We enjoyed great food, ambiance and service with Carol as our server. We started with the escargot on toasted baguette. They were mild and so delicious. Next we split a generous wedge salad. My entree, the Black grouper with mango salsa, was perfectly cooked and also delicious. My husband enjoyed the Seafood pasta with a spicy red sauce. It was also excellent. We finished with the chocolate cake as we are still celebrating a special birthday month. It was fun Spinning throughout the dinner. We would love to return when it is light out to see the gorgeous views or at sunset! We loved Spinners!

Frankly, this is a bit of tourist place (rotating dining and all) but you can definitely get a good meal here. And you need to know it's quite pricey and not great value dining. First, our server Carol was great. We had some hiccups ordering wine as our 1st and 2nd choice wasn't available. Alas its supply side issues. But my wife did finally end up with a lovely pinot noir. We both started with a buttered green salad. House vinaigrette was excellent. The bread that came as warm and a bit pedestrian. I had a strip steak that was prepared as requested. A small assortment of grilled vegetables came with it. I added a side of truffle parmesan fries which were superb. My wife who is vegan ordered 3 sides of different vegetables which enough to make a dinner. As it was my birthday we received a complimentary small chocolate torte for dessert. The restaurant noise level was off the charts as the place was full. We were two and a conversation over dinner was very challenging. I might suggesting going off peak in hopes the noise level is more tolerable. If you want to have a table on the rotating section, reservations way in advance are a must.

Great views of the beach and water. Service was very good. Our waiter was patient and explained the menu items clearly. This was important due to some allergies. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

I had the salmon Cesar salad and it was amazing! We had reservations and the table was ready ahead of time. The waiter was good but we felt like he was pushy and wanted to get us in and out. For a $250 meal, that was annoying. He told us the kitchen was slow so we should put our order in, but it was definitely not a slow kitchen. I also asked for the dressing on the side and it was not. No big deal but that is something that makes a difference. I ordered a gin and tonic with mint and it was delish! The windows looking out were gross and while I understand that this is a sea side restaurant, it is also one that people specifically go to to see the sunset and the area, so having filthy windows was a downer! The hostess was a friendly sweet young lady! If I went again I’d ask fora different server and would be more vocal about not rushing us.

A great dining experience to celebrate my daughter’s 21st birthday. From the time we walked in, we were greeted by the lovely hostess and handed off to our attentive server. There was a variety of scrumptious food and drink selections to choose from. Spinners is a class act and will definitely return!

Would just add lounge music, to illuminate chatting noise, and would add extra light, because it's hard to see menu, due to small print and dark background.

Loved this place!! Sea Bass and Crab Cake entrees were delicious! Also enjoyed the Creamed Spinach side dish. The service was impeccable. Food was presented in a timely manner. We really enjoyed seeing the sun go down over the gulf and people-watching. Parking was easy and accessible. This turned out to be one of our favorite restaurants.

The three of us chose meals from The Mains menu. Big mistake it was nothing more than Mac and cheese. Terrible. The waitress in training spilled cream on me. I guess everyone needs to train but it was a bit of bad luck. Only bright spot was that we went there for my moms 95th birthday and they serve a nice dish with a slice of chocolate cake, nice way to end the night.

Your kitchen couldn’t keep up with the business last night… Our food was cold and you didn’t have the type of drink I ordered in stock… Our waitress felt horrible and she did the best she could.

I completed the Circle. It took just over 90 minutes, just like the gal said it would. She did a fantastic job. So did the entire staff. I’ve been here a few times through the years, but this was easily the best time I’ve had there. Soinner’s is easily my favorite restaurant....anywhere. Fantastic. Highly recommended, especially at sunset.

Our return visit since Thanksgiving having learned of Benchmark managing: Todd and his staff are doing an excellent job: food and service level remain high as this midcentury gem gets polished (hotel lobby looks great) …what’s left? Ambiance! some tinkling tunes - think the Standards: Ella Bennett Norah Buble’ together with improved table down lighting would bring this lazy-Susan-in-the-sky ‘round as a culinary destination, marrying it to its marvelous views. I’ll be back.

This has been our favorite dress up place for special occasions and we've been there at least 5 times. Immensely enjoyed the first 4 times last night we saw a beautiful sunset in a clear blue sky, then a bit later a full moon, moonrise. Was beautiful. That was the ONLY good part of our visit. Sangria was worst we ever had, when asked about an alternative our suggestion of an Alabama slammer which we first had there about 10 years ago, we were told the bartender wouldn't know how to make that. Food prices have tripled since our last visit. $60 steak is ala-carte with NO SIDES! Salad was a 1/3 head of lettuce cut in fourths and sprinkled with a few diced vegetables and covered with a dressing of THEIR choice. No baked potato available, and steak was cooked perfectly but tasteless and served before salad was half finished. Very unhappy to see another of our favorite places terminated. We will never be back.

Spinners is an excellent choice for that special occasion or a great place for dinner with friends. It offers an outstanding view of the beach and the inlet water ways as you slowly revolve around the center of the restaurant. Carol, our server was outstanding, she made our visit very enjoyable. I'm so glad that it opened it's doors again and wish that they would also open up for lunch as well.

The ambiance at Spinners is so cool! The food was OK. My daughter's steak was cooked very good and tasted great. I had the seas bass and it was not cooked and cold inside. The meatballs for an appetizer were good as was the kale Ceasar salad. The flourless chocolate dessert was good also. I would recommend for the experience but have lower expectations for the food.

This rotating restaurant had some spectacular views of the beach. The drinks were good. We had grilled fish and scallops and they were both excellent. We had the charred Octopus and Crispy Brussel Sprouts w/ candied pork belly, both were excellent.

We were seated immediately, having made reservations. Our Waiter 'David' greeted us in less than a minute.
David was very attentive without being intrusive during the entire time we were served.
This was our first time back since you since your were closed during the 1st Covid phase. Loved the new menu
Will be back more often in the future

The filet was good as was the ravioli although I prefer them less doughy. We had salads and were satisfied with enough to eat but a dinner roll or crackers would have been nice. It was very enjoyable and the hour spin is a definite must for visitors to see this beautiful area. Drink prices were not out of line but there are a lot of restaurants that offer food choices that are not as pricey. It was worth it though.
