Incredible steak

Al a carte and pricey, but worth it. My medium rare NY strip was perfectly prepared. The mac n cheese side, creamy and delicious. A friend had the lamb chops and was raving. The service was great and the restaurant was quiet and comfortable.

We treat ourselves to a nice dinner every few months. Normally we go to Ruth's or Fleming's but tonight decided to try Spencer's. I must say, we were very impressed with our first visit here.

Though our family eats at only fine steak houses, this is one of our favorites. You must get the french onion soup. It is the best, I mean the best. The layer of melted cheese is a family favorite. The broth is also killer made from a reduction. Its so hearty that I could have it for dinner. The steaks... More

While in Salt Lake City on business, several people recommended Spencer's. There we met John R, a consummate pro server, and enjoyed simply fantastic steaks (filet and ribeye). The whole staff there, including Rene, were great to us. The food isn't cheap but it's so damn good that you can't walk away thinking you didn't get top value for your... More
