We were celebrating our daughter’s college graduation. We’ve not been to Spencer’s since pre-covid and were excited to go back. Unfortunately, the food was just fine. Not as good as the bill proved it should have been.

I do want to point out the service we received from our server, Jessica, however. She was outstanding and her efforts went above and beyond. If the food was as good as the service we received, Spencer’s would be a home run. Not quite there yet.

Our first impression was very positive....a young lady gave us menus and water and took our order. We never saw her again! The salad with bread and butter arrived with one of the waiters, and was a delicious salad. There was no salt or pepper and we couldn’t find anyone to flag down for some. My companion got up and found some. We had ordered the 14oz Rib Eyes and a waiter delivered these....we never saw him again! The steaks were excellent, perfectly seasoned and cooked.

There was never a check on us by the various waiters, we had to go and find someone and ask that they refill or water glasses. The restaurant was not busy.
Close to us there was a table of six, then later a table of four business men. And their service was fantastic; we wish we had that server

Would we return? Debatable. The food was excellent, the service non-existent. The kitchen did an excellent job.

The waiter took too long to attend to us. He is a nice guy but we didn't think we mattered.
The people around us was load and made it noise.
The food was very good and we enjoyed every part of it.

My favorite steak house to go to. Menu is a little more limited, but the food tastes wonderful. Very pleasantly surprised by the brussels sprouts/bacon side dish.

We were excited to try Spencer’s for Steaks and Chops because we were told it was amazing! Our food was good but not great. The atmosphere was nice and the noise level was good. Overall we enjoyed our dinner even though we had to send both plates back because they brought the wrong order the first time and then food wasn’t cooked enough after that, our waiter was great and did his best to make things right.

The service was amazing. I never had to ask for water or more bread. He was on top of it the whole time we were there. Very knowledgeable about the menu, and answered any questions I had. They were also very patient while we decided. The food was great. Over all it was a very nice romantic quiet place for a date or really any occasion.

Steaks bland including butchers cut,Ny sirloin and lamb chops. Cooked correctly but tasteless. Prime meat? I doubt it and I know prime having have a good fortune of eating at many high-end steakhouse is and obtaining my meat from Lobels and Allen Brothers.

Very disappointed. I am from Idaho Falls & went to Spencers specifically for a ribeye steak and by 7 PM they were already out of steaks. This is a steakhouse so they should have been prepared for Saturday evening to have plenty of steaks on hand.

Having eating at Spencer’s before Covid, we were disappointed in the menu selection. The fine dining selections were few in number and variety. The scallops with bacon were excellent but pricey at two scallops for $23. The king salmon was very good and the vegetables with the chunks of bacon were delicious. The pork chop, on the other hand, was simply average.
The mashed potatoes were rich and creamy. The dessert selection was average. Their French onion soup is no longer offered, which is a shame.

I had $58.00 20 ounce in-bone ribeye steak. Taste was so-s, I've had much better tasting steak at Sizzlers. Nothing extras comes with the meal, not salad not sides. Expect a bare-bones meal. My wife had the salmon, which was soggy and not very tasteful. Very much overpriced for what you get. My recommendation, don't waste your money here, there is a better steak house a half block away or go up the road to Ruby River.

This is DEFINITELY fine dining with the price tag to match. But, for our special occasion of 8 diners, we felt like we were very well advised on how to ask for things to be cooked down to recommendations for sides and desserts. Everything was delicious! They were very professional, followed all mask mandate protocols, social distancing was completely adhered to and they were so accommodating. It was truly a lovely evening.

Spencer's was absolutely wonderful. The service was impeccable and the food absolutely delicious. Two of us had the bone-in ribeye, with side orders of brussell sprouts and sauteed mushrooms. The evening was great, and I can't wait to go back.
