Looking to try something different for a change, we stopped in at Gunther's. When you walk in, you quickly realize that they have a huge menu. "On the wall" they also have a big selection of bottled sodas, a soda dispenser and lots of yummy looking desserts. The offer take out, bar seating and dining tables.

Though not a very large restaurant, it is very cute, organized and clean. Fantastic servers, attaintive and friendly. She was very thoughtful and considerate. The pastrami and Reuben sandwiches were excellent with lots of meat, fresh bread. The split pea soup was good, maybe a bit too salty. Deserts were good too. Love these type ... read more

I have been driving past Gunther's for the 20 years I have lived in the Bay Area, and after reading all the wonderful Yelp reviews about it, I knew I had to try it.I was originally hoping to go to Sunday breakfast there, but that is the one day they are closed, so I went yesterday/Saturday around 10 am. As soon as I arrived I was gre ... read more

***FYI, they close at 8pm, not 9pm on Fridays! (Despite hours listed on Yelp)***Came here after a family member brought us a cookie from here. (The hype about their chocolate chip cookies is REAL)!  The shape of the cookie is a half dome, very thick, so rich and so much chocolate.  I'm in love! Anyway, I came here a little after 8pm ... read more

I was surprised this place opens so early. My roommates wanted to have brunch and brought me here. Their breakfast selection was hard to choose from. There are so many entrees, for an indecisive person like me, it was so hard. I had to pass on breakfast and try their sandwiches. I noticed alot of the other customers ordering their re ... read more

Had great service and great food.  When we got there there was 4 woman on the clock. A little later 3 men came on duty.  I think the owner should know 5 minutes after 1 of the men got there he took a plate of food piled high and went and sat outside for at least 30 minutes. When we left at least a third of the food was left wasted on ... read more

A coworker went home to visit her family and brought our team back a box of the chocolate chip cookies. Best.Cookies.Ever. Even after traveling across the country.

Been coming here for years. The banner in maps describes the type of food. It's always good. I'm glad I usually eat my meal before thinking about dessert, or I'd weigh a thousand pounds.

Well loved restuant that service wonderful American & German food. The staff has been around a long time, very friendly. Gunther still works in the kitchen and greets the guests. They do breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Famous for their Apple Strudels and cookies. For a home cooked meal go try them.

Traditional, authentic American style diner with a very friendly, hard-working staff. The owner is still around after 45 years of business I believe...and shows how much care and value is put into this restaurant. I love diner brewed coffee (much better than any starbucks or Pete's for brews), with free refills so come and get wired.

Impressive catering experience, my mom was thrilled, and Gunther is a fun and friendly chef. Eaten in-house a few times too. They do cafeteria style which some might not like but I have enjoyed it each time, and their chocolate chip cookies are awesome.

It's not what I was expecting for a German restaurant. I had the roast turkey plate with red cabbage and mashed potatoes. I would go back but only if I was close by. Wouldn't travel from Morgan Hill again.

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.
