A word from SpringHouse
Rising out of the hilltop, the 200-seat SpringHouse Restaurant will treat diners to a local cuisine served in rustic, casual elegance. The first architectural element guests will see as they enter the main dining room is the inglenook—a large fully-functional walk-in fireplace, which served as the center of the home in medieval times. At SpringHouse, the inglenook serves as a hot appetizer station during dining hours and a classroom during the day. As they pass the inglenook guests will notice handsome bars, rough-hewn beams, hand-forged ironwork, and a magnificent open kitchen, replete with a wood-fired oven and grill. The upstairs bar and dining area will focus on small plates and provide adults a place to relax and gather. Patios with working fireplaces flank the main dining room and upstairs bar. For special events, guests are invited to reserve the Well House—a private 12-seat dining room connected to the restaurant by an underground tunnel.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Spring house has never disappointed me and the food is always good. I was disappointed this night as there was no fish selection. There should always be at least 2. If I am going to spend that kind of money I want more of a variety. We would eat there a lot more often if the prices were more reasonable. I sincerely hope some competition comes soon."

  • "Having heard many comments from friends about their wonderful experience at SpringHouse I decided this would be a worthy choice for our Anniversary Celebration. We were not disappointed. As indicated by our rating we had an outstanding time. THANK YOU for an enjoyable evening."

  • "this was the highlight of our trip! worth the drive from Birmingham or anyway where. The food was absolutely wonderful. We could sit anywhere for a view but we ended up at the open kitchen bar. I am spreading the word here in Birmingham! GO!"

  • "We've been to Springhouse many times, and the food has deteriorated over the last few times. The price is very high for what you get. Spending $300 for 4 people you would expect outstanding food, not average. While this restaurant is probably the best around the Lake Martin area, it has not kept up the high standard that it showed in the past. With more competition, this place would lose a lot of business. Unfortunately they seem to have a monopoly on quality for those who can still afford it in this suffering economic area. We will probably not return."

  • "Made a last minute reservation, so only available reservation was the Chef's Counter (which we choose on purpose many nights). Wonderful starter of fresh asparagus with crawfish and Rhubarb soup. Delicious specialty cocktails and after dinner drinks suggested by Sam. Main course of beautiful scallops and fresh red snapper. Superior service by Jennifer and enjoyed a visit with Chris in the kitchen who kindly and patiently answered all of our questions about the preparation taking place in the kitchen. Finished our evening with delicious dessert of an ice cream sandwich (tiramisu with praline sauce). Highly recommend!!!!!!!!!!"

  • "My first two trips to Springhouse didn't go so well, but the third time was wonderful. we had a good knowledgeable waiter. He gave great recommendations & descriptions of the dishes. Our only complaint was it took a bit too long to get refills on cocktails. Delicious carpaccio and a rutabaga pancake that was terrific. My main course was shrimp with greens and white beans. It was so well prepared, delicious, flavorful, surprisingly light. The after dinner drink called "The Dude" is sooooo good. Its like a white Russian but much better. The homemade s'mores were fabulous too. I left feeling like I'd finally dined at the restaurant I've always wanted Spring house to be. I will be back again the next time we're at the lake."

  • "My favorite restaurant in the Southeast. Great food and excellent service. Fantastic cocktails. Really good Malbec with a perfectly cooked steak. Dining by the fire was great and I'll be back in the spring to enjoy the atmosphere at one of the outdoor tables."

  • "My family and I had a wonderful meal at the Spring House this past weekend. From the pleasant hostess, Kristen, who helped with directions (the GPS coordinates on the website seem to be a bit off) over the phone, to a thoughtful menu of local craft beers and seasonal ingredients, tasty apps and generous entrees, followed by a S'mores dessert, we had a memorable dinner. Our server was pleasant, knowledgeable and unobtrusive. The restaurant itself is a handsome structure and the roaring fire in the fire[lace made the open dining room seem quite ware despite the freezing temps out side."

  • "What a gem this restaurant has become in the Lake Martin, Alabama community. The ambiance is perfect, the food outstanding, the service makes us feel special and having such a wonderful place to go to dinner on Lake Martin makes our weekends so memorable."

  • "Our daughter had eaten at SpringHouse twice and loved it, so we took her there for her birthday. The entire experience was great. The restaurant is elegant but casual. Loved the pimento cheese appetizer and the fresh bread, and the entrees were delicious. We didn't have to wait long to be served but never felt as if we were being rushed. The service was exceptional. Everyone from the hostess to our servers to the manager was friendly and attentive but didn't hover. We're from B'ham and appreciate the fine dining there, but SpringHouse was as good an experience as we could have asked for -we can't wait to go back! (Our daughter has been to a wedding there and said the views are beautiful in the daylight. We may need to do brunch next.)"

  • "Beautiful architecture in the lodge style features large, open stone fireplace, rough hewn wood beams, lots of glass windows, and an open balcony to dine outside and watch the sunset. The food is delicious and service excellent, so what more could you ask for? This is certainly a neighborhood gem if you are the Alex City/Lake Martin area."

  • "Beautiful restaurant w/ an amazing view. We sat outside on their covered upper porch which was wonderful, but the loft bar area just inside was chic and cozy. Would have liked to have sat there as well."
