Valentine's Day in Gruene

Trying to come up with a memorable Valentine’s Day that doesn’t break the bank is hard.  Really hard. You can spend hours planning and several hundred dollars all for about an hour and a half of entertainment. How about saving yourself the stress and crazy expense and come spend the evening with us in Gruene? The perfect date night is as easy as getting in your car and driving a few miles down the road to our little historic town.

We recommend starting your evening with wine tasting at The Grapevine. They offer 3 complimentary tastings per person, then you may purchase a glass or bottle of your favorite to enjoy in the tasting room or outside in the garden. 

If romance is what you crave, then the Gristmill is the place for you. 

Steak and Shrimp.

A tender and juicy 8 ounce New York Strip accompanied by bacon-wrapped stuffed Texas gulf jumbo shrimp. Served with loaded mashed potatoes and an iceberg wedge salad ($24.99). Don’t forget dessert! Indulge yourself with a most decadent favorite…Ultimate Turtle Cheesecake, creamy cheesecake with rich fudge, topped with caramel, pecans, chocolate chips and whipped cream. Served with two spoons, just the right ending to a truly romantic meal. No reservations necessary. 

At Cantina del Rio, let your love sizzle! 

Try the sizzlin’ tender chicken or beef fajitas marinated in a special fresh squeezed lime marinade, served with beans, rice, real guacamole, fresh pico and your choice of fresh flour or corn tortillas. $13.95 for one or $24.95 for you and your sweetie. We also recommend the famous margarita flight to go with your fajitas. It'll be the tastiest Valentine's you've ever had!
No reservations necessary. 

Also, Cantina del Rio is the perfect spot for a Gal-entine's Day dinner for you and your friends. After all, they've got margaritas colder than your exes heart!

Looking for a delicious steak dinner and martinis? Mozie's is the place to be.

Steak! Flat top grilled, covered in Hoffbrau lemon butter and served with a bleu cheese wedge salad and a choice of side. Choose from a succulent 6 ounce filet ($19.95) or a 16 ounce porterhouse t-bone ($22.99). To “sweeten” your dining experience, they offer specialty martinis, including Strawberry Cheesecake, Godiva Chocolate or Key Lime Pie! No reservations necessary. 

Now that you’ve had a delicious dinner for two it’s time to dance the night away!

Head back over to Gruene Hall for the Valentine’s Dance with Dale Watson and his Lone Stars.
You can two step the night away on Gruene Hall's historic dance floor. It's a great excuse to hold on tight to your Valentine.
