Spinnerstown Hotel is a restaurant serving rustic local cuisine in Quakertown, Pennsylvania. The dining areas of are divided into 3 parts. The first is a casual soapstone bar and wooden booth-lined taproom, with 18 rotating beers on tap and a simple, rustic atmosphere. The second is a handsomely homey dining room (sans TV) complete with a fireplace, stone walls and hand painted ceiling. The third is an outside barn-like deck with vaulted ceilings. The cuisine is simple farmhouse fare, but with its own modern twist. Diners will find house-made burgers, Belgian-style mussels and hearty entrées like the in-house butchered boneless rib eye or hand rolled gnocchi. In addition to these standards, the menu is constantly under development, using fresh, seasonal ingredients to consistently create new dishes. An exceptional beverage selection encompasses a value-driven wine list, hand crafted cocktails, a legendary beer program, and a temptingly stocked bottle shop.

The meal was amazing, the service was exceptional by our waitress. The only issue was they were aware we had a reservation but seemed to have trouble seating us. I guess they sat too many walk ins and didn't allow enough time for them to be finished. Still a great night!

The Spinnerstown Hotel NEVER disappoints! The food is amazing and our server, Megan, was professional, informative and delightful. We had the twin petite filets and the red crab with pasta - both were delicious! The chocolate expresso mousse is to die for as is the peach cream pie. The Spinnerstown is our favorite restaurant!

My wife had Salmon entree she very much enjoyed. I had Chicken Croissant sandwich - chicken was dry / overcooked.

We ate outside in loft area. Extremely noisy from traffic below, not what I would call "energetic". Did not appreciate.

Service was good.

Dinner entree selection seems limited. Prices high. Unless one is a beer drinker, I would not recommend to a friend.

We introduced one of our friends to this fabulous restaurant and she was totally blown away with the menu choices, the quality of the food and the venue. We got one of our favorite boots which made the meal even more enjoyable. Our server Megan, couldn’t have been any nicer, friendlier or more accommodating with all of our requests. She was absolutely fantastic all evening !

We always enjoy going to Spinnerstown but the service was a bit slow. I think many restaurants are experiencing the same thing though. Hopefully the next time it will be better.
Still has the best onion soup, Filets and key lime pie!!!

We came for dinner net because we were in the area. The food was great except the sirloin was too saturated with a thick sort of gravy and very salty. Everything was delicious and service was fantastic! We will be back!

Our waitstaff was very entertaining and properly attentive. We weren't rushed at anytime throughout the evening. Our food was plentiful and delicious. I ate too much and had to take home part of my free-range chicken dinner and a very delicious peach creme pie.

We ate here last night for the first time. The service was a bit slow, and at no time did our waiter check on us other than to deliver our orders. The food was hit or miss. My spouse enjoyed a sausage sandwich and sweet potato fries. I had a good salad, although the ahi tuna was clearly the frozen variety from a grocery store. The swordfish was cooked to the point of being mushy, and the entire dish was overly salty. We will not be returning soon.

Been going here on and off for years. Hadn’t been there for a while. Had late lunch/early dinner with my daughter. Food, service and atmosphere were awesome - just as I remembered it. We split a lemon herb crap cake and a shrimp app. Crap cake was pan seared perfectly seasoned and garnished with a chipotle roasted corn relish. Astoundingly good. The shrimp app was also excellent but wasn’t the crab cake. Lol. I had a the mushroom cheese burger medium rare. Very nice and cooked to temp. The roll was great, fresh and lite. My daughter had the pork sandwich. It was excellent with just the right amount of tangy zesty BBQ sauce. Incredible and extensive beer selection and an equally great variety of bourbon and scotch. Such a welcomed change from places with two or three bottles of lower level product. I enjoyed the Yamazaki 12. Lastly, bartender was awesome and the atmosphere was great. Like being back in the neighborhood at the corner tavern. Love this place!

The Irish onion soup is my husband's favorite. Best he has ever had and #1 in his book.
But everything else is wonderful also. Chicken cheese steak - Croissant with grilled chicken, peanut butter pie all +++++++++++.

Such a quaint, cute place, and I was excited to dine here for the 1st time for my birthday. The Irish Onion soup and apple dumpling were delicious and my husband enjoyed the salmon. The only negative comment I have is being stuck at a drab little table right next to the bathroom during a very busy evening. There were endless people coming and going constantly and it interrupted many of our conversations. We’ll definitely visit again, I just hope we will have a better placed table.

As usual, excellent food preparation. Entrees are limited in number to about 6, fairly simple preparations without lavish sauces or accompaniments, but very well prepared. Entrees include a salad. Very good beer and wine list. Only criticism is that diners seated in the lounge/bar room are subject to rock music - too loud for dinner - and TV's which destroy any attempt at ambience for sophisticated dining and creates a mismatch between fine dining and a casual/bar atmosphere. Our experience now that covid is lessening, is that most restaurants are struggling to find their way back to where they were before covid began. This restaurant seems like they haven't skipped a beat.
