We were greeted immediately and directed to our tables, the server was quick to get drink and appetizer order. The restaurant started filling up the tables in our area, I think our server was given tables in the front area of the restaurant so he was slow coming back around to check on us after the restaurant got busy, however, the service staff for the tables in our area were attentive and quick to take care of clearing our table and refilling our glasses. overall the food was great and the staff, including Philip our waiter were friendly and attentive.
I made it a point to tell the staff that wee were celebrating a birthday upon making my reservations. They totally forgot!😔
This is in what the townspeople call "New Gruene." The restaurant is beautiful inside, and it has a large outdoor patio with great music playing. We ordered a shrimp appetizer, which was served with ample slices of french bread to mop up the sauce. Then we had the rack of lamb, which was the full rack!, crusted, and cooked a perfect medium rare. The vegetables were fresh and delicious. The service was attentive but not overbearing. The wine list could use some work, perhaps a few more local selections.
Great food and ambiance! We sat outside and enjoyed it very much. Our first time eating here but we plan to be back when in town.
We went to the Gruene Door for our anniversary. The food is exquisite and the service is amazing. Great for a casual dining option or for special occasions. Great atmosphere
We went on a Sunday evening and only the Sunday a brunch menu was available. This was very disappointing because we didn’t know beforehand. We liked what we did order from our limited choices but would not go back again.
The food was good. There was a large party in the back so our service was a little slow. Thankfully we were not in a rush. We will go back again.
Excellent meal and service
Food and drinks were excellent. We are inside but the patio dining looks nice,
We are regular customers, have never been disappointed.
I do want to make note, that back in January I was very very ill in the hospital. I was not eating, everything tasted awful, so the doctor told my husband to "just bring her whatever she wants". The last time we were there they had a butternut squash soup special that I really liked, so my husband went over to ask for the soup as a takeout, it was not on the menu that night. He explained the situation to the manager and the chef made it for me special. It was the best meal I had while I was sick. It is not only good food, but good people
The Gruene Door was absolutely wonderful. The food was good, the wine was good, and our wait staff was perfect. We will be back for sure.
The Gruene Door always satisfies. The regular menu has plenty of options; seafood, beef, pasta, salads. They usually have daily specials which are always exceptional. Harvest squash soup is always offered and is the best soup in town...
By far one of the best meals we have ever had! Every single thing we ordered was absolutely fantastic and unforgettable! I had the salmon. My husband had the rack of lamb, and we shared the shrimp cakes as an appetizer. We ended the meal with creme brûlée. Again, I could not say enough about how phenomenal the food was for us.
The waiter was extremely attentive and provided awesome recommendations; based on reviews, I went with the Salmon.. a must have. We love the ambiance, the corner table was awesome for our intimate and romantic dinning experience
Always CONSISTENT , that’s what brings us back.
It was virtually impossible to carry on a comfortable conversation with the people at our 4 top table due to the ambient loud noise of collective conversations in the dining room. This has been an ongoing problem every time we have dinner at the Gruene Door and is a deterrent from having dinner there in the future.
Also, the food tasted too salty including the squash soup.
Always great food.
Awesome place. Love it there. Food is awesome. Wine is awesome
The food was amazing as usual. Warm and inviting atmosphere friendly staff. We had a great time.
Didn’t know that Sunday brunch was served all day but entrees available after verifying with kitchen. Both selections were available and service was great! We will be going back with entire family on tow for brunch this time!
Don't miss the flash fried spinach. I had it as an accompaniment to my salmon and both were delicious. Our party of four ordered the tomato bruschetta to start and it was a very generous serving. I am sure will dine there again when we are in the area.
The food, atmosphere, help, everything was wonderful. Great room to have a private party is also part of this great place. Perfect location in between Gruene and New Braunfels. Highly recommend!
A must try, the food was excellent! The Salmon was delicious and the Lemon salad dressing was to die for! Highly recommend the restaurant.
I love this restaurant! I actually discovered it several years ago when my son and his family lived a couple of blocks away. Now I come with friends and neighbors. It was my husbands birthday and our anniversary and this was the perfect place to come! He had never been and loved the ambiance, the food and staff was so attentive!!
Main dining room was so loud we had to leave. Will try again, but sit in bar area.
This was the best meal we have had in a long time. Salmon dish with flash fried spinach and shrimp and grits were both great! Waiter was also fabulous - wish I knew his name!
I had the pork chop, it came with garlic mash potatoes and 3 asparagus spears for $26. So the garlic mash was good but not special and only 3 asparagus spears, Ok not a deal breaker. But my chop, though it had a nice flavor, was tough and very chewy. I had 3 small bites from ine cut. It was actually hard to cut with the correct knife. They were ready to correct this by making me another one but by the time it was brought out, the rest of my party's plates were removed and we were on to birthday dessert. Of course I'm not goung to eat my chop while they watch so I had them prep it to go. Now I told them not to bring me a whole new plate since I had eaten my 3 spears and 4 bites of garlic mash but because it took sooo long to get my new pork chop, the waiter had removed my unfinished plate which I didn't catch since we were in deep conversation. So I basically paid $26. for 4 bites of garlic mash and 3 spears! To top it off, knowing that my experience was not up to par, which tells me a lot about this resturant, they didn't even offer to discount my plate. Here's the thing mr. restaurant, most people will return to a place if the food is decent and experience is great but most people won't return to a resturant if food is really good but their experience is less than. It would have gone a long way if they would have even taken 30% off but that wasn't the case. I would not recommend or return!
Thank you Josh! Outstanding food, staff and service! Jimmy
Wonderful experience! The food and service was amazing.
Good crowd on a Friday night, so restaurant was a bit loud. Drinks were good. Service was fine. Food was on point. Great dining experience with friends.
The Gruene Door is a wonderful place to enjoy dinner. The food is always great. In fact the Gruene Door is my choice to take the share holders of my corporation to when they are in town from Europe.
We loved everything about this restaurant! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was outstanding. We will definitely recommend and come back!
The Salmon is amazing and the flash fried spinach is worth the drive from San Antonio. Love this place! Service is always great.
The food was good, but the portion size was a little small. The server was not friendly with us. He did not check on us very often. We went for my boyfriend’s birthday and I notified them and not even a happy birthday... The price warranted better service. I was disappointed and I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Met here with friends and did not know what to expect. Read some good reviews but, this was better than good. Everything was done the way a great restaurant does things. No hesitation to recommend!
Memorable setting for New Year’s Eve celebration. Steak and bacon-wrapped shrimp were superb. Flavors -exquisite and presentation - perfection.
Gruene Door has never failed to deliver a satisyfing and wonderful dining experience. One of, if not the best restraunts in New Braunfels.
We were very impressed with our waitress and enjoyed our gift card that we had received from friends.
I will admit that we were disappointed with our experience this time around. We had a party of 11 which was accomodated well so that was a plus but because we had such a large party, there was a 20% gratuity charge included (also fine if the service was on par with that amount). Our waitress was not very good about checking in on us. We went for dinner and the kitchen doesn't serve cheeseburgers which is totally fine but she checked with the kitchen to see if they would make one for our daughter and they said they would. We were all done eating by the time my daughter's cheeseburger came. I would have rather you just tell me you can't make it than make my 6 year old watch everyone else eat while she sat waiting for her food. Next time, if your kitchen is too busy then don't agree to do a special order, stick with what you know.
Always excellent! Food and Service both consistently great.
