We enjoyed a delicious meal at the Guenther House. The outside seating is very nice. Food was delicious and nicely prepared. Prices are reasonable. Note that there is no liquor license.

Wonderful breakfast with a wonderful server(thanks Eric!). There is no wheelchair access to indoor restaurant or store (shame) which was a huge disappointment. Oh the money I would have spent! Food was excellent and the grounds are beautiful.

The Guenther House is not just for eating, but for an amazing experience... including a river view, small museum & store, pretty landscaping, plenty of outdoor seating to relax while there. Restaurant food is very good. We had fabulous waffles & also breakfast tacos.

My wife and I enjoyed a delightful, and very filling brunch at the Guenther House today. You have two dining options: (1) inside the historic Guenther House itself, (2) outdoors under a large pergola. The weather was ideal so we chose the outside option. My...More

Our visit to this restaurant built as an elegant home in 1859, now features a very nice menu and very close to some very interesting walking areas featuring some of the most beautiful home in San Antonio.

Our hotel recommended The Guenther House for me, a true breakfast lover. They were so right, and the history of the house was a great bonus. Our server was friendly and food was delivered promptly. I highly recommend the house blend coffee, a blend of...More

Breakfast all day. Great food upper pricing for what you get. Tourist location so plan on taking over an hour. But I say the buskers are the largest I have ever had.

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
