Was looking very forward to eating here after reading all the positive reviews. The food was good and was reasonably priced. Unfortunately we had a waitress who must have been having a bad day. She wasn't friendly and was slow to respond with requests. After we had finished eating, I witnessed her arguing very loudly with another waiter. Would be... More

I found this place on yelp by looking up breakfast places along the river walk. I eventually made my way here - and it was well worth the wait. The Breakfast platter (eggs, biscuits and gravy, bacon, and potatoes) is pretty good and quaint. What really blew me away was how GOOD the waffle of the day was! I have... More

Great ambiance A historical house with beautiful decorations the residents found around the world. Food was very good but nothing you couldn't find most places. Baked goods were the best. Got a pecan sticky bun that was delicious and huge for $3.50.

This place is an old house made into a restaurant next to a flour mill. The food was amazing and the service was good.

We called ahead to hear the wait time, & a man told us 25 minutes. We got there & waited about an hour. We asked during our wait, how much longer? I think they forgot about us, because we were seated next (& were pretty much the only ones left). It was very, very noisy. Our waitress could have been... More

We walked to this restaurant twice during our 5 day stay. The website tells you all about it. The biscuits and gravy are heavenly, the pancakes are the best I've ever had. We absolutely loved it here.

We loved visiting the Guenther House! We had to wait about 45 minutes on a Thursday mid-morning, but the time was easily passed exploring the lovely house and museum, looking in the fun and quirky store, and lounging on the outdoor couches with complimentary water and coffee. We sat down inside - it was cool because it was an original... More

Went here about 9:00 on Saturday. About a 20 minute wait. Easy to pass the time walking around the beautiful old house. Breakfast was very good and a great value. Bought a cinnamon roll to take home. It was such a wonderful snack later in the day. Yum!! Staff was great.

I’ve dined here twice—once the service was excellent, once it was terrible. Both visits were during lunch hour and about the same business. I sat outside on the second trip though and there was only ONE waitress for about 9 tables. So it’s no wonder it took 45 minutes for my plate of eggs and bacon to come out. Which... More

One of the 3 best meals we had. In fact, we dined there twice. The coffee is wonderful. I imagine everything on the menu is good. Worth the walk.
