I've been there twice. Once for dinner with people from work a couple of years ago and again this past weekend for lunch. My lunch experience: service and food, were far better than my dinner.

Checked out this restaurant on our last trip. The food was delicious and the ambiance was a plus. Parking is tough so an uber or taxi is your best bet. We had dinner and definitely will return to Spencer's on our next visit.
