We have reservations but a couple also came in while we were waiting to be seated and they did not have reservations but they were seated quickly.
Our special occasion was my friends birthday.
We enjoyed every minute of it! The food is a little but for once or twice a year it is a definite must do!

For the amout of money we spent, both of our entrees literally had no seasoning and my filet was so dry after i order it Medium... your talking about a $50 steak... we ordered the seafood Mac& cheese for an appetizer and that was really good not going to lie... the waitress didnt even introduce herself and only checked on us 2 times, didn’t even say goodbye. The scenery is nice, the view is beautiful but over all for our first time at Spindletop is wasn’t the best, pretty disappointing.

Took my wife here for quiet romantic dinner for my wife’s birthday and that’s exactly what we got. Food was great! I read a few bad reviews before going and almost cancelled. When I can take my wife somewhere with few distractions and just sit relax and enjoy then that’s worth a million. I’m not a hard critic but I would give 5 stars all day. Very enjoyable!! No pics because sometimes you put your phones away and enjoy communicating with the woman of your dreams. You put the phones away. Thank you Spindle Top!

We actually left before ordering anything. The hostess was completely rude and they apparently only allow the window seats for large parties. However, as we walked around the restaurant, which was at 30% capacity, we saw several window tables with 2 patrons. Why would anyone want to come to this restaurant and sit away from the window? The view is the whole point. Between the rudeness, the poor management and service, we decided to go elsewhere. I will never go here again and would never recommend it.

Worst food I have ever had. Even there salad was nothing. It had just a handful for greens with 3 cherry tomato halves and 5-6 walnuts. Their lamb chops were unedible. We left all the food uneaten. Total waste of money.

So far this restaurant has my entire family captivated. I went there with my family for Thanksgiving and it was exceptional. The menu was limited that day but it was great!!! Then we went there to celebrate 4 birthdays and everyone ordered a different courses and we shared. Honestly there wasn’t a thing we didn’t like and the service was amazing on both occasions. We are looking forward to go back to this place very soon!

Ordered surf and turf medium, came out super dry well done. 2nd plate came out, meat was gritty, not thawed out properly. The steak look like someone mushed ground beef into the shape of a fillet mignon. Surprisingly the appetizer tasted way better than entree. Super disappointed. Will not return or recommend.

Lois our server, and Michael our assistant server, were excellent. The menu was as advertised, and the food delicious. While a bit pricey, the view is excellent and we had a sunny day to see a great distance. We were grateful to have a window table on the lower level. A great way to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner.

I have been here several times. This time was just OK, and it was for Thanksgiving Lunch special menu. The food was good, but the staff brought the salad while I was still in the middle of my salad, so I had to move things around and felt crowded on the table, then they did the same thing with the main course while I was eating the salad- felt rushed.
I had 7 year old twins, and while I was happy they offered a children's menu, it was VERY limited and not great.
It was SUPER HOT in there- I know it's all windows, but so do they- it would have been nice to have it under 80 degrees.
Otherwise, good time, and good meal.
