“Crab Cakes or "Breadcrumb Cakes" ?? & Poor Service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

We stayed on St. Pete Beach for Spring Break. Should have taken our time to ask some locals for the best seafood place on the beach. We found "that place", just down the street our 2nd nite but, it wasn't SPINNER's. Not sure what was worse, our server or the food. Server greeted us (after our drinks were delivered) with "It's going to be at least 45 minutes to an hour before you will get your food. We are cooking for 2 locations tonight and we are very busy." If we hadn't just received our drinks, we would have left. Server honestly needed to be working at Chili's or Applebee's. Everything we asked for (bread, water, lemons, etc.) she forgot as soon as she left our table!!?? It was only when she passed our table, did the lightbulb go off. We LOVE crabcakes and can quickly tell a good one from a disgusting one. The key word is "CRAB". Their crabcakes are nothing more than breadcrumbs and very little crab. Waste of money and we didn't even bother eating. Just plain GROSS. The grouper was flavorless and overcooked. Nothing more irritating than having the food delivered to table and the server never comes back to check on you!! She clearly paid more attention to a larger party that would obviously generate a larger tip. By the time she came back, another server cleared our plates containing the bulk of our food. We honestly couldn't wait to leave.

“mediocore food, great view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2012

We went here thinking it would be more casual. Once we sat down, my kids were so excited with the view-we had to stay. The service was okay, not great. Had to ask twice for water and waited for drinks-salad didn't come until right before main course. The view was great and my boys (13 and 11) loved it. Our food was just okay. Not terrible, but not great.

“An excellent experience in St Pete Beach!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2012

My family is from Auburn, Indiana. We recently ate dinner at Spinners on our last day of spring break. We ate there last year as well and as long as we visit St Pete Beach, we will continue to eat there. The views and the food are spectacular and our girls love the revolving rooftop. It's a must do if you are visiting the area!!

“rooftop dining”

Excellent meal and service. My only negative was that no reservations were taken. This was an 80 th birthday celebration and it would have been nice if we knew we had a table ahead of time.
