This is a nice historical place with a restaurant and gift shop. The bathrooms were very clean here! They do have a pastry case and everything in it looked yummy, but we didn't sample anything. Unfortunately, breakfast was just ok. I ordered the special quiche that wasn't on the menu and it was WAY overcooked. Hubby got a biscuit with... More

Our Trolley operator recommended this place for breakfast. My husband and I walked one Mike from our Riverwalk hotel. The breakfast food was great. I had a waffle and my husband had the special breakfast. The price was good too. It was about $25 for the two of us. The adjoining museum and gift shop were fun too.

We visited here on the strong recommendation of friends. It is a beautiful location; seating inside or out (we sat outside), and the service is good. But we were both disappointed with our meals. My sister ordered a taco salad, which she said was just average. I ordered some kind of enchiladas with a champagne sauce that was so terribly... More

Yes, it gets crowded. Yes, you will have to wait for a table. But, you will enjoy your meal and the beautiful setting. Try to go early to beat the crowds. Make sure you take time to stroll the King William neighborhood after you eat. If you want the traditional breakfast foods, be sure to order the pancake of the... More

Stumbled on this restaurant while visiting the King William District. It has a nice outdoor patio overlooking the river and an inside dining room as well. As a part of the Pioneer Flour plant that looms overhead, you would expect the baked goods to be pretty good-and you would be correct! Fresh squeezed lemonade that was just the right amount... More

Everytime we visit San Antonio, Guenther House is on our "Must Do" list. We always have a nice meal at a reasonable price. Wonderful little shop you can browse while you wait to be seated. You can tour some of the rooms of the house and the grounds around the home also. It is an easy walk south along the... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Guenther House visit. The breakfast & baked goods are exceptional! It is a beautiful hotel/restaurant along the river. We enjoyed the atmosphere & food. If we ever visit San Antonio again, I would love to stay here. The history of the Pioneer baking flour along with the wonderful baked goods is wonderful. They also... More
