Freddy & Tonya Visit Spoonz

Freddy Spaghetti and Tonya Lasagna (mystery diners who are real Fenton residents) review area restaurants.

“Hey Tonya, remember the old TeeBonz on Lake Ponemah?”  “Well it is now Spoonz “ http://spoonzlakeside-tavern.com/

We happened to head on in to Spoonz over the steep railroad track incline (be careful not to bottom out your ride) off of Silver Lake Road just as your head west out of Fenton, on a cold wintery night recently.  The menu looked awesome.   A wide range of appetizers from Lebanese (includes vegetarian dishes), to wings to quesadillas.  Entrees included salads, meat, poultry and fish dishes, pizza (vegetarian) and great looking burgers.  The bar selection is plentiful, from a nice craft beer & wine selection to hand crafted mixed drinks. 

Each meal comes with a loaf of fresh baked bread with a honey-almond butter which was fantastic!  Tonya and I ordered a fish dish which came with not your ordinary vegetable of broccoli.  This vegi medley was made up of summer and zucchini squash and fresh green beans.  Tonya’s fish was a bit under-cooked.  It was sent back and the manager immediately came over to apologize (something that we said was lacking in the area lately).  Tonya’s dish was made right, and it ended up being a great experience. 

Although Spoonz is just beginning to crawl, we think it will be a big hit for the area come summer.  We are excited to go back and try the burgers and some of the appetizers.

Visit Spoonz at 3482 W. Silver Lake Rd. or call them at (810) 208-7601 for more information.

We went a couple of weeks ago - when they were playing host to a lake hockey tourney, so there were a lot of people coming in off the lake in heavy layers to warm up. The food was good, and the server, while admittedly new, did his best with an unfamiliar menu - we thought he gave it a great effort. As with when it was T Bonz, the shape of the main dining room ceiling makes it VERY LOUD, the sound goes up, seems to amplify and blasts back down on the diners. A couple of loud, drunk women added to the din. It will be good to see how Spoonz handle the patio come spring, that was always a highlight of the T Bonz experience!

LOVE Spoonz! We've been there a lot lately. Pizzas are half off on Mondays - they are great! Happy hour Mon-Fri 4-6pm $2 drafts and $2 well drinks. Highly recommend the Trinidad Salmon! Yum! Fish and chips, also good, love the fries! - fish sandwich is good, comes with homemade chips also very good. Salads are good and fresh. Haven't tried the nachos, but seen them, big enough to split with someone for a meal!

I have been there twice now and both times I was very disappointed. The place was not clean and the service was bad. My groups food did not come out at the same time, one meal needed to be sent back twice, the pop and draft beer were both flat. The most disappointing part was our waitress did not seem to care that were was so many problems and did not apologize.

We've been to Spoonz several times both for lunch and dinner. The food has always been great. They have recently discontinued the Lebanese dishes which is too bad - their hummus was awesome. We've gone also just to have a drink at the bar. Here's the great thing about this restaurant compared to Tee Bonez - they have great staff. No more belly button rings showing, tight clothing, or bikini nights. The staff we've had are all very nice and friendly - and professional. I only wish now that they've discontinued the Lebanese they would add more vegetarian dishes.
