“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

I had lunch at the Spencer Country Inn with a friend last week and was completely delighted. It was like stepping back into the 1950 s -- but the good part of the 50 s. The food was wonderful-- we had steak and an open-faced roast beef sandwhich -- and the prices incredibly reasonable. The desserts -- right out of the 50 s again -- were a joy. The wait staff was very attentive and pleasant. The decor of the dining room and the whole site was charming and filled with authentic vintage pieces and antiques. I don t know why this little gem of a place hasn t been discovered by more people.

“Nice atmosphere, good food and very reasonable prices, but slow service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2011

Beautiful, rustic atmosphere, comfortable surroundings but service was extremely slow the day we went for lunch. Menu options are limited, but the prices can't be beat. The Sunday brunch is quite good at a very reasonable price. Best to visit during the spring/summer when their gardens are in full bloom.

“Best Thanksgiving Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2011

This year I decided to give myself a break and go out to dinner on Thanksgiving. After much searching on the internet I decided on the Spencer Country Inn since the price was right and it's located in my neighborhood. From the moment I made reservations for four I had complete confidence I had made the right decision. I was greeted with wonderful customer service from the very first phone call to the moment I left the restaurant.
First of all the banquet hall was beautifully decorated and has a huge fireplace with a talented keyboard musician to create a warm, welcoming atmosphere. We were seated immediately at our table and promptly a waitress appeared to take any drink orders.
The buffet had everything you could want for a holiday dinner from fresh fruit and salads, roasted turkey, perfectly roasted prime rib, a seafood newburg dish, absolutely delicious butternut squash, mashed potatoes, mac & cheese and a wonderful selection of desserts. Even beverages like coffee & cider were included in the very reasonable cost.
Best of all was the comfortable, cordial atmosphere created by the staff and servers that made us all feel right at home.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2011

I have been to the Spencer Country Inn several times over the years. For weddings, Showers, Birthdays and Corporate Functions.

I have always found the staff to be exceptional. Phyllis, Louise, Amy and the wait and cook staff are experienced hospitality professionals.

I have an event scheduled there this month. Which is my 2nd corporate event. The food is great, the price a great value.

The atmosphere is lovely. Rustic, New England charm.
