Gruene Hall Austin Texas
Gruene Hall, built in 1878, is Texas’ oldest continually operating and most famous dance hall. By design, not much has physically changed since the Hall was first built. The 6,000 square foot dance hall with a high pitched tin roof still has the original layout with side flaps for open air dancing, a bar in the front, a small lighted stage in the back and a huge outdoor garden. Advertisement signs from the 1930's and 40’s still hang in the old hall and around the stage

Gristmill River Restaurant & Bar
Situated on the banks of the Guadalupe River in New Braunfels between Austin and San Antonio, the Gruene cotton gin processed crops raised by area farmers until the wooden structure burned to the ground in 1922. All that remains of the water-powered mill today is the three story brick boiler room – now the Gristmill River Restaurant and Bar.
Chicken Fried Streak - Gristmill River Restaurant & Bar
Chicken Fried Steak**+ Hand breaded and deep fried, top with cream gravy. Great flavor, but served lukewarm with the gravy starting to jell.

The location is wonderful and the employee’s and servers were great. I believe distance between the kitchen and were we were siting may have been the problem for them.
