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!!

The Guenther House is one of the few restaurants in town which I tell people they "must visit at least once" during their stay or visit to San Antonio. The food is great and the service is outstanding - yes, the lines can be long and the wait can be long too but this only tells you it's worth it.... More

Our waitress was pleasant. There furnishing were close to or ethnic. It took a lot longer than it should have to receive our food after we ordered. We also like the upstairs museum and gift shop.

Come for breakfast and if you have to wait for a table take the walk through. Overall it's mostly a gift shop with a little bit of history. Not worth the trip unless your coming for the restaurant.

I liked the Guenther House, I really did. I want to like it. The food is good, if not spectacular, but solid fare. But i recently had a unsatisfactory experience that is a cautionary tale: they don't take reservations, and wait times can be LONG. As others have said, it tends to get crowded. I've shown up -- with out... More
