Revolving scenic view and service was excellent. Prices were reasonable and less than expected. While the food was good and portions were generous, it was average in taste and preparation.
When asked if my steak was medium rare or not our waiter blamed it on the lights. I thought they were overcooked he said no. I thought they were overcooked, He said if I had a normal light I will see the difference. So I took off the flashlight from my phone in my steak was not medium rare. Even though our steaks were overcooked they were still very good and well seasoned.
Both times we've been there have been excellent experiences. it is a great spot for a special occasion. Great value on the lunch menu too... to go along with a spectacular view!!
We had a wonderful time and would go back without hesitation
I often take out of town guests to Spinners to enjoy the great 360 degree view and the equally excellent food and service. My Birthday Dinner Celebration for six the evening of Friday, April 20, 2018 was quite another story. We plowed through four baskets of bread and several cocktails for an hour before our appetizers arrived. Our meal was again as long a wait. We had the entrees boxed immediately upon being served as it had been nearly two hours, we were tired, full of bread and, frankly, quite over it. The waitress was pleasant enough and we don't feel it was her fault necessarily. Management, however, was entirely unsympathetic. They did send a glass of wine to one of our party since her entree arrived cold. Too little...too late. Not sure how I feel about going back there now. It'll be a while, if ever, before I go again. So sorry too. It was one of our "stand out" places.
This was our first visit to Spinners after hearing from many friends what a great place to eat Spinners is. We decided to celebrate my birthday along with my sons birthday with a trip to Spinners. It was everything that we had heard and more ! The food, view, and service were all top notch. I can't wait to make a return trip.
We had lunch which was less expensive then their dinner menu. We have always lived going here the view is worth it.
Service excellent by Wanda.
We went there to celebrate my husband's birthday. We asked for cranberry juice as drinks. Waiter said refills were not free. That's kind of weird. Otherwise service was great.
Food is not good there. I asked for Caesar salad. It came with dressing on the side. Half od the lettuce was moldy or rancid.
But the views are exceptional. It's worth going there once a year.
We really enjoyed our dinner at Spinners. The food and service were great and the view was spectacular. Look forward to returning when we visit St. Pete Beach in the near future.
Can’t be beat for the view alone! Both the service and the food were good.
Spinners has become a go-to restaurant for my husband and me. So most recently I took my mother for her 84th birthday! She loves views, so the panorama that Spinner’s provides was enthralling. It was a beautiful evening, the atmosphere was warm and pleasant, and our server, Charles, ensured us there was no rush. So we didn’t. The quality of food is excellent and well-prepared. Good selection of wines by the glass. I asked for a little twist in my seafood pasta dish and it was no problem at all. I will definitely return and recommended to anyone looking for a unique, quality restaurant.
Very disappointed in the food experience. Since this is an expensive meal, the quality of the salads and the entrees was quite disappointing. Subsequently, it would be difficult to recommend this restaurant for anyone other than someone who would like a fantastic view.
Very disappointing this time around. We have eaten here many times before. The food had no taste, except for the clam chowder that was extremely over peppered I think they hired a new chef, that just doesn't have the menu worked out yet. We will give it another chance in a while and see what happens.
Great place for a special occasion. It has an amazing view, very romantic
Excellent service. Menu offered many delicious options. Beautiful view.
The food and service was great but to find a parking spot was horrible. My husband dropped our party off and drove around the parking lot and parking garage for 30 minutes before asking someone at the service desk for help. At that point, they had someone assist him and had him park in the parking garage in a tight space against a wall facing a “one way” the wrong way. Very disappointed. They should have parking reserved for customers with dinner reservations like we had.
Great setup, great views. service was great but not thrilled with the steaks. Way over priced with little to no flavor. Rest of the food was excellent and the drinks were fantastic.
Maybe we went on a bad night but for the price of the steaks I expected a whole lot better than they were.
Will try it again though just to be sure.
Totaled loved the revolving floor and the sights.
Meal and scenery were great but there was a mix-up with our resrvation. We had a 7:15PM reservation but were told it was for 8PM when we arrived at the restaurant. We did finally get seated at 7:15PM but it was disturbing to be told we were incorrect about our reservation time when this was untrue !!!
The views were amazing and it took about an hour to revolve all the way around! You can see the skyway bridge off in the distance and also Tropicana field. My husbands salmon was delicious, my burger was average but the sweet potatoe fries were yummy! Attentive waiter, always made sure my water was refilled, I love that! A GREAT location! We will definitely go again.
We always bring our out-of-town visitors to Spinners for lunch! Love the amazing view, service, food selection, and price.
Great place for its exceptional views as you slowly spin. Love being eye to eye with the pelicans. Food was pretty good, no complaints.
We have been coming to St Pete Beach for a few years now and ate almost everywhere and this is by far the best and classiest restaurant on the beach. The price is actually reasonable compared to the other restaurants in the area. We would highly recommend it.
We had family visiting from CT and wanted them to appreciate the beach and all of St. Pete Beach. Spinners is a perfect place to accomplish this and Spinners’ certainly provided that.
The food was pricy but mediocre and the service was slow and a bit sporadic.
I would recommend having a drink and a lite bite/ appetizer on the 11th floor and having dinner elsewhere.
The food was very good, the atmosphere was great, the place is very nice clean and you can’t beat the views, the staff was prompt and efficient, it was a little pricy but worth it
I don't see GREAT DINING up there for our comments on "What would you recommend the restaurant for?" but that mention SHOULD BE THERE FOR SURE"!
Anyways we've been there several times and this last time was with a group of 8 friends from Canada visiting and the whole dinner experience was simply fantastic as it always was and everyone enjoyed it very much......so we'll be back again for sure and pleased to recommend this restaurant for the highest standards...Thank you!
The beach view was great! The restaurant was clean and although not large, it had an “ airy” open feel. The service from the hostess desk, to our Server, Alex, was efficient and excellent! We enjoyed looking at the different geographical points that were designated on the walls of the restaurant, as the dining area slowly revolved.
Best place in Tampa to watch the sunset & eat dinner and have drinks
It is nice and different. You can revolve the entire scenic view in about an hour. You will see beautiful beach areas and the food is good. There are only four "entree" choices on the lunch menu, it has a lot more options of the fast food side (like sandwiches and alike) . The staff is courteous and there are plenty of parking. I liked the place. I will be back to check the dinner menu.
Overall great experience! Came for our anniversary (we got married at Grand Plaza) and had an amazing dinner! Food was excellent! Will definitely be back and recommend!
My daughters and I were having a girls weekend.
As always, we enjoyed the food and service. Atmosphere was wonderful for my wife's birthday!
Kitchen was SO SLOW turning out food, although the restaurant was not looking terribly busy. Waitress was poor communicator... Waitress could have cared less, almost argued with us about the time it was taking. The food was excellent, but the stressful dining experience made it impossible to enjoy. I'll come again when I have at least 2 hours.
Everything was fantastic. From the food to the service. We will be back.
Loved the scenic view and ambience here. The food was enjoyable as well.
Wonderful views of the city !
The food was subpar. My salmon was dry and my whole meal was room temperature when it got to me. Of the 6 of us no one was impressed with their dinner. Our server was adequate in taking care of us but not at all friendly or engaging. I commented when I made the reservation and when we got there that we were celebrating two birthdays. Before, during and after the meal no one said a word about it to us. Because our experience was so lackluster we decided to leave and celebrate the birthdays somewhere else. BEFORE dinner we hung out on Level 11 and had appetizers, drinks and watched the sunset. The food and our server and the manager down there were really, really good!! Big smiles, great attitude, great service, etc. We would definitely go back to Level 11 but never to Spinners. To many other great options in the area.
Have been there many times. Last visit was special occasion (3 birthdays & 1 anniversary. As usual service was great and food was excellent.
We had a great experience at Spinners! The view is unreal and the service was bananas!! Wanda was our server and she could not have been more kind and helpful. The food was very good as well, the portion size could have been better but we were plenty full after dessert.
The entrance to "11' seemed odd, the patrons had to walk in between our tables to get to the stairway to the outdoor bar.
The only other complaint and it really didn't interfere with our time is that the manager was counting money and doing receipts while sitting at the bar with the paperwork spread out all over the place.
Overall it was a great experience for my wife's bday and I would highly recommend checking it out if you're in the area.
The vegetarian/vegan options were limited. However the one dish they did have was the mushroom ravioli. It was absolute heaven! My 13 year old son loved the bacon and duck potstickers. This says a lot since he is super particular and does not like to try new foods. My husband enjoyed his steak and it was perfection. The view in this rotating restaurant was like none I'd ever seen!! The 360° was amazing and we even saw a pod of dolphins! We will definitely be back! Staff seemed a bit overworked and scant, but very pleasant and patient regardless. We are from Michigan, but we will certainly be back to Grand Plaza Resort and definitely will make a trip back to Spinners!! A MUST visit for everyone (families and romantic alike)!!
