And we found them. Sitting outside in the cool of a San Antonio day enjoying the morning. As the waffles, eggs and fried potatoes arrived. They went above and beyond as even a smiley face was placed on chocolate chip pancakes for the little one. And in return they received empty plates... For a job well done!

This place is historical and very nice service. I will say each time I have gone, there has been a line so if waiting is not your thing, you might try another location. Just sayin...however, it is worth the wait. The have a room with a mini-museum. It is near the riverwalk and you can see the river there.

A must eat place for sSAT history. Look through You'll need the walkthe house after you have eaten bscuits and waffles. Eat outside to enjoy the full experience but do go inside to shop and drool over the bakery counter. STicky buns that you'd kill for.

Service not the best, but the ambiance makes up for it. Pancakes and breakfast are delicious- there are better breakfast places in town but none have the view or feel of this place!

I don't know why people gave this place a good rating on its food. Ii was NOT worth the hour wait! The eggs were rubbery, pancakes were dense and dry and the biscuits left lots to be desired. That being said, the service was very good. The setting was beautiful and historic. Worth checking out this part of San Antonio.... More

The Gunther House has awesome breakfast. It is a beautiful place with beautiful grounds that are right close to the river. The outside is also nice, they have misters and fans blowing to put away the heat. Breakfast is great, big flakey biscuits, awesome cinnamon rolls, and fluffy waffles. The only downside if any is the service was a bit... More

Sat outside under a large canopy with cool miosters, and it was delightful despite 95' reps. Chicken salad is chunky and very tasty. My server recommended it on a toasted grain bun with provolone, and I said OK. Turned out to be large and tasty. Ranch dressing to dip in was awesome - not sure if made there, but its... More

We decided to wait until Monday to have breakfast here because the wait on the weekend was very long. The grounds of the Guenther House are beautiful...if the weather permits, sit out on the patio and enjoy the surroundings. I ordered the strawberry waffle which was fluffy, sweet and perfectly cooked. The boys ordered the Pioneer Breakfast which was two... More

We had to wait 60 minutes to get a table, but it was well worth the wait! We got the Pioneer Platter, and it was amazing. Eric made certain that our glasses got empty. A must try if you are ever in San Antonio.
