Diner Reviews
  • "My wife and I celebrated our first anniversary and chose Spinners for the occasion. The atmosphere was outstanding. Great views of the beach and beautiful sunset. Food was very good, try the lemon drop martini!"

  • "Fabulous view lots of out of towers. Food was basic American fair lacking imagination. We had the shrimp scampi and mozzarella sticks who appeared to have come to my plate out of a frozen box. Tuna tartar did not appear to fresh and the sauce was unimaginative. Overall come for the view and a drink and dine elsewhere."

  • "Great views of St Petersburg Beach, revolving 360 degrees every hour and a half. Food selection includes seafood and steak along with a wine menu to balance the meal selected. Food was delicious, service was attentive and would recommend to anybody."

  • "We made a reservation in hopes of a great view, we had an amazing view and a wonderful meal. The food was fantastic and service was great as well. Plan to relax as the food does take some time but well worth the wait!! ."

  • "We went for our 12 year anniversary and it was great! The view was amazing, low lighting and great music so it was a perfect romantic night. Prices are reasonable as well."

  • "Spinners Rooftop Revolving Bistro has a great view of the Tampa Bay area including the Gulf of Mexico. Most restaurants with a great view do not typically also have great food. However at Spinners the food and drinks were also excellent. We had visitors from Sweden that we took there and they thoroughly enjoyed everything about Spinners. While it is somewhat small we did not feel like we were unable to talk, laugh and have a good time."

  • "The service was a bit slow. Food was average. The scenic view is worth all negatives."

  • "We really enjoyed the restaurant's revolving view of the beach. Everything we ordered was really good except for the prime ribs which were quite greasy and tasted as if they had been around too long. The two of us who had them has stomach problems soon after!"
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "We have eaten at this restaurant before, years ago when it was under different ownership, I'm sure, and I had forgotten that it revolves! what a treat - St. Pete Beach is such a beautiful beach! We enjoyed the ambiance, crowded, energetic, lots of folks having a good time - and the food and service were also excellent. We'll come back again!"

  • "Found that we were served entree before we finished the salad. Also looking to have our bill paid before we finished dessert. Found that we were being rushed through. Otherwise food and view was excellent."

  • "I've now been to Spinners on three separate occasions with about 2 years in between visits- and have never been disappointed. The food has always been wonderful (and this last visit- came out EXTREMELY fast and was excellent). The main selling point of this restaurant is the scenery, as Spinners has one of the best views of all restaurants in Tampa/St. Pete. One of the other things that I especially appreciate is the wide variety on the drink menu (I'm a sucker for delicious martinis, so am always thrilled when I can find something fun). This is a must-go restaurant if you have family/friends in town, or want to mix it up on a date."

  • "Our first dinner at Spinners will not be our last. The view is breathtaking, the service was splendid and the foot was great. A smidge pricey but with all the ambiance, it was worth it; in fact, I thought the cocktails were very reasonably priced. They have a great wine list also. Highly recommend for those who want something different!"

  • "A group of us (eight people) were looking for a place to have lunch on a rainy Saturday afternoon. We were a bit worried about getting in somewhere – so we decided on Spinners since they took reservations! We were seated right away. It’s take a full hour to make it all the way around – and it took a few in our group a bit to get used to it. The food and service were great – and the view was fantastic! I would definitely recommend!"

  • "Placed on top of a hotell called Grand Plaza rises your expectatons. A rotating restaurang with that kind of view you expect some standard. If you ware a suit your definently overdressed. With a tie you're off. The volume is way to high and its hard to make yourself heard. The local need some rearangements getting the echo down, textiles or something. And the t-shirts and flipflops shold stay on the beach. Maybe the bad weather drove them up there but its bad for the restaurant. The food doesent live up to its pricing. Low in taste and texture. An overall disapointment. The placement and the view diserves a better standard and a better cook."

  • "Food was not very good at all - so basically the best part of the evening was the spinning effect of the restaurant. The view was beautiful"

  • "If you love looking at water and beaches it's a great place. We dined early evening, and if it weren't cloudy, would have had a beautiful sunset. The food was excellent. We didn't have room for dessert. Our particular waiter seemed to rush us to get an order, but once ordered, kept his attentiveness nominal."

  • "The views are complimented by great food and friendly service. Upscale but comfortable. Great for sunset drinks or a special dinner.m"

  • "We dined here for dinner and although it was overcast unfortunately, the view was still breathtaking. Because the seating revolves, there is not a bad seat in the place. Our appetizers took a little long but everything else was great. Would definitely give it a shot!"

  • "This restaurant was recommended as a must do during our month in Florida. It was all it was meant to be and the experience was great from the view to food and service. Well done!"

  • "This was the second time we ate at this restaurant, and this time we took our good friends to enjoy. The food was outstanding and the view is second to none! A very unique experience, where you get a total view of the Gulf and the Coastal waterway and the sunsets are breathtaking! We cannot wait to go again."

  • "We arrived at 815 with reservations for 830 and were sat right away.My Wife and I orderd an appetizer ,Coconut chicken skewers wich took 45 min before they were brought to the table, skewer was Very rubbery and overcooked. We ordered entrees, I had Grouper Picatta was over salted and overcooked , my Wife had the Ahi tuna was ok but left little else for salvaging our night. My bill came out with tip to $150. For that price i could have at least got food that was cooked well, Drinks were good size and service was ok. I dont think we will be back."

  • "The food was deliciously. I was with a group of 9 women, we all ordered various dishes and we all agreed that everything was pleasantly presented and delicious to the palate. The atmosphere was cheery. The help was most accomodating, from the manager to the waiter(s). We would definitely do this spot again and again."

  • "I ordered the queen size prime rib it was very fatty and tough and my mashed potatoes and broccoli was cold. My husband's meal was excellent he had ribeye steak. We both had appetizers which both were good. It was a nice spot to celebrate a birthday or special occasion ."

  • "The view was spectacular. I knew it would probably be great, but it was beyond my expectations. Even better was the food! I had one of the best filet mignon everIt was so tender and done just right. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone."

  • "The food was very good. Would have been happy at a normal restaurant with this food quality. Then add in the revolving 10th floor dining platform and it was fantastic. Recommend arriving 30 minutes or so before sunset and the views will be awesome."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Beautiful view of the beach, ocean and St. Pete Beach. One small elevator serving the restaurant patrons, as well as the servers and their carts bringing up food from the first floor. Service was OK, but not exceptional. Food was average at best. Prices were reasonable. Would not dine there again, but would go there to enjoy the view and the bar."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "This place is a huge joke. The food was just OK and completely overpriced. Our server was horrible. As for the view..if you are staying at the hotel you can see the same view on the beach. Nothing at all special about the view from up there. The spinning thing...no big deal either. Way overpriced, terrible service, all the fanfare about the view is just hype. Save your money. There are so so many other places nearby that offer way better food, better service and the same exact view. In a word...BOGUS. There is no kitchen on the top floor...so the food is cooked in the basement of the hotel and brought up by elevator...that is of course when the elevators are available. Drink prices are inflated as well. Many other places are far better."

  • "If you want to see the beach and the surrounding area from a revolving resturant, this was perfect. The view is breathtaking! Now the food was average. We started with clam chowder which was served warm not hot so while you were eating the soup it was cold by the time you were finished. We hand a beef and cheese sandwich which was average. I ordered a salad with salmon, and the salmon was overcooked and somewhat dry. The salad was not gourmet salad of good quality, but it was the gourmet salad that you see in Aldi food stores. I was dissappointed with the quality of the food. And of course the price was what high priced food costs."

  • "The food was great my wife had the plaza steak ny strip and I had the coconut crusted Maui Maui. The staff set us at the table where we could see the sun set right as we got there so we wouldn't miss it. Then to end dinner with a walk on the beach! Great place"

  • "Four of us had a 6pm reservation and were seated immediately. Thought our waiter was very attentive,we felt we were often looking for support staff for bread etc.. We started with the Sunset Seafood Trio which was a little small but enjoyed every bite. The salads were very fresh and the dressings delicious. My Chicken Marsala was just OK. One guest had crab cakes and the other Broiled Seafood Combination which they enjoyed. My husband, however did not like his Seafood Pasta. A woman who I assume was the manager noticed that my husband was not eating his dinner and offered him another entree. He declined. When the bill came his dinner was removed from our bill. We felt this was a very professional gesture, and will try Spinners again"
