    Overall our experience was good. Our waiter was helpful and courteous. Our steaks and seafood were excellent, and the side dishes were delicious. My two caveats were the cocktails were quite weak, and they were not very food allergy friendly. My husband's neat bourbon was a scant one ounce pour and I could barely taste the bourbon in my drink. Nearly every item on the menu contained dairy. That said, I would recommend this restaurant, but in the future I will stick to steak and wine. They do have an extensive and interesting wine list.

    Always great steaks and sides. This time we enjoyed the "Spencer's steak" bone-in ribeye, loaded hash browns, charred asparagus and creamed spinach. Of course, it is pricey, everything ala carte. But they allow you to share both entrees and side dishes, so it ends up being quite reasonable, especially for the quality. (Our thanks to our server for pointing this out.) Even with splitting, the portions were so generous our take home provided another meal for my wife the next night. I brought a special bottle of wine, and it was served expertly. Reasonable corkage fee, too. Spencer's is our restaurant of choice whenever attending an event at the nearby Opera House. Great food and free valet parking minutes from the entertainment venue.

    My husband and I were celebrating a very occasion, with dinner and tickets to see Wicked. We decided to go to Spencer's because it was close to the Opera House and it had been 24 yrs since the last time we were there. It's was very romantic and the food was fabulous. The service was great. Just wish I'd would have had room for dessert. I can tell you, we wait so long, before returning. Thanks for a great start to a magical evening.

    I had my granddaughter for a special night out and our dinner reservations were for 5:45. The waitress was very nice, but did not discuss the dishes with us and forgot to let us know the specials, My granddaughter wanted a milkshake, the waitress said it would be too hard to make and too big for her to drink. I dont know if this is correct, however she did not check to see if it was possible. The service was very slow, we had reservations for 7:30 at the Opera House and we were not served until 6:30, did not have time for desert and had to take it to go to eat at the Wicked play intermission.

    We went here for our son's 40th birthday. We travel from the SF Bay Area every year for his birthday, and kind of alternate between here and Churchhill's. The food is always good, and for the price it should be. This year we had a rather long wait for the food, but I think this was because 3 or 4 large tables ordered just before we did. The cocktails were good as well.

    I went to Spencer's for the first, but certainly not the last, time ever on April 25. I chose the restaurant based on the reviews I read on the Trip Advisor website and was gratified to find the positive ones were right. The waiter gave me time to review the wine list and time to enjoy a glass before taking my meal order. The steak was cooked exactly as requested and the sides were perfectly suited to the meal. I will go back every time I am in Spokane, and would recommend this restaurant to everyone who enjoys a great steak.

Did not care either for the Shrimp Cocktail,the Basil Sauce with it was not what I liked.Baked Potatoe was good,cooked freshly,they Mushrooms ok too.I received a "free"Icecream"you guys have to work on the presentation,just a heap on a salad plate like dish,awful looking. I suspect we came on the wrong night,the A crew was off.I did not write that to get a free Meal,etc.

    My team and I were attending a conference at the Spokane Convention Center, and I wanted a special lunch to reward the group for attending on their day off. Spencer's is next door so we decided to give it a try. Our table was ready when we arrived, and the waiter asked immediately if we had a time constraint, which we did. The menu was interesting enough to keep everyone happy, the food was out in a timely manner, and our waiter made suggestions that made things just a bit better. The group was pleased with their choices, and everything was hot and fresh. The caper aoli was particularly a hit. We were out right on time with what I thought was a reasonable bill for 8 diners. Nice introduction to Spencer's.

    My wife and I haven't been back to this restaurant for about 3 years due to a very poor dining experience with our daughter. Both the service as well as the food were awful on this occasion, and both had been declining for some time. Well we finally decided to try it again. It was great. Both the food, as well as the service were outstanding. We will be happy to go back and enjoy the restaurant again. Please keep it up.

I was the birthday boy (65) so for lunch I got the most expensive item... and got the smallest filet and a giant prawn and 2 sticks of vegie. my wife got the hamburger and it had more and cost almost half. So the price for what you get.... not good. Lunch for 3 was 95 bucks. will we return... no not until I win the mega jackpot.

    My husband LOVES steak; a friend recommended Spencers. We booked our reservation on line. Met with a friendly attendant who offered free valet if eating at Spencers. The restaurant was warm and inviting. Beautiful bar, rich warm tones with nice lighting. We were promptly seated and enjoyed a few cocktails and then a seared Ahi appetizer which really was excellent. Our server was fabulous; knowing the menu and making well informed suggestions. He was timely and consistently making sure we had everything we needed. The dinner served to us was absolutely amazing. The steaks were cooked to perfection and were tender and juicy. Bacon mac and cheese was fab! They also helped with the birthday celebrations, arranging candles and cake.

    Dined on 3/27/2014
    My daughter and I make a habit of eating here at least once during our yearly visits to Spokane for the volleyball tournament. Their beef is as good or better than the highly touted and to some extent more expensive steak houses of San Francisco, but don't think you will be eating cheap -- this place is pretty expensive too, but worth it food wise, with experienced wait staff, a fairly limited but well selected wine list, and some interesting side dishes large enough to feed two. Lively bar crowd on weekends and a separate bar menu for a less expensive meal. Surprised on this last visit they charge for the sauces, would prefer to see your choice of sauce included in the price of the steak.

    Spencer's holds the distinction as the established steakhouse in Spokane serving Prime grade beef. The ambiance hits the right note with the exception that the lights were too low. The menu fits classic steakhouse orthodoxy; the wine list is robust. Our server went MIA for 20 minutes after we ordered wine. I expect there was a legitimate crisis somewhere else but would have liked to see him offer us salads or dessert on the house. He didn't and his rehearsed speech on Prime graded beef felt rote. He did point us to a great bottle of wine that we had not noticed. Our steaks were cooked spot on. The spinach side was a garlic-lover's dream. The onion soup was exceptional. I'll slip back in for lunch for another bowl.

    Dined on 3/1/2014
    My fiancee and I tried a steakhouse in Spokane last year (Churchills) for Restaurant Week and had a great experience. We figured we would try Spencer's this year but did not have the same experience. The way I understood RW to have worked is that those who can't normally afford some of the finer dining options in Spokane are given a break on the high prices, not nickel and dimed as I felt we were. The portion sizes were incredibly small (3-4 ounce steaks) and I was still hungry upon leaving. With the parking fee, which I was too late that it was included, I dropped 100 dollars for a dinner for two that did not satisfy and was a large rip-off in my opinion for what we got. I will not be returning to Spencers nor recommending it to others.
