“Very surprising ”

Great food! In my top five restaurants of all time. Wait my top three. The wife loved it as well so I know it was good! She is very picky and hard to please.

“Well worth scheduling into your drive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

We enjoyed our second visit to the Waterwheel Restaurant at the Inn at Gristmill Square, Warm Springs, VA, as much as we did our first. The menu is varied and engaging, the food masterfully prepared and nicely plated, and well served at the table. The owners, Kate & John, are bright and energetic, applying their credentialed experience to provide memorable and relaxed dining. The Inn at Grist Mill is a real jewel, worth putting on your driving agenda.

“excellent, excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

We chose this restaurant over dinner at The Homestead and are so happy we did. We only have good things to say. Wait staff and hostess were friendly, helpful. Very nice, picture perfect salad. The trout entrée was first class, as were the scallops. Unique, quaint building. Overall a very pleasant evening. Recommend reservations.

“Every bit as good as the Homestead restaurants!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Food at the Waterwheel (tiny restaurant in the Inn at Gristmill Square) is fresh and delicious. Service is wonderful. Even though we stayed at the Homestead, we made sure to eat at the Waterwheel!

“Absolutely Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

We spent two nights at the Inn at Gristmill Square and so happy we chose to have dinner here one of those evenings. Absolutely wonderful. Our party of four experienced the ribeye, scallops and filet. We were all so pleased. Wonderful atmosphere also.
