We were looking for something nice since we traveled on Thanksgiving. Friend of daughter suggested Spencer's. $42.00 for a loaded plate of Thanksgiving with turkey on top of everything. No real separation of food just plopped plate. One of us ordered a steak for $44.00 that was medium well when ordered medium rare. By the time staff came around to... More

Spencer's is in the Hilton hotel. They claim to have the best steakhouse in town. Just by judging form Friday and Saturday nights sparce crowds I would question that. I did get a salad and sashimi. It was nothing special.

This Steak House is a fantastic dining experience. I love local restaraunts and this one does not disappoint. Try the "Slab Bacon" with home made peanut butter and brittle. Also ,try the Rhode Island Style Calamari and the Tuna appetizer. For the meals, everything was enjoyed. For sides, I would stongly recommed the Corn dish.

After a mind numbing, all day meeting, I decided to go here for a steak, because it was in the Hilton where I was staying. The atmosphere is really nice; however, it is a bit loud. I had a ribeye, a half order of brussels sprouts, and a cup of decaf. My bill with tip was $69. My steak had... More

Overall, I would say this place is great. We had an unbelievable appetizer of bacon with peanut butter and jelly, which was fantastic. However, our steaks lacked some flavor and were actually bland. This was surprising to us in that this place was touted to be the best steak in Utah. It was a great atmosphere and service was top... More

I had a business dinner at Spencer's while at a conference. The place is big enough to accommodate a large party. I had the filet mignon with the smashed potatoes. Overall, the food was good and fresh but way too expensive for what it was. The staff was very friendly though.
