Spencer's Ratings and Reviews
In terms of a steakhouse Spencer's is a good option, but not if you're looking for a high end dining experience. On this last trip the lobby of the hotel is in the middle of a major renovation, so the ambiance of the restaurant is affected. It also took us 4 requests from the wine list to find something they had in stock.
The steaks themselves are ok. They were well cooked, but I would question if they were truly dry aged as the menu suggested as I didn't get that flavor out of them. The ribeye was also cut on the thinner side compared to other steakhouses in the ahead. The service was ok, but had to flag down the server a couple times even though the restaurant was only half full.
Everything was great but not happy with the restaurant charging us $15.90 for 2 bottles of still water. It was not made clear that still water is not tap water so v Ryan surprised by the charge. As we were celebrating a birthday, it would have been nice to get a dessert complimentary specially when we had ordered 5 of them.
Went there after CPA show with my husband and 12 yr old son for an early dinner on a Saturday. The calamari app very good, crisp coating and soft meat, spiced well with no need for dips, including a spicy salad underneath. Hubby and I had the special, extra long aged ribeye, but were not too impressed for the price. He asked for medium rare, I rare, and we were served the others order (we checked and switched). Son had risotto and loved it - it was a bit too dry for me, but when I added a bit of cream to the left-overs, he didn't like it as much. As for sides, the creamed spinach was very good (being I'm the only one who likes it), but the hashbrowns were a disappointment.
Waitstaff were attentive and friendly, but the bar was under construction, so drinks to time to travel from some other bar. I have been there multiple times for lunch, and their shaken salads are great, including presentation.
I dine alone at the bar and had the filet mignon and sautéed mushrooms, with a great wine paring (the Aberdeen Cab if I recall) recommended from Burt the bartender. Was such an enjoyable experience and the service was great even though he was very busy he was very attentive to all patrons. I ended up another glass of wine and a few scotches. Great place to wind down with great food, wine and a good ambiance.
Spencer's is a good, authentic steak house w/ dry-aged, broiled beef & soaring ceiling. My wife has a bad back so the bench seat is a plus. We ate warm bread (great), unusual crab cake (great), signature salad (OK, menu read apricots but used pluots, overdressed), 8oz filet (asked for pink but was too red), scampi side (the single big prawn was tasty but the tiny prawns looked too transparent to eat; served on top despite me requesting it not be so I couldn't enjoy the Bernaise side as much), mushrooms (some were chewy), sauteed onions (good). Waiter's errors: 10min to stop by, scampi atop steak, unaware of pluots, too rare steak. He was cheerful though. Incredible apple pie has been removed from menu. I eat here every few years because the chains feel frantic. With a bit of work, it would be much better.
Everything was very good.
We even got seated at a table for 4 as opposed to the row of tables for 2. Started with avocado poke. Avocado was blended. That was fine. Poke was good. Wife had a salad. The wedge. Menu has changed so the wedge didn't have the usual head lettuce
It was good. I had corn soup. Very good. We both had rib eye steaks. She had prawns scampy with hers. Steaks and prawns were cooked right and very good. The prices have gone up and the total was very expensive. Other wise a good time was had.
it was worth the price. the steaks are incredible: inches thick, flavorful, cooked to perfection. We took home uneaten portions (way too big for one meal) and ate them for two days. Our waiter was knowledgable and pleasant. His recommendations were spot on. When my daughter couldn't decide between two wines, the waiter brought samples of both and had her do a blind test. This was both fun and useful.
A very fine evening. It is very expensive but for a special occasion, you could not find a better restaurant.
It is nine years since we had been to Spencers. It was quiet on a thursday evening but the service was fantastic as was the food.
Decor is a little dated and the parking situation was confusing and crowded.
We were celebrating my birthday and we enjoyed the occasion very much.
STEAK!!! SO YUMMY!!! Good veggies too.
Service was effective but dull/ zero personality- might as well have had a touch screen to order food. My "opera cake" dessert was a complete disappointment- small and tasteless.
Paid $5 for a teeny-tiny ramekin of Bearnaise sauce- which was not enough for my steak.
Spencer's is a very underrated steak house restaurant, with other entrees to choose from. A very good wine that is modestly priced for your typical steak house.
Went quite a few times for business lunches & that was always a treat, very good selections offered for lunch.
I was there as the hotel in which it was located was next to the airport and though the food was decent as my wife and I had experienced much better in the days proceeding it so I'm afraid it failed in comparison. As to value I thought it a bit pricey but typical of restaurants housed in hotels close to airports throughout the country as your paying as much for the convenience as you are the food.
The food was good but it is very pricey. The real reason for this rating is that when we ordered a 16-yr scotch, the bartender swapped it for a 12-yr without telling us. We had to question the scotch and it wasn't after 2 trips to the bar by the waitress that this was told to us. They did comp the drink but that was completely unacceptable for a high-end restaurant
The French Onion Soup and the Ceasar's salad was excellent. I was disappointed with the Spencer's Hash Browns, they was a lot of it but only a tiny bit was crunchy as I expected it would be. The Chocolate Mouse Trio was so so. I have had an identical one at another restaurant. Atmosphere is very cozy and great for a special occasion or date. Service was very good.
