Spencer's at the Waterfront
Great location and atmosphere. Our waitress was absolutely wonderful.
We were here for an anniversary dinner, so had high expectations. We were not disappointed. The shrimp cocktail had massive, perfectly cooked shrimp. My Icelandic Cod dish had so many amazing layers of flavour, it was memorable. My partner asked for medium well steak, and it was very pink inside, a disappointment, although it still tasted great. The best part of the evening was our waitress, who treated us with warmth, respect and humour. She seemed to know our every need just before we asked. Dessert came as a surprise chocolate brownie s’more with chocolate Happy Anniversary written on the plate, along with two free glasses of prosecco. Overall outstanding evening!
Best part about Spencer's is the location. The food is fair and the price is way beyond what is reasonable for the food
Service is perfect. Ambiance is awesome. Food choices can be better
Our server Paul provided the required information on the SPECIAL of the day along with the other meal options... the special of the day was our choice of meal. our food was excellent, ie: the caeser salad was of the "heart of the lettuce", the prime rib was roasted to our liking, the desert was perfect....the service was superb, Paul is one heck of a server, attentive to all of our needs/demands.
Our daughter lives on Hurontario Street in Mississauga, we shall drive the extra miles to Burlington to dine at Spencer's on our next visit(s).......

The individual who served our table was amazing, full of energy and made for a very enjoyable afternoon.
Beautiful restaurant and great food!
Would have loved to be in the main dining area, however because we were a larger party we were put in the atrium area. If I had known this when I booked I would have asked to be in the main dining area. Although the view was beautiful, the atrium is very cafeteria like and it echos. The food and service were amazing as usual.
I was generously gifted a gift card to Spencer's. My husband and I decided to use it for their brunch which we have had several times over the years. It is a pricey meal for 2 ($135.00 tax/tip). The food was good, but there was not a great selection. If you liked seafood, it was o.k., but for a vegetarian, there were just salads and cooked veggies.
The service was friendly but we had to ask for our drinks, bill and a plate to put our shell fish discards. Over all, we decided not to return due to cost and lack of food options.
Food and service was excellent with the exception of waiting 23 minutes for a table with an 8pm reservation and being told you were getting a certain table and being brought to a completely different table.
Top quality food, for reasonable prices. Good value for the quality.
In general we had a fabulous lunch celebration for our Mom. Our server, Jill, was fabulous and our meals were very good. The lobster roll was a lobster and shrimp roll (with quite a bit of shrimp) and a lovely salad with too much dressing. The burger was great, as were the mussels, and the Caesar salad with steak. The special birthday plate with truffles for my Mom was very sweet. We enjoyed it immensely. The noise level (lots of other people celebrating!) was a bit tough at times.
Would definitely recommend Spencer's for an elegant lunch, in beautiful surroundings with top notch staff.
I had noted when making the reservation that we were celebrating my mother’s 80th birthday.
It would have been nice if she was recognized with something special.
Specials were delicious but very small portions. Certainly not worth $40.
Service was excellent, the view from the patio was excellent but the food was bland and overpriced. We will return and try something different, hoping for better results.
Stunning views across Lake Ontario from the balcony patio.
The staff was attentive and friendly. Tuna appetizer was excellent!
We were quite disappointed overall. Our server was over-stretched and the portions were too small.
Food weren’t as good anymore . Service was soso.
Sunday Brunch is outstanding. Love the decor and view as well
Food was fresh and delicious, wait staff were courteous and friendly, selection was unbelievable! All inclusive was an amazing value. Will definitely be back again!
pleasantly pleased with the food and service. Much improved from a previous bad experience where all the meals we chose tasted the same (fish on the menu and a fish special were identical in flavour) so was pleased the experience was great this time.
I would recommend Spencer’s for the ambiance and service, but not the food. It sadly doesn’t match up to the value. The food was good but not great.
We were celebrating two birthdays and the server brought us over a glass of Sparking wine. That was a lovely touch!
Great service and great ambience! perfect for a romantic evening or going out with friends
Our waitress went above and beyond for our anniversary and the food was amazing!!! Will absolutely come again.
We enjoyed very much the food and views at Spencer's. The Arctic Char was perfectly cooked and seasoned on a delicious bed of cord chowder. The calamari was crisp with tasty creamy dill sauce. My business colleagues had the clams and said they were amazing.
One suggestion for the restaurant is to open early every day for breakfast until 11am. I looked around for a restaurant with breakfast on the water to no avail. It would be a very successful addition to the restaurant!
Great view from their elevated patio. Top tier service.
Waited for 20 minutes to get seated when we made reservation ahead of the time. Staffs were not very happy maybe because it’s busy on Sunday? There were flies inside as well.
We requested and received a quiet table with a beautiful view. Our waiter was also particularly attentive. This restaurant has been erratic over the years with respect to food quality and service. If we continue to have the same experience as this latest, I will recommend more highly in future.
Beautiful environment,perfect set-up and the presentation of food was absolutely phenomenal.l am definitely coming back with friends and family.
My husband and I came here for our anniversary dinner. We were treated to two glasses of champagne to celebrate the occassion. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and the view and atmosphere were great! I would recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a special occasion spot.
Server was good but too long to be seated and waited too long to receive the wrong order that had to be redone.
Meh. See TripAdvisor for my review.
Waiter made all the difference. He was awesome.
I would definitely recommend Spencer's for the location and view. We had a pasta dish with scallops and shrimp. Disappointed to find the scallops were the baby ones and the dish was quite bland. We live in Mississauga so we might consider the drive out for a drink on the patio. We didn't enjoy our meals enough to rush back for another. Lots of great restaurants closer to us.
I thoroughly enjoyed lunch, but my experience at dinner was not the same. The value was not there. I paid twice as much for the dinner fish entree and got less than half the food value. It was such a rip off that I would not return at dinner ever again.
Great service, beautiful view, and fabulous food!! Can’t go wrong!
Great location on the water. Lovely patio. Branzino and Burratta were outstanding. Our server Alex was a delight. Thanks for the enjoyable evening catching up with a friend. We will return again soon.
We had excellent service from Chris. We had the shrimp and crab dip and calamari for apples, both were great and very ample servings. The mains were shrimp and scallops with egg noodles and Cornish Game Hen, again very tasty and well done. Overall, we had a great time.
