We stopped in on 3/2 after skiing Northstar. We all had salads which were excellent. Mine was the special beet salad. Others had spinach salad. They brought fresh bread and lake water which is very very good. Also we got Pellegrino. Some had the cheesburgers...More

Honestly, my favorite nearby breakfast place closed down after decades in business. There are very few other locations near by. I've had dinner and apps at Spindleshanks a few times before and was not moved to rate them highly. My wife and I went yesterday...More

I ate here last night. The food was more than ample and great tasting! Love the huge portion of calamari/shrimp appetizer, the seafood pasta fed me for 2 days with wonderful, rich, seafood-filled goodness. Other meals at our table looked as fantastic. But I don't...More

Exceptional breakfast after golfing 9 holes. Food was fantastic, bloody marys delicious, and service was exceptional. We enjoyed the golf course and restaurant from start to finish. Great people!! We will be back for dinner (friends said it was wonderful) and some more golf.

We had high expectations based on the reviews on this site, but were disappointed. Service was slow -- we waited nearly an hour just to order our food -- and most of us didn't like our dinners when they finally arrived. Very expensive, too.

We used to go to Spindleshanks when it was at its old location in Tahoe Vista. We just figured that the restaurant wouldn’t be as good having located to a golf course. We decided to give it a try and were happy we did. Nearly...More
