We stopped by late on Sunday morning and the place was packed with an hour and a half wait - typical for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday I was told. We elected not to stay - thankfully, because it started to rain shortly after - but...More

Really nice server but low low quality food. I had the taco salad. The shredded cheese was orange (as in orange food coloring added to something that wasn’t cheese). Also, too many flies for our comfort zone.

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.

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
