    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!

    It was just mediocre - except the price tag I can make a better steak at home I would reviennent any other steak house - Ruth’s Chris is far superior in every category

    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.

    We went here for my birthday dinner. I was a little nervous to try a new place on a special occasion, but it definitely did not disappoint! The crab dip was a lovely start to the meal, we loved the wedge salad (which we mentioned we were going to share so they kindly split it into two plates without us even asking), and we both had 8 oz fillets with truffle gratin potatoes! It was absolutely delicious, and the steak was cooked to perfection! Thanks for a great evening!

    We have always loved Spencer’s…. Last night was a complete + utter disappointment. They changed pretty much the whole menu, + not for the better. Cesar salad came out looking like two bites of dead coral you’d find in the ocean. We got the completely wrong steaks + two in our party didn’t get theirs, then got told they didn’t order anything but sides. 3 shrimp for $20. Service was subpar at best. We won’t be back for a hot minute if ever.

    Spencer's For Steaks and ChopsResponded on August 21, 2022We are very sorry that your experience was not on par. On Saturday we had one of our busiest nights ever and we are sorry you had to endure this. I would love to personally invite you back, to experience us again and show you what we can do. Feel free to reply to this at any point to get that setup. Thank you again, Giro

    We loved our server, the food was pretty good, but way overpriced for what it was. Very burnt Brussel Sprouts and the kitchen was backed up. It took over an hour to get our scallop appetizer, but it was really tasty. There are better options for this price point near by. It was fine, but nothing to wow you.

    Perfection!! From beginning to end we were treated like kings. Just a couple of nobody's from out of town looking for a good dinner. The service was excellent and the staff understood that they were just as important as the food. That being said, every Course of food was a work of art. The millionaire's bacon was incredible. The flavors complimented each other so well that it was perfection. We also tried the French onion soup now coming from Saint Louis we were very picky about our French onion soup. No one has done it quite like Famous Barr but it was incredible. If I had any critique I would say realize that you have a great soup and have more soup,onions and a few Croutons and a little less cheese. On to the main coarse. When it comes to steaks they have a lot of options but I knew that wagyu beef was as good as it gets. We were there for my sons Birthday ( who's name just happens to be Spencer) So though it was expensive I wanted him to try the best. So Spencer got the Wagyu Ribeye and I got the Wagyu Filet Mignon. I was a little worried because I love a big steak and both were only 8 oz. But I was excited to try it. When the steaks came out they looked small and I didn't think this would be enough. This dinner was a mind altering experience like nothing that I had ever experienced before. The steaks were cooked perfectly. Each bite was just incredible and you have got to get The bone marrow butter. It elevates the steak to another level. The Maple bacon brussel sprouts were perfection and The Truffle Potato Gratin was A warm comfort that just made you smile. Every bite of this meal was an appreciation of the Mastery that this restaurant had just produced. Needless to say we were happy and full. But that was not the end of it we were surprised With a slice of flourless chocolate cake accompanied with a cup of chocolate ice cream And written in raspberry syrup was Happy Birthday. Heavenly and thoughtful. By far the best meal we had ever had.

    Spencer's For Steaks and ChopsResponded on August 23, 2022Daniel, what can we say We are so happy and thankful to have made your night special. On behalf of our whole team, we thank you for your kind review and for taking the time to write your thoughts. We hope to see you soon to celebrate all of your successes in life. Giro

    Fantastic meal at Spencer’s! We ordered the local artisanal bread, a filet, ribeye, mashed potatoes, asparagus and crème brûlée. Everything was delicious. Our waiter was almost too attentive but very kind. We went early evening and were pleased it was quiet enough we could enjoy an intimate dinner.

    Good food, albeit pricey. Like most steak houses, side dishes and sauces are ala carte and separate charge from main dish.

    Spencer's For Steaks and ChopsResponded on August 21, 2022Good Afternoon, We are sorry that you did not think our prices aligned with the offerings. Unfortunately in the last few months, we have seen incredible increases in our costs. Some products are up 400%.

    Had such a great experience at Spencer’s. The lavender gin sour was delicious and so cute! Went all out with our order - started with the shrimp cocktail which was delish! Then came the complimentary bread & butter and I could’ve eaten the entire basket. My mom got the prime ribeye and ate the entire thing!! The French onion soup was the best I’ve ever had. A must!! Skip the Brussels - they weren’t bad but weren’t special either. Our server Eric was knowledgeable, helpful and just really fun!

    We ate next door at Ruth’s Chis a couple of days prior and Ruth's Chris was superior in every aspect. My Wagyu Filet was good , but the rest of the food was sub par. Slow service, old amenities. Just not on the same level as Fleming’s or Ruth’s Chris, but equally as expensive
