I can't tell you how many times I have dined at the Guenther House, either inside next to the kitchen, outside on their patio or upstairs at an event and have always had terrific food, prompt and friendly service. My latest experience with the server was weird and disappointing! Arrived at 10am on a Friday to wait nearly 30 minutes... More

We were there on a Monday AM, about 8:45. We chose to sit outside for a great breakfast,they have about 10-14 tables on the patio. About 5 minutes after we were seated, the 3 tables that were originally seated, became a full house of all tables full and a waiting line. Some opted to eat inside, but it was such... More

Went along for breakfast on a Sunday morning which became brunch after waiting for about 90mins. Wait was in a nice location in the sunshine and was worth it for the pancakes when we got them. Only drawback is the fact they should have been more upfront about waiting times.

Guenther's is a must place to eat while in San Antonio. We arrived about 12:30 on Sunday after church and had a wait of over an hour to be seated. The wait went by quickly as we toured the house, the grounds, the nearby river walk, and the gift shop. The rooms of the house open to the public are... More

My husband and I just had our anniversary breakfast here this morning. Our experience was absolutely amazing. The service was excellent and the grounds were beautiful. It is a $7 cab ride from downtown San Antonio, however we walked back on the riverwalk trail and it was very scenic. Overall, we had a great experience. P.S. The gift shop was... More

Three of us ate here for lunch. The salad with warm chicken breast was very good and my friend enjoyed the waffles with whipped cream and strawberries. I would go back.

What a fabulous find, but wow, it is hard to find! This is a combo restaurant in an old house that also serves as a museum and gift shop. There are grounds to stroll. Overall, the experience is quite welcoming and unique. But be forewarned: the restaurant is hard to find. We followed some people into the "main entrance." From... More

This is a wonderful restaurant for visitors. It's in an old house that can be toured for free. The food is just typically b'fast food but the atmosphere is great. They have lunch as well but I've never eaten that food. Be sure to come early because the lines become atrocious after an hour or so of opening. However if... More

My wife and I come here for Saturday or Sunday Breakfast. The waffles are to die for and the rest of the menu will leave you completely satisfied. The portions are large-so come hungry. You can eat inside or out, but I recommend eating outside-less crowded. It is important to come early-this is a very popular place. They do not... More
