I have eaten at Spanky's many times. They have a variety of foods and everything is always good. Steaks, seafood, appetizers, everything is fresh.

We called ahead to place a to go order on our way through Orange Texas. 1) The menu online on the website is extremely out of date. Many of the items on the menu are no longer offered at the restaurant. They mostly offer barbecue and fried foods now. No more étouffée. 2) hush puppies and fried catfish were actually... More

If you're wanting some yummy boiled crawfish I recommend you eating them at Spanky's. They are cooked well and they give you extra seasoning if you want then spicier than how they cooked them. You can order either 3 or 5 lbs. The price depends on the market cost. I'm ready to go get more soon.

The food here is excellent! Very tasty. The customer service is excellent. The restaurant is rather small and is in need of a "facelift" and parking can be a problem, but the food can't be beat!

The food is mostly fried and the salad bar seemed a bit sad. Perhaps my expectations were too high. Parking lot didn't seem big enough.

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
