I had the opportunity to again enjoy a relaxed meal at Spencer 's... The location , the view are great by themselves but this is a great place. Service is very good and the offering mindful of local ingredients and slow cooking methods. The presentation of all dishes is very creative and all in all superb...

It was an outstanding evening . My friend lives there on the lake and when I said that I wanted to take the two of them out to the BEST restaurant in Ontario David who is an excellent chef himself said that's Spencer's. The wine we selected was grand and the server was attentive and friendly

A group of us went to celebrate an anniversary. We were seated fairly quickly and the place was busy. We arrived about 6:30 pm, had drinks, ordered our food and after almost 2 1/2 hours, were finally served our meals. Several other customers came in after us, were served, ate, and left. When we asked the server, we were advised... More

We recently dined at Spencer's on a week night and were very pleased with our experience. We were warmly greeted and shown to our table immediately. The service was attentive. In our party of four everyone enjoyed their meal. Two of us had halibut, one had the pasta of the day and a fourth had top sirloin steak. The salads... More

We were there to celebrate our 1st year anniversary. Our server, Victoria, was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. She was engaging and yet not intruding. We were sit at the very end section of the patio, so we had a bit more privacy. The food was delicious, we were very impressed with the appetizer, Tomato salad. It is a very simple... More

Sunday Brunch buffet: crab legs, mussels, oysters, made to order crepes and omelette, and a variety of other items, and includes beverages plus 3 alcoholic beverages of your choice! View is over Lake Ontario, and service was impeccable (Danielle). Only negative comment- the crab must have been previously frozen, a couple of my pieces had ice crystals on them, and... More

Not much to say other then it was just that "outstanding" the food was amazing, the view incredible and the service exceptional (by Kristen). We were celebrating our anniversary requested a table by the windows facing the lake and were seated in a booth in a further back area (more private) of the restaurant, the view was amazing and it...

Upscale dining in a beautiful location overlooking Lake Ontario. Watch the boats on the water, the people walking the waterfront and enjoy an excellently prepared meal. Great spit for a special occasion, a little pricey to go to often but worth it. Service is attentive, food is excellent, patio atmosphere is so relaxing.
