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

So I can't write to the restaurant, which might be lovely, but if you're looking for a historic home visit, skip the Guenther House. It's a restaurant with a gift shop that happen to reside in a previous historic home. And it's CROWDED. Which probably means the restaurant is decent, but, as an 'attraction' per say, I can't recommend it.

We stopped by to pick up a couple of their Raspberry Chipotle Sauce (a unique item that we like) at the gift shop and had a brief tour around the house, However, there isn't really that much to see and there isn't much to do if you are not eating in the restaurant. Nice location on the river.

Took a few family members here when they were in town awhile back. I love taking people here because parking is easy, the grounds are beautiful. There's lots of history, but, you can take a free tour the house in five minutes or take an hour, it's up to you. They have a small, but nice gift whop with some... More

A great place for a gourmet style breafast. However, it is not cheap. The grounds and the home are nice and well maintained. They have a gift shop. I believe this place is popular for breakfast even with the locals so it is least busy during the week.

I absolutely love the service, food, and mini-museum. Great place but at times has lines to get in. Food is freshly made and there is a bakery too. Near the San Antonio River, so view is beautiful.

This is the second time we visit the Guenther House while staying in San Antonio and it will become one of these must-do things for us. The breakfast is just great! Tip: Come early to beat the crowd and check out the rest of the house while you are here.

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
