American Restaurant
$$
“Located beneath Gruene’s landmark water tower, in the ruins of an 1878 cotton gin, overlooking the Guadalupe River, the Historic Gristmill has been considered one of the most unique dining spots in Texas for nearly half a century. A rare combination of history, location and turn-of-the-century architecture create the Gristmill’s legendary Texas experience. Ask for the ribs! They aren't on the menu.”

“Just across from Gruene Hall in Gruene Historic District. In a setting of casual rustic elegance where the all-sports TV’s & air conditioning are always on, Mozie’s features a full bar with premium well liquors, select wines & specialty beers and an all day menu of favorite American classics. Mozie’s sliders (those cheesy, juicy mini-burgers) are simply the best around and our 100% all beef hot dog with jalapeno mustard and sauerkraut takes this American staple to a new level. Mozie’s also features sandwiches, salads, the soon to be famous Char-King, South Texas style nachos, a Top Sirloin for the big boys, skinny garlic fries, crispy onion rings and some extra tasty chips, real guacamole an”

Steakhouse

“ About Myron’s Prime Steakhouse Bill Been, along with his wife Jo Anna, fired up the ovens at Myron’s in 2003. Bill, whose first name is actually Myron, spent over 20 years working for several well-known steakhouses perfecting his art before he and Jo Anna decided to venture out on their own. The Been’s first steakhouse was, and still is, housed in a remodeled 1924 movie theater in downtown New Braunfels, Texas. Should you be called to the restaurant’s office, you’d find yourself in the theater’s projection booth! The New Braunfels location continues to be a resounding success and is constantly named one of the best places to eat in New Braunfels. Bill and Jo Anna’s daughter, Jenny, and husband Steve, have taken over the reins managing the New Braunfels restaurant. Patrons enjoy the restaurant’s intimate booths, ornately stamped tin ceilings, and perfect lighting. In 2011, the Beens decided to make it easier for folks in San Antonio to partake in their wares by opening a second location in Alon Town Centre at the corner of NW Military Highway and Wurzbach Parkway. The new location’s more modern atmosphere is decidedly different as compared to the New Braunfels location – featuring a very large bar with outside seating, a dedicated wine room, and overall “Texas Modern” decor (you’ll have to see it to understand). However, while the Been’s restaurants both have tasteful, inviting ambiance, they are more famous for their steaks, wine and service. Recent accolades include: “Best Steakhouse 2016″ – San Antonio Magazine, “Diners’ Choice Winner 2016″ – OpenTable and Wine Spectator’s 2016 Award of Excellence. Myron’s Prime Steakhouse is open nightly and boasts Chicago prime beef (the top 2% of all prime beef in the United States), a full bar and an extensive wine list featuring wines by the glass and bottle.”

Movie Theatre
“Bring it back to the oldies with this modern drive in movie theater. You can bring your own drinks and food or purchase some there. Movies start after 8 pm. This movie theater is about a 45 minute drive from us but totally worth the drive. ”
