Exceptional breakfast after golfing 9 holes. Food was fantastic, bloody marys delicious, and service was exceptional. We enjoyed the golf course and restaurant from start to finish. Great people!! We will be back for dinner (friends said it was wonderful) and some more golf.

We had high expectations based on the reviews on this site, but were disappointed. Service was slow -- we waited nearly an hour just to order our food -- and most of us didn't like our dinners when they finally arrived. Very expensive, too.

This was a great place to eat for our family. There was no wait and easy to park. Our water was knowledgeable about the menu and cocktails. We all enjoyed our dinner and highly recommend visiting.

The service was good and the food was really good! My husband had the rack of pork chops and said it was delicious! My filet was ok...not much flavor, but the wedge salad was yummy! Overall a great meal in comparison to other places.

Went to Spindleshanks on July 4. Shocked that it wasn't that crowded, but I think most people picnic on the 4th near the fireworks. We felt very lucky as our food was absolutely delicious - and service couldn't have been better. Special fish of the...More

The food here was excellent, a varied, top quality menu, which was unexpected of a golf course restaurant! Service also excellent. Prices just a little high.
