Great place to hang out

Excellent food and great service. We opted for the steak, and were impressed. They had great options for side orders too.

Food is good but the bar is needs to address non smokers getting choked out with smoke. The staff seems friendly and service is good.

I have been dining here for 17 years. The food is good but can be a little inconsistent. I love their fried shrimp and burgers and the Spicy Grilled Shrimp is great. Not crazy about their BBQ. The other draw back is the smell of cigarette smoke from the bar.

Since there is a bar in the back, the restaurant smells like cigarettes. Not very appetizing to me. Service is sometimes good and sometimes horrible. We just choose not to eat there anymore.

I'm not sure how to start with Spanky's. A home town favorite, no matter who you asked" where's a good place to eat?" SPANKY'S! Well, it between an Apple Bees and I don't know what, dated chairs and tables, a menu with everything so your covered. A salad bar that looks like it came out of a scene from a... More

My husband and I went there on Friday for lunch .... recommended by the front desk lady at the Hampton Inn/Orange that they have the best baked potatoes. Oh my gosh, she was SO right ... we ordered the fried chicken baked potato. Added cheese with the potato and had the chicken on the side... Also ordered a side salad... More

Didn't know where I wanted to go for dinner after over 12 hours on the road and this place was suggested by the desk clerk at the hotel. Waitress was excellent and gave me a suggestion that was the best meal (shrimp fettucini and bacon wrapped asparagus) I have had in a very long time. Highly suggest it.

Food and service is great! Fantastic Salad bar that comes with most entrees. Pasta and seafood is really good. they have a drive up take out area that makes calling ahead to bring dinner home really nice.

There is two options at Spanky's. The typical bar&grill and the family style restaurant. The spicy grilled shrimp with extra veggies were great. The alligator with asparagus was the best gator since 1962 kudo's Spanky's. Be sure to treat yourself to crab stuffed jalapeños

When we walked thru the door we could smell the tobacco smell really bad the bar area in back of the restaurant is not enclosed to keep it contained! The food is general hamburger, salad, and basket type food! They offer a salad bar but in our visit it looked wilted . So I did not try it. Refills took... More
