The bison meatloaf was too spicy, and was very dense in consistency as if it had been prepared earlier and rewarmed. The pho was gloppy, and the protein meats and scallops in the pho were all overcooked. We did not indicate anything to our server in that we had a guest and I do not like to "spoil" the occasion, by being the puler. I have had better meals there, but this one was inconsistent. We also did not take it out on our server, because she did not prepare the food. The appetizers were much better than the entres.

We attended for the Umani Tsunami ramen event! It was...fine. I personally felt the broth and noodles were under seasoned, which was disappointing. We were surprised when we asked the server which ramen she liked best, and she said she hadn't tried them all. How can she sell the food if she hasn't even tasted it? But it was still an enjoyable meal with friends. The apps were really good.

Very scarce options for anyone who isn't an omnivore - not even a salad on their restrictive menu. The one vegetarian item that was offered, forcing me to choose it, was bland, subpar, and left me hungry. I picked this for my "special" thirtieth birthday dinner and it was a huge disappointment - you can find a much cheaper meal, that will be so much more delicious, at many other places in Winston. We won't be returning.

My husband, son and I came to Spring House for New Year's Eve dinner. It was so nice! The atmosphere is so pretty - welcoming - just a little drafty in places (old house) which adds to the charm, in my opinion. Our waitress was very sweet - attentive. The kids meal could've been better - with better choices. My husband and I shared a salmon dish - they split it for us without charge - it was definitely plenty for two people to share! We will return!

My husband and I dined at Spring House for NYE. We had one of the earliest reservations for the evening and were fortunate enough to be seated in front of a fireplace in one of the upstairs dining rooms. We had the crab beignets, lobster bisque, chicken fried chicken with grits and greens, and grilled pork chop with sweet potatoes and roasted vegetables. It was all amazing and to quote my husband, "This is one of the best meals out we've had in a long time." Every staff member was welcoming and courteous. We will definitely be back.

We enjoyed the New Year's menu. My salmon was prepared perfectly with lobster mashed potatoes and broccoli. It was outstanding. My spouse's filet was slightly over cooked and just a bit salty to keep it from being outstanding. The flavor was so good otherwise, we did not want to complain. The service was as good or better than any we have had in the area, and the chef's contact with the diners was very enjoyable. It was a cold night, and we were seated next to French doors. At first all seemed well, but before the evening was over, the temperature became quite cool in our little corner. I gave it 4 stars, but I would assume the next time we go, it will be a 5! I do wish to return.

It was a superb experience in every way.
Initially our seating was changed at our request and our fireside table essentially for us was none better. Our waitress was sweet, knowledgeable, and responsive. Or decision to share three first courses plus a salad gave us our chance to savor much of what the chef was doing. It was a terrific way for us to prepare for/ enjoy the season with each other. We will remain grateful for your consummate hospitality.

This was our first time at Spring House Restaurant- it will not be our last. The soups, salad, and bison meatloaf were outstanding, as was the service. The value was 4-star because I always discourage high restaurant prices, but it wasn't bad, especially considering the quality.

Spring House Restaurant makes me infinitely happy. Just stepping in makes me instantly in a better mood. The service is unparalleled. The food is terrific with wonderful takes on fun southern classics like Fried Green Tomatoes that come with pulled pork and remoulade. The Colonel is a staple on the menu...a fried chicken with sawmill gravy. I like to get a table full of starters to share normally because they are usually fun and different. This past visit I enjoyed a Bison Meatloaf with tobacco onions, creamed spinach and whipped potatoes. I couldn't eat it all and I had ordered the smaller cut. My sister loved her filet which was the special for the night. Highly recommend a cocktail if you up for it. They have some of the best in town. Cozy, sexy bar too. It's my 10-year-old's favorite place to eat out and she loves the Cheetos Chicken Fingers. They have terrific options for children if you decide to make it a family night. Love this restaurant.

We had an excellent dinner for my wife's birthday. I put a note in the OpenTable reservation that it was her birthday, and they even brought a birthday dessert with a candle out without asking for it. Great service, excellent food.

My first time here, the ambiance is very nice. The problem was the food. The fried pork was beyond dry and was inedible. The scallops were good and the other entree of filet was decent, a little under for medium but was flavorful and pleasant. After telling the waiter the food was inedible he said OK, and took it away. Never offered a replacement despite it was obvious that only a small bit was taken. Might be worth it sometimes but I will not be going back.

We sat for 20 minutes with no service. I finally had to go to the host to ask what was going on. We were given free appetizers to compensate but we were not asked what we wanted or if we had dietary restrictions. The appetizers were heavy - e.g. French fries drowned in bacon gravy - and all in all the food was mediocre

We had a great time eating there with family that was visiting from out of town. There were 6 of us including grandparents and grandkids.
Loved the setting and ambiance and we had a great meal and a great time and wonderful service and food. Appetizers were great, food was great, and dessert (we got just one) was great. I did not mind too much, but thought a $3 upcharge for substituting a side item on a dish was a bit strange for such a nice restaurant. Also, asked for a wedge and got a caesar salad but its ok as well, it was still good!

We enjoyed the ambiance and the service was very good. We have had some outstanding meals in the past but this time our meals were very average and below expectations. Would not recommend Spring House based on this experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Spring House. My wife is Celiac and requires Gluten-Free dining and our waiter was very knowledgable and respectful of this fact. He guided us through the menu on the best GF options for our meal. The building itself is extremely unique and charming and the atmosphere was inviting. We did go a little early in the evening, so the noise level was minimal, but by the time we left a larger group had come and the sound was picking up. Overall, a great experience and we will definitely be going back.

The ambiance was excellent. The food was well prepared and tasty. However, it seems impossible to eat out at a restaurant without receiving food which is prepared to be very high in caloric intake. i.e. brussels sprouts were deep fat fried in a batter, and while tasty, I would have preferred them prepared without the added fat.

One of the best meals I have had in a long time. I tried Spring House when it first opened and was underwhelmed. However, this evening was much better. I had the pork chop and my husband had the meatloaf. Both were interesting and new in the way they were prepared but comforting and satisfying. This may well be my new favorite restaurant in Winston-Salem.

This was my first time eating here & was blown away by my dish. We ordered an appetizer that was excellent. My main course had such a vibrant mixture of flavors that complimented each other well. Definitely will not be my last visit. Also, old fashioned cocktail special on Friday night made for a special delight.

After many trips to the "Dash" we finally discovered Springhouse. What a treasure! Service is outstanding, with genuinely warm and friendly servers (and bartenders). The food is outstanding, and while it won't help my waistline, it's clearly fresh and chef-driven. The location is terrific and the quaint, historical home is classic, warm and inviting. Love the small rooms and throwback to a time when you actually wanted to hear the person sitting across the table from you. Love Springhouse and can't wait for our next chance to dine there.

Took my parents here. We are from Atlanta originally so we can be "restaurant snobs" toward originality, decor, ambiance, food, and wine. We were impressed with this place, but wish the server had told us a little more history on the house--we had to stop by the history wall upstairs on the way out.

What a lovely spot to spend our 43 wedding anniversary! The range of food options, presentation and quality were first rate and the service person attentive, helpful and not overbearing. In a word: superb! Although we did not sit there, the bar area and outside terrace were lively and inviting. Try to get there, you won't be disappointed.

I went here for my 2 year anniversary with my boyfriend. If you get the bread appetizer, you get SO MUCH bread for $5, so that was a great value. I got the Colonel chicken dish and the breading on the chicken was Perfect. I also got the apple cake for dessert and that may very well be my favorite restaurant dessert EVER. It was warm and homey tasting, with crispy brown sugar on top. Our waiter knew all about the menu and was very helpful. The atmosphere is homey and pretty. Great for special dates.

Upon arriving 45 minutes before our set reservation time, we intended to have a couple of drinks at the bar before sitting down for dinner. The bar was full (large seating party) and the hostess graciously seated us before our actual reservation time (Great!)
The waiter was spot on! He was informative (he knew the menu well) and did not pressure us to order quickly.
My wife and I started with the Steak Tartare. The starter was under-seasoned and nothing special. I had the Colonel for my main dish. Again, under-seasoned and overall completely unimpressive. My wife had "Steak and Eggs". The dish was under-seasoned and bland.
Perhaps the Chef was having a difficult night due to the large party that was seated just after us. Anyway, we'll never know if the Chef just had an "off night". We won'y go back.

This was a great find. Enjoyed everything about this restaurant with two exceptions. First, the table we sat at was a little small which made our dishes and glasses cramped. Second, my date did not enjoy her salmon (because of the sauce, not the fish). With all that said, I loved dining at Spring House and would and will most definitely eat there again. My date feels the same and knows her displeasure with her dish was because of the sauce, not the fish. I will also recommend this to anyone looking for a neat place to eat. The staff was as good as you could ask for, although our waitress could have been faster refilling our drinks. We loved the appetizers we had and look forward to trying more on our return visits.
