We enjoyed the quiet romantic ambience, the food was delicious but very pricey. We loved the creme brulee and the peach lemonade. We were seated promptly and with courtesy. The bad things are, it is surrounded now by skyscrapers on about 60% of its rotation so you do not even see the sunset. The restroom is accessed by walking a flight of stairs. Overall for a once in a life time experience it is worth it.

I wrote in the notes it was Klaos’s birthday. They asked what the occasion was when we got there and asked if we were celebrating anything special. Wanted the dessert to be a surprise.

Spindletop is a neat concept, but has the feel of a tourist-trap, complete with pricey food, difficult reservations, rushing staff. View is great, food was decent, but it wasn't a place I wanted to stay and have a good time, and would not go back. Although a few other tables were certainly enjoying it. Likely a good place for a birthday, maybe a first date.

We've always seated next to windows in moving restaurants-this was our first visit to this one-they sat us in the upper section not next to the window. Not sure if this was the reason, but I began to feel dizzy. The chicken's skin was blackened....it made it taste delicious! Made me feel better :).
Our waiter was very nice. One thing, no Sweet and Low :(

The quality and taste of the food was subpar for the price. I could not believe that a wine and alcohol tax was added to my bill. We ordered 3 drinks and the wine and alcohol tax was $36 in addition to the cost of the drinks. I will not go back.

I’m sorry but I’d like to be honest and it doesn’t complete with the tower of America’s in San Antonio. Was quite disappointed in the food and for the price I expected a little better quality since I paid 200 dollars at spindletop and I paid 160 at the tower of America’s. Thank you for your time

It’s always fun to dine in a rotating restaurant. The food was good...not great. The service was very good and the view was amazing. You are paying for the view so you understand that not everything else needs to be the best....just good. I recommend but not overly enthusiastically.

El dia que hice la reservación Yo hice la petición que después de la cena trajeran como sorpresa un pedazo de pastel de feliz cumpleaños para mi esposo pero No lo hicieron , la mesera me pregunto sobre el postre enfrente de mi Esposo y arruinó la sorpresa que yo tenía para el, tuve mala experiencia!

The steak was over cooked and dry. The read for Mac n cheese was good but not plentiful for the price. The rack of lamb was good but the potatoes and green beans were cold and tastes old. Over all I won't be returning. Spindletop is over rated. Too expensive for cafeteria quality food. I should have just went to Perry's steakhouse.

Even though I gave an overall 5 stars, there is one point of contention that I have that I believe would make Spindletop even better. They need to not have such a seafood-centric menu. I know this may be what they have been all about for a long time, and I know they advertise it as a seafood restaurant, but I think it's time for a change. I would like to see a menu with less than 50% seafood.

Other than that, this restaurant may be the best kept secret in Houston.

When we were seated, we were asked if we were celebrating anything special - a nice touch as most restaurant servers initially as for a bar order. Although the selection is very limited, we did enjoy some of the offerings. The tomato chowder was fair, but the romaine salad was unique and very tasty. We chose the seafood pot for one (the only entree not subject to the $9 plate sharing charge). It was fantastic, and the portion was extremely generous; we couldn't finish it. Spicy and wonderful. Since we were celebrating my birthday, I was presented with a small cupcake with candle after the meal. A nice touch. Service was mediocre at best. No fresh pepper was offered, and no shakers were on the table. I had to get up to find someone to bring me pepper. All in all, it was a nice experience, and we certainly would return if we are ever in Houston again. A more extensive menu would be appreciated.

Great service , great ambiance , great views , Terrible food I ordered, not worth 40$. Do no recommend the shrimp and lobster ravioli, sauce was salty , ravioli wasn’t fresh I’m sure they came frozen so reheating made it taste like cardboard , shrimps and scallops were tiny and not fresh either . Desserts and drinks were great

Me and my friends went and dinned there for my birthday. Overall it was a great experience. The one thing I had a little issue with was our server kept forgetting things. Since it was a special night for me, I wasn't going to say anything. The view we had made up for him forgetting things. All in all it was a good experience.

The Spindletop Restaurant is a magnificent place to see Houston. The view is amazing and since the entire dinning room revolves, you always have a different view. The food is outstanding and the presentation spectacular. The host and wait staff are extremely courteous and provide great service. Valet parking is complementary with your visit to the Restaurant. I highly recommend visiting this restaurant.
