Much Better this time

We've been here before and although always good, at times the food quality hasn't matched the price. This time it was a hit for all of us. We had shrimp cocktails, 2 ordered chicken and 2 ordered filets. This place is always busy when the Jazz are playing (arena right across the street) so the... read more

we had seafood which may have been the reason for the indifference at best for the service we got tonite at Spencer's. my client and I acknowledged this was a 'hotel' restaurant and bought into the Trip Advisor suggestions but this place should not be on your top 10 in this market.

We enjoyed dinner here while in town on business. Steaks were perfect, highly recommended! We also enjoyed the sauteed mushrooms as a side. Outstanding service. Highly recommended.

Great food and service, the braised short ribs off of the appetizers were awesome. Sat at the bar and were well taken care of.

We eat here about once a year when we travel to SLC. It's always great food and our waiter, Scott, was really excellent. Spencer's continues to be one of the best chop houses in the country.

I had room service from here whilst staying at the Hilton and was so disappointed. My room service menu did not mention bacon with the mushrooms I ordered - not great if you are vegetarian. Fortunately, I am not. The mushrooms tasted of nothing but salt and the bacon added was just lots of cubes of fat. These bits of... More

Visiting from California. Not really interested in going to Ruth's Chris next door. Bartender Jerry recommended the filet mignon. Great choice. Jerry is a great bartender. He knows his craft. Steak was cooked perfectly. Charcuterie plate was also a great appetizer. Would definitely recommend Spencer's to anyone looking for a great cocktail and an even better meal

We had dinner here with a group. The food was typical high- end steakhouse fare; great steaks, sides, drink menu. We sat for hours while each course was served! I don't know if it was to have us keep purchasing bottles of wine, or what- but we literally had time to digest each course before the next! If you want... More
