I ordered the GUENTHER’S FAVORITE BREAKFAST PLATTE, it was done very well but I did not like the gravy or the biscuits. The biscuits are so thick they're more like an uncut loaf of bread. I still rated this place high and they deserve it and the rating should not be based on my particular tastes etc. I would recommend... More

If your looking for good place for breakfast in the morning & your downtown. Then you gotta go to The Gunther Restaurant, they got the best Belgium waffles & omelettes in town with a hot cup of coffee & you'll be ready to start the day.

Gorgeous scenery! Great outside area, good for parties, elegant. Wait is always long, go early. They do give free coffee and water while waiting. Sweet waffles are delightful, but I wouldn't get them every time. There breakfast plate on the outside menu is a very good selection. Try the lemonade, it's amazing!

Delicious baked goods and meals. With enjoyable weather it is fun to dine on the Patio. It can get crowded so plan to come early. It has a gift shop. It is right on The Riverwalk. At Christmas has an elaborate Gingerbread house and is festive!

Food was really good. All the kids were quiet during meal meaning that they enjoyed their meal too (which is sometimes hard to sync). Service was good. We waited about 35 minutes. Wait area has plenty of shade and places to sit. Overall good experience.

There is a long wait...a loooong wait. The first day we tried to go the wait was almost 2 hours, so we decided to come back the next day. Our 2nd wait was about 35-40 minutes, but man was it worth it. My eggs were cooked perfect. The biscuits were outstanding, and the gravy was perfect, and I man perfect.... More

The place is very nice, staff is very welcoming. But all the breakfast is about bacon, sausage, spicy potato and eggs. If you don't like this- there is nothing to eat We asked for a salad-they have only lettuce

We arrived at 10am and the place was packed! The hostess said the wait was 90 minutes and invited us to tour the house and visit the bakery "in case you get hungry." Because of all the positive reviews and because a "wait time" is usually overestimated we decided to wait it out in the heat. There was complimentary ice... More

I am not a morning person but we were seated in a beautiful room on the equally beautiful property we had the most perfect breakfast and started the day with a smile.
