We stopped for breakfast since it was suggested as best place to eat breakfast in San Antonio. This place has a nice history, and 'ok' food. IMO, nothing special, especially for the price. We did enjoy a walk in the area & riverwalk. I had...More

I had breakfast here midmorning during the week. Strawberry waffle with an egg and sausage on the side along with coffee. Food was excellent though the coffee could be stronger. Service was very attentive. Not cheap but reasonably priced. Unique atmosphere and in an interesting...More

We were in San Antonio and decided to have brunch at The Guenther House. The wait time was long, but there was plenty to do and see while waiting for a table. After you eat, there is an entrance to the River Walk just across...More

I wouldn't go there for breakfast or other meal--over-rated--average food. Parking nightmare. I do however like the history of the home/family. And, it's close to the Blue Star complex!

We had a great family breakfast at the Guenther house, then shopped toured the home and grounds, down by the riverwalk.

Expect long wait times for breakfast paired with unbelievably mild food. The only character to be found in this eatery is with the location.

Food was excellent especially the breakfast platters and the waffles. Thank you Martin for the fantastic service. I have to mention the House coffee - WoW! Neat setting, cool museum!

Beautiful historic house transformed into gormet restaurant. We had breakfast and I have never had a beter one. If you don't have room for the cinnamon rolls then buy some to-go.

I took my wife for breakfast on a Sunday to the Guenther House. There was a short wait and there was a coffee stand outside for customers while they waited. We were seated outside in the Patio, the waiter was very virtuous and brought us...More

I'm sorry, I'm really not sure. Neither of us are on a gluten free and I didn't really pay attention.

There is a free parking lot. Signage is small for the lot and you can't really see the house from the lot. (The lot is in back of the mill warehouse). Look at satellite view on Google maps and it is very clear. Beautiful... More

I don't know for sure. I would guess they don't inside as the seating is rather confined. My December 2014 trip is the first time I've eaten outside, and I didn't see any dogs, but that doesn't mean they don't allow dogs. If... More
