Spindletop Ratings and Reviews

Some newer, taller buildings have obstructed some of the view, but overall, Spindletop provides a beautiful 360 view of the city. The food is excellent. The kitchen only uses fresh, organic ingredients. And the service is fantastic. I went for Houston Restaurant Weeks, and everyone was super friendly, especially the waitress. She's an older person, and from what I could tell, she'd been working there for a while. She's the sweetest person you'll ever meet, and she was super helpful in describing the menu choices and the wine list. If you're looking for a romantic night out or you just want some excellent food with a gorgeous view of the city, make a reservation to Spindletop at the Houston Hyatt.

We were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary. Everything was great, It was my hubby's first time there; he really enjoyed himself. Looking forward to coming back again. The service was outstanding. Thanks for the beautiful card!

Great place to splurge for a special occasion. We ate from the Restaurant Week menu which offered good choices. The taste was great and they put a nice piece of chocolate reading "Happy Anniversary" on our delicious desserts.

Service was prompt. Food was delicious. Ambiance was amazing. If I had to criticize one thing it would be the smaller tables on the upper level of the seating area. I'm not a big guy but I felt a little cramped. The tables on the lower deck were larger. I would have liked to have been seated on the lower deck But that's just me being really picky about it.

Such a great experience and a completely unique view of the city for dinner. Service and food were excellent. We had the scallops for an appetizer and shared the Seafood Pot for 2 as an entree and recommend both dishes.

This was our first time dining at Spindletop. We were not disappointed. The friendly service we received started from the hostess to the the waitress, servers and managers. We were celebrating an Anniversary. We were surprised by a lovely anniversary card and dessert treated to us which was a thoughtful touch. Views were nice. Our waitress was kind enough to take several pictures of us without hesitation. Food and drinks were delicious. Thank you Spindletop for a memorable evening!

I thought the food was excellent, and the wait time was quick. It was my girlfriends birthday and the restaurant staff gave her a birthday card that they all signed. The manager came out to ask how we were doing, and made an effort to strike up conversation and wish my girlfriend a happy birthday. The view of downtown from the restaurant was amazing especially when all the buildings lit up. The only complaint I have is the waiter charged my card for the wrong amount, then had to charge my card again for the right amount and that was a little bit of an inconvenience, but overall the experience was great.

It was my birthday. Food was bland. I had the special, which consisted of Steak and shrimp with vegetables. I asked for my steak to be medium well but it came out looking under cooked. So they put it back and it came back crispy and tasted like rubber. I asked to speak to a manager after we paid our bill. I explained what happen and he asked would i be back and i said NO but he gave his card to email him or call so that i can come have a entree and a couple of drinks on them.

Gimmicky restaurant, good view, acceptable service. Big disapointment on food and the follow up service after they made a mistake. I was served raw potatoes, like crunchy potatoes, like my fork could not penetrate the potatoe...potatoes.
Server left us for at least 10-15 minutes, could not inform her until I already ate the rest of the plate. I was no longer interested in more potatoes. I told her I did not want more potatoes, they sent me mashed potatoes from the kitchen...didnt eat it. Chef came out to 'check' on things after he already knew we had raw potatoes served...no effort was made to help or clarify the error.
No value here. Food does not compare to it's competitors. Perry' s steakhouse runs laps around this place, and they dont have a spinning dining room. I get better service from the cheap movie theaters that serve food.

My first time there. Definitely different. Romantic it is. Food was ok. I wouldnt go necessary for the food. The menu can use more options. I would go again and invite others just because it will wow your mind. overall i loved it.

Chef Joey's cuisine was excellent and he even came to each table to speak to his guests. Very nice down to Earth guy.
Our server Melissa was excellent.
She explained the variety of dishes and recommended some great choices.
Our daughter is a picky eater and she ate everything they brought out lol.
We were very pleased with her service.The view was spectacular!!!
We loved everything about our experience.

The staff were extraordinary. There were kind and caring and catered to our every request. Our waiter was the best. We were not rushed or felt as if we had to leave quickly. The chef came to our table and introduced himself and asked if all was good. The food was great and prepared as we asked. The staff even stood at the table to be certain that the food was prepared to our liking. We came for our first wedding anniversary. We couldn't have asked for better. The staff gave us a card with all of their signatures. We felt that this was so personalized. They even brought us a dessert with a happy anniversary wish. One of the best nights ever. The view was great while the sun was up. I can't say how enjoyable our evening was. I would highly recommend a evening like we had. Thanks to all the staff.
