Our first visit to San Antonio, and this place was wonderful. Absolutely great breakfast. We even tried to eat here again on Saturday before going to the airport, but the wait was over an hour long. My wife enjoyed the gift shop and bought several items. Highly recommend!

Love, love, love this place. Be ready for an extra long wait to be seated unless you get there super early before they open and wait at the gates. The biscuits & gravy, sweet cream waffles and the breakfast tacos are wonderful and highly recommended. My husband and I got all 3 and shared it.

The food was lovely and the service was even better. I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. Right on the riverwalk what more could you ask for. The gift shop was really cute as well and the gingerbread house that they have on display during the christmas time.

I love the Guenther House for sentimental reasons. It's historic, Pioneer flour (hello!), the sweet gift shop, and the quiche. Mostly, I love it , because my mother-in-law hosted a Mother's Day luncheon for every mother she knew. She decorated tables with small potted roses, which are now growing in our front yard. We ate delicious chicken salad sandwiches and... More

One of my favorite brunch spots when visiting San Antonio! It's a very popular place, so expect to wait. The food is freshly prepared and quite tasty. Wait staff is very friendly. There's a small gift shop on the second floor where you can buy Pioneer soups, sauces and other dried mixes. Worth the wait.

We stopped for lunch at the Guenther House after a site seeing tour of the historic King William District. We just had sandwiches but they were delicious and the bread was to die for, not to mention the sandwiches were huge and comparable in price to chain sandwich shops. The house, which is located on the San Antonio river, is... More

Very disappointing visit, uninteresting display and filthy unisex toilets with no toilet paper nor hand towels. Outside drink and pastry stall expensive waters eg there was an interesting advertised drink of multiple berries, only to be handed clear unflavored water? When this was queried I was shown that there were berries in the large dispensing container ? Pastries sold out... More

Every visit is quite simply enjoyable. The food is always great, and you can't deny the biscuits and gravy. Please arrive early as their website recommends, after a certain time, your breakfast plans will become lunch plans! So get up early and enjoy a quieter part of the river for breakfast!!
