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.

This restaurant is new to the dinner business and has some serious service and kitchen issues to resolve, but when it finally arrived, the food was good. It took over an hour for our food to arrive, two out of four dishes, and it was cold and had to be sent back. Another 15 minutes pass and our other diners... More

Apparently the 100-year-old building in Tahoe Vista where Spindleshanks was located has been condemned, so the restaurant has moved to a space at the Old Brockway Golf Course. The signs were up, but the restaurant wasn’t open. A source says that it will be just the bar at first, gradually expanding over time. Until then …

Great food, great service, very friendly staff. We went for lunch, I wanted the Oyster Bienzo, but they said it was on the dinner menu, and sometimes the afternoon happy hour app menu. We had fish tacos, and brisket sliders, they were delicious. Bloody Mary was awesome. We left for the day, I still wanted the Oyster Bienzo, so we... More

we used to go to Spindleshanks for dinner in the past, no more. not only did we wait for forty minutes to get our food but when it came it was not good. not sure if it is due to their change of location but we will not go again.

Met the owner (a very nice man), and decided to bring my family to the restaurant. It's expensive, but the food is quite good. The calamari, beer prawns and ahi tuna were excellent starters. Beautiful presentation & tasty, unique flavors. Especially the...well, all of them. Wasn't blown away by the brick-chicken (too much skin for my taste)- but I understand... More

The old location has closed, and the new location at the Brockway golf course has not yet opened. It would have been nice to indicate this on their website or on the phone message machine. We arrived after spending 20 minutes trying to find them and were told there was no set opening date.
