Wonderful scenic views 360 from location....gorgeous day and night. Moves very slowly, about 50 mins. to make one rotation...so no worries if someone is concerned about getting dizzy or disoriented...you do not notice the movement at all.

The menu is a bit pricey, food delicious, although, my ribeye steak was a bit grizzly and asked the waiter to let the chef know. Thought the waiter might have comp'd one of our desserts, but didn't ask. For price of meal, I did expert the steak to be superior quality and it was not. My husband had scallops and large shrimp and it was delicious, cooked perfectly. Relaxing, romantic, waiter took his time with us, no rush....ended up being a 2.5 dinner. Oh, and the house salad dressing is absolutely delicious!

The staff texted to confirm our reservation and we were able to get in earlier. The view is terrific. The food is good, but not great. My wife asked for extra vegetables instead of pasta. While she got no pasta, she got less veggies than I did. We'd be willing to spend more on higher end Pinot Noirs. The staff was attentive, although my water glass emptied a few times before refills were offered. The place holds special meaning to us, so we'll likely return. However, for the price, there are better values out there. Without the novelty of the revolving restaurant and the associated views, the food itself wouldn't inspire a return visit.

We were visiting St. Pete Beach and saw this restaurant from the street. We were lucky enough to get a reservation for Valentine’s Day. We had heard mixed reviews on the food but this evening we both thought the food was great. My wife had mahi-mahi and I had a salmon dish and we found both to be outstanding. The view was fantastic and this restaurant revolves and we were fortunate to be on the side of the restaurant to see the sunset. It was perfect.

Our server, Sean, was great. He was very attentive even though every table was full. It was a really memorable Valentines Day Dinner. 5 Stars all around.

Overall, good experience. My wife's dinner selection was good... steak, however, my selection was not as listed in menu. The seafood pasta dish had limited seafood and was heavy on the sauce. The scallops for an appetizer was excellent. The waiter we had forgot to serve us bread until we asked, and was not very attentive. Would return because of the ambiance.

We were seated immediately upon arrival. LeAnn, our server, immediately greeted us with water and told us about the specials. Then she quickly took our drink orders. She gave us sufficient time to review the menu before asking for our order. LeAnn kept refilling our tea and water glasses. Most ordered sandwiches; we had the chicken bacon Caesar salad and key west chowder. Both are scrumptious. (In fact I’ve been here about 10 times and I never order anything else!!) The food arrived in short time. She checked back several times to see how we were enjoying our meals. LeAnn is the best server we have as anywhere in years!! The only downside was that it was noisy, but that’s what we expect every time we come here to dine as it is such a wonderfully popular place.

Horrible staff and service. Sat down and placed drink orders, didn’t even want to order food because he was so unprofessional and did not feel welcome from when we arrived and sat down. This was second visit and horrible experience from first visit thought we’d try again 2nd visit and still no changes. Perfect view with crappy service.

Our out of town guests arrived late because they got lost but they were still able to accommodate us a bit later for lunch. Also, at the last minute we found out we had 5 instead of 4 and thankfully the staff was very nice and were able to honor that request, as well. We all ordered something different and we all enjoyed our meals. I had a grouper sandwich with a side if fruit. I love lunch at Spinners because you have a choice of sides with your sandwich instead of just fries. It was a gorgeous sunny day and the view from this restaurant is second to none in St. Pete Beach. It's the perfect spot to take out of town guests but we locals love it, too.

Great food, service and atmosphere was amazing.
The only downfall was there were 2 large parties that were seated near us.
They were very loud,and slightly annoying. One of the parties were a group of men who were definitely served to much alcohol. But the waiter did a great job on asking the one gentleman to please quiet down.
I️ would still return. But it might be better to put big parties in a private room or outside.

Although the view was beautiful, it was very loud and the food was good, but nothing special. We had the filet mignon and it was done as we ordered. One of the best parts of the meal was the salad, which was included. It had dried cranberries and mandarin oranges on it, which was quite refreshing. The wine list was adequate, but again not really special. The one positive was that we did not feel rushed. Probably the best thing we did was to arrive early and go to the rooftop bar to have a cocktail and watch the sunset. The view was magnificent! We should have eaten there.

Go to Spinners for the view of the gulf, the beach, and St. Pete Beach. I went for a late lunch/early dinner at 3pm when the prices were more reasonable. The dessert was a decadent cap to the experience.

Our meal at Spinners was wonderful. The view from atop this hotel is amazing. It is a great place to watch the gorgeous Florida sunset. Then as you enjoy your delicious meal, the restaurant is slowly spinning to get a view of the ocean, beach and surrounding beauty of St. Pete beach. We have enjoyed this restaurant every time with travel to this area. It's a great dining experience. The food is always great. I ant say enough about the delicious crab cakes! Our waitress was very attentive to all our needs and we enjoyed our evening at Spinners very much. I highly recommend!

We visit the Grand Plaza and Spinners at least once a month and have always been beyond satisfied but this time was a different story. Change of menu to what is advertised with not so many choices, the fish was under cooked on both my wife's meal and mine, much smaller portions, badly presented food, "can't be bothered waiter", rude staff on the desk.......disappointed as this was a birthday trip for my wife and will not go back for a while with the hope it changes back to how it was.

Wife and I have dined at Spinners many times over the past 16 years when visiting St Pete. The main reason for coming here is the delightful view of the area from 12 floors up, and subtle change of view as the room revolves. Dinners have been consistently fair, drinks typically generous if you are a manhattan or martini fan, and service always pleasant. The newly renovated rooftop, now known as Level 11, looks worthy of exploring, which we did not, as the February 3 evening was too cool. For the restaurant, this is the place to go if you want a pleasant dining experience but can temper your expectations on what is offered on the menu, where quality and savory-factor of food served is modest, but other factors very pleasing indeed.

We had reservations and were seated quickly though it took a long time for a waiter to get to us. The gluten free pasta was of poor quality. The view was the best part of going to this restaurant as our timing allowed us to see the sunset and once set we began to see the lights of the city.
