My wife always does a great job of researching places. We really enjoyed our brunch. The waffles were great. We recommend the enchiladas.

Had long heard of the Guenther as a great place to visit and dine. The brunch met and exceeded what we heard. Delicious pancakes, eggs, ham, and fruit for me; others selections were tops as well! Great atmosphere and service!

This is a beautiful historical house in a great location. We went there for breakfast on a Saturday. I had the waffle platter which comes with bacon or sausage. This was the best waffle ever. I usually like crispy waffles best, but no, this was...More

First off this is a great location! The historic location just sets the right mood for a great breakfast, kinda like grandma's house. It does take forever to be seated because it appears to be quite popular for great reason. The good thing is that...More

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
