The Gruene Door
Open for lunch and dinner, we are the perfect destination for a romantic dinner, birthday celebration, private party, lunch with friends, or just a casual night out. Please visit our website to view our menu.
The server was knowledgeable and prompt, all of our meals were delicious. We will definitely be coming back!!!
too loud for older people, we had a difficult time conversing with our friends.
We always have an enjoyable time and great food at The Gruene Door!
Relaxed private feel even with lively atmosphere and while serving many others. Service was excellent; nice timing which also contributed to the relaxed feeling. The stuffed poblano pepper was very nice with a wonderful blend of flavors. Will like to plan another visit and try other entrees.
My favorite restaurant in the Gruene area; they never disappoint.
The Gruene Door is a found gem! For those of us who have circled the historic section of town one too many times, I am thrilled to discover this quaint pocket of town. To be honest, we did not expect anything but a madhouse since we came on Mother’s Day but were pleased to find that even though they were full, they had everything under control. We were seated immediately and our server, Alejandro was attentive but not intrusive. The biggest surprise was Jon, the bartender, was able to whip up a Keto friendly Lemondrop Martini! That is a first and will keep me coming back. The food did not disappoint. My filet was flavorful and tender. My son enjoyed his burger which was huge. The atmosphere was pleasant and tranquil. It was lovely to carry on a conversation without having to shout at each other. Thank you, Gruene Door for the best Mother’s Day in recent memory. I will be back soon!
Great food. We went for mother's day brunch and it was amazing! The service there is awesome! Definitely will be going back soon!
Food was amazing
Great experience! Service, food, and atmosphere were super! A little disappointed that there was a limited menu for Mother's day (brunch menu) but overall we enjoyed our visit!
Great as usual
The service was great. The spinach dip and shrimp and grits were amazing!
Waiter was attentive and food was excellent! Restaurant was decorated beautifully.
Food, service, and ambiance were amazing. Would definitely go back and recommend.
Great service from Brad! Very consistent quality food. Like to see some new items on the menu, st least seasonally. Noise factor still an issue during busy times.
The seafood trio plate is awesome and the wine selection is good.
The Gruene Door used to have a very high noise level, which was distracting when trying to dine. They now have noise buffers, large pieces of art and carpets on the walls which have helped immensely to keep the noise down...now we can really enjoy our wonderful food and ambiance!
The food, service and ambiance were great!!! The noise level was obnoxious...we couldn’t hear ourselves even speak. The concrete floors were to blame. They should definitely invest some time & money into making that better for the sake of their guests who want to enjoy and unwind at dinner.
We had a 7:15 p.m. reservation on a Friday night. We arrived a few minutes early, and the hostess informed us that our table would be located in the bar. I told her that we did not want to sit in the bar, and she was happy to move us to the main dining room. The food and the service were great. At 7:30 in the evening, the restaurant was very loud and it was difficult to carry on a conversation. As the evening wore on, around 8:30 p.m., the noise finally died down enough to have a conversation without talking loud.
Gruene Door is my favorite restaurant in the New Braunfels area. The food and service are always excellent.
Had the pumpkin seed crusted cod special. This should alway be on the menu as a regular item. Excellent
We love taking our out of town guest here to try the flashed fried spinach. You should ask for it with any entree, I do not think you will be disappointed.
First time will return next time in New Braunfels/Gruene. Stuck between 2 options server (Colin) helped and made an excellent choice !!
Wonderful menu, especially in an area ( Gruene ), where burgers and bar food dominate. Waiter was very professional, food was perfectly done, all good .
Second time there. Will definately go again
Very enjoyable evening. We went on a Thursday night - special occasion. Was not busy. Excellent service. Food was excellent. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because they apparently do not serve bread with the meal (not a big deal, but would have been nice) and because a side salad is a $4.99 upcharge.
Would definitely go again next time we are in the area. Décor and setting very nice. A 2-3 minute drive from Gruene Hall (as a reference point).
Food and service wonderful! We came to celebrate a birthday and had a great experience I would recommend the stuffed poblano to everyone! Bet thing on the menu!
Awesome as always!
The food was amazing!!! The staff was kind and our waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu and also the wine selection. The cocktails were great, especially the signature drink. Our guests were from Austin and Houston and they loved it as well. We can’t wait to go back.
Amazing service and food. Thank you for an outstanding birthday dinner!
Pleasant, Popular place, the Gruene Door has a faithful following
Save room for the bread pudding. It is the best ever. Excellent food every time we visit.
On vacation from San Diego. Nice wine list with generous pour. Stuffed poblano chili portion was ample and delicious. Peppercorn crusted ahi seared as requested and tasty. Both dishes had lovely presentations. Desserts were adequate would recommend saving the calories. Ordered crime brulee and carrot cake. Carrot cake was a bit dry and needed more cream cheese frosting.
Attentive service. Quiet for a Thursday dinner. Highly recommend.
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.
