“Very Nice Dinner”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

Have dined here a couple of times and enjoyed it. Really nice atmosphere , good menu and very cool bar and wine cellar--pick your own.
Everyone enjoyed their dishes. Good variety and not tricked up--my wife loved the trout. Service is very good and reception friendly.
Just now starting to spend fair amounts of time in Hot Springs and this is currently our # 1 pick over any of the Homestead/Omni options for a nice meal out.
About 10 minutes from Homestead/Owners Club--Enjoy!

“If you are staying at the Homestead...”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

...get the valet to bring your car around to the front door. Then drive five miles up the road to Warm Springs and have dinner at the Waterwheel. The restaurants at the Homestead are quite good, but the Waterwheel is the next level up, for less money. I roundly recommend the trout and my wife loved the ravioli. The chef there really knows what she/he is doing. The preparation, flavors and presentation are all top notch. As is the service. There is a fine line between friendly gracious service and overbearing, ostentatious hovering. The staff at the Waterwheel knows where that line is and stays on the right side of it. We have visited the Waterwheel twice and will do so again any time we are in the area. The flavors, the presentation, the wine, the gracious attention of both staff and management, and the ambience were all excellent.

“Memorable meal”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Had a lovely anniversary meal at the restaurant. We had told them ahead of time that it was a special dinner, so they put us in a private area of the restaurant. They also offered us a complimentary glass of champagne or dessert. The food was delicious (the duck was prepared perfectly), the service attentive and the atmosphere cozy. Would definitely go back.

“We love this place!”
Reviewed May 26, 2014

We love the Waterwheel restaurant for special occasions or for a nice meal with friends. The wine cellar is a nice touch. You can go down to the cellar and pick your own bottle or order from the wine list. The restaurant is in a historic grist mill and the atmosphere is welcoming. There is nothing else like this in the area. Love it!!
