Over the years, I've eaten at Spencer's many times. Why? Because they consistenly offer a selection of fine food. I personally love their steaks and they always cook them exactly right. They also have a great selection of desserts that make my mouth water just thinking about them. For a dining experience that's sure to impress, you can't go wrong... More

I love steak and tend to order it in most areas I visit if possible and I think it'll be good. I wasn't planning on eating at Spencer's since the Hilton is near so many other places but ended up doing just that and am I happy I did. I had the 12oz filet, you have to ask for it... More

While visiting Salt Lake City I had the opportunity to eat at this steakhouse. The decor is traditional (wood paneling everywhere) but very comfortable. We were quickly seated in a very cozy booth. Service was exceptionally good and courteous. My overall impression is that everybody is extra nice and go the extra mile in SLC. I ordered the Spencer's Rib... More

Had lunch by myself ad ordered french onion soup with black and bleu steak salad. The soup was hot, delicious and a sizeable portion. The salad was also very good, with filet cooked perfectly as requested (medium rare). The presentation on the salad was underwhelming, but otherwise well prepared. Service was prompt and curteous.

My ribeye with bone seemed to be a little less weight than mentioned in the menu. Although cooked as ordered, ever other bite seemed to have unchewable grizzle. I turned back the sautéed spinach as it seem to have much more cheese than spinach and the concoction surely wasn't sautéed. Very limited number of half bottle wine selections, so I... More

Nice restaurant inside the Hilton. Food was very nice too. Our rib eye steaks were very tasty. Problem? Those steaks arrive on a plate with absolutely nothing else - no garnish, potatoes, sauce or veg. Asparagus was an extra €13. We had a starter each Calamari was nice too and a good size, the steaks, asparagus, mushrooms, a sauce for... More

This up-up-scale (price wise) steak house is located in the Hilton hotel. When I pay a lot of money for a steak, I expect it to be one of the best I have ever eaten. Sadly, Spencer’s steaks do not meet that criterion. I have had better steaks in a number of steak houses throughout the country and for a... More

I attended a genealogy conference, which was held at the Hilton. Spencer's is located at the Hilton, accessible from the hotel and also from the street. Spencer's is the hotel's room service provider. A bit tired from my trip, I decided to eat dinner in my room. I ordered the parmesan dusted calamari appetizer (among the very, very best fried...

The hostess asked the chef about a gluten free bun and it was there they next day for me to enjoy! I think they should keep them in stock at ALL times as their burger was AMAZING!!! It's rare to get a good burger these days, but this and the potatoes that come with it, were all excellent.

Was it good? Well, yes, but...My rib-eye was far from being medium-rare. It was more towards being medium-well done. I guess that for 45,95$ I can expect perfection. I had a much better rib-eye steak at Longhorn's (maybe I was lucky there that day, I don't know) for a better price. My experience at Ruth's Chris just a few steps... More
