Steak execution was good, service was great (gluten free options for wife were well catered), but I won't give it 5 as the value for money is only okay. Other dishes ordered were a slight miss: the lobster ravioli lacked a little flavour (fish on top was done well though); and the mac and cheese would be good for an... More

Let's start with the ambiance of the place. Subdued lighting, big booths, it looks small but is not. Don't let the "its in a hotel" fool you. There is plenty of room. The staff were great. We had Hayley and her personality showed through. You can tell she enjoys her job which is important for the guests. She was quick... More

I was walking around downtown Salt Lake looking for a meeting venue for Monday morning. Just so happened I came across a Spencer's. It was only lunch time, but I try to have at least one good steak whenever I travel, so lunch it was. Atmosphere was what you might expect for this level of dining; this dining room is... More

While we did not dine at Spencer’s for steak, we did enjoy a light supper at Spencer’s. The beef sliders and fries were perfectly prepared and very tasty. The service was friendly and professional from waitress to server to manager. The atmosphere encourages dinner conversation. Spencer’s would be a good choice for a special dinner celebration.

A group of us (10) went to Spencer's after my daughter's graduation. Was a very good experience. Great menu -- my favorite was the chops. Wine list was very big (if not a little over priced). Decor is that of an old steak house ... Leather seats, deep colors, etc... Service staff was top notch.

17 of us went for dinner on a Sunday and we were able to give the restaurant one hour's notice. They were able to seat us (truth be told, not too many other customers) and our waiters were some of the best I have had. Super skills in service. They should teach a class for other servers!!

I ate at Spencers several times while staying at the attached Hilton. Great food. I had the Spencers Salad several times. I also had the spaghetti squash, french onion soup, ice cream.

My wife turned 40 this weekend and for her birthday, all she said was that she wanted a good steak. As a frequent diner of Spencer's, I considered several other restaurants such as the New Yorker, Ruths Chris, even Christopher's.
