I had a very nice time. The food was great and the ambiance was very nice. The staff was very attentive and courteous. Great for a night out with friends or a nice evening with a special person. Definitely an all purpose spot. I will go again for sure.

We had a beautiful evening, the food was ok, excellent service. Someone proposed next to us and it seems to be a good spot for something like this. The view is great, the rotation is so slow it makes you a little dizzy.
Got a special personalized dessert for our anniversary, very cute.

Overall a great experience. View was amazing, but the menu was very limited and pricey. I had the Lamb which was amazing but the meals my guest had were definetly not that good and wasn’t worth the price. The staff was amazing, I had an issue with my meal and they apologized and offered to take care of it for me. Again, great place to sit and overlook the city of Houston but they need more variety on their menu.

Great experience all around, the only thing I would have changed was to get there at 6 rather than 7 so you can watch the sunset. Food, service, atmosphere, etc. spectacular

Love the ambiance and view. The service was great. The seafood mac and cheese was very good. Would order again. The seafood pot was just ok in my opinion. The lobster tail was a bit chewy/rubbery, and the broth was a bit spicy. In a previous visit I ordered the paella which I loved! I was disappointed to hear that it had been taken off the menu. Nonetheless, I will visit the restaurant again, but order a different entree next time.

Lovely view and unique atmosphere, but unfortunately some of the worst food I’ve had. Tasted like Aramark cafeteria food. Spent $38 for a salmon entree that tasted weeks old and just had bbq drizzled on top. Severely disappointed.

We visited for my husbands birthday. The menu was limited which is okay! But the food was not as good as the price tag attached to it. The food presentation was great but the taste was below par. The Spindletop was something we wanted to try and can say we have now, but not a place I would recommend to others. If the food matched the price tag - I would rave about this place.

Fifth time at Spindletop. The first meal was really amazing a few years ago. The second was good. Since then every successive meal has been a step down to a point where I can’t justify the price versus a Landry’s Or Babin’s where the food is at least the equal but at a discounted price. Yes - the novelty of a spinning restaurant 31 stories in the air is worth something. But you could get that ambiance with a drink and then head elsewhere for something better. It is too easy to drop $200 for two people and that is just too much.

It's been along time since I have visited a high end restaurant but took this business trip to visit Spindletop. I'm sorry to say that the menu items are overpriced even for this location and view. That may explain the nearly empty restaurant on a Friday night at the dinner hour. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit and would bring along others only if the food were more reasonably priced. It's a shame that these incredible servers probably make less in tips than Denny's servers because of volume.

We enjoyed the Spindletop it was just a special date. The main Entrée was OK but the appetizer was great. I recommend it but don't expect a large of varieties on the menu or great food. I recommend it and I will go again.

Wow! What a fantastic experience!

My wife and I took her parents to Houston to celebrate their anniversary and my Mother-In-Law's Birthday. We called ahead to see if there was anything Spindletop could do to help make this a memorable night.

Adrian did a fantastic job adding some surprises to the evening! I know this is something my Mother-in-law will remember forever. She even cried when she saw the personalized message on the menu and also when she received a birthday card signed by all the staff that were working that night (those weren't the only surprises). Those extra personal touches are what really makes the night memorable and builds customer loyalty.

Also, the food was great and our server Mario was fantastic.

Thanks Adrian and all the Spindletop crew for making this a special night for my hard-working in laws! They deserve it!

The host told us it would take 20 min to get a table when we showed up with no reservations the restaurant was 3/4 empty. We then book through OpenTable which had a table within 6 min. Isn't this ridiculous?
