Overheard someone at our resort pool raving about Spencer's and thought we'd try it. Loved the atmosphere inside; outside looked great, too. Food was very good as was the service. Impressive, surprise find!

We would say that our dining experience wasn't up to par. The Spencer appetizer was very good. The Lamb Chops were tough on the outside but became more tender as I went along. The service was okay. My husbands pork chop was okay but a bit tough as well. The piano music was great.

Went for lunch on vacation! The food was great the prices were very comparable to other local restaurants. It was very busy, and we couldn't get a seat on the patio. I was very cold inside, I would take a sweater next time, even though it was 95 degrees out!

The food was excellent. The white fish was light and flaky --just perfect served with seasonal vegetables cooked to perfection. Dessert was carrot cake 'done right' and surrounded by a sauce with walnuts. Great ambience.

Went to Spencer's for breakfast on Saturday October 18th. Service was absolutely wonderful, Felipe was attentive without being annoying. Food was great, I had the breakfast sandwich ( gooey cheesy goodness) with fruit (lots of fruit, all ripe and delicious). Pleasantly surprised as we always thought this restaurant might be a bit stuffy, but not at all, we came in... More

Food was great! Filet was so tender and the Short Rib over mashed left me wanting more.....Banana Cream Pie for dessert!!!!!! Unlike any other.

Spencer's has a great atmosphere both inside the restaurant/bar area as well as on the patio(s), however, it is not equally justified in it's menu or the prices charged. I ordered the French Onion soup which was decent, but not anything special or worth the price. Additionally, all three in our party ordered salads, each of us feeling like what... More

My husband took me to Spencer's for my birthday brunch. Every detail from the gorgeous mountainside location, the gracious hostess, the polished service, the beautiful dining room, piano music and stunning views and the most fabulous food was near perfect. I also attended a PSCC event on the upper lawns, which was equally great. I recommend Spencer's very often to... More

Don't be surprised to find yourself sitting next to a television or movie star in this exquisite restaurant with a fabulous outdoor dog friendly patio. Wines and a la carte menu items can be expensive but Spencer's offers a $38 prix fixe menu you won't walk away hungry from. There is lots of food lots and although it is totally... More

Enjoyed a relaxed lunch in the early afternoon here under the trees. When you drive up Baristo road Spencer's is at the end. You may park anywhere there is no red curbing also there is excellent valet available. As you enter there is usually someone's Ferrari or Maserati or Bentley parked by the front door I think the valets either... More
