Spinnerstown Hotel is a restaurant serving rustic local cuisine in Quakertown, Pennsylvania. The dining areas of are divided into 3 parts. The first is a casual soapstone bar and wooden booth-lined taproom, with 18 rotating beers on tap and a simple, rustic atmosphere. The second is a handsomely homey dining room (sans TV) complete with a fireplace, stone walls and hand painted ceiling. The third is an outside barn-like deck with vaulted ceilings. The cuisine is simple farmhouse fare, but with its own modern twist. Diners will find house-made burgers, Belgian-style mussels and hearty entrées like the in-house butchered boneless rib eye or hand rolled gnocchi. In addition to these standards, the menu is constantly under development, using fresh, seasonal ingredients to consistently create new dishes. An exceptional beverage selection encompasses a value-driven wine list, hand crafted cocktails, a legendary beer program, and a temptingly stocked bottle shop.

Meat was over cooked and expensive. The bread came out to us burnt. Other wise it was good.

The service was a little slow. My friend wanted Pelligrino water and they didn’t have any. That was odd. The food was very good. Okay atmosphere.

We always enjoy going to Spinnerstown but the service was a bit slow. I think many restaurants are experiencing the same thing though. Hopefully the next time it will be better.
Still has the best onion soup, Filets and key lime pie!!!

We came for dinner net because we were in the area. The food was great except the sirloin was too saturated with a thick sort of gravy and very salty. Everything was delicious and service was fantastic! We will be back!

Our waitstaff was very entertaining and properly attentive. We weren't rushed at anytime throughout the evening. Our food was plentiful and delicious. I ate too much and had to take home part of my free-range chicken dinner and a very delicious peach creme pie.

We ate here last night for the first time. The service was a bit slow, and at no time did our waiter check on us other than to deliver our orders. The food was hit or miss. My spouse enjoyed a sausage sandwich and sweet potato fries. I had a good salad, although the ahi tuna was clearly the frozen variety from a grocery store. The swordfish was cooked to the point of being mushy, and the entire dish was overly salty. We will not be returning soon.

Been going here on and off for years. Hadn’t been there for a while. Had late lunch/early dinner with my daughter. Food, service and atmosphere were awesome - just as I remembered it. We split a lemon herb crap cake and a shrimp app. Crap cake was pan seared perfectly seasoned and garnished with a chipotle roasted corn relish. Astoundingly good. The shrimp app was also excellent but wasn’t the crab cake. Lol. I had a the mushroom cheese burger medium rare. Very nice and cooked to temp. The roll was great, fresh and lite. My daughter had the pork sandwich. It was excellent with just the right amount of tangy zesty BBQ sauce. Incredible and extensive beer selection and an equally great variety of bourbon and scotch. Such a welcomed change from places with two or three bottles of lower level product. I enjoyed the Yamazaki 12. Lastly, bartender was awesome and the atmosphere was great. Like being back in the neighborhood at the corner tavern. Love this place!

AMAZING food and service. Their home made Bleu Cheese dressing is a must-have! The petite filets were tender and juicy. We always have an excellent dining experience at the Spinnerstown Hotel. We highly recommend it.

The Irish onion soup is my husband's favorite. Best he has ever had and #1 in his book.
But everything else is wonderful also. Chicken cheese steak - Croissant with grilled chicken, peanut butter pie all +++++++++++.

Such a quaint, cute place, and I was excited to dine here for the 1st time for my birthday. The Irish Onion soup and apple dumpling were delicious and my husband enjoyed the salmon. The only negative comment I have is being stuck at a drab little table right next to the bathroom during a very busy evening. There were endless people coming and going constantly and it interrupted many of our conversations. We’ll definitely visit again, I just hope we will have a better placed table.

As usual, excellent food preparation. Entrees are limited in number to about 6, fairly simple preparations without lavish sauces or accompaniments, but very well prepared. Entrees include a salad. Very good beer and wine list. Only criticism is that diners seated in the lounge/bar room are subject to rock music - too loud for dinner - and TV's which destroy any attempt at ambience for sophisticated dining and creates a mismatch between fine dining and a casual/bar atmosphere. Our experience now that covid is lessening, is that most restaurants are struggling to find their way back to where they were before covid began. This restaurant seems like they haven't skipped a beat.

Surprised at the limited menu but must be ‘Covid ‘ related. Price increases seemed evident especially the full dinner prices. So we ordered accordingly and were pleasantly surprised. Sweet potato fries basket was flat out excellent from taste and quantity standpoint. The wedge salad’s presentation and amount of blue cheese used was excellent - one of the best wedge salads ever. We each had crab cakes as well and they were very tasty and had less filler than most. Would return for specific likes on their limited menu but not a destination restaurant for us.

Unfortunately they couldn't accommodate our request for outside dining, however in all fairness, the was a last minute, same day reservation.
Food & service was great as always. The Spinnerstown Hotel has one of the largest and best selections of wines and beers that I've ever seen in a restaurant. Check out the lists on their website.

Great Ahi Tuna salad, but the best beer selection on the planet! Curated for Lehigh Valley Beer Week, the selection I chose was a never-head-of-before Saison that I shared with my dad who follows my lead on such things. Made for tasty quaffing for sure. Always run into old friends or make new ones while I’m visiting Spinny’s whether solo or with family, too!
