Sunday Brunch - fantastic menu and we had very good waitress. However we also had some not so nice surprises: 1] We tried to book a booth for 4 at 1:30pm [brunch is served until 4:00pm] and were told we can only get a booth...More

Came for lunch with my sister. We had the heirloom tomato salad and the flatbread. All was delicious. Service was a little slow, but nothing that overwhelmed the meal. The view on the patio is awesome so nice to take time to enjoy.

Unfortunately the quality, taste and presentation of their food does not live up to view. No better place to be on a warm summer evening - if they could up their game with the food.

Forgetfulness aplenty. Children at the table for brunch were overlooked. We've given it 3 shots and each time was worse than the last. It's become nothing more to us than a nice piece of real estate.

We've driven by Spencers many times and said we should go there, so we finally did. Despite the September heatwave, we chose to dine on the patio. There was a slight cool breeze off the lake and combined with the view, made up for the...More

It has been a few years since we've dined here. The location & view is definitely outstanding. We sat on the patio for a lovely anniversary diner, beautiful for late September. Service was good but not exceptional. We both had the 6oz tenderloin, both cooked...More

They do have a separate room that could be used for a private party. I have never attended a cocktail party there but they may do them. Beautiful view for any type of gathering. Check with the restaurant.
