Excellent but Expensive

I have eaten at Spencer's many times. Great food, service, and wine. But a bit on the expensive side.

We only called in for a drink, staying in a nearby hotel. The two girls who served us were incredible. We stayed for more drinks and a superb meal. Wonderful evening on our trip around the Scenic Parks. Thank you Nicole and Karen, you were superb.

Spencer's is the local (non-chain) steakhouse in Utah, and have been serving the most consistently good, prime steaks in downtown Salt Lake City for many, many years. As a steak connoisseur I am very particular about my steaks. Over the 100's of times I have visited, I can only recall one or two times that I've had to send my... More

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.
