We stayed in San Antonio for the Christmas Holiday. We walked through the quaint King William district where the old beautiful houses were nicely decorated and ended up at the Guenther House, where there is a path right down to the riverwalk back to town. This is the oldest family owned flour mill to be in operation by the same... More

A former mansion now turned into a museum/restaurant. Definitely have a meal out back on the patio under the tent. The food is out of this world and so much of it. Not to mention the value, a great deal. Everything made fresh on site and don't leave without a pastry to take home. Go inside and check out the... More

Great food, lovely atmosphere, nice history. The food at Guenther House is wonderful! Their breakfast special will really fill you up. Not on the menu, but they usually tell you about it. If not, just ask. Pastries to take home - a must!

A very interesting place to visit and the food and sights were great. We sat outside and enjoyed ourselves. Very peaceful.

I started taking my Great Nephew to the Guenther House for our "special" Christmas Vacation Breakfast when he was a wee 8 year old. He's 13 this year and asked the other day if we were still going this year. He delights in the huge, delicious waffles topped with strawberries and the hot chocolate with tons of whipped cream. Even... More

Beautiful historic home set right along the river. Had lunch in the outside pavilion and it was just perfect. Such great food, had to purchase lots of their mixes to bring home and try. Hope their half as good.

We went here for breakfast, and the wait was just long enough for us to look at the grounds outside. They were wonderful! We had a good breakfast by the restaurant fireplace. The best part, you can peruse the home while waiting on your breakfast to be made. A nice 1 1/2 hours to spend.

I ordered off the lunch menu - that was a mistake.. I ordered the open faced London sandwich or something and it wasn't that great. My friend ordered the quiche off the breakfast menu and it was amazing.

We stopped here on a Sunday morning, but the wait was 1 ½ hours. Instead of waiting, we returned on Monday morning when we were able to immediately get a table. They did not have a children's menu, so we had to figure out what to get for our 2 year old granddaughter. I wanted a basic egg and meat... More

What a wonderful place for breakfast! I cannot believe the flaky mile high biscuits! I have never had better biscuits, and cannot get my own to match up! Breakfast with a side of the area history. Doesn't get much better than that.
