We haven't been here for a while since we moved 2 miles away.  Came back here before St Patty's .  Glad we did, the food is soooo good.  The corned beef and cabbage was excellent.  We ask had the corned beef Philly and it was amazing.  We had to come back the next day to have the same thing, that's how good it was.   Thanks for the g ... read more

He is nearly 84 there every day and is active in his restaurant.I like corned beef hash but it is very rare that any of the corned beef hashes I've had are any good. Most are canned but if m ... read more

Great food and very friendly staff. Can get busy quick, but worth the wait. They treat their Senior customers with tenderness and kindness. You don't see that anymore.

Food was ok, but the white chocolate macadamia nut cookies were amazing. I don't often cheat on manresa's or The buttery, but u have to now add Gunther's to the mix. On the food side , every dish was good and well proportioned and what you would expect for the style restaurant.

Excellent and authentic home-made style food with a German flair. Great for lunch or dinner, but the little know secret is that Gunther's is great for breakfast and not yet discovered my the crowds. Great local spot on edge of Willow Glen and Campbell. One of our favorites!

Reminds me of delis from back east. Great corned beef and chopped chicken livers. Good salads. Good comfort food. Very crowded at lunch. Get there by 11:30 for an easier time finding a seat.

This place is always outstanding. It's a wonderful and real deli. The new York style sandwiches are amazing. They have the best chocolate chip cookies ever! Breakfast is great too.

Been going here for years, would go more if it wasn't so expensive but the Rueben Sandwich with a Knish is to die for. Add a cherry Doctor Brown drink and I'm back in NYC. Saint Paddy's Day it's the best place locally for corn beef and cabbage as well.

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

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.
