    Has anyone eaten at Spoodles recently?

    I've never eaten dinner there but as I'm staying at the Boardwalk it's so convenient I really want to give it a go.

    Any food recommendations?

    Thanks

    You know, we haven't. When Spoodle's first opened it was really great. It got glowing praise in the local papers, and was really busy. Then it went through a period of time where it fell off. We ate there during that time and have never been back.

    I've heard it's gotten better, but I've not tried it myself to confirm.

    We ate there in the summer Clare and felt it was quite good. The bread with olive oil was delicious and I enjoyed my red snapper. Michael had one of their specials and he was very disappointed as he only got six pieces of ravioli. Honestly, he was finished in a minute. The lemon pound cake with zabaglione gelato was very nice, as was the panna cotta. The one thing you may not like is that it can be very noisy. It is a family oriented restaurant but even I found the noise a bit too much, but there is a small area at the back which you could try and get seated in. I still enjoyed it though.

    I'd heard some bad reports a while back too but when I stayed at the BWI in December 2007 the smells coming out of the restaurant were very appetising and it's got me thinking :lol:

    Thanks Margaret - as you know me, honestly, do you think I'd feel comfortable eating there alone or would I be better off at somewhere like the Captains Grill where I've eaten before and know I'd feel comfortable.

    I think the area at the back would be very suitable. Have you looked at the menu to check the options? I think they look quite good for gluten free choices. I like the Captain's Grille and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. It certainly was a lot quieter and the setting lovely.

    Thanks Margaret, special diets put me in contact with one of the Spoodles chefs and they can make me a fresh gluten free flatbread which really sounds good, I fancy the steak for a main. I think I might still be on the fence about this one though.

    Haven't eaten there in quite a while unfortunately. But the couple of times we did we enjoyed the food.

    Oh nice report and photos, Mike! Looks like we'll have to give Spoodle's another try. Did they still have the small selection of tapas on their menu? That is our favorite way to have a meal, several little plates from which to choose. :yes:
