Went here with a large group. The service staff was very attentive and responsive. The plated appetizers were on point - my favorite being the beef wellington sliders! My braised short rib was if anything slightly salty, but the taste was great and very tender. My wife and I switched potatoes so I had the baked parmesan - really tasty!... More

Came straight off the plane for birthday lunch. Excellent service, great food selection, and a friendly relaxed environment. The patio is just lovely if you can grab a table outside.

Ate here our first night in town. A walk from our hotel. Good food, many choices for dinner. Well prepared, pleasant staff, several different rooms in which to eat. Not inexpensive, but, well priced for the dining experience.

Spencer's is a step back in time -- in a good way. It's really lovely, especially the patio. For such an established restaurant, the service was just ok. A little unpolished and green, with the exception of the bar. The price fix menu is a good value and fairly extensive The wine list ok, but a little slim on moderately... More

We decided to go to Spencer's for the first time for my birthday. We arrived and had valet parking as the parking area is very limited. We had made reservations andf were seated immediately when we arrived, outside in the patio area. It was a bit of a cool day but the fire pits and the heaters were full force.... More

We ate breakfast here and the service was excellent. I had the waffle with fresh fruit and my husband had blueberry pancakes. Both were delicious. Pricey though.

We enjoyed lunch so much that we returned the next day. The three course Business Lunch is not only a terrific value, but also fresh and delicious. Mushroom soup, sesame encrusted tuna and chocolate torte were exquisite.

Nice ambiance and service. We went simple for lunch and we're disappointed. Onion rings we're cold and soggy like they'd been reheated or microwaved- they did a second batch that I'm pretty sure we're re-deep fried (burned and super oily). Burger was a low quality beef taste and bun same. Fries also terrible Maybe not best place for Burger and... More

With the tumultuous turn of the new year, what better words to live by than Beef and Bourbon. Spencer's has excellent service, great food and an eclectic atmosphere.
