My son and his best friend suggested Spencer's. Another good neighborhood restaurant, Our meal and a sample of dessert were very good. The service and staff were great.

Great fish tacos. I had the tempura, wife had the grilled, both were great. 2 minute walk from the beach and half a block from where we were staying. It is loud, as others have stated. We almost had to yell to hear each other from across the table. But that wouldn't deter us from going back again and again.

Right down the street from our hotel, a 3 minute walk, we decided to try it. It was packed. I had the grilled fish taco, my husband had the tempura fish taco. VERY fresh, delicious and for 12.00 we were full and happy. We will go back again.

I had the tempura style shrimp taco and my friend had the grilled shrimp taco, both with Spencer sauce. Yummy! The tacos are delicious and almost a meal in themselves. We started the meal with clam chowder, this is very tasty and a little different than normal chowder. They offer 3 different hot sauces that they make, but they are... More

I suppose my taste buds are different than a tourists'. I find this place that appeals to the beach goers on vacation in the area here. While I think the place is neat offering ahi and salmon tacos, this is by no means the Mexican variety, much like Snapper Jacks, which I found to be a little more tastier. My... More

In a strange location, but worth the walk from California Street. Seared ahi tacos are stellar – be sure to get the spicy, creamy Spencer sauce. These tacos are a cut above the rest and they've got a great craft beer selection as well.

From the road, Spencer Makenzie's looks like most other roadside eateries, some outside seating, plenty of neon, but it really is an outstanding place. Excellent food, good local beer on tap and lovely servers who cope with babies and English people who need to ask about everything on the menu. Delicious chowder and the giant fish tacos, whilst not as... More
