Iconic Restaurant that no longer treats its faithful customer’s right. They start you out with a list of rules that they have to read to you No Refunds, No send back or changing orders, Automatic gratuity, Credit Card fees, time limits on dinning, etc. For...years we usually celebrate one of our co-workers and friends birthdays at Spondivits it has now come to an end. I once had a party of 8 and we were asked to leave after 2hrs. We did not like it but we understood because they had a waiting list. The place has gotten expensive and the Fun to Value ratio is gone. We were charged 1.95 for asking for a little extra old bay seasoning for the calamari. This time we spent over $400 total. We brought 10 drinks @ $17 each and have been faithful customers for years. I accidently spill my drink that they had just brought to the table and the manager would not bring me another drink on the house. Thank You for the Good times and So Long, we are done here!More

Took 15 minutes to figure out where to drive to get to parking lot. Then realized it’s only valet. We had a dog in our car and didn’t want valet so we went across the street to Malones.

I've been dining here for almost 10 years. 10 years ago, it was a treat to come here, now it's just a place to go to get told no, and to be treated as if they don't value my business. This place was one of...the best crab spots in Atlanta, with lines out the door to the adjacent McDonalds, vying for a spot to get in to eat the amazing crab meals. Now it's just a shadow of itself. My server told me that business is off by a substantial amount. My prediction is that this legacy, historical restaurant will not be around in 2-3 years, because it's relying on an old, outdated model from the past for its patrons. They simply don't care. I asked for a plate to put my crab on, and they refused, stating that the kitchen controls the plates. I guess the kitchen will be responsible for the failure of this iconic restaurant. They have lost their way. My snow crab was cold and soggy - to anyone that knows crab that means that they served me crab that had been sitting in hot water for who knows how long. Everything was overpriced and underwhelming. Save your money and go somewhere else.More

The food was horrible. I ordered the ultimate combo. It had no taste and the breading fell off when I dipped it into the cocktail sauce. It was over cooked on some of it and under cooked on the other. It tasted like it was...frozen. The only good thing was the staff they were all very friendly. I didn’t complain to the waitress because the food was so bad and I didn’t feel like it would have done any good. I actually got sick later that night and threw up in my hotel room. I would not eat here and would never go back the place was dirty. The music was so loud it gave me a headache. I could not hold a conversation with my brother who was sitting across from me. DO NOT EAT HERE!!!More

First you have to valet park even though they move your car 10 feet and you still have to walk to your car. The menu prices listed here are a fraction of the actual prices. The fish sandwich is $33! Plus they still charge you...more than the listed price on the menu. Plus an up charge for credit card payment.More

I loved this place however their prices have gotten out of control. 1. 2 of eating not a group and they automatically add 20% gratuity. 2. For myself only (drink was water) my ticket was $115. 3. This is not a 5 star restaurant, an...old rundown building. I am not from Atlanta ate there a few months ago my ticket was $88ish. Same food with alcoholic beverages. I thought that was expensive but the bar tender and atmosphere were good and wanted to go back. Well sad to say that was my last time. Most people can not afford that.More

Where do I start! facility is small and cramped. SERVICE was horrible, our server would disappear for a long time then show back up and act like she had just left our table. I should have known not to eat here when they make it...a point to post that they will not give a refund for no reason at all and then after you place your order they go over that policy again. Oh and wait there's more, if your bill is over $50 they will automatically add a gratuity to your bill which means they don't have to offer you good service because they will get a tip anyway. All 3 orders came out wrong and messed up and the server decided to blame the cooks since their computer system was down. lol You took our order so you knew it was wrong when you brought it out. There is nothing special about this place at all, it's just expensive for no reason. I don't even right review but this place was so horrible I had to.More

I use to love this restaurant. It was on the pricey side, but the food was very good and I looked forward to coming here whenever I was down near the airport. The prices have skyrocketed and the quality of the food has declined. My...favorite item on the menu was the chowder. It use to be very creamy and hearty. Maybe it is prepared differently, or maybe the chef had a bad day, but on this day, it was not very thick and was almost flavorless. I had to put extra seasonings and hot sauce in to finish it. At $25/bowl for the chowder, and $40+ for two mediocre crab cakes, I think I’ve had my last meal at Spondivitz. On the plus side, our server was extremely nice and attentive… but there policy of adding a mandatory 20% tip on any bill greater than $50 didn’t sit well with me, so I chose not to tip above that amount.More

The Shark Platter is over $40, but well worth it. It may have been more than that. I took a group of six in there, and we had 4 buckets, and a couple of rounds of beer, and the tab was $300. Again, well worth it.

It's mostly seafood. I am not a vegetarian so I don't know. Maybe look and see if they have a menu on their website.
