    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.

    We love Spencer’s. The grounds are gorgeous and the food is spectacular. I happen to be a fan of liver and onions. I was thrilled to see it in their extensive menu. It surpassed my expectations. And we take a moment to celebrate their onion rings? We capped the meal with a banana split. Definitely shareable… should you choose to. 😜
