Gristmill Restaurant in historic Gruene, TX

Looking up from our table toward the main entrance
The Gristmill is located on the river in Gruene, TX, outside of New Braunfels.  It is HUGE and a popular spot. A destination restaurant if you will, with corresponding tourist prices.

My sister and I weren't terribly hungry so we both got sandwiches.  She had a club and I had a chicken salad.  My chicken had been grilled first which was a nice touch and it boosted the flavor.

For a starter we ordered the garlicky hot sauce and chips.  It was fresh and it was garlicky but not super hot (for me anyway).  Price $5--no refills.

The sandwiches cost around $9 each but didn't come with a side.  We shared an order of their round cut potatoes but they weren't brought out hot which was a disappointment. Price $3.  The sandwiches were very large. I ate mine with a fork.

Service was adequate.  I think our server was new.

Next time, I'll go back in warmer weather and sit outside so I can enjoy the view and order a  burger or a chicken-fried steak.  Lots of people seemed to like the ribs too.
