    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.

    Prompt and attentive service on a Monday evening. The view is wonderful even though we didn't get a sunset due to overcast skies. There are plaques giving the direction you face as the table area spins with distances to cities which were fun. The food was excellent. I had a salmon dish that was perfectly prepared. The Tuna Tartare appetizer is spectacular. The roof you pass below the windows is quite ugly, but then again, who's looking at the roof.

    All good. However, because the kitchen is twelve floors below the revolving dining room and there's only one SLOW elevator, you will wait for your food. But, with the constantly changing beach scented, gorgeous sunsets and distant city views, you really don't notice.

    Went for Dad's birthday, mostly because of the view. The food was tasty, but not anything you can't get at any restaurant on the beach, and the mixed drinks were not very good. We went for lunch because I could not get dinner reservations for 8 weeks! They were not busy at all for lunch (230-3pm) but still did not feel like service was very attentive. I don't know if I would go back, but it is nice to experience once. It seemed pricey for very basic food, you really pay for the view, and the directional cards that tell you how far away other places are.

    Fantastic view, great service and food, very comfortable, just lovely for a romantic dinner. Got reservations just a few days before our Monday night dinner for 7 pm since sunset was around 7:30. Not a very large dining room so most tables are right at the windows, giving everyone incredible views for miles. The ugly roof that reviewers are referring to is not the dining room ceiling; it is the rooftop of the hotel that you sometimes see out the windows, and our waiter assured us that this will be repaired soon. Once it is dark all you see are the lights of the beachfront and off into the distance on the mainland. Perhaps slightly pricier than other places for the food but the view is priceless!

    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.

    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.
