Tried out the new location for brunch and was extremely disappointed. Now we had only been to the old location for dinner, never breakfast or lunch, but is was always VERY good. And while the setting on the golf course is lovely I really don't care. The breakfast was not even passable. We have eggs benedict and an omelet. No... More

Hadn't been since the move. Saw some negative reviews but went anyhow after a friend I trust said he thought they had it ironed out. He was right. Good service, good wine and good food. It was Halloween eve so it was full, Still good. Vegies were especially well done. not overcooked. Fish was fresh. Four happy diners.

My parents were in town and we were exciting to check out their new location. Spindleshank's had a great reputation before so I was eager to share it with my East Coast family. Wow, the rent at Old Brockway Golf Course must be high with the rates you are pairing your sub par food at. The food wasn't horrible, but... More

Food and service were fine. Location is ok, but I think they recently moved in and are still working on the space. Not a place for a fancy romantic dinner. Ok for decent average food.

Went to Spindleshanks last Friday night for drinks and apps. The old Spindlehshanks EXCELLED in this area. I ordered the carpacaccio. Yuck. Rubbery and served without the usual accompaniments. We waited two hours for sub-par appetizers. Everyone at my table was less than enthusiastic about the quality of the appetizers and the service. I know this restaurant can do better... More

Breakfast was filling and delicious! I ordered pancakes with sausage and eggs and everything was delicious! My husband ordered a ham, cheese, and mushroom omelette, which he really enjoyed as well. My only complaint is the prices. Each of our breakfasts were $12.00. After 2 coffees and 2 breakfasts, our bill was over $30, which didn't include the tip!

Visited the new Spindleshanks location last night with less than average dining experience. The setting is no where near as quaint as the original location, the same can be said for the food. Our first choice, the lamb special was not available. The second choice, BBQ brisket not available. Settled for a below average sweet potato ravioli dinner, we wished... More

Small, cozy restaurant with good food, healthy portions and a fair price. Extensive wine list. Great service, whether sitting inside or outside on the deck.

My family has visited Lake Tahoe and gone to Spindleshanks in each of the past six years in its former location. We used to rave about the food. Sadly, after trying the new location twice for dinner and once for breakfast, we are not going back. We are very disappointed. Even though the staff is still friendly and they try... More

This restaurant has always been a favorite and now they have moved to wonderful location, the Brockway Golf course, overlooking the Bocce Ball Court and out to beautiful Lake Tahoe. They just opened and are settling into their new location and with each visit it only gets better. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Happy hour, or Bocce Ball...go check them out.
