I regret not buying the waffle mix in the gift shop.

We walked by and rthere was this house that looked like a place to tour below the big Pioneer flour mill building. Great find. Probably the most expensive waffle I have ever bought but, by far THE BEST. I did not want to ruin it with syrup. And then topped it off with carrot cake. Gissel took... read more

While touring the historic homes of San Antonio, we ran across the Guenther House for lunch and were very happy we did. We ate outside in a covered area and ordered sandwiches. They were delicious. Besides there main courses, they are well known for their pastries.

We came here based on the reviews on Yelp for brunch on Sunday, April 19th. The wait time was 1 hour and 20 minutes which is to be expected in this type of establishment. The time passed very quickly since we had so much to see with the beautiful architecture and grounds for this restaurant. Once called; we were seated... More

We enjoyed eating breakfast outside on the patio. We enjoyed the breakfast, but the biscuits and gravy weren't our favorite there.

Stopped in for a quick breakfast. Service was excellent. We ordered the Guenther's Platter and the Breakfast Taco. Both were very good and loved the fresh fruit. The have both inside and outside eating close to the river walk. Also have a nice gift shop upstairs. Overall a great place to dine.

Found Guenther House here in TripAdvisor and had breakfast there today. In a great historic part of the city. Beautiful restaurant area, great service by a new waiter, Oscar. Food was hot and good. Ordered the breakfast tacos, and buttermilk pancakes. House coffee with cinnamon was full of flavor and always kept hot by the numerous servers who came by... More

Following our walking tour of the King William Neighborhood, we stopped for lunch at The Guenther House. Compared to the hectic atmosphere of the Riverwalk, this was a wonderful respite. The restaurant has a cottage feel and is very pleasant. We had the chicken salad plate and the meal loaf special. Both were excellent. The waitress was helpful, attentive, and... More
