    Having lived in St Petersburg only a few years, I have had a hard time finding a beach restaurant for a nice lunch with family or friends. We had a great lunch, good food and beautiful scenery. The prices were about the same as any of the others along the beach, but the food was much better. Although it was Sunday, the place was mostly empty. I almost didn't want to write this review so I could keep the place all to myself!!! I can't wait to go for dinner.

    We are locals but we had family in town and wanted to do something different. We came here for dinner and the sunset views were amazing. Because it is glass and revolving, every seat has a perfect view for the meal. Everyone in our party really enjoyed their meals as well. The appetizers were great! We order steaks, chicken and pasta dishes too that were all tasty. We had some special requests for the entrees (regarding the preparation) and everything came out to our specifications. We have other out of town guests coming to visit soon and plan to take them here as well since the experience was so unique and enjoyable.

    In the restaurant business location is everything and this restaurant has it. A revolving ring of tables atop The Grand Plaza Resort in St. Pete Beach. The menu has all the basics and priced very reasonably. However there is room for improvement. The staff is professional and attentive and the décor is simple because you cannot distract from the view. Glistening ripples of gulf waters, angel white sand, palms dancing in the breeze and a slow-motion explosion of colors at sunset. As you can tell, I didn't forget the view.

    one person in our party ordered a hamburger and wanted it well done it came very rare ,they redid the order and said that seeing as that person was not able to eat at the same time as the rest of our party as the 2nd hamburger came when every one else was almost through with their meal that they would take it off our bill --a very nice gesture (the baldeagle )

    We are locals and this was our first time coming to Spinners. I was absolutely pleased with the entire experience starting with fantastic service, great food and spectacular food. This is a special occasion spot so it was packed on a beautiful Saturday night. The energy of the restaurant is high because there is a bar area in the middle of the spinning restaurant, but I was not bothered by the noise or the crowd. You are made to feel truly special here by everyone and it was one of the best birthday dinners I've had in a long time. We will definitely be returning in the future.

    Fantastic food, great service and views that even my 6 year old daughter thought were "Amazing" before we watched the sunset. Kids menu has the usual plain choices which my daughter skipped but the main menu really does have something for everyone! The presentation of the dishes was fantastic. The serviing staff couldn't do enough to make sure my daughter was enjoying her meal never mind me yet it didn't feel like they were constantly there asking if we wanted or needed anything. The break between courses was perfectly timed also. Everyone who visits St Petes needs to eat here at least once, I know we will be back when we are on holiday next time. A huge thanks to the staff for a fantastic experience!

    I always look for the "different" venues when it comes to dining. A good restraunt can be found everywhere. But a great one has a niche that can hook a guest into coming back time and time again. Spinners was amazing and romantic and I will strongly recommend this place to anyone that wants amazing food and a beautiful sunset to go with it. There are 2 things that need work, however: 1. It seems that the wait staff doesn't really know how to handle multiple tables when one is a large group. We only had a party of two and the attention was amazing, until the party of 7 sat down next to us. We almost seemed forgotten and the server almost seemed overwhelmed. 2. Reservations. When someone books a special occasion, make them feel extra special.

    I mentioned to my boyfriend that I'd like to watch a sunset at the beach, and he thoughtfully made a dinner reservation here. The food was delicious and he said the clam chowder may be the best he's ever had. Of course the view can't be beat. All the tables are along the window, so there's not a bad view in the house. I look forward to going back.

    Comments made to the head waiter or manager fell of deaf ears. The revolving restaurant is good until your table reaches the position of the Bar and Kitchen. And then all hell breaks loose with traffic of people and waiters bumping into the back of your chair without concern. The ceiling fans are spinning on what it seems to be a string that will break at any time.

    My daughter and I had only one day to spend at the beach. We took in some sun and then wanted to have a nice dinner. Open table suggested this restaurant for the view. It exceeding my expectations and the food was excellent. Being such a tourist spot, the food or service could easily suffer but that is not the case here. Our server was busy, but good. Watching the sunset as you dine is a dream. We'll we back next time with the entire family.

    The rooftop restaurant is challenging to approach as some of the elevators only go to the penthouse suite so hopefully a maid will be there to direct you to the proper elevator to reach the revolving rooftop restaurant. Once there, the staff is friendly and accommodating and the view is terrific as you revolve slowly around seeing both Gulfside and bayside. However, it is very loud as there seems to be no cloth or help for the volume in the room. The N & N stands for 'nice by noisy'.

    A great view from the top of St. Pete, but the decor and feel of the restaurant is old and not old classic or historical, old like 80s/early 90s, complete with mirrors everywhere and a tacky disco ball in the tiny bar. The appetizers were basic, and no effort was put into presentation. We got the cheese plate, and it was just that, slices of cheese were stacked on a plate, served with ritz type crackers. I ordered a steak which was tasty but nothing extravagant . The sides with the steak, were basic and took little effort... Steamed broccoli and baby potatoes seasoned with salt. My friend, who ordered a different steak, had the same side items, no originality. If you are looking for a great view, this is the spot, otherwise go elsewhere...
