Great prices for wonderful food. My husband and I both had the trout, which was delicious. Inventive sides were the perfect complement to the fish. Good selection of all beverages
Excellent food and atmosphere. Worth the price. Very cool place close to The Homestead Resort.
Perfect!!! Fresh and clean taste and favor. Beyond any expectations!!!
excellent food, thoughtfully put together with service to match
Celebrating my father being with us again after 3 months. It was heavenly
Food was good but very unique. Everything is very specific and a lot of flavors in one dish. We got 2 desserts and both were very dry.
Food is always consistent. Fresh, local and always a bit of a flair! Never disappoints.
It was beautiful and food was so good! Use open table, I called and they said they were completely full and put us on a wait list, several hours later i checked back and there were time slots on open table
Great place to eat in a very small town near Hot Springs. Overall a great experience. The service, drinks and food were outstanding. Not sure when we'll be back to this area but if we are it's assured we'll definitely go back here!
Sierra was great and very attentive to our needs. Best server I've had in awhile.
My friends and I dined at The Waterwheel, I had the crab cakes, they were delicious and the sauce was Tasty. The maple cream cake was delicious also. I would definitely recommend The Waterwheel! The ambience was very nice there.
Every item from the wine to the filet was perfection. Excellent service! Dessert made your eyes roll...hazelnut brownie.
Great personalized service, delicious food and unique atmosphere in a literal building that has an old waterwheel in it.
This is THE place to go if you want a spectacular meal. We have never been disappointed, ever. The steak is beyond wonderful, along with everything served with it. This was not a special occasion for us, we are local, but after our night there it sure did feel special.
Go there! Very nice!
Fantastic dining experience. Food and beverages prepared and presented to perfection.
Wait staff was very attentive and accommodating to dietary restrictions. The location and physical appearance were quite unique and stunning.
Everything was wonderful from the minute we were greeted warmly at the door u til we finished dessert!
So much fun! We loved going down to the cellar to pick out our wine. Our food was great and excellent service!
Overall, my wife and I were happy with our experience, and we were very satisfied with our meal. I would definitely recommend for anyone to give this place a try.
Delicious French onion soup! Tender moist filet served with buttery cheese grits! Loved the combination. Would order this again!
Its a great place ... I recommend the two top table up in the corner next to the cork dispenser.. super quiet and romantic - Loved it !
Great food. Good service.
Wonderful dinner selection, extra social distance spacing. Extremely thoughtful staff! Delicious 😋

A diamond in the woods! Good folks.
We had dinner here twice during our week’s vacation in the area. Loved it both times. My husband loved the filet, my chicken dish was excellent. And our friends raved about their salmon dinners. The wine cellar’s diversity of high quality and renowned wines was fun to explore. Whoever stocks the wines definitely knows his/her stuff. The servers were knowledgeable, personable and professional. The setting of this restaurant was charming. Definitely recommend and would return again.
Great food and service
My husband and I were staying at the Omni Homestead Resort and wanted to eat offsite one night. We came here to celebrate our anniversary and it was the perfect, cozy, romantic setting for the occasion! We are big wine lovers and the cellar was a very fun experience, to go pick out our own wine from the cellar was exciting! The food was phenomenal and the service was fantastic! This is a hidden gem!! I highly recommend!!
Historical setting with simplicity.
COVID 19 compliant. Food was best in area. Large selection of bourbons.
Crab cakes and filet were so good! The service was excellent!
Great food and wonderful atmosphere. Loved the wine cellar!
always a joy to dine at the Waterwheel
Solid farm to table food in an intimate historical setting. Priced appropriately.
Great cozy location. Great service and excellent dinner.
I would recommend the Waterwheel to anyone visiting the area. We went the for our anniversary dinner, and the staff and food did not disappoint.
Amazing! Thank you Sierra!
We recently got engaged on our visit. The food was inventive especially the jalapeño corn and cucumber dill soup. I loved the buttermilk trout and accompanying sauces. The ambiance was quiet interesting and quaint. I thank you so much for the champagne and well wishes. Thank you for making the night special. I was so nervous that I didn’t get our server’s name but please extend my thanks to the entire staff.
It’s two years since we ate at the Gristmill. We weren’t sure what our Covid experience would be like ,but we were delighted. Felt totally safe,attentive service and excellent food preparation and presentation. By far the best restaurant choice in the area
Great food and service.
The Ribeye is huge and cooked perfectly to order.
