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 was not quite up to par with its usual standard. It could be it was the first week reopening after New Years and a couple of freezing snowy days. None the less, the atmosphere was delightful. Our waitress wanted to rush us until i asked her twice to slow down and let us enjoy our drinks an hor d'oeurves. My tuna was surprisingly dry and had obviously been sitting out. My wife's chicken was delicious. The chocolate dessert was Delicious as well. Peppadews are really good and a fun appetizer. The meat in the Cavatelli was tough but flavor was good. Gold Dust specially drink was perfect.

Been here many times for Sunday Brunch. Hopefully will make it one evening for dinner. Wife's birthday coming up. Will be looking forward to a memorable dining experience.

We had a great time for a long overdue date. As usual, the service and food were great. However, because they saw more of an uptick in business that weekend they had run out of several entrees. My only real complaint. This was over the New Year's weekend.

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.

Beautiful Sunday brunch with table on balcony. Skyler was excellent as a sever with quality information on menu items.
Sunday brunch menu is very reasonable and nice selection for cocktails if desired.
Two thumbs up

Outstanding cuisine with very friendly attentive service in an upscale rustic setting. Just wish they would have a soup on the dinner menu.

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.
Great job!

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.
