    overall our dining experience was good. Our waiter was attentive and the view is spectacular. my major complaint is the difficulty getting to the hostess stand. The tables are so close it is difficult to get through them without disturbing the diners.

    I took my girlfriend of 5 years out to the beach before dinner to purpose to her, after we went to the restaurant where they had a bottle of wine waiting on the table for her. The place was very romantic and all staff very kind. I will definitely return in the future.

    Claudia was our wonderful server and made the evening for us. She was helpful, sharp, intelligent, friendly and witty. Food portions were perfect and tasty. It takes around 60 minutes for the restaurant to rotate 360 degrees, with gorgeous views of the gulf, Boca Ciega Bay, and St. Pete Beach. We experienced a great evening. Claudia was amazing and made us feel comfortable, appreciated, and welcome.

    The view was amazing at sunset. The service was excellent, well-timed, and very pleasant. I would definitely recommend the the Chicken Parmesan hands down but be prepared to take some home of it home as the portions are large. And the desserts.........oh the desserts......I had 2.

    We are locals and love to have dinner for special occasions at the Spinners Rooftop Lounge. The views are so spectacular and atmosphere is very lovely. The food selections fit a variety of tastes and the portions are so generous. Joseph was our waiter and took very good care of us and offered to take our photo for remembrance. Highly recommend. Only drawback is when it is busy, the noise factor is very distracting.

    We were on vacation and several local workers told us to try Spinners, especially during sunset because it has the best view of the area. WOW! Not only was the view wonderful, but the food was outstanding. We were able to find a variety of food for my vegetarian friend and some wonderful seafood for me. Plus, the wine list is well rounded and we each enjoyed a glass.

    If you are looking for a beautiful sunset & great food, I would recommend this place. The Bruschetta was very good. I also had the coconut crusted mahi mahi w/chutney that made it very flavorful. I only wished it was baked instead of fried. I booked reservations in advance to celebrate my Mother's birthday. She is 82 yrs old & wanted to see a sunset for her birthday. The table we sat at in rotation was on the opposite side of the room when the sun went down. I was able to get her up from the table to see it just as the sun disappeared in the ocean. I wished I had thought more of the placement of tables/time element before we sat down. The candlelight made the atmosphere personal & quaint. The service wasn't so great but everything else was.

    We were celebrating our 30th Wedding Anniversary and decided to have dinner at Spinners. We had not been there in many years and found it to be more elegant than our last visit. White linen table cloths and a sunset view that could not be matched. Service and food were excellent and as locals to this area, we will be going back much more often

    Made reservations online and completed the comment section with "Celebrating 48th Wedding Anniversary." No mention was made or action taken regarding this celebration. Twenty-eight dollar coconut fish dish was fried to tastelessness. No attempt to remedy situation was made. Would not return. I left comment card with restaurant but don't expect any response. They have the view thing going and don't try that hard to do the food or service thing.

    I took my fiancé to Spinners for an Anniversary dinner. I have lived in the area for years, yet this was my first time eating here. All I can say is the pictures on the website do not give the view justice! we got there just before the sunset and It was a perfect view! The service was friendly and prompt. The food was delicious! I would recommend this restaurant to everyone. I feel a proper review must include one negative so the only thing I can think of, would be the time it took to get a refill on my alcoholic drink. My water was refilled often and without requesting. The bar was a little behind due to a Saturday night so even that was acceptable! I will be adding Spinners into my small list of must return dinner spots!

    The food was amazing. We had heard at one time the food wasnt very good but we found that has long since past. We enjoyed the dinner very much. The only down side to this romantic evening out was the two screaming children (infants) near us. I felt for 150.00 dinner the kids screaming was a bit much. I blame their parents for bringing them. It is a fancier place than most and not a place for infants.

    At 6:15 pm we were seated immediately by 6:30 there was a crowd. After they were all seated no empty table remained. Excellent variety of food choices. We had two different beef entrees and two different fish entrees and ALL were very good. Server never hovered but seemed to be there when needed. We never felt rushed even after bill was paid. $$$$ price but very good value.

    When visiting the St. Petersburg/Clearwater we always make time to eat at Spinners. Everything always exceeds our expectations. The sunsets are breath taking. The great thing about a revolving restaurant is that there is no bad seat! This time we brought a few friends. They could not believe that a place like Spinners existed. They said it was one of the best overall dining experiences they have had in a very long time and we have to agree.

    My husband and I went to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The views are amazing and it is definitely a one of a kind atmosphere. Slightly noisy but in a "happening place" kind of way. Our server Tracywas ok and we did not want for anything but she was not particularly enthusiastic. The wine list at this restaurant had a great variety but was hideously overpriced. While most wine lists in restaurants have a considerable mark-up, theirs' was insulting. The food was a mixed experience. It was ok but again nothing stellar. Overall this was a decent experience. I certainly would not recommend that foodies come here, as the best part of the restaurant is the view. We won't go backas once was enough.

    Go here for a great sunset, or just go to the beach for the same great sunset. Food is just okay , not worth the price but the view is awesome. At our table we had, prime rib, haddock fish dish, grouper Oscar and broiled shrimp. I expected huge shrimp, but received 8 small shrimp. Should have gone to Red Lobster for shrimp at about 1/2 the price. The grouper and the haddock was good but small. Prime rib was fine. We have checked this place off our bucket list. No need to go back

    We enjoyed our meal very much and it was beautiful to look over the area. Service was good but a few times my water glass was empty as I do drink lots of it during a meal and breadsticks arrived during meal rather than with appetizer (had to ask for them). Noise level would have been better if one group didn't have some loud people in it. That's not the restaurants fault just some people don't think about others. Cocktails were very good. Pricewise, it isn't cheap but we've paid more and gotten less at higher end restaurants so this was a good deal as far as what you got for what you paid for. Portions were excellent.

    As a Retired Chef, I know what an exceptional dining experience consists of and this evening was "hitting on all cylinders" Our waiter kept a close eye on our table without hovering. The meal was superbly prepared and was delicious. The portions were more than what was expected, but only in a good way. This restaurant has an excellent chef and staff. Best meal I have had, that I did not prepare. Thank you Spinners for a night to remember.

    We live in St. Pete and we dine out often. We were about 30 minutes early from our reservation, but we were seated immediately and that was nice. We both agreed the view was spectacular. We ordered drinks and the grouper nugget appetizer. My wife ordered a dirty martini and I a Jameson/rocks. The martini came in a water glass and was clear. No olive juice. We asked the waiter about it and he replaced it with a better drink. No problem. We both ordered rib-eye steaks. One with the crab/hollandaise and one not. Hers med/well and mine medium. The steaks were crossed and we had to switch mid-meal.

    This restaurant is really a great place to celebrate a special occasion but not very good for any type of group communication. Due to the proximity for the two bars and their associated noise levels, it is better suited to couples having intimate conversations. You cannot beat the views and the food and service were above my expectations.

    This restaurant has a wonderful view. That being said, the food is not so great. Think bad wedding food made in mass quantities. We actually ended up leaving after our appetizers, because we thought it would be a waste of our money. If you're looking for a good romantic date, go elsewhere. The only thing you'll enjoy at spinners is the view.

    Searching the area around the crown plaza hotel for a restaurant with that special feel we found spinners right on our doorstep.Spinners has fabulous views ofthe intercostal waterway and beach.Watching the sun go down from the comfort of the revolving restaurant and then the superb light show when the strip lit up was a lovely experience.The food at spinners is probably the best in St petes,with a great choice for fish and meat lovers.We started with scallops with mango salsa a superb dish cooked to perfection,followed by prime rib again excellent.To full for desert we sat back and finished our wine enjoying the relaxed feel of the restaurant.the service at spinners is excellent above and beyond the tipical beach restaurant

    The draw here was the promising menu and the revolving rooftop view. The view was beautiful but the food was very, very basic with a $$$ price tag. I would call it home cooking at best and that might just be an insult to home cooks everywhere! Wine list was uninspiring as well. Our server was attentive but unfortunately did not have much of a product to sell. Been there, done that and would not return or recommend.
