Once home to a cotton gin (circa 1878), the reimagined space has been considered one of the most iconic dining spots in Texas for nearly half a century. The original Gristmill building was placed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 1975 and the Gristmill River Restaurant opened its doors in 1977.
A True Texas Experience
On a bluff overlooking the Guadalupe River, the Gristmill’s multi-level patios skirt the 7 indoor dining rooms giving each table a spacious, spectacular view. Historic yet fresh, the ‘Mill has the style and warmth that makes it perfect for a casual evening out or a special occasion celebration spot.
Tastes Like Texas
The extensive menu offers authentic staples like the Texas T-Bone, award-winning ribs and infamous giant plate of onion rings. They also offer a wide array of lighter options such as savory salads and sandwiches. Don’t overlook the bar serving up local beers, classic cocktails, and new world wines.
