“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and it was so good. The service was excellent, food delicious and the restaurant so quaint.
I had the trout and it was perfection and my husband had the filet and it was equally as good.

“Delicious surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

This is a charming restaurant with a wonderfully professional, 5-star wait staff. Great wine selection that you can choose from yourself straight from their wine cellar! I never order eggplant parmesan from restaurants (as no one makes it as great as my mother!), but ordered it here as it was the only vegetarian option. I could not have been more pleasantly surprised with this dish! Not the typical soggy eggplant, smothered in tomato sauce & mozzarella. This was almost light & airy, with locally grown eggplant, nearly undetectable sauce, and a scrumptious & crispy top drizzled with balsamic vinegar. Quite a unique & dazzling version of an old time favorite. Would definitely return if in the area again. Cheers!

“Great Find near The Homestead”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We were staying at the Owner's Club at the Homestead and looking for dining alternatives to the resort. We decided to try the Waterwheel and were not disappointed. The building is unique and the cuisine was wonderful. The attached Inn is charming also.

“A wonderful dinner and a fantastic wine cellar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

What a wonderful gem in the small town of warm springs. I highly recommend you make reservations as there are only a few tables and there are not very many places to eat in this part of the state. The lamb rib appetizer was wonderful. I had the salmon and risotto and it was excellent. The service was exceptional. We enjoyed going to the wine cellar and choosing our own bottle of wine. We had a wonderful girls dinner. Maple cake is a fantastic dessert. The bread pudding was average so have the cake instead.

“Wonderful Place to Eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Loved the historic building and decor, and the food is excellent! The service is exceptional! We ordered the Grilled Filet Mignon and the Filet with Mushrooms which were both excellent. Great wine cellar!
