We waited an hour and a half to be seated, by then we were starving and not only did our order take forever to come, they got it wrong! The potatoes were chewy and dried out and the biscuits were cold. We asked to speak to the manager who never came so we left and called him, we had to... More

Excellent breakfast selection. The history of the building is interesting too. They offer lunch as well as breakfast at resonance prices and the portions a are definenetly filling. New top trip advisor so entering my past experiences around areas and I spend a lot of time in San Antonio because of buisiness. Took my family here and did not disappoint.

My daughter and I had Saturday brunch here and it was fabulous. The wait time was about an hour, but we strolled down the Riverwalk and enjoyed the grounds. They had couches and coffee or water set out while you waited. Portions were a good size and prices were good. The peach ginger iced tea was delicious. Service was great... More

We made it a point to go to The Guenther House to eat breakfast when in San Antonio recently. We ate breakfast there several years ago and loved it then. I am happy to report that it is still my favorite breakfast in the city. Everything was great. I love the Pioneer Mill and its history and the ambiance in... More

Because of my friend's recommendation, we took uber to have breakfast here. We all ordered their breakfast items. The food quality was good, but not memorable. I would only come back to this place if I would like to be served well again.

I had one of my personal favorites, quiche, along with fruit, and I ordered the cinnamon roll. I took the cinnamon roll home and ate it overt the next three days! My husband and sister ordered eggs and biscuits, and both were very satisfied with their meals. The only thing I found to be strange was the lack of handicap... More

Giant biscuits, eggs cooked perfectly, crisp bacon! Beautiful surrounds, great service. Definitely on the "Be Back" list.

It had been about 10 years since we were last in San Antonio and wanted to have brunch at The Guenther House again. We have eaten there about 5 times before and always found it to be good. We passed up a free breakfast at our hotel to be able to have brunch at The Guenther House. My wife and... More

The waffle was divine. The biscuits and gravy rival any others I've had. Their house coffee was such a nice different flavor, I recommend getting it. Even though it was quite chilly outside they had the heaters and brought down the coverings and had blankets on each chair to keep warm. I would absolutely go back!

My partner and I visited The Guenther House for breakfast one Sunday morning last month and it was just fantastic. The staff, the atmosphere, where they are located and most of all...the food was delicious. Lots of carbs though but well worth it. I can't wait to visit again and bring friends and family.
