Not as good today as on past visits. Prices have increased. Becoming too expensive for us. If the food was outstanding I wouldn’t mind paying a little more but today it wasn’t. Had a tuna melt, not enough butter on the bread before it was grilled. Lacked flavor. Had a side of fruit, usually outstanding and a usually a very nice quantity but today it was a very small quantity and not up too their usual standards. My husband had the risotto and added shrimp. He said it was very bland. Needed some pizzazz. Setting is lovely and service was great. So today we were very disappointed.

This restaurant is a must if you have not been. The people are wonderful. The food is fantastic and so well priced. The Bloody Mary’s are the best in town along with the blueberry pancakes. The ambiance just tops off the entire experience. They are open all summer which is a huge plus.

We love eating al fresco and the misters area a great addition when it’s toasty is PS. The eggs Benedict are all great but just remember to tell them how you like your eggs or they are served runny. The service seems to be a little underwhelming.

From the moment we walked into the restaurant to the moment we left... it was amazing. The greeting, the patio, the wine list, the menu and the service was everything we hoped for. We came for a friends birthday dinner and the staff was more than gracious. If you are looking for a lot of gluten free options with wonderful ambience, this is your place.

Tucked away in the Tennis Club district, this place really is a hidden gem. The food and service were excellent.
The coconut shrimp were nestled on a slice of grilled pineapple, in a very original and tasty presentation of this classic appetizer. The three onion soup was also very well presented. We then had a rib eye and the liver and bacon. Both were cooked to perfection and very generous portioned. We rounded off the meal with a flavorful banana cream pie.
This is a must-try, when you're in town.

We are visiting from New York and heard Spencer’s was great so we made a reservation and went there. Unfortunately the food was underwhelming and they put us in a bad table in the back in a strange little room where someone was having a big party, so we really didn’t get to experience the vibe of the piano player. And the food was pretty underwhelming.

What is not to love about Spenser’s? Sunday Brunch and all five entrees were delectable. Service warm, attentive and professional. Warning: dining al fresco under the huge mature trees means an occasional seed pod/berry might occasionally bop you on the head or plop into your coffee!
