Waterwheel Restaurant - Inn at Gristmill Square
So much fun! We loved going down to the cellar to pick out our wine. Our food was great and excellent service!
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 !

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.
Such an amazing meal! My husband and I were staying at the Inn and decided to splurge on dinner here and we were not disappointed! I got the corn and jalapeño soup and my husband got the wedge salad. For entrees I got chicken and my husband got the 25 oz ribeye! Everything was really good and well made. The server was great even though she had all 6 tables outside by herself. She was attentive and made sure we always had what we needed.
To be fair, we have heard rave reviews about Waterwheel and might even give it a second chance because the other guests we talked to from The Homestead who tried it said their food (steak and chicken) was great. But the crab cakes were not good. And the trout was seriously under-seasoned to the point of tasteless. The atmosphere and the staff were lovely though, and we might brave a second try on another stay in the area. Hoping we just had a fluke experience.
Great food, great service. Nice outdoor seating which made it feel safe to dine during covid-19
A memorable experience. Everything was delicious and delightful. The ambiance is special. The service and food were truly excellent. Definitely worth the trip! If you're staying at The Homestead, make it your business to plan dinner there!
We celebrated our anniversary there this weekend! They gave us a great table outdoors tucked away from everyone! Very romantic...excellent service and food!! ❤️
We had a lovely meal here! Definitely worth the short drive from the Homestead if that’s where you’re staying.
SkeYs charming great service and delicious food and drinks
Highly recommend the Waterwheel Restaurant! Wonderful service and delightful ambiance. Will certainly return in the future. Five stars
Great food if you are looking for a quiet meal in Warm Springs. Server (Ashley) was exceptional...even made terrific wine pairing suggestions when asked.
Brought some friends from out of town to experience Waterwheel...as we expected, they LOVED it! Summer soups were a hit with our guests as well as the entrees and desserts. It was a wonderful evening dining alfresco and the service was great...thanks Sienna!
Great experience! One of our favorite places for special occasions!
Outstanding as usual! One of our favorite places when we are in the area.
The service was outstanding and the food was delicious! The maple cake was out of this world! We loved visiting the wine cellar to choose our wine for our meal. There was a very loud gentleman at a nearby table that disrupted the quiet ambience of the room. Overall, we had a nice time!
Simply a real jewel!! Excellent food, service and ambience. Love the wine cellar!
Many reasons for returning. It was a truely delighful find in a rather remote location. A caring and focused environment delivering a high end dinning experience!
Hidden gem in the Warm Springs Hills. If you find yourself in Bath County, then find yourself in a rich plate of food and drink at Waterwheel Restaurant. Never been disappointed, service is lovely, food interesting and setting spectacular. Terrific for date night, special occasions and getting off-property at the Homestead.
Nice place, good food, I recommend.
Quiet and beautiful.
Great little gem! Love to eat here every time I visit the area!
