My sister reserved this restuarant for my nieces wedding shower. Service was amazing. We were greeted in a very warm welcoming manner. Our waitress was excellent and very efficient serving all 13 of us ladies. Nice atmosphere and beautiful inside. There was a wedding in the glass room at the end which was nicely set up. I would recommend this... More

Having heard so much about Spencer's over the years we decided to jump into the down deep end and see what it was all about. As you drive into the reserved parking there's a kid on a stool asking if you have a reservation, he seemed pleasant but understandably a little bored. Parked, walked in and there was a faint...

They took all the noise-reducing materials away but it looks very modern and sparkly. The food is still awesome and staff do a great job. I would go back but not for romantic dinner or quiet evening. The brunch is always the best in town!

Four of us went for dinner, looking forward to see the renovated location. We were seated promptly, but waited a long time for drinks. When we were ready to order, we had to wait while the server went away to find the fish specials menu, even though we already knew it. Part of the required process, apparently. Salads expensive and... More

My boyfriend and myself, along with his parents enjoyed a great brunch at Spencers. The service was great, our server was attentive and we never waited long for our coffees. The atmosphere is very nice. Get a window or patio seat if you can as it over looks the lake. The food was excellent. When you first look at the... More

My wife and I recently joined 2 other couples for lunch at Spencer's on Burlington's waterfront. The service was good, the menu had a good variety and the seafood was plentiful. There were two market special fish selections and most of the table had Arctic Char either as a main or on one of their salads. The view out to... More

We had gone to Spencer's for dinner for a special occasion and were quite disappointed with the service and food quality (cold meal sent back and returned cold). I had written them and the general manager got in touch with me and invited us back. We went for Sunday brunch and received the service and food quality that I had... More

Had a Sunday brunch there on July17th. Booked it a month earlier for a big group, it's pricy but it worth the view, food and great service. It's a champion breakfast after 11am. Kim the manager was so professional and the restaurant looks beautiful modern look. The view was amazing and definitely going back to taste the winter look of... More

This is an upscale restaurant so if you are not aware of this you will be surprised when you receive your bill.. We visited with a large group for a birthday dinner. It was absolutely perfect. The food was fantastic, the ambiance was great, the view was great. Everyone enjoyed their meals and their evening. Staff was friendly and patient... More
