    This is an excellent restaurant. The menu is varied and all entres were delicious. The service was also excellent. Our group of four was changed to 5 with no hassles and we were sat at a round table which is so nice for a group of 5 the bartender also made special drinks for us which were delicious. It can seem a bit pricey when you convert to Canadian dollars but over all it’s an excellent place for a classy evening out

    Superb in all aspects. New Zealand salmon was light flaky and ideally prepared. Pork chop was also outstanding. Carrot cake desert was one of the best I’ve experienced.

    Found this at the last minute and it was GREAT! Very intimate outdoor seating with cool trees . Service first class and food delicious. Only drawback was the limited restroom facility, that only serves one person at a time.

    Been coming to Spencers for 8 years and enjoyed this dinner as much as any my wife and I have experienced here. We each had the $59 price fixe. I had the ribs appetizer, the rack of lamb and the carrot cake which were all excellent. My wife's Ahi Tuna appetizer with her price fixe was particularly outstanding. The ambiance at our outdoor table was as good as it gets and is extremely conversation friendly. The service was just right without being too much.

    As always a great place to celebrate. We enjoyed a cocktail made with local whiskey. We all enjoyed a wonderful dinner. I had a steak special with mushroom sauce potatoes and green beans. I also enjoyed the green peppercorn sauce that my husband ordered with his steak. We ordered cream brulee and a decadent chocolate pudding. Our waitress also brought a dish of ice cream and berries with a candle to wish us a happy anniversary which was very thoughtful. The service is really wonderful, the entire staff were very pleasant and helpful. The space is beautiful, we try and sit outdoors but decided to try inside which is just as nice.
