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.

SpringHouse Ratings and Reviews
Warm welcome, lovely setting, beautiful design and decor, delicious food served on Earthborn tableware, and a pleasant low-key sophistication are some of the reasons we return to Spring House. It's no wonder we see it featured in Alabama Magazine and other media.
We enjoyed the Sunday Brunch. The food was outstanding, they cure (smoke) & cut their own very thick sliced bacon. I don't believe I've ever had any bacon that approaches the flavor and taste of their "home made" bacon. Rob knows his food, preparation, service and with the beautiful setting, serves up a wonderful dining experience. The focus on local and regional cuisine expertly prepared enhances the experience. I've never had a better breakfast (Sunday Brunch) in my life and I have enjoyed excellent southern food for 70 years.
We had an enjoyable meal at Spring House. We both had a shrimp remoulade appetizer with house-made crackers. Not your usual remoulade; but almost a dip consistency. Duck with apples and rutabagas was my entree. The duck was tender and flavorful. My husband had tripletail fish with potatoes and mushrooms. It was cooked perfectly. He had a slice of apple caramel cheesecake for dessert. The cheesecake must have been good because there were no leftovers. Our server was courteous and knowledgeable. The other waitstaff was very attentive. This is a beautiful restaurant in a gorgeous setting. We will be back!
We had brunch on Sunday following the Auburn victory over Alabama. Everyone was extremely friendly and the food was awesome. The Scamp fish was excellent and the Eggs Benedict was just cooked to perfection. This was our first visit and we'll be back next time we're in the area.
Late brunch with our sons. Food quality, preparation and presentation is exceptional. Portions are on the small side designed to be savored. Dessert selection left a lot to be desired. Service was non intrusive and adequate. Atmosphere and restaurant is warm and gracious. A real gem in the middle of rolling hills and a true asset to the Lake Martin community.
We took our son (Auburn student) and some friends here for Sunday Brunch. It was such a beautiful atmosphere and yummy Southern food. The guys ordered 2 food items as some of the portions are small but the prices allowed for that. The property is beautiful. We didn't get a chance to go to Catherine's Market but will definitely do that next time.
A lovely evening by the fireplace. The Springhouse has the best ambiance with its rustic but elegant charm. The food was simply scrumptious, the staff friendly, and an all-n-all wonderful evening. The Springhouse also easily accommodates food allergies or intolerances so don't hesitate to visit.
Another anniversary at this amazing place. Exceptional food and service presented in an unpretentious fashion. An absolute jewel in the most unlikely of locations. Don’t expect to return and have what you enjoyed last time. The chef is true to the locally sourced promise, so the menu never repeats. That means every meal is a truly new experience. A bonus is the very respectable wine list and a bartender who truly understands his craft. SpringHouse is out of the way, to say the least...but more than worth the drive.
Just wasn’t a fan of their menu tonight at all. Left hungry:-( sorry . Also service wasn’t really up to par tonight. I guess I only paid for 1 glass of ice tea... no refills. You would think since the Summer crowd has basically gone, they would go above and beyond for the guest /locals to keep us coming back during the Winter Season.
Had dinner at Springhouse with out of town family who were visiting. Weather was very cooperative so we sat outside. Great setting with awesome sunset. Our waitress was outgoing and friendly. Service was very good. There aren't many similar dining options in this area, but even if there were, I would still choose Springhouse for their food, service and awesome location.
Springhouse was mostly a very enjoyable experience. Service was excellent; restaurant is just gorgeous; location is rather out-of-the-way, but situated beautifully on rolling hills and meadows. Most of the food was good, but my husband and I had the NY strip steak, and both were tough and overcooked. If we return for a second visit, we would definitely order a different entre .
This was our first experience at this restaurant. It was freezing cold and had a draft blowing from somewhere. So hard that the candle on our table wouldn't stay lit. The restaurant smells of the wood fire stove so we both left smelling like we had been camping. The server was excellent. Everything on point there. The steak tar tar was an odd cake with some type of sauce. The texture was stringy. Cheese plate was on point. The fish entrees were disappointing, flavorless. The deserts were excellent.
Three of us went for an early dinner and had a wonderful time. It was our first time here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Delicious bread with butter was served after we were seated. We ordered the barjack fish as an appetizer-crisp on the outside and tender on the inside. My Niman pork chop was perfectly cooked and melt-in-the-mouth tender. My husband had Mr. Jim's vegetable plate and it was very good; my friend enjoyed the sausage appetizer as an entree. After dinner, we walked around inside and outside and fell in love with the surroundings! And the timing was perfect as we were treated to an amazing sunset to complete the adventure.
