try that waffle!

We had the waffle (and I'm a pancake lover, but yummy yummy waffle) and the burrito and LOVE them both. The waffle was light and fluffy, the burrito was perfectly seasoned. Even though it was August we sat outside and found it perfect. The house coffee is very tasty. We would recommend and we will... read more

Every time we visited San Antonio, we must visit Guenther house for break fast. During the warm season, I highly recommend you eat outside. I always ordered Waffle with strawberry. Since Pioneer Flour factory opened this restaurant, you should order waffle or pancakes. They were delicious ! The place is always busy, so be prepared for waiting time between 30-1... More

Set in a historical house in the King William neighborhood. This restaurant is a beautiful place. The food is quite good and plentiful. The bread products are made with flour milled right there at the Pioneer Flour Mill, which shares the grounds. Museum setting upstairs showing furnishings, china and art. There is a very nice gift shop with lots of... More

I had a vegetarian portabella sandwhich while at the Guenther House. It was good. The wait was a bit lengthy and the staff seemed somewhat confused on how to direct customers but overall the experience was pleasant.

They don't take reservations so get there early. Even then, you should be prepared to wait. I was lucky enough to sit outside, where we could enjoy some of the view of the river walk and the lawn. It was lovely and the food was great. I had the waffle and ate every last bite. I would easily go back... More

we got there around 1pm and there was a wait of about 10mins. We explored the Guenther House and it is a beautiful building with stain glass through out the house. It was hot, so we chose to eat in the air conditioning. GREAT SERVICE AND FOOD Go!! I went because of the reviews and they are spot on.........If I... More

We went here for brunch and we're not disappointed. The food was nothing out of the ordinary, but the outdoor setting was nice. We will likely return again before leaving San Antonio. Service was a little slow considering they were not that busy. It wasn't terrible, but not worthy of a 5 star rating.

Guenther House is a wonderful place to eat breakfast. The menu is simple, and the prices are reasonable. However, the other reviews here rave about the food. While it's certainly good food, it's not unique or elevated. The tortillas may come from the factory next door, but they're still used to make somewhat ordinary breakfast tacos. The waffle mix may...

Whenever we are in San Antonio weave to visit The Guenther House for breakfast! The waffles are amazing, as are the biscuits! And even if you are stuffed to the gills as we usually are, you have to get a cinnamon roll to go. Those rolls are huge, but oh so yummy! Make sure this place is on your 'must... More

Found the Gunther house very disappointing It was in nice sitting, but service and food on our visit where poor, and I felt over priced , if it wants to be a upmarket resterant at breakfast it needs to be that which means better service,
