... and did we mention the incredible climate of the Hill Country?

Gruene Hall, built as a saloon by H.D. Gruene in the 1880s is a major attraction on the weekends for some live country music. Such notable musicians as Jerry Jeff Walker, Lyle Lovett, and George Strait began their careers there playing on the weekends. Also, Willie Nelson, Jerry Lee Lewis and The Dixie Chicks have held center stage at "the oldest dancehall in Texas".

Next to the dance hall is a restaurant in the building that was once the grist mill. Today, The Grist Mill Restaurant makes a most unusual place for dining.  The atmosphere is literally open air.

You can relax at their full bar, enjoy beautiful patio dining and buy a t-shirt to commemorate the visit.
