All kinds of good stuff... Steaks, seafood, Mexican, and American foods on the menu ... I've had most of the items, and they were all good ... Great place that can accommodate a larger party or crowd easily ... they have a GREAT steam table line at lunch time ...

The restaurant is far bigger than it looks. It has a rustic feel with painted brick walls and a brick floor. Our server initially misunderstood most everything we ordered, confusing our conversation about traveling with "to go." Surprisingly, our orders were served correctly. The portions were huge and having a refrigerator in our room and traveling with a cooler kept... More

We don't go to Spanky's looking for quality food..We go there for a good hamburger..It's an older place that could use some 'freshening up' especially in the interior. Still had a good hand-pressed hamburger & onion rings and hubby had the taco salad. I can only speak for my burger and I'll visit Spanky's again when I'm hungry for an... More

I really like going to Spanky's. The salad bar is very fresh, and I LOVE the mushroom swiss burger. Honestly, I've never had anything here I didn't like. If you don't like smoke, don't sit too near the lefthand side, because they do allow smoking back there.

Ate at Spanky's this weekend with family. The salad bar is very good with lots of options. Chicken fried steak was very good as well, ordered asparagus with it, it was kind of tough, really to thick. Waitress was slow and she picked up the check off the table before we left.

Large salad bar but the food on it was not fresh. Flies landing on our food, and the smell of the smoking section even in the non-smoking area. Very disappointing! WIll not go back!

Went to Spanky's as our first choices don't open on Mondays -worth phoning ahead if you want to eat on a Monday! We didn't so wasted a bit of time before finding Spanky's. Happy accident as we had excellent food, very friendly staff and a very reasonable price. Would definitely go again.

I'm really picky about my seafood. We all had combination plates, and it was really fresh and good. We will be back when we are in the area again
