I would rate this restaurant Excellent if not for the hour wait to be seated. The food was excellent and we had excellent service too! Very beautiful area on the Riverwalk near the King William Historic District - Also worth a trip!

My friend took me to breakfast over a year ago when I was visiting San Antonio. When I returned home, I told my husband....the next time we are in San Antonio....we must go to breakfast! Beautiful setting, delicious food and a deep breath to start the day. We will always make a top for breakfast when we are in the... More

We were surprised to find that this historical building located on San Antonio's recently extended river walk houses an excellent restaurant. The food was very good, the portions were reasonable, and the prices were moderate. The service was excellent. This was the best find of our vacation.

Some of the the best food we had in San Antonio- and San Antonio has the BEST food. We shared a large breakfast plate that was on the special. It was way more than enough food. We also shared a blueberry waffle. It was the best waffle I ever had. The atmosphere was amazing. Loved the grounds of the mill,... More

This restaurant seems to have established a reputation as a "must visit" for tourists. We are locals who have frequented this restaurant occasionally over the years. We have become disenchanted with the restaurant since it has become so expensive. We do not mind the cost when it is justified, but this restaurant serves average food in an admittedly delightful setting... More

My husband and I love the Gunther house! The grounds are beautifully cared for and the building is gorgeous. The food is also amazing! Everything tastes homemade and fresh. Overall the restaurant is a bit small, so the wait is a little lengthy but well worth it.

No wait for a late morning breakfast. Recommended by Trip Advisor and our downtown hotel staff. FANTASTIC coffee, good waffles, but the side bacon was dry and cold. Pricey, and service was mediocre that morning.

I had the strawberry waffles and my wife had the eggs and fruit, both were excellent. We arrived at 9:30 saturday morning, expecting to wait an hour, and we were sat in only 15 minutes.

I thought the breakfast was a little pricey, with an average of $10 for waffles & eggs but it was good. Fruit came with it. The tacos were a little cheaper, $8.25 for two & at least you got a good serving of three choices. I picked potatoes, cheese, & beans. Teas were at $2.25 a piece. The reason I... More

We came here on a Sunday around 10:30am. We never sat down to eat until 11:45am. I personally wouldn't have waited that long to eat there but I was with my bosses and they wanted to eat there. We waited outside in the San Antonio heat. The grounds were beautiful, they had seating but the seats were all taken. I... More
