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!”
