Best

I love this place. It is great for out of towners or just for a nice brunch for locals. The food is wonderful and prices are reasonable considering the ambiance/history. Highly...

Worst

I was surprised that the food wasn't better. I really wanted to love this place. Went twice, wasn't impressed. Cool location.

Editorial review from Citysearch 8/23/2012

Lovely atmosphere, the taco soup is addictive and if you don't have room for dessert do yourself a favor and take it to-go. Everything is scratch made and delicious. more

Great location. Breakfast decent but Looong waits 12/2/2011

Quaint restaurant on property of Pioneer Flour Mill. Best biscuits in town! Longs waits for breakfast are a bit frustrating I love to bring out of town guests here for breakfast - during the week. Too busy on weekends more

Not on my 10 Best List! 11/16/2010

I dragged my boyfriend here for breakfast this morning, based on the 10best recommendation for breakfast. It was a cool house to visit, but there is truly no reason to eat there. $6 bought me plain biscuits and bland gravy. $7 bought my boyfriend one waffle (small size), which was sorta good. The soda and tea were strange--the soda tasted like it had no carbonation, despite being in a can. The tea was odd-tasting--bland to say the least. Marketed as 'iced' but there was mint or something in it. Didn't help the taste any! The best part about this restaurant is actually the gift shop. more

Great little place in the King William area 7/25/2008

Looking for breakfast, brunch or lunch in the historic King William district? This is the place for you and your guest. The restaurant is located in the Poineer Mill Wing by the San Antonio River. The place is small, cute, it has an old time feel and cozy. The menu is limited, not a huge selection but what they have is scrumptious. The biscuit and gravy is huge, full of flavor, light and fluffy. The smoked applewood bacon is heaven: crispy, not salty and thick. The waffle and pancakes: yum. The house special coffee is delicious. Look to the blackboard at the door for the daily special. Get there early or be patient. As I said the place is small waiting time can be 30 - 45 minutes. They will hand you a pager for your wait, so you can spend this time browsing the muesum, shop or walking by the river watching the ducks. If the weather is permitting you can choose to eat out in the patio, it is great on a nice cool morning eating your breakfast watching the humming birds zoom by. The staff is friendly, the food served hot and your coffee cup is always filled. Visitors visting the King William area should finish their tour by having brunch here. Pros: Beautiful scenery, good food, friendly staff, parking more

overall a great place to go... 6/9/2008

The Guenther House has a great ambiance, great long time servers, and never changing recipes. Pros: great food,great servers and atmosphere Cons: parking more

Wonderful food... Ridiculous lines!! 5/10/2008

We ended up taking the food to-go because the wait was an hour and 45 minutes! We decided to take the food across the street to a park bench. When we go back, we'll probably do that again. As for the food, it was yummy. The Bacon was really thick, and the Waffle with fresh cream and fresh berries was gone in seconds. If you have plenty of time on your hands... dine in. If not? Get it to-go! more

This place has the best breakfast in San Antonio and is not to be missed! 4/6/2008

Even though it is a bit tricky to get to, this place has so much history in one place and the food was wonderful. The service went well beyond expectations and the prices where reasonable. Week days are just as busy as the weekend, so go early, before 9:am. We will be back! Pros: Wonderful food and service Cons: hard to find more

For great home cooking, beats Cracker Barrel any day! 2/16/2008

Upon arrival we were told it might be a 35 minute wait. We went upstairs to walk around the ""museum"". There are only a few rooms available for viewing but it is a nice time-slice of the early 1900's. We only waited about 15 minutes before be seated. We ate breakfast in the kitchen area. It was very homey and warm. The biscuits are HUGE! The rest of the food was excellent and in large portions. The service was timely and unobtrusive. This a great place to have breakfast on a Satuday or Sunday morning. The lunch menu looks just as invitin and we plan to come back soon to try it out. Pros: Excellent food, Service, Value for the $$$ Cons: Museum more

Lousy service 11/29/2007

The food is good but the service has alot to be desired..............don't go there if you only have an hour for lunch, you'll be cuttin' it real close! The atmosphere is nice but too small, too crowded. Pros: Great food Cons: Service is SLOW! more

Great American Comfort Food 9/19/2006

This is a great place for a cozy breakfast or lunch. Guenther House has the best Enchilada Soup and Chicken Salads. Pros: Incredible Location Cons: Service and waiting time more

Delicious food in a chaming setting 9/9/2006

Eating at the Guenther House is like stepping into another time and place! The grounds are well-manicured and landscaped and the inside is equally pretty. Be sure to explore upstairs and stop in at the gift shop. Pros: Quaint ambience & alluring bakery display Cons: Gets very busy more
