We ate here 25 years ago and enjoyed the experience again on our recent trip to San Antonio. If you are staying on the Riverwalk, you can walk south of the main district to reach this place. The King William streets are a nice place...More

Brunch and history..two of the things we love, in one place. We thought we were lost when got there. The house sits by the RiverWalk on a residential area near downtown. Waited 45min for our table, food wise, we loved our sausage and the broccoli...More

Took a walk from the riverwalk to this restaurant. So glad we did. 45 minute wait was worth it. They give you a pager. Take a walk across the street on King Williams street. Take a stroll and see all the large stately homes while...More

The biggest, tastiest, moist, succulent Cinnamon Rolls I've ever tasted! Better than Cinnabon! We ate here twice. The biscuits are so soft and delicate. The staff are friendly and service is excellent.

It's a must try. Enjoyed our meal and the site. The manager on the day we went, was not very personable and made us feel a bit unwelcomed but our waiter was very good along with the food.

The house is the best part of this restaurant. It has loads of charm, a small museum, a gift shop, and drinks and snacks for those enduring the one-hour plus wait. The food and service were excellent breakfast fare, although there were other choices. The...More

Read other reviews on trip advisor and decided to try something unique to the area. We were very pleased! Biscuits and gravy were outstanding! Fresh fruit plate was very fresh and well picked fruit...watermelon, pineapple, grapes, oranges and bananas. The sweet cream pancakes were outstanding,...More

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
