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
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.
Spring House is the best restaurant in central Alabama. The wait staff is outstanding - friendly, informative and skillful in anticipating needs of patrons while not being intrusive. The creativity and inventiveness of the chefs and mixologists continue to delight palates with appetizers, entrees and drinks that make the dining experience at Spring House an epicurean adventure highlighting the flavor potentials of local ingredients.
Spur of the moment, but very pleased! Mr. Jim's Vegetables were spot on! We also really enjoyed the thinly sliced catalope and the fig/cheese appetizers. Too full to fully enjoy dessert, so we went with the homemade ice cream. Very resonably priced for excellent dining mid week.
We are regulars at the Springhouse but last Sunday the food was not up to their usual standards. I did not want to address the problem there as we had guests with us. They served 3 people at our table French Fries that were very cold and greasy. We were very disappointed.
My family and I were excited and looked forward to come to Springhouse to celebrate my wife's 55th Birthday. However, we were very disappointed by the terrible service (our Server "Trey" was rude, slow, ignored us and our table, and did not take our dinner order until 1 hour and 20 minutes after we were seated!). In addition, our food was cold, under cooked, and down right disappointing! Our Server "Trey" did little to make our dining experience enjoyable as he was rude and short with us when we asked questions about the menu. What a disappointment!
