Loved it. Great food and service! It feels like you’re flying around like Spider-Man in between the buildings. Ok not really but it was a unique view.

This was our first romantic dinner we have been together for 20 years and been married for 17 years every Valentine’s Day I would always just buy her something and some flowers now our kids are grown and some married I decided I wasn’t going to just buy her something she was always I was never romantic so I said to myself what can I do this year so I started searching the best restaurants in town in the being of January I found y’all were the best specially when it was spinning around and you can see all downtown I said yes lived here all my life never been there and then I what if I go all out and got a limousine to take us there so I did so the day came around which it was yesterday I was nervous will she like it will this make romantic guess what she loved everything thank you guys best service best food price doesn’t matter when you see your spouse as happy as she was best all my wife doesn’t speak to much English and your staff speaks Spanish 10 thumbs up thank y’all guys for the best night of our lives I hope to see y’all guys again

There are much nicer restaurants to visit for a nice night out. Spindletop is an alright place to go. But having been to places like “Tower of America” and the Seattle needle... this place just doesn’t compare. A decent time for what it is... I just wouldn’t come back or really promote this place. (We also came for Valentine’s Day... fixed cuisine choices... that might’ve had something to do with the lack of quality that one would expect for fine dining.)

It was disappointing. I mentioned that it was my birthday as well as my first time in Houston but they didn't go out of their way to make it special.

Beautiful view with good service but the food isn’t good. It’s in desperate need of renovation, the chairs the carpet and everything else looks like a buffet or something not a top notch restaurant. I was there for Valentine’s Day and we were both very disappointed!! $90 a plate, 4 cocktails and $300 later I’d never go back!!

This was my first time going to Spindletop on Valentine’s Day, overall it was a great experience, the service was outstanding and food was delicious. The cost for the dinner was a bit high but well worth the experience, will definitely return in the future.

I went for datenight, but there were 2 families were close to that had younger kids. One family let their children watch videos and cartoons the entire time and it was so loud and annoying.
The other family had younger kids and they were super loud...
Enjoyed the food, but.....

We went there for our 22nd wedding anniversary and we had an wonderful evening. Seafood order was nice, the rose pearl decorations on the table was wonderful. We loved the view as the rotation was going around. Everything was just perfect and beautiful besides my husband had dizziness from the spinning although it was slow but still. I couldn't notice but it was too much for him. Otherwise the experience of dining was awesome.

Great for a date because of the great views. Service was good. Food was just OK, Seared tuna was normal. Ordered shrimp and grits. grits were great but shrimp was tasteless (frozen) although jumbo. Recommend once but I doubt Ill go back.

Wonderful place! Servers were friendly. The food runner, Ms Booty, made out night. She was bubbly, very knowledgeable about the menu, genuine, and made the best recommendation! But if your date is afraid of heights and or sensitive to motion sickness, this would not be a good choice of dining experience. The ambiance is the kicker!

The food did not hold up to the ambiance and fine dining standards. For the prices they customers pay the menu should have way better food Choices and the better seasoning especially with the shrimp and grits....the shrimp was NOT even grilled which would have produce a much better flavor in my opinion. We were told by our sever there is a NEW chef.....well I give that NEW chef all thumbs down 👎🏾. I have been to Spindletop twice before this last visit and the food was Fantastic ! I’m not quite sure if I would return because of the lack of food choices and way the food tasted. This visit was for my Mothers Birthday. Very disappointing.🥺

The food was okay for the price. Cocktails were good. Service was great! The 360 view is great but really hard to enjoy as the light in the restaurant overshadows it

For the view, its spectacular, it does feel like youre back in the 70's.

The food is ok, but nothing amazing for the price. The service is slow, but not the fault of the servers, just didnt seem to be enough of them on the floor.

Although food is good and the view might be great for some people, wine list and wine service are not good.
There are better options for the same price.

Everything was perfect. Only problem was a screaming 8 year old & time out type parents. When you you pay $200 for a special night out you should expect a fine dinning establishment to control unruly behavior.
