Diner Reviews
  • "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..."

  • "What a find! We were thrilled with our evening there. The view of the sunset and the surrounding area was stunning. The waiter was top notch, as was the food. A must for anyone visiting the St Pete Beach area."

  • "We ate here for lunch a month ago. We were back to St. Pete beach this month and decided to book dinner. Once again it did impress. The food is very good from appetizer, through the entrée to dessert. The view is beyond compare. Bobby was our waiter again and he is very good at his job. He took great care of us."

  • "The restaurant needs to be updated. The food was mediocre, at best. It was very loud and the service was slow. The only thing we liked was the view...but two of the windows were either dirty or needed to be replaced."

  • "Beautiful view but the food was horrible and the waitress was horrible. She never asked if we needed anything and after dinner just gave us the check even though we still wanted cocktails. I would not recommend this place."

  • "I absolutely love this rest. I took an out of town guest and although the food was excellent, our service was not very good, it took too long for the server to come to the table he took our food order right away before even asking if we wanted a drink, he was sweating quite a bit and running around like a chicken without his head."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Reservations are a must! If you walk up off the street, you'll likely wait a very long time to eat or won't get a table at all. For the ideal view, time your dinner for about 45 minute to an hour before sunset. We read many reviews before we made our reservation, and plenty of people rave about the food while others rate it as average, so we were apprehensive about the food but decided to go for it anyway because of the view. So here's the deal: the quality of the food is approximately the same as a place like Longhorn steakhouse but $5 - 10 more per entree. In the end, we didn't mind paying their prices since the view was truly awesome. If we go back, we'll just go and linger over drinks/dessert and go somewhere else for dinner."

  • "The ambiance of the restaurant speaks for itself, but the food is also top notch! The shrimp cocktail appetizer was the firmest, and freshest I've ever had, and the Ahi steak was rare (as I requested), and well topped with pepper and sesame. My dining partner had Filet Mignon, topped with bacon and Gorgonzola; YUM! We were there for an hour and a half, and got to enjoy two complete rotations of the restaurant! Excellent, and we plan to go back again!"

  • "Server Tracey very kind and patient, helped take pictures the different views during sunset, in addition to being a great server. Food very good, spinach artichoke dip was a great starter, didn't feel rushed through the evening."

  • "I celebrated my birthday here with my husband. Everything was great. I was looking to just have a nice piece of grilled fish which really wasn't available on the menu, however they made me a piece of grilled Grouper that was out of this world."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "We chose this restaurant because of its location, then were doubly pleased that the food was so good. The Steak Imperial (a filet topped with crab meat and hollandaise) was done to perfection! The view encompasses not only St. Pete Beach but the Intracoastal Waterway, Sunshine Skyway and downtown St. Petersburg. The staff were attentive without being obvious and made us feel very welcome. We plan to go another time with more of the family!"

  • "This restaurant sits at the top of a hotel and gives a breathtaking view of St. Pete's beaches and surrounding areas. It revolves slowly to give you a full 360 view. The tables are all situated at the windows so you miss nothing. The food was a very good portion and cooked well. The service was great."

  • "That was the worst food I've had in a long time. The appetizer special for that night were grouper bits. They tasted like frozen fish sticks! I doubt it was even grouper. For dinner I had the coconut crusted mahi mahi. Although the fish itself tasted ok, the coconut crust was very over cooked. There was absolutely no coconut taste, just a burnt flavor. The inside of the restaurant could definitely use a remodeling job. The mirrors need to go. I felt like I was riding a carousel at an amusement park. The only good thing about the place is that ot has a decent view. Its overlooking the beach the weather that night was awesome and the sunset was gorgeous."

At 12 floors up, you have a panoramic 360 degree view of St. Pete Beach, with both the gulf of mexico and the intercoastal in view. Try to go at sunset for an extra special time! The food was delicious. We had the crab cakes as an appetizer and they were delectable. Can't say enough about our incredible dining experience at Spinners!"

  • "We made our reservation earlier in the evening (6:30) and arrived about 10 minutes early. We were seated right away, which was very nice. I ordered the cheese plate appetizer. It was very nice with quite a bit of variety. I ordered the parmesan salmon, hubby ordered the filet, and our 14 year old had the grilled chicken fettucine. All were quite good. (DH's filet was enormous and cooked perfectly!) The view was fantastic! Beautiful St. Petersburg for 360 degrees. I was glad we had the appetizer before our meal to give me a bit of time to get used to the moving. I would go again when we get back to St Pete!"

Let me get the negative out of the way.--The noise was positively deafining we couldn't even hear each other speak. --Our waiter Rick was fabulous as was the food. We enjoyed everything from our drinks to our wonderful dinners. This was our 3rd visit to Spinners and we will try again to see if the noise calms down."
