“Best Steaks in Utah?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

The host greeted us and stated that Spencer's had the best steaks in Utah. The 20 ounce ribeye was really good and cooked to order. Spencer's is a good alternative to other higher-end steakhouses.

“High Quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

you pay for what you get in life and in steak... this place is amazing and a wonderful option for a fancy steak dinner... be prepared to spend a bit of money, but at the same time if you're not unbuttoning your pants before the night is out (either b/c of how full you are or because you took her to this place) then something is wrong.

“Food exquisite, staff stretched thin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

You have to try the Wagyu fillet. WOW - an excellent steak prepared medium rare. Needed NO extra seasoning, Bearnaise, or anything. Mac n cheese delightful with "candied" bacon. We ordered grilled asparagus but it seemed to be sauteed. It was still good. Nice choice of wines. Lobster was already gone by 7pm (hmmm, really?) on a Sat night. Explains why the lobster was a bit missing from the bisque. Nice ambiance - except for the grandparents who brought two very small (ages 2 and 6 months) children in with them. Unfortunately the staff was short handed. Our waiter seemed to have all the tables in the entire restaurant.

“Good food, high prices and lousy service time and again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Attended a conference at the Hilton and went to Spencers several times because of location. Food was pretty good, prices were extremely high and service was horrible. The last time we went there was a group of about 8 of us. Three of the wait staff just stood and stared at us and wouldn't come to our table. So after nasty service the last 3 times we had been there, we left and walked the short distance to Squatters where we were promtly served and had a great time. I would pass on Spencer's.

“Good foor, poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Perhaps it was a bad waiter, but it took 30 minutes to get a drink and another 30 min just to take our order on 7/31. Had to talk to the manager twice to get some attention. Place was busy, but not at capacity. When the food arrived, it was great. Most of our group had steaks which were outsanding. The manager comped all of our appetizers, which was appreciated. Would not return here because of the service, however.
