I have never ever been so disrespected ever at a restaurant like I was at The Spin-A-Yarn! I was waiting to be seated at the outdoor podium station and Saki who is apparently the owner took the people behind me with no recognition at all...to me-and started to seat the other party. I get it maybe regulars this place reeks of nepotism favoritism and even allow smoking cigars in the tent while people are eating. When I requested a seat away from the speakers he said he was seating that couple first at the table I requested. I didn’t even have time to explain why I wanted that table because it was the quietest away from these big PA speakers they have setup which were entirely too loud for a fine steak house. I requested the table because I get over stimulated by loud music due to a Vestibular disorder which can make me dizzy . I did mention I was before the couple he was seating. His response “if you don’t like it you can just go out on the street” I thought he was kidding at first but he wasn’t. I was not disrespectful in any way. “I commented you don’t have to treat me or speak to me in that that way. This behavior as a restaurant owner is unacceptable. Of course I left will never go back. BTW their food is really not that good certainly for the price. Go somewhere else to support your local business.More

Spin-A-Yarn always does a stelar job of decorating for the Christmas season, As such, we went there for a holiday meal. I enjoyed salad, pork chop and apples with mashed potatoes. For dessert had Gran Marnier berries. Yum. My husband enjoyed his dinner of salad,...salmon, vegetables and mashed, and tiramisu. Dinner comes with tasty rolls. For our beverages I had sparkling water, and decaffinated green tea with dessert. My husband enjoyed a glass of wine and coffee. Service was great. Parking is free. Place was busy, so we called for reservations in advance.More

Had a family dinner there for one weekend ‘s night and so disappointed. Pricy but mediocre at best. Fleming or Morton are way better.

This is a great place to eat. I eat here whenever I am at this location.The food is very good and the service is excellent. Actually, there are few places with this level of service. Nice atmosphere too. If you want to enjoy a good...meal and jut relax and be well cared for - this is the place.More

This steakhouse is a great change from today's calculated, polished chain restaurants. It's privately owned and the emphasis is on the experience. They have excellent servers, candles, white table cloths... Very nice. It's where I like to go for special family occasions. The prime rib...and rack of lamb are my favorites, it's also fun to have a martini or Moscow mule and know it will be done right. The bar is more casual but also a good experience. Highly recommend!More

Had lunch there with a buddy who eats there frequently. I was blown away with the quality of the meal. I had a salad, which was very fresh and flavorful, and then Dover sole in a lemon garlic butter sauce. It was the best fish...that I've had in a long time! The key lime pie for dessert was great too. I'll be going back, for sure.More

Had the pleasure of speaking at this venue for about 25 people. Long, narrow banquet room with built-in stage and screen. Excellent menu, food and service.

I was there for a small dinner with friends. The restaurant appeared large enough to have a room for a larger group. I would call the restaurant directly to check.
