My husband and I are celebrating our anniversary this weekend.
We are staying in the King William area and will have our baby with us.
I am looking for nice restaurants for dinner and breakfast.
They don't have to be on the Riverwalk, just great food and where we won't be stared at or given the evil eye for having our baby in tow.
Any suggestions are much appreciated. We love all kinds of food!
Thank you!

The Guenther House for breakfast. La Frite, Rosario's for dinner. There's a TON of awesome restaurants in Southtown/KW. I'm sure you'll get about 100 more recommendations.

People give the evil eye for bringing a baby to a restaurant? Do they not remember where they got their start? Sorry to OT this, but I have to ask because I only smile at babies because they are so cute. Even when they're throwing a rant at the top of their lungs or keeping me up until 3 AM last Saturday night when my wife got the brilliant idea to take our granddaughter for the night.. It's nature at its finest.

Yes, unfortunately, evil eyes happen even to the cutest of babies.
I think some people just don't think a baby should be in a nice restaurant. Usually a restaurant that involves steak and wine and white table cloths. If we go to a restaurant that doesn't have a high chair, we know we need to leave. LOL! But, our baby usually just sleeps through dinner anyways and is not loud. I'm just looking for a place to have a nice meal and feel comfortable with all three of us there.
I heard the wait can be horrendous at the Guenther house, is there ever a good time to get there besides 7:00 in the morning when they open?

I visited San Antonio last week. We enjoyed breakfast at the Magnolia Pancake Haus, but that is off of 281/Bitters, which way north of downtown. We also ate the Guadalajara Grill in La Villita. That was okay. My family all agreed, however, that the Magnolia Pancake Haus was the best meal of the trip.

Magnolia's amazing, but a long drive from KW.

Which do you think is better, Magnolia's or Guenther's? We don't mind driving, because we are checking out on Sunday and can go to either for breakfast.
Thank you!

We didn't eat at Guenther's, so I don't know how good it is. But, I can totally vouch for Magnolia's. Mmmm...those pancakes!

The line at Magnolias on the weekend is long if you're there anytime after 830am. I once found a rubberband in my pancakes, but I liked the food so much that I was willing to overlook it.

Six of one, half dozen of another. Guenther's a piece of history with a better setting, but the food is killer at both. You'll have quite a wait at Magnolia too. We usually plan to show up by 730 if we go.
