Went tobtgis restaurant with another couple and had an excellent meal with great service, good wine selection, and very relaxed environment. The lamb was cooked to perfection and everything was done well. Will definitely go again if we anywhere close!

Enjoyed dinner here without any reservations. We arrived early enough that reservations weren’t needed: around 5:30 pm. The food and ambiance were excellent, however the ceasar salad wasn’t impressive. But the chicken piccata was delish!

I grew up in New Braunfels and when The Gruene Door opened, it immediately became a family favorite. We keep going back for the service and food. Great place for couples, family, and business. Not a very loud restaurant and it's definitely a classy spot.

If you like a great filet and Caesar salad this is the place for you. In the middle of hill country, Texas, it is one of the best steaks I have ever eaten. The service was excellent. All in all, an excellent experience

Our Sunday morning brunch at The Gruene Door was outstanding! It's not easy pleasing eight ladies, but The Gruene Door serves an amazing selection of brunch items - everyone raved about their dishes. We'll return next time we're in town.
