We had the caesar salad, beet salad and winter greens all fantastic, nice bread plate, steak was perfect and the vegetable delicious. Nice cappuccino and one shared plate of chocolate brownie. Overall better steak than the Keg. View of the lake, people skating, skyway bridge all lit up are excellent. Service was outstanding.

Lots of variety on the menu and everything that I have ordered or sampled from various friend's plates tasted great. The service is extremely good and courteous. The decor of the restaurant is beautiful...I love just looking around and soaking it all in when I'm there dining. You couldn't ask for a better location or better views. If you can... More

I was in town to catch up with old friends and had a belated Christmas get together at Spencer's at the Waterfront. Did you know they have an ice rink right there? And great views of Lake Ontario. No problems parking. My first eggs benny was a little on the cool side, but hey, it was the last one and... More

Enjoyed brunch at Spencer's, with friends. Great atmosphere and view. Great service and food. Expensive, but worth it for a rare treat. The only negative comment is that the food could have been alittle hotter, but that depends on when a new tray comes out.

This is a great restaurant if you appreciate ambiance in a restaurant. The restaurant is beautiful and in my opinion, has the best views in Burlington. It's fine-dining with a focus on Canadian-cuisine. I would definitely recommend visiting this place if you enjoy good quality food and don't mind paying a bit extra for the ambiance. Also, the service is... More

Located on the edge of Lake Ontario - great views , ambiance and most importantly - GREAT FOOD & SERVICE . Everything on the menu is tasty and well presented . However the hamburger & fries - superb . I love the outdoor seating - on a cool day they have heaters and provide nice blankets .

My Husband and I decided to take advantage of a gift certificate we received for Spencer's. We had heard it was a great place, the location certainly is amazing, right on Lake Ontario. However, we found the menu choices to be disappointing. There was no shortage of steaks to choose from, but the "Mains" as they refer to them, were... More

We enjoy Spencer's and usually come here every visit. Love the local produce focused on the menu and we enjoyed the new menu items. Our waitress was fabulous. Never fails to please.

Our nephew and his bride celebrated their wedding reception at Spencer's on New Years Eve. Great room, great food, great location. Loved it all. The staff was very accommodating and the decorations were lovely. Even the park beside the restaurant was beautiful at night with the Christmas characters and a skating rink.
