    Food was good but very expensive. My son wanted to try the Waygu rib eye. I got a regular filet mignon. They tasted no different to me, yet his was $22 more. Entries came with no sides. We got mash potatoes which was a ton to share. They were fabulous. I asked for bread and butter. They did not offer that. You needed to order a butter board which had a sweet butter. It tasted good but I was looking for plain bread and butter. Ceaser salad was small and did not taste like Ceaser salads that I am use too. Staff was awesome. I would equate this to a Ruth Chris or Flemings. If rather save the money and go to Longhorn or Outback which the steaks tasted the same to me.

    Before the pandemic, my husband and I went here several times a year. During the pandemic, we didn’t go at all. This was our first visit back. Francisco and his assistant Luis provided great service. The changes to the menu since the pandemic, particularly the addition of a lobster tail, protein additions for salads, and an expanded dessert menu, are all positive. Serving the salads in bowls is also new, and a good development. We had the wagyu ribeyes, which were really good and cooked to perfect temperature. The French fries were fantastic. The only complaint is that the lobster tail was a bit undercooked. Salt Lake City has strong steakhouse options, and this is one of them.

    Maple Brussel Sprouts were amazing . Service was good but our food was marginal . Steaks were unseasoned and one of them was dry and overcooked . Scallop Potato’s were a disappointment. Next time we will go back to Christopher’s

    The food was good but not amazing. Our server was quite attentive but our entres came out about 20 minutes after we finished our salads. The server offered up complementary desserts but we don't eat sweets. Not sure it was worth the price.

    Overall, the dinner was very well done. They were out of the tomahawk chop, so my husband chose the veal, however, it was a little too rare for his liking. I had the ribeye and it was delicious-perfectly cooked. Our other guests loved the burger, salmon entree and filet mignon. All of the sides were terrific (carrots, fries, Brussels sprouts) except the mushrooms, which didn't really add anything special to the entrees and we regretted ordering it. To finish the meal, most of our table shared a huckleberry cobbler, which was outstanding. Our server, David, was incredible...very attentive, and his timing on everything was impeccable.

    Thoroughly enjoyed scallops, lamb chops and garlic mashed potatoes, dessert chocolate cake was a hit as well. A bit of change, shared/split salad is now charged extra $6. If I knew would just order a full plate for $16 and use small plates to share. Not mentioned on the menu, would be better if it was. Otherwise great dinner.

    Spencer's For Steaks and ChopsResponded on November 1, 2022Hello! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review for us. I am thrilled to hear you enjoyed your dinner with Spencer's and can't wait to have you back! We recently made some updates to our menu and split charges being one of them, I can definitely put in a request to have the font size increased on the menu, so it is more visible to the eye. We thank you for your feedback and are always searching for better ways to improve our guest experience.

She surprised my partner with a variety of desserts for his birthday and it was a lovely surprise! The food was delicious. Highly recommend the Millionaires Bacon

    The filet was amazing and cooked perfectly. The NY was over cooked and not as good. The asparagus was good but a trifle under cooked and the fries were way too salty. Would definitely come back and recommend. Next time only get the filet though. Was our 1st visit.

    We were staying over in Utah for the evening before catching out flight home and wanted a nice change from camping out food. I did not realize that this restaurant was a hotel restaurant, but it was still delicious. I got the Wagu Bavette steak with blue cheese topping and Brussel sprouts. They were both great!

    The opening salads were great but the 2 steaks took another 45 minutes to come out. There were only 6 other people in the restaurant. It's nice to pay for a $200 meal where Spencer's doesn't really care how they take care of you.

    I was shocked at how poorly my lunch was presented. It was bland… even the dressing on the salad was badly seasoned and glopped into one side of the plate. It makes one wonder if anyone bothers to taste the sauces before approving them for serving. The greens were a mixture of fresh and wilted, again, poorly dressed and not seasoned at all. I was offered fresh ground pepper table-side, but it would not have helped. In the end I was served subpar greens, bland dressing which was not distributed appropriately (as is done with a Cesar salad) and a tiny, mediocre in taste, piece of salmon. No where near the $31 I was charged. The only redeeming part of the experience was I was promptly seated and served… and when I informed my server I had to get back to work asap, they were kind and accommodating. But the food?….Immensely disappointing.

    Service was subpar for a restaurant of this caliber. My waitress Clare just dropped off my food and didn’t check back while it got cold. She was very attentive to the table next to me, really detracted from my experience there. There was nobody else around for me to get their attention to get help until the food was no longer hot.

    The food was absolutely awesome, impeccably prepared and downright delicious. We had the 14 oz bone-in fillet - like butter. The service was top notch. Our server, Kayley (?) (not sure if I have her name remembered correctly) was very attentive to our needs and very personable as well. She even wished us Happy Anniversary when she first came to our table and made us feel special the entire evening. Can't rave enough about the entire night!

    I went here with my girlfriend for our one year anniversary. made a reservation and we got in without any delay we were seated in a great spot and loved our waiter. The steak was a bit pricey, but very good, everything else was fairly priced and delicious. for dessert I secretly asked our waiter to write happy one year on the plate. the vanilla ice cream was the best ice cream I’ve ever had! then when we got our check we I found that they didn’t charge us for the dessert! We were very grateful and loved our experience.
