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!”

    It’s Brine Time y’all! Bird Dog Spice Blends are back just in time for the holiday season. I am so excited to bring back our flagship blend, The Turkey Brine, along with 4 MORE brand new blends you can find on our new website. Yes, I finally have a website up where folks can read about and order Bird Dog Spice Blends and merchandise directly! Locals can choose the “local pick up” option and your pickup at the restaurant will be arranged. I am so proud to announce that www.birddogspiceco.com is live. Stay tuned for our “Seasoning Greetings” bundles to roll out next week! If you wanted Turkey Brine for Thanksgiving and we have your order by Monday at 5pm we can most likely get it to you in time for “brine time”. Unless you live in Hawaii or Alaska. I’m new to this mail order thing but I’m pretty sure those might be a little hard to do. But I promise I’ll do all I can to fulfill all your orders as fast as I possibly can. We will have recipes and more pictures and fun stuff on the website soon! #brine #turkeybrine #birddogspiceco #seasoninggreetings #burgerblend #citrusgarlicpepper #Burgerblend #NOLA ...

    All my locals who have ordered as of now. There is a bag of seasonings at The River House with your name on it. We are closed today but open tomorrow (Wednesday) at 11am. There are brine instructions on the bird dog website as well under the “recipes” tab. So excited to hear how all these birds turn out!

    Hi Ross ! I just met you yesterday at the currents booth . I need some of this. We are a GSP family and also want to get for our turkey and some gifts .

    This spice blend is definitely On Point! Booyah!

    I just messaged y’all

    Is one bottle good for how big a bird?

    Is it ready for pick up today? We stopped by on Sat and it hadn’t arrived yet.

    I saw it at H-E-B

    This place is awesome!! 🤠👍
