Delicious food!

This definitely lived up to the previous reviews! Even if you don't stay at the Inn you should do dinner here. We had wonderful cocktails at the bar before dinner.

The atmosphere is wonderful, the food terrific, and service was fabulous for us, but frankly the most enjoyable and unique aspect of eating here is getting to go down into their wine cellar and select your own bottle of wine for dinner. It's not cheap, but they do have a great selection. A note, though, it's not chilled, so if... More

My wife and I celebrated our 6th anniversary here last Wednesday night. Food was outstanding, service was warm, knowledgable and superb. I was hesitant about my choice of cobia with citrus risotto and was blown away by how delicious it was. My French martini was so perfect, not too sweet, just right. I think my favorite part of the evening... More

Waterwheel was a true treat! The food and service were equally impressive. The meat was delicious and the ambiance was outstanding. This should be your top choice outside of the Homestead restaurants

We visit Warm Springs, Virginia for the beauty, the remoteness and the flyfishing. Sitting in rocking chairs on the front porch we soak in the sunset and listen to the quiet. Solitude in all its glory. True, The Homestead in Hot Springs and the Cascades Golf Course nearby attract visitors, but one could drive miles on back roads and see... More

My wife and I had dinner here one night. While the menu was not particularly exciting, the food was OK if somewhat overpriced. Service was friendly and polite.

My sister, friend and I ate at this restaurant while staying at the Inn at Gristmill Square. Both mine and my sister's meals were very nice, however, my friend had a bit of trouble when it came to her meal. My friend is lactose intolerant and therefore she had a relatively small amount of options to choose from. She decided... More

The Waterwheel restaurant is the go to place for locals as well as visitors to this historic area. It has wonderful ambiance with cozy seating and a creekside outdoor patio. An extensive wine list with an experienced wine enthusiast, a professional staff and delicious food make this a favorite spot for many. Reservations are needed as it is always full... More

We visited Waterwheel with a party of 7, and arrived to find our table beautifully set. We were greeted warmly - the evening began when we crossed the threshold! A visit to the wine cellar is a must - it's a small, intimate space, filled with an impressive collection of wine. The architecture of the building adds a lot to... More
