We were surprised to find something so very German in the middle of the San Antonio area. It's a bit off the beaten trail , but worth the visit. The American and Tex-Mex food was excellent, but did find it unusual that German food options were not on the menu. The available bakery items were terrific.The mansion itself was a... More

Considering we are rating a Restaurant not a museum or nature beauty. Restaurant itself is nothing more than an average and somewhat disappointing. Staff are extremely nice and concerned but wasn't too impressed with my Strawberry Waffles. It was a sort of small size with 2-3 not so tasty sliced strawberry and only 4 teaspoon of cream on the top.... More

We waited an hour and a half for seating and ordering was slow. It was definitely a very busy day. The menu was creative, offering a few different choices than most. The food was tasty and came to the table hot. The service was great and prices were fair enough. If you don't mind the wait, it's ahold choice.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Sunday brunch on the patio. The sausage and biscuits were the best ever. The restaurant and restored home is beautiful. We took a cinnamon roll with us and it was yummy as well. Highly recommend this place!

The Guenther House is a great place for a nice lunch outside (there are inside options as well). We had a club sandwich and a quiche muffin with fruit. Since the Guenther House is onsite to the Pioneer Flour Mill, we were also given some biscuits and small muffins, which were delicious. While you're there, be sure to stop by... More

We had a 45 minute wait to get in at lunchtime, which was fine as it gave us time to explore the museum. Very interesting house and free to enter! We sat outside and the heaters were on and pretty hot so asked if ours could be turned down. Their answer was no, sorry. ?? We all had breakfast for... More
