We will definitely be back!!
The Gruene Door was an excellent place to dine. We had a wonderful dining experience by eating some delicious and hot food and experienced excellent customer service by the professional staff. Thank you!
The salmon dinner was excellent, accompanied by incredible flash fried spinach (and I don't normally like spinach!). Everyone in our group raved about their meal.
My group had a great time. I enjoyed it so much, I took another friend there the following week.
Delicious food and menu was not overwhelming to decide from.
Our waitress was outstanding!!!!
Everything was fantastic. I only wish they had the garlic mashed potatoes available for lunch. But the steak was great either way. And the fried spinach was outstanding.
Very nice experience. Great food and great service.
Wonderful Waite staff. Food was excellent as was the service. My wife and I loved it. It was Valentine’s Day and it was all for her. She loved the entire experience from beginning to end. From the moment we walked in to the moment we left, she was smiling ear to ear.
I didn't know what to expect from the "Gruene Door" but it was a very pleasant experience. The food was great with amazing flavor. The atmosphere itself was good. The service was excellent. The only thing it was "missing" was some soft jazz or "R&B" playing in the background but thats just my opinion (lol). The only negative is that a table close to us was exceedingly noisy but it is what it is. The food is worth the price. Overall we had a great experience and I reccomend it to others.
We went to The Gruene Door for a Valentine's Day dinner and were pleasantly surprised by the overall experience. Despite this being V Day, the area was surprisingly quiet (we had prior reviews, some complaining about noise level). It was a Thursday, rather than a weekend, so maybe that something to do with it? Anyway, the food was great, the staff couldn't have been better, and we will most definitely return.
This was my 4th or 5th time coming to Gruene door but on this Valentine’s Day, it wasn’t my favorite. I thought they needed a few more choices on the menu because I’m gluten free and also it thought it was pricey for what we got.
Excellent food and menu for Valentines Day. I highly recommend this restaurant.
This was our first time dining at this restaurant. Food was great and the value was exceptional. It is hard to find anything negative about this restaurant. The only things negative were the noise and the relative smallness of the space between tables. Overall a very good experience!
They were very nice about us being a tad late for our reservation due to traffic. It was Valentine's and they explained the time alotment for table turn around. As it turned out, we didn't need all the time allowed and the timing was perfect. They also split our meal in the kitchen. Portions have gotten so large that my husband and I split an entree.
Valentines Day, loved the special menu
The service and food is great. My wife and I have dinner there all most every Saturday night.
I highly recommend their food and am always satisfied with the friendly wait staff.
