If you're counting carbs, let your a cheat meal be at the Guenther House. They do carbs and do they them really deliciously. Biscuits and gravy, waffles, cinnamon rolls, eggs, and bacon were all so good. Besides the food, getting to learn a little bit about a Texas company and family was interesting. Neat little giftshop as well.

We were unimpressed with this breakfast stop. And that says nothing of the hour wait. It's flour is milled in-house, right? Then why were the biscuits and gravy average? Poor service too, but I excuse that. It was busy. We were just not impressed at all. Nothing special to eat here.

Visited the Guenther House for breakfast before a long walk along the river to Mission Concepcion and San Juan. We were advised it would be a 30 minute wait but was closer to 40 minutes. The place was packed and we took the first available seats inside. Service was spotty. Ordered the platter with a biscuit, gravy, eggs, bacon, sausage,... More

I love the setting and neighborhood that the Guenther house is located in. After an hour and 20 minute wait, we finally could eat our breakfast. The food was not any better than your average breakfast joint. Eggs tasted like they were out of a carton and my biscuit was so-so. Service also was not great. If you like to... More

Since I'm a pretty big guy, I like to order big meals, and when I first saw the menu for this place, I thought the food was sparse. I was wrong. I ordered the 1851 Platter and it was very filling! It had the softest, non-crumbly biscuit I had ever tasted. The bacon was real, manly bacon. The sausage patty... More

This is a very nice and historic restaurant! A lot of history comes from this restaurant which shows in the food which was amazing. The restaurant sits off the river so it is nice and quiet. On the weekends the wait is normally between 45 minutes to an hour and a half so prepare yourself at least an hour early... More

This is a neat place, and the food is very good. However, I will not go back due to the wait time. We waited an hour and 45 minutes for our table. I expected an hour, which I was ok with because it sounded like you could occupy your time by browsing through a shop, and a museum type house.... More

What a surprise to have found this place! It was half museum half restaurant with a beautiful patio that you can enjoy your brunch on. We ended up getting a very generous portion of the biscuits and gravy and the special of the day -- meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and a salad. After our lunch we walked off our meal by... More
