  • Not a good place for seafood

    The place was empty, only two other tables in the restaurant occupied. Clam Chowder was good. Caesars salad was good. The salmon on the Seafood Trio was over cooked and the perch was soggy. The walleye was under cooked. For a restaurant with the name of Spinnaker you would think the seafood could have been better. The service was outstanding but we were her only table. We won't be back.

    What a dump! An old hotel restaurant left untouched since 1970. HOWEVER, once you read the menu and taste the food you will realize that the decor is a moot point. Fabulous food and wonderful service. This chef knows what he's doing!

    Stopped in for dinner on drive back to Detroit. Didnt have high expectations, but delighted to find really good food. The asian spiced ahi tuna was perfectly cooked rare, with nice pepper and sesame seed crust. Served with a side of roasted redskins, tender crisp squash, and a delicious wasabi cucumber slaw. I had to have an extra side of the wasabi cream sauce it was that good. We also had a burger which was perfectly cooked to medium rare. The only downer was the fries were a bit oily, and the blue cheese on the burger was quite salty. Enjoyed reasonably priced single malt scotch as well. Would definitely return.

    We came for our brother's birthday and the small private room was just right with blue napkins and white flowers.. Jennifer, our waitress reflected just the right balance of patient professionalism and genuine personal attention. We recommend the crab cakes and the warm brownie with vanilla sorbet and caramel sauce! air conditioner was but, the we were hit in freezing bursts of air. Soft background music would have been nice. Still, we would schedule another event there.

    I brought my wife here for Valentine's Day - we had a very good time and appreciate that the restaurant was open and had available seating (err, should have tried to make reservations earlier..). We had high hopes for our dining experience, but realized quickly that Spinnaker is more of a casual medium-level restaurant and not a place where foodies will have a good experience. This is a good place for quiet, decent lunches, lunch meetings or as an alternative for casual family night out although I wouldn't consider it in my top 5 choices.

    My husband and I always enjoy our "eats' at the Spinnaker or in the Bar Lounge, however our high school class christmas luncheons, which we have held there for the past 5 years, have been beyond outstanding. Arrangements made with Stacy Johnson are the very best. She is so professional and throughout each event, continues to make sure everything is exactly the way we requested.... the food and service is always outstanding. Kudos to the entire staff! We have plans for our 60th class reunion there in 2014!
