First bad service we have had. Not sure why. Cold food and mixed up order and inaccurate bill. We will come again and hope it will be much improved. The staff did attempt to rectify the situations as they presented themselves so that was positive.

I would give Walhill a better rating, but we had the worst table in the house. We were next to the rest rooms, a door leading to the rooms available to stay overnight and the kitchen. We asked to move, but were told no other tables available. Our waitress offered to close the kitchen door. People who were staying in the rooms went in and out the whole time we were there, mainly to smoke. The service is very slow on initial drink orders(this has always been a problem there), but better on reorders. My husband had a steak, and it was fatty and had lots of gristle. He had the same experience the last time we were there with his steak. My daughter and I had the salmon, and it was delicious. They need to take out the table period! Also, hire another bartender on the weekends! Will go back, probably, but my husband will not order a steak! Love the local use of food and variety on the menu.
Also, the last time I booked through Open Table, I had to ask to move to another table. I think I will call the restaurant directly in the future!

Wonderful place to celebrate a birthday! Salads were excellent; entrees were beautifully plated and perfectly prepared. As always, service was attentive, but unobtrusive. We love the ever-changing menu focusing on locally sourced ingredients.

Enjoyed a delightful dinner at Walhill Farm. Food, drinks and service was top notch. Only suggestion is update restaurant interior. It's very dark and "old" looking.

Being vegetarian we were very pleased chef put together a flavorful pasta primavera. In-house churned strawberry ice cream was an added treat!!

We were seated in the bar area, live music was fun but a bit loud for conversation. Waitress omitted our appetizer order but in the end it was OK as we consumed every bite of the pasta.

We will return!!

Wonderful welcome from Gretchen and the wait staff. We missed the cranberry bread on this visit, but look forward to it next time. Food portions were more than ample! Half the amount served would be enough for most diners. As always, we appreciated the local ingredients. Menu is always fresh with new features!

Great service and great food. Ordered the spinach salad followed by a NY strip with mashed potatoes and green beans almandine. The steak was good, but not great, but the sides and the salad were fantastic. My wife ordered the grilled chicken with a side of cole-slaw that she claims was the best she ever had. The chicken was grilled to perfection and full of flavor. Someone in this kitchen knows what they are doing and it's all good.

Very nice place, good ambiance, great service ... but the food left us a little unsatisfied. Food was somewhat overcooked but good. Noise level was quiet because we were early (4:30) - not sure if it would be as quiet later in the evening.

Based on the reviews I read, and a co-worker's verbal review, I was excited to try Wahill Farms. Unfortunately, it did not live up to our expectations. While the service was good, the food was not. Most of the food our party ordered was brought out burnt and solid as a rock (hamburgers specifically). The steaks were overcooked and the mashed potatoes lacked any flavor. My salmon was cooked on the top, but raw in the middle and bottom. Wahill Farms is not at the top of my list of places to eat at again, but I am open to giving them one more chance; maybe there was a new cook or something.

We usually have a great experience ,, this time not so much.
We had the salmon, it was cooked too raw. We ask them to split the dish so
we could share ... the kitchen refuses to do that ,, but our server was wonderful and
took care of it. By the time we got to eat it was cold.
THe night before we dined here also .. we had the filet,, it was wonderful,.
but they did not split the dish as we had asked either.

We have visited Walhill Farms so many times the staff call us by name and know our drink orders! This absolute gem hidden in the country has yet to ever disappoint us. We always know the service will be impeccable and the food will be beyond amazing. The menu changes with what is plentiful on the farm and every visit has a new surprise. You can not get food anywhere more fresh or more local than at the farm. The quality of the food is unbelievable perfection. We have had our boater dock Christmas dinner celebration here for the past few years, several of our fellow boaters have now themselves become regulars as well. Every celebration, birthday, and anniversary we know where we want to go. I have even had Walhill cater an important work luncheon I organized, everyone was impressed. Our favorite place by far.

Went to Wahill for Valentine's Day Dinner with my husband. Had asked ahead of time to sit by the fireplace if the fireplace was being used. We got a table by the fireplace but the fireplace was not lit. This would not have been a problem except that it was winter, it was cold outside and it was a special evening and the tables by the fireplace get all the cold air from outside everytime the door is opened for someone to come in or leave. Would not have been a problem if the fireplace had a fire in it. Disappointed since I even asked ahead of time about this. Other than that disappointment the food was very good.

It was Valentine's Day, but there was only one special - for 2. Since it contained something that I was allergic to, we could not order it. We felt like we were sitting on someone's old dining room furniture. And, we were seated so close to the couple next to us, that we could not have private conversation. The room we were sitting in was just not very nice. The food was good, but pretty generic. Special arrangements had been made for a surprise during our meal, but the manager forgot to tell us and we learned about it on the way home. If you are driving out from Cincinnati, it is not really worth the drive.

We wanted to celebrate Valentine's day without traveling out of town. We had never eaten inside the restaurant. While we were not interested in the special meal for that evening, we still had DELICIOUS food! Our entrees were superb, but we are still raving about the fried ravioli! I don't think we'll ever forget it! Our cocktails were great too! Walhill is a rare gem, especially in an area where "nicer" restaurants are approximately an hour from Batesville.

Very nice restaurant. Great atmosphere. We had the Tuna Sashimi for an appetizer. Ahi tuna was very nice. The breads at Walhill are special. We enjoyed the Valentine's Day special Lobster and Beef Medallions. Beef was a bit overdone, but no big deal. Dessert for the wife was creme brulee. Mine wastheir bread pudding. Both were delicious.
