A community enclave since 1750, this spirited dining destination draws diverse patrons from a wide region. Creating a memorable experience distinguished by congenial service, impressive cuisine, and incomparable libations are essential components of “The Spinnerstown Way” – a benchmark for exceeding expectations embraced by the Dale family for more than 60 years.
An eclectic menu spanning casual small plates to fine-dining entrées showcases local ingredients. Abundant handhelds encompass a specialty Spinny Burger and a signature Smoked Pig Sandwich. New dishes include a refreshed version of an old favorite, Lemon Herb Crab Cakes. This rendition features rémoulade-topped mini-crab cakes dressed for the season with roasted vegetables, marinated kale, pickled apple, and a winter squash purée dabbed with spicy pepper coulis. (Pairing tip: Partner this with a complex, bourbon-based Autumn Coupe.) And Crab Cake Sandwich fans, take heart: This remains a house staple!
A superlative drink program satisfies virtually every adult-beverage proclivity, from a value-driven and Wine Spectator award-winning wine list to an inspired cocktail collection featuring locally produced liquor from Xplorer and Boardroom Spirits. Premium bourbons attract another coterie of fans. A legendary beer selection – co-owner John Dale’s bailiwick – features 18 rotating taps that include hard-to-find craft brews and imports, with plenty of New England and West Coast IPAs. A huge array of bottles and cans are also on offer. Insiders seeking rare finds should inquire about vintage beers. Take-outs include two sizes of growlers, and an on-site Spinny Bottle Shop is amply stocked with beer and wine.
Ambiance styles in this vintage setting include a warmly rustic bar and booth-lined taproom, plus a comfortably refined, fireplace-adorned dining room – which is also available for private events of up to 60 guests. A more intimate room upstairs hosts up to 30 guests. The spacious barn-roofed deck is now equipped with automatically adjusting awnings and space heaters to extend the outdoor season.
