First off, I want to say that Luiz was an excellent employee with fantastic customer service that really made the experience great today.

Long drive worthwhile for the Chopped Liver sandwich (unfortunately there were no onion rolls). Dr Browns Diet Black Cherry soda was a tasty remembrance from NY. Unfortunately, the Potato Knish was not very good. Small pastry shell was dry & tasteless. Potato inside was good, nothing special though. Service was somewhat slow. Check w ... read more

Gunther's is a destination for me anytime I drive "over the hill" from Santa Cruz on Highway 17. As a native New Yorker who craves a great corned beef on rye, Gunther's totally satisfies. Nice staff. I would like to try some of their other menu items but the corned beef takes precedence. I wish they stayed open past 3 on Saturdays. L ... read more

Stopped in to Gunthers for the first time. A small and cozy restaurant. We were greeted by a friendly staff. We were given a sample of the pastrami and reuben to taste along with some Mac and cheese.

I ordered from Doordash: the Jaegerschnitzel with veggies & coleslaw and meatloaf sandwich with gravy. The Jaegerschnitzel was quite tasty and the portion large. The veggies were plain. I didn't like the coleslaw so much, it was vinegary with no trace of sweetness. My husband loved the meatball sandwich & gravy!

As some other people have noted, the limited hours can be frustrating, because honestly the quality of food is so good that it baffles me that they can't get enough business to thrive without even needing to cater.

It's always good quality, and the people are very friendly and they have a great menu, something for everyone. I like the cabbage rolls but don't know what day. However. They are very expensive. I'll go if I'm hungry and in the neighborhood. You can get a steak dinner elsewhere for the price of a soup and sandwich.

Sold three stars. It's decent. But way overpriced. I got the Ruben. On DoorDash it's priced at like $18. That's pretty steep for a sammich in my opinion. It's a combo of corned beef and pastrami so I went with it. I got it on a roll so it wouldn't be overly soggy on the drive to me. It was ok. Solid taste. But the meat was super dry.
