It appears to be a very nice and good place to eat or cater an event. As a place to visit as a museum, it was not high on my list of favorites. It is well kept and has an extensive shop to purchase all things food related; from soup to nuts and all things utensils.

Very interesting area the Guenther house is in. The small family history room before the gift shop shows their history of being the flour mill industrialists. The gift shop had excellent brewed free coffee and quality souvenirs. The flour made great pancakes at home. Worth seeing. They have a restaurant but alas, family member was dieting and in no mood...

Located in the historic King William District of town, adjacent to the Pioneer Flour Mill facility, the Guenther House has some of the best American breakfast in town. Pancakes, Waffles, biscuits, pastries and even their sausage gravy are all made from scratch using the Pioneer Flour products. It's a first come, first serve locale, so be sure and plan on... More

We love coming here for breakfast. Beautiful Victorian house by the extended Riverwalk in the historic King William district. Best sausage gravy and biscuits in San Antonio. Tour the house after eating and a neat little gift shop is a floor above.

We ate breakfast here on Sunday, couldn't get in on Saturday. Was way too busy! Delicious food, with large enough portions. Pioneer brand food.

We got there at 7:30 and had a choice of sitting, Outside or Inside. We sat outside in the covered patio,with misters going. By 8:30 there was a wait list. They don't take reservation. Breakfast was reasonably priced. Wait staff was attentive. Afterwards we toured the Guenther house. Gift shop upstairs full of lovely things to buy.

Historic German mansion of the man that founded the Pioneer Flour Mill (the Guenther family). Everything made in the area at the time was corn flour. Mr. Guenther introduced wheat flour. Very nice outdoor brunch and indoor restaurant on ground floor, second floor museum and a gift shop offering their Pioneer Flour Mill pancake mixes, et all, to take home... More

Worth a quick look if you are inclined to visit the King William District. Amazing example of period architecture. Also an interesting art district. We used the hop on/off city bus to visit. It was hot so take water.
