We ate here because of the dolphin excursion, we were recommended the pancakes and they did not disappoint. By brother had a burger and my friend a tuna sandwich and were not impressed. They didn’t have anything to drink other than water =\.

Spinners closed a long time ago. It reopened as a Crab Shack type restaurant at that closed too. I don't know if there are plans to reopen in the future.
