“A waste of $21”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

We thought we would give them a try for take-out dinner. Stephanie took my order over the phone and was pleasant and helpful. I ordered the Swordfish and Red Snapper Bowls and was told it would be ready in 10 minutes. We were very disappointed with both meals as follows: The white rice was cooked with some sort of broth or spice that didn’t taste good. The Swordfish was previously frozen, dry, and had a large piece of black fat in the middle. The Snapper was also previously frozen and dry. It was a waste of $21.

“Excellent Choice for Informal Fish Dining”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2012

I have currently eaten at Spike's on two separate occasions, both times eating a sandwich with Mahi-Mahi on one occasion, and swordfish on the other. The place is informal with seating both indoors and outside. Food is served on a plate, a welcome change from the usual cheap plastic baskets that so many places like to use. You place your order at the counter, they give you a number, which you take to your desired seating location, and they deliver the food to your table. You get to pour your own drinks, with refills, as you want. What is also refreshing, is the attitude of all the help I have had the fortunate experience to have dealt with. It is at the same time both friendly and welcoming, as well as being nonphony, and very willing to please. The quality of the meals that I have had has been outstanding; the panko breading should be tried. I fully and firmly recommend this restaurant without equivocation. Try it if you like fish in an informal, but friendly, atmosphere.
