Food was great. Everyone behind the counter was very friendly. Try the macaroni and cheese and their warm chocolate chip cookies. Great spot for conversation.

Gunther's is a great spot for food you can't find anywhere else. British, German and Irish food. Their classic corn beef and hash for breakfast is a heaping mound of potatoes onions, corn beef and a couple's of eggs however you want them. Give it a try I like this place better than Bills! I regret waiting so long to try it.

This place is a landmark. But it just feels old and the patrons are a bit on the elder side as well. The food is definitely a 2 to 3.

I have not actually had food here other than the chocolate cookies but the cookies here are THE BEST I have ever had!  I buy them for clients all the time and they love them.  You can put them in the refrigerator or freezer and have them later.. as good as the day you buy them!

We stopped in yesterday for lunch.  There is a lot to choose from, and the staff is friendly and glad to assist.We chose the Ruben ($14.95), a side of potato salad, and two ice teas.The potato salad was hearty but had a vinegar tartness to it.The Ruben was packed with meat that was juicy, tender, and had perhaps a tad of a smoked fla ... read more

You want to eat the best cookie in all of South Bay? Either go to icing on the cake in Los Gatos or go to Gunther's. Cookie is so damn good. Only one type they sell. The chocolate chip cookie. It's like 1300 calories of pure diabetes. It's unlike any cookie you've ever had. Trust me.

I've always really liked Gunther's but my last visit left a bad taste in my mouth (figuratively). I've been going there for years.

Most amazing customer service I have experienced in San Jose. Delicious Rueben and believe it or not the Best clam chowder in town! The Chocolate chip cookies are insane!!!

Service may not be the most on-point, and prices are definitely on the high side -- but the latter definitely seems to be made up by the quality of the food.

So this is the kind of place that your grand parents eat. The style and food us catered to that generation. It may be the best breakfast in town but only for the 75+ age group. The price they charged us for breakfast ~$36 for two,  was way too much. The service was mediocre. The coffee was meh.

Came here on a Saturday to try their Rueben sandwich.  I would call this one a "better than average" Rueben.  The flavor of the meat did not knock me off my seat (bad rhyme), but it was pretty decent.  But if/when I return I think I might try something else.

In my opinion, these are by far the best chocolate chip cookies in the Bay Area! I bought their cookies for a catering event recently. Gunther's has mastered the art of baking them so they are firm on the outside, but soft and chewy on the inside, almost tasting a little like cookie dough in the center. They're not cheap, but they're ... read more

A cute little neighborhood gem hidden away. The food is generally pretty good--especially for breakfast-- and the service is exceptional. They tend to cater to a more local crowd and for breakfast it's a step up from Denny's. And I do like a Grand Slam. We like Gunther's for all those reasons but also because it's so convenient to wh ... read more
