Great food and service.

I lunch here a couple of weeks before christmas, i found the meals to be reasonably portioned and tasty. I had the Chicken pot pie and ate every last crumb. I'd definitely return.

Overrated and overpriced and disappointing. We were seated at a pedestel table. I glanced down to place a bag on the floor and saw piles of dust peeking out from under the pedestel base. I would have walked out but one of the family was really, really looking forward to eating here.I kept the bag on my lap. Pancakes and... More

We stopped in for breakfast and were pleasantly surprised. Small menu but great food. You have to try the biscuits....better than grandma's. The house has a great history to tell of San Antonio and the King Williams District. You should take the time to walk by the San Antonio river and the neighborhood. Beautiful.

Skip the hotel restaurant and take the lovely morning stroll through the historic King William District! Take the River Walk back for the complete circuit. As far as the restaurant, the menu is very small but everything our party ordered was very good. I had the tallest biscuits ever baked-but this is Texas! My wife enjoyed a breakfast taco and...

Had out of town relatives that had never been to Texas and before they got on the road to head further south, my sister and I took them to Guenther House. You should know that Sundays are busy there. They serve breakfast from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. We arrived at 10:00 a.m. and they were doing a booming business.... More

They serve breakfast all day. Lunch items also available. Wonderful fluffy biscuits, herb infused potatoes, tasty bacon, sausage and eggs! They even had these lovely miniature chocolate chip muffins for appetizers. Can sit out or in. Neat gift shop and house to browse while waiting. Outstanding food and service, will definitely return!

We went for breakfast, we should have made a reservation. We could eat outside but it was a little cold so we waited about 40 minutes to be seated indoors. (kind of a small space) We toured the home and were very impressed with the gingerbread house upstairs, a replica of the Guenther House and very detailed. Our service once... More

Yum. From the moment we walked through the door, this amazing scent of pancakes and waffles pulled us down the stairs and around the corners to a lovely dining area. The blackberry preserves are not to be missed and the biscuits are divine. And I like good biscuits. Fluffy and hot, paired with the best gravy I have ever eaten,... More

My son was a member of the U.S. Army All-American Marching Band, so we were in San Antonio over New Year's. The weather was chilly and wet. We ended up eating outside in the enclosed tent; heaters and blankets were provided which was a nice touch. We didn't need them but saw others using them. The food was delicious and... More
