Since we had to spend the night in SLC my husband said we could get a great steak at Spencer's! It turned out to be only a few blocks from our hotel as well! We did not have reservation but were quickly seated in the bar area, where we could have dinner and did. It was a very tiny booth,... read more

Service and food were excellent. This is the type of place where they care about the customer. A little pricey but that what you're paying for too. Excellent menu and the meals were great.

Whenever in Salt Lake City, you have to head to Spencer's for a Steak. I travel a lot for work and am often eating at hotel restaurants or downtown restaurants. I am called a steak "snob" by my wife and many friends and I am very picky. Spencer's did not disappoint one bit and I will be returning when I... More

Whenever in Salt Lake City I try to make it to Spencer's for Steak and Chops. Seldom do I have a poor experience. My last visit was different. I brought some business associates out for dinner.

Upon entering the room, I was staring at the walls filled with the 1920s decor. Automatically, you feel like you're reliving the past of how it would have looked like in the 20s and 30s. Music matched the dim lit restaurant. The staff....oh the staff!!!! Make sure to have Mr Scott serve you! His knowledge of food is impeccable. He... More

Service always very good here, but my bone in rib eye was blue in the middle when it was supposed to be medium. I think a steak restaurant needs to cook steak to perfection. Probably as a result if being under done, steak was not really tender, juicy as it should have been, but a little tough and sinewy actually.... More

This steak house is located in the Hilton. The service is great. A very interesting wine list with some unique bottles. A bit pricey but acceptable.

5 star. Really the best steak I have ever had! Perfect meal and perfect service. Kevin was our server and he was attentive but not overbearing. Extremely helpful and attentive. Attention to detail and superb food make this a 5 star review.
