Spencer's has it all. Good food, friendly staff and a great patio with a fantastic view. We went there for lunch and enjoyed every single minutes of it. My friends are of out of town and they were mesmerized by the location. I recommend the kale ceasar with real anchovies. The dressing was just wonderful. Looking at the number of... More

A great place for brunch, lunch, dinner and a wedding. Yes, that's right, people even get married here. The views of Lake Ontario are stunning. But that is just the icing on top. This restaurant offers first class service and an amazing dining experience. The steaks are great but you should also try the lobster you will not be disappointed.

The best part of summer and dining are the outdoor patios with spectacular views and this is one you don't want to miss. Overlooking Lake Ontario with stunning parkland and boardwalk beside, take advantage of our short summers while you can. On a perfect afternoon my friend and I dined for lunch on the covered patio. Surprisingly uncrowded we were... More

We went here twice this last week so that has to say something. First for lunch to check it out before booking a business dinner. Lunch was great as the weather cooperated and we could enjoy the Incredible view. The fish was delish as was the chicken BLT and roasted tomato soup. Since there is no kids menu at all... More

Excellent food and service in a beautiful setting with view of Lake Ontario. There is a park and walkways along the lake to enjoy before or after the meal and plenty of parking which one does not usually find at other city restaurants. Great Place for special occasions. Busy place and reservations are advised.

Spencer's is one of our regular dining restaurants. They have a spectacular waterfront view and always fresh, well presented menu. Whenever we have guests from out of town, we will always take them to Spencer's. We have never been disappointed with the food, the ambience and the service. We have young children - and they love that restaurant. They don't... More

We were out for a drive and stopped into Spencer's for a drink on their terrace. It was so comfortable overlooking the lake that we stayed on for dinner. We ordered the top sirloin with Yukon gold fries, asparagus and split the panna cotta dessert. We thoroughly enjoyed the dinner and ambiance. Our server Amanda, was so helpful and attentive.... More

It isn't very far from Buffalo to Toronto, but it was lunch time so we made a pit stop in Burlington, Ontario. We had passed through Burlington, but had never stopped before. We asked a young indigenous where he would send his parental units for lunch, and he recommended Spencer's at Burlington's Lakefront Park. The Spencer's building has enough interest... More
