There are few restaurants in the Greater Toronto Area that provide the spectacular water views that Spencer's offers. In the summer time, a meal on the patio is visually stunning. But the level of service and the menu that almost never changes, does nothing to match the ambiance or pay off the very well done renovation completed last year. We... More

Brunch was an amazing experience. Great assortment of all sorts of food types and well presented. Excellent scenery and seating, great staff and service throughout brunch. Highly recommended for good friends and family celebrations.

Beautifully renovated, this comfortable bistro offers lovely views of the lake. The cuisine is delicious, fresh and perfectly prepared. Everyone will find their favorites. Go hungry and prepare to linger over brunch.

I was sadly disappointed by my experience this past weekend at Spencer's. My husband and I had been here 2 years ago with a great memory of upscale dining in our minds. However, Spencer's is not living up to it's high class appearance and price. The service was slow and curt, appeared very rushed and not overly friendly. The ambience... More

We could not have pick a better day and location. Beautiful sunshine, watching people skate right below us and overlooking the lake. Once we were seated we were greeted by our server Rob. He explained that we were able to order 3 alcoholic drinks that were included in the bruch price of $49.95. He had a very friendly and delightful... More

The Sunday Brunch at Spencer's is excellent. At $49 per person, it's well worth the price considering what you are offered. However, at $39 for the early bird special is even better. Overall the food was very good and the service was excellent. The fresh oysters we just that, fresh!! The crab legs served on ice were ok. They would... More

I started with the shrimp cocktail (called the Bloody Caesar Peel & Eat Shrimp), which came with four huge shrimp that were literally the best that I have ever had. Incredibly fresh! Then the Craft Cut Burger, which came with house bacon, local smoked cheddar and pickle and the Duck Fat Fries. Delish! My husband had the market fresh Ahi... More

My wife and I went with two other couples. We've been many times before with other friends but this was their first time. The service and atmosphere were excellent as usual. The food was good and we closed the place. I always find Spencer's to be consistent and one of the best places to go in DT Burlington.

The menu was not very exciting and somewhat boring. The views were great and the customer service was also very good. The food items itself were satisfactory but not mind blowing. The 14 oz steak did not look or feel like a 14 oz steak.

My husband and I got married and had our reception here at Spencer's in 2010. We were extremely happy with the professional service, gorgeous atmosphere and delicious menu. We also had the brunch buffet on another occasion. We sat on the patio and enjoyed every minute of our brunch together. Lots gourmet flavourful selections. We plan on going back this... More
