Good steakhouse

Went with coworkers for dinner while on a business trip. The service was really good and the wait staff were very attentive. I had the beet salad which was really just a few shaved beets. In all honesty, the server did warn me that it wasn't much but I was still a little surprise at what I got... read more

We were in Salt Lake City for business and stopped to have dinner at Spencer's. The food was excellent as always and our waiter Kevin was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable about the wine selections and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed dining and conversing with him during our dining experience.

I went to Spencer's to celebrate my daughter's 30th birthday. The steaks were average at best! Mine was tough and dry. It wasn't seasoned at all. The service was poor; I had to ask for bread. My silverware was taken after the appetizer, but I had to ask for it to be replaced. I had not been to Spencer's in... More

Going to many steakhouses, i tried Spencers in Salt Lake City. It is truly bad. They are impersonating as a steakhouse. First, the portions are very small and the prices high. My steak was over cooked but the smallest 14 oz rib eye I have ever seen. there was no flavor. Our waiter told one of the guests I was... More

This place is great. It reminded me of some of the high end chain steakhouses I have been to in the past. However, this was much better. The meat was cooked correctly and they even treated my us to a special birthday desert since we were here to celebrate. Very attentive wait staff and a great bar menu. As others... More

The restaurant is located in the Hilton, downtown. Seated promptly, and service was good. The prices were exorbitant especially for a hotel steKhous, and not worth what we paid. The blue cheese coated ribeye was tasty, but got heavy, the more I ate. Everything is all carte, and sides were just okay. Wine list adequate, but somewhat pricey. Ruth's Chris... More

From the new Sweet Potato Pumpkin Bisque to the Spencer's Ribeye Steak, everything we ordered provided a literal melt in your mouth experience. Favorites from our visit (besides the ones mentioned previously): french onion soup, Caesar salad, shaved beets, and the Atlantic Salmon. Dessert is a much. In fact, this is a must-visit restaurant.

I've been to Spencer's twice for business dinners. They certainly don't disappoint on the quality of their food. Their steaks and other meats are fantastic! Keeping in mind this is an a la carte menu, it is still ridiculous that a side of about 10 stalks of Asparagus is $11. I'm sorry, did they rub them with fairy dust? Was... More

It's not that it was bad, it just wasn't all that good. For the price, there are other restaurants that are better. The wine pour was so small, I thought it was a tasting. This may be due to some state regulation, but if they aren't allowed to pour more, they should lower the price. The food was average, nothing... More
