Spindletop Ratings and Reviews

We decided to go here for 25th wedding anniversary and wow that was a big mistake. All I can say is that servers should be trained better for a nice restaurant. It was bad enough that the dinner was comped. Won't return and will never recommend to anyone I know.
The manager was great and expressed the restaurants regrets for not making it a better experience.

Spindletop was absolutely worth the trip! She had the rack of lamb, I had the beef filet. Both were very well-cooked, even though cooking lamb well is not an easy task. Since it was her birthday, the staff prepared a small cheesecake dessert plate for her with a chocolate "Happy Birthday" banner on it. They also included a birthday card, signed by everyone. I'm gluten-free, and my waiter was very knowledgeable about the food. He even surprised me with a plate of gluten-free bread, which was not on the menu. I highly recommend this place!

My wife and I had a date night. Dinner and Theatre afterwards. The view was unique and fantastic. The prices on the entrees we reasonable around 40ish, sides included. Since we were going to the theater, we could not save leftovers, so we didn't want to over order. We decided to split the special which was 14oz sirloin with 2 grilled shrimp and get the scallops appetizer. The steak wasn't anywhere near 14oz, maybe 8-10oz pre cooked, about 1/2" thick. A bit under-seasoned, which isn't a big deal, just add salt and pepper. Scallops were $18 for 3. $6 each. Scallops and shrimp were pretty good. Did not expect the special to run $75, our fault for not asking, but it wasn't "$75 good". Possibly $50, maybe $55. Just seemed overpriced especially since it wasn't anywhere near 14oz.
Listed it as recommend purely on the view ... But beware the overpriced special.

Great view and a wonderful experience. It's something different than your everyday go to spot. I loved everything about spindletol except I ordered a medium rare filet and it was one the most bland steaks I've had. I'll go back for the view and perhaps the fish next time!

Went there for a date/Birthday dinner and had a great time. The server understood that we wanted to be left alone and put us on our own and checked on us at regular intervals instead of constantly. Overall a great place for occasions and I would go again.

It is mainly a seafood place. They should expand the menu since this restaurant is the only one in Thr Houston area and everybody wants come, including those who do not have preference for seafood.
Pros - Great atmosphere, fun to watch rotation of restaurant, excellent staff and service, Andy great food.
Cons- While food is good, it is way too expensive and does not match its price. Two people who get main course, desert, and maybe appetizers or drinks can easily reach price of $130+. Also expand the menu options

Honestly, my party of three felt the restaurant is overrated. The food was okay, but not a place to go if you don't like seafood. The beef filet was cooked perfect, but had zero flavor...not even salt and pepper. We will not go back as I felt it was not worth $192, for 3 people. The view is exceptional and our waiter was good so that made our trip to Spindletop enjoyable.

Very nice place to be at along with the complimentary valet. My experience was very nice from the food and hostess staff, waitress was a bit inattentive but the food was still great and my date had a nice time. I was amazed by the chef who came to our table and asked us if everything was which left me with a lasting impression. This will be my go to spot for a nice evening out in the town and i want to thank everyone in your staff for making it a very nice experience.

Best bang for your buck.
Exquisite as always, 3rd time coming and won't be the last. $40 for a filet with sides, most steakhouses are $40+ and sides are extra. The ambiance is hands down the best in Houston you cannot get better.

Took my girlfriend here and she loved it, so did I. The service was great. All of the staff were pleasant. All had warm welcoming smiles on there faces. The chef came out and greeted us and all! Great place to dine a date while spinning in the nights Skies above downtown above downtown Houston.. Go check this place out if you haven't already!

The wife and I shared our tenth wedding anniversary dinner. We had a terrific time. I had been at the Spindletop since it opened back in the seventies. It was still as modern today as it was back then. They have done a good job at keeping it classy. Our waiter was very nice and professional. The chef came out and spoke to us. It was a magical marvelous evening!

First time at the restaurant. We selected it mainly because of its novelty, which was of particular appeal for some out-of-town guests. The view really is pretty cool. Because we visited at Thanksgiving, the menu was basically a prix fixe, and the food was ample and acceptable. I don't think anyone thought their meal was transcendent, but for what it was, everyone was happy. Given the fact that this was a holiday meal, I expected to pay a premium, but the value for money was rather poor - close to $100/person without wine. I don't know if this is typical pricing for routine dining, but I'd expect considerably better quality food at this price point at any time other than a holiday.
The service was quite attentive, and we appreciated the fact that the staff was basically working on a holiday.
It was a good experience all around even allowing for the small-scale price gouging.

A great place to take your 'special date/significant other'. Romantic atmosphere, great service and great food. Not a place you might want to frequent on a weekly basis, a bit pricey, but great for a special occasion.

The view was beyond gorgeous. The staff made the experience worth it. Our waiter was great and the chef even came out to speak with everyone and ask them how their experience was going. I loved it overall and Houston needs a place like this to stick around.

I took my 10 year old son and his friend and they loved their steaks. My son is picky and they immediately took it back and remade it to include no garnish. Crab cakes were amazing, waitress was wonderful and chef came out to see how we liked everything. Great Houston classic.

It's a very nice place . I don't recommend if you have kids to take them. it's a super quiet romantic environment . The only thing was the price is high and the food not so great. Don't get me wrong the food was good but not good enough for that price .
