OUR REVIEWS

“Out of this world food & service. We had the deviled eggs both with the bacon jam & without. Both were amazing, but that bacon jam was out of this world! For dinner our party had the half chicken, mushroom meatloaf, and hamburgers. NO WORDS TO DESCRIBE THE DELICIOUSNESS. We are still talking about the food this morning. Oh yeah, let’s not forget the soup, yes the wonderful soup. We had the potato leek soup & the tomato basil soup. OH MY GOD!!!I have never had soup that good. I do not care for tomato soup……until now! You will not go wrong eating here.”

“Great place to get lunch or dinner. Found it randomly while at the market and was pleasantly surprised. The have plenty of outside seating which I suggest if it’s good weather. Food was great also. I had a club sandwich with fries. Service was fast and accurate. Two very good things to have in the restaurant business.”

“My son took me here for a Birthday lunch. What a lovely place! It was a beautiful day so we sat outside. We shared an appetizer of Fried Green Tomatoes…They were absolutely wonderful! I had the grilled cheese sandwich with a cup of Tomato Basil Soup for dipping! The sandwich was made just right and had leaves of, I believe basil, in the sandwich. We had a beer with our lunch and it was delivered with a frosted mug! Everything was just so delightful! I would surely suggest taking your special someone here!”

“The River House is just off the beaten path in Gruene Texas. It has a casual atmosphere with an unexpected menu. The lobster nachos are amazing! The menu offers an in house smoked salmon to burgers. A nice variety of beer & wine are also available. Sit on the patio or inside while experiencing creative cuisine in a hometown restaurant or stop by for afternoon tea!”

    P.s. Turkey Brine will be great for brining chicken and pork as well.

    The River House

    Veterans Day always gets the emotions rolling as we think about those we know and love who served for our country and all the sacrifice that came with that service.

    For us this year, Veterans Day, is even more emotional than any before as our family had to say an early and unexpected goodbye to our beloved soldier Marine Sgt. Christian Franden. Christian was a huge fan of what we do at The River House and was always bragging to others about his cousin’s restaurant in New Braunfels. While we may have some tasty food, the ones to really brag about are the ones who signed up to protect us, our freedom and our country. These are the heroes we look up to and celebrate in our family.

    This Veterans Day (today), in the honor of Christian and all the veterans this message will reach, we would like to invite those who wore or still wear the uniform to come by for a meal with us today for 50% off and we will also send you home with a $20 gift card to come back and see us for a meal another time. We appreciate your service and your sacrifice more than words and food can express. We know our boy Christian would approve of this message. 🇺🇸🪖❤️
    Thank a veteran today.
