Spring House Restaurant, Kitchen & Bar Ratings and Reviews
Spring House is a beautiful restaurant. It has a wonderful outdoor area attached to the bar for drinks. The rooms are very nicely decorated. The food is excellent, large portions.
Our server was also very good and knowledgeable. Overall wonderful experience!
The food is delicious and portions are huge! The ambiance is nice but it's a little too quiet with no vibe or music or buzz. The service is friendly and detailed but painfully slow. We had to wait an extraordinarily long time for our check to be brought to the table, then for the check to be processed and finally for the to-go boxes to be packed and brought out. The manager should help train servers on how to read their tables and speed up/slow down the pace of the meal. It felt like we ended on a low note with the slow ending as everyone was full and anxious to go.
Beautiful old house with really nice ambiance. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The lamb, in particular, was delicious and the specialty cocktails were creative and tasty. Would have liked a few more options for non-red-meat eaters, as even the salmon had pork in the sides. Substitutions were offered, but it's never quite the same. Small quibble though! We'll be back.
This is my second business to this restaurant. They do so much REALLY well and a few things not so well.
Service was good although our server had her shirt hiked up and you could see her stomach on the side the whole time...A bit uncomfortable to say something? Maybe wear longer shirts for staff?
My iced tea glass got to the empty point a couple times which was shocking considering the type this restaurant is.
They were wonderful with the free dessert, it was a pleasant and nice surprise. I hate bread pudding but it was wonderful and warm. The bread was really generous and good as always. I didn't think the butter tasted like honey but I can live with that.
I had chicken and it was good, I'm not a fan of pickled veges but they were nicely done. My grits were stone cold which didn't matter much because I'm not a grit fan. They were really rich and tasted good though.
My daughter had a steak which was cooked perfectly.
Overall super yummy. My asparagus soup was NOT good. I love asparagus so maybe this was just me. I have had their onion soup and would get that again and highly recommend it.
I will come back ...not regularly but every so often. I also want to say GREAT JOB to the hostesses. They were polite and professional and still remained personable and warm. Good job ladies. I also liked that the manager spoke to us.
It was super low key and not busy....
we were sort of bummed because we were not offered the specials. we heard our server list them off to the table next to us and we were like, "why didn't we get to hear about them?" Sort of ruined the mood the rest of the night. When you go to a nice restaurant and spend $100 on a meal, you expect to be a little catered to, in my opinion.
Hands down, Spring House is my favorite place to eat in Winston Salem. Just the right mix of delicious food, great service and a beautiful historic home in downtown Winston Salem makes for a wonderful dinner for a special occasion. Don't miss out on the bread service with the Bacon Jam or any entree that enlists the Pimiento Cheese infused Grits!
Very nice atmosphere in what appears to be an old house but not sure. Attentive but unobtrusive service. Menu had many unique choices, everything we tried was very good. It was raining the evening we went but there is patio seating which I am sure is lovely on a summer evening.
We were on a date after having a new baby. Springhouse is a special occasion place for us. It was a very quiet and romatic evening to get away. We really enjoyed the oyster appetizer with pimento cheese. I had the pear and goat cheese salad with salmon while my husband had the salmon entree. We finished with coffee and dessert. We love Spring House and will definitely be back!
As usual our meal was delicious. We have been to Spring House a number of times. The only negative was the price for a drink purchased at the bar before dinner. We were charged $17 for a Manhattan made with bullit rye. We have never paid this much for a Manhattan ever. Even in Chicago. We initially thought it was an error
Our service was very good and so was the food. However when I arrived at the restaurant, I went to the bar to wait on my friend, and wasn't treated very friendly by the bartender. He did not appear to be extremely busy however he ignored me as I stood waiting for him to take my order. Just a brief acknowledgment would have sufficed until he could take my order. He also never cracked a smile....in fact he looked angry. Maybe he was having a bad day? I think when one is in the service business you just have to suck it up and put on a happy face!
I was really looking forward to finally eating at this restaurant. Unfortunately, while the food was delicious (with some constructive criticism), the overall service (with the exception of our server Leslie) was seriously lacking. My mother and I arrived well before our reservation and went to the very inviting bar for a cocktail. We both ordered one of their special cocktails, which we very rarely do (I'm straight bourbon and she's a gin & tonic). My mother did not think hers had enough gin, upon asking the bartender about this, she seemed offended and unconcerned and never offered to remake my mother's drink or make her something else. And at $13 a pop, a cocktail not enjoyed is hard to swallow. We made it to our table and our server, Leslie, was completely amazing and kind to our questions and requests. But that's where any great experience ended. We ordered bread service with pimento cheese, first course of fried green tomatoes, and 2 entrées. We waited a solid 20+ minutes for the bread to arrive. The pimento cheese, while good had way too much sugar and the bread was cold and dry. Within 2 minutes of the bread arriving (sadly, no exaggeration) our entrées arrived! No sign of our appetizer. My fried chicken was absolutely delicious, though the gravy (I asked for it on the side) had so much pepper in it (I am pepper lover) I couldn't eat it without wanting to sneeze. My mother's steak was wonderful and perfectly seasoned. The food itself, was delicious. Well executed and thoughtfully prepared. But I'd say that the kitchen has some work to do as far as timing. We weren't given the opportunity to enjoy the food that was presented. It's a beautiful restaurant, but the music they played was jumbled and inconsistent. One moment they were playing beautiful jazz classics, the next some strange current whiny tune. I found it distracting. While I'd like to try this place again, I'll do so with better expectations.
Wonderful restaurant in historic house , downtown Winston-Salem. Within walking distance of Stephens Center, Sawtooth Gallery, Hanesbrands Theatre and Aperture Theatre. Excellent wait staff. Delicious cocktails. Way above average food. Cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. They are very responsive to food preferences and willing to alter food to respond to these. Highly recommend.
An excellent experience with a well maintained history of the Winston Salem that" was" in history. A private residence( The Bahnson Family) in its origin, serving delightfully inspired well- portioned Southern progressive food. The Agnew Bahnson House at 450 North Spring Street was built in 1920. It now features a Cozy full service bar with a vibrant modern tone in the center of a multi-dining room beautifully preserved home. Complete with a fireplace when seasonally appropriate. Service is attentive and gracious . The menu is seasonal and even has a few delightful vegan options. Several dining experiences have exceeded anything that can be currently found within the area. In short , unique variety with great appeal for most.
I've been to Spring House many times and generally enjoy it. The food is good and the ambiance/set-up is nice. The wait staff always seems a little young and inexperienced...so the service can be hit or miss.
One of my pet peeves that I really wish they'd change is their fixed price menu policy. Either everyone at the table has to order it or nobody. This makes it very awkward for combinations of people...if some want to do it and some don't. I cannot, for the life of me, figure out the reason for the policy, either. They stuck to this policy even with the restaurant week $20 menu offering...and the 3-course fixed price was cheaper than any entree. Why would it have hurt the restaurant if someone at the tabled wanted a different (more expensive) entree?!?!
