BUFFALO CHICKEN FINGERS!!!!

We ate at spankys for lunch. The chicken fingers were great. The waitress seemed a bit addled by the drink specials. The food was good. Try the spuds.

We ate lunch here twice while on the Island for vacation. The service was great. The food was good. The Chicken fingers and Spuds are Phenomenal. Made with their own batter. i will go back just for them. If you want a drink try the painkiller.

We went to Spanky's for dinner around 7. We walked in and there were maybe two other tables that were already eating. The hostess and our waiter were nice and made us feel welcome. However the other waitresses there were sitting around having very loud and almost inappropriate conversations. There were kitchen staff standing and talking to said waitresses. Food... More

We ate here after going to another restaurant and not getting served. We were told that it would be a 30 minute wait, and it wasn't even 10. Our server was very friendly and we didn't have to wait long for our food. Food was very good. Would go back again.

The restaurant is located at the beach,close to the pier and shops. My husband, granddaughter and self stopped in for lunch . The first thing I noticed was that decor was in desperate need of an update and appeared dingy. We were seated immediately and our drink orders taken. My husband had the chicken parmesan, my seven year old granddaughter... More

I really enjoy Spanky's. The chicken is consistently good, the staff excellent and the atmosphere good for a beach side location. You can't go wrong here.

The hot crab dip was good. Nothing was bad, but nothing was really memorable. They seemed a little disorganized (no kids menu's etc..) but, they were able to seat us (a group of 21) and for that I am grateful!

After being seated for 15 minutes, we had to ask a server who'd walked past our table multiple times if we had a server. 10 minutes later, a server came to our table. It took 45 minutes for our food to arrive. The crab cake sandwich was overcooked, charred, in fact. The bacon on the chicken club was so burned... More
