Outside dining with casual atmosphere. Staff was good and food delish. Went with kids and they had so much to see on the patio.

The food here was very good. We ate outside near the water, which is cool. I had stuffed cod and it was very good. Service was decent and the beer cold. Not a big selection of beers on tap.

We come to Spanky's on a yearly basis, that's how much we love it! Today we were celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary. The service and food is always wonderful. I got the baked stuffed cod and a red wine sangria, both excellent.

We stopped in to cool off and the seasoned bartender and his sidekick Matt were friendly and fun to talk to. They kept refilling our water without us asking. Great location and vibe.
