    We were seated where we had asked. Pleasant view and out of the way. Jory (waiter) was VG. Attentive without being overbearing or interruptive. Foor was tasty and nicely presented. We will be back.

    Spencer’s Kick Off Patio Season evening Tacos & Tequila special menu was a hit. The addition of the Mariachi Band and rock band made the patio dinner memorable. Looking forward to more patio dinners this season at Spencer’s. Cheers!

    This was my second time here and here was my experience...after trying a couple times to make reservations (for a table of 2) over the phone to no avail, I decided to walk in. Upon walking in, I was told by the hostess that no walk-ins were being taken because they are fully booked. I told her about trying to make a reservation over the phone, but she said there's nothing she could do, so I tried going online to book a reservation. Low and behold, there were MULTIPLE booking slots available. I proceed to book the next available table and she eventually had to seat us. **Strike 1. Upon settling in and after our waiter (the bartender) took our drink order, he regretfully shared that they ran out of mint so was not able to make my drink. Sure, I'll order another one. **Strike 2. We place our order for appetizers (salads) AND mains at around 7:30pm. 7:50pm rolls around, nothing to be seen. This is understandable if the restaurant was completely full, but they were not at full capacity. We decide to ask for dinner rolls as a snack while everything else arrives. Our waiter comes back from the kitchen and says they ran out of dinner rolls. **Strike 3. Note, at this point, I was skeptical if they'll even have our mains. We patiently wait for our food and our mains finally arrive around 8:30pm. When we are about finished, we asked for some take-out containers. GUESS WHAT? NO CONTAINERS?! **Strike 4. Our waiter did try to smooth things over by offering us a free dessert, but at that point, I was not sure if they'd even have the dessert I wanted to order so we turned it down. There WAS a reason why this was my second time coming to this restaurant thats 2 hours away from where I live. But their unpreparedness was very disappointing to say the least. Don't think there will be a third visit, unfortunately.

    Enjoyed ourselves. Felt a bit weird that they took our food order before drinks and we had to ask for drinks but it was a busy long weekend. They are very accommodating when my husband didn’t see an ingredient on the menu that he can’t have. It was his fault for not notching but the restaurant removed the meal as he didn’t touch it. All in all it was a nice day but felt the service was a bit rushed.

    Great vegan choices and really unique alcohol-free beverages. It got very busy so it was a little slow at the end but nice not to feel rushed and the server was attentive, just swamped.

    The venue is beautiful with a stunning view on the Lake. Food was amazing, fine cuisine at its very best. Main dishes turned out to be a bit large, especially after having our appetizers. We did not make it to dessert (haha). Staff were very friendly and attentive to our requests. It was a birthday celebration dining out. Great place to celebrate but it can also great for other occasions (there was a wedding in a separate hall but no noise reached us). Highly recommend!

    Initially we were seated indoors, but asked to be moved to the patio as there was a wedding party going on, which made the indoors quite noisy. The staff quickly accommodated our request to go to the patio, and we had a nice meal on a beautiful evening. The food was very good, and the staff was attentive to our needs. We would come again for a special occasion.

    Expensive, but good food and generous portions. Service was perfect. Sat outside which was more quiet than the steel drum band that was playing for (what looked like) a wedding. The band was good, but overwhelming for a dinner. The sun, the lake, the spring air … priceless.

    It’s unfortunate that other patrons in this restaurant feel that they’re entitled to make this place a form to provide loud entertainment within their group. They should be going somewhere else to celebrate a child’s birthday.  These patrons are selfish and they do not consider everybody else consideration to enjoy a wonderful experience here.

    Great service! We had someone ask to check our coats, which we happily obliged. Our server was attentive, great sense of humour and friendly! The reception was excellent and genuine at the front. Lastly, very grateful someone called to confirm the reservation and accommodated our table for 5. Spencers is our favourite spot to meet as we are from Stoney Creek and Toronto and Barrie, respectively. Thank you!

    Excellent waitstaff, extremely SLOW kitchen. Took over 1.5 hrs between the time our appetizer plates were cleared to get our main meals. Our waiter constantly was communicating with the kitchen to try to speed up the food and tried to make up for it by giving us free dessert. Many other tables experience the same issue and this is the 2nd time this happened to us at this restaurant. The first time we thought it was a one off… Thanks to our amazing waiter we had a good experience, but definitely don’t recommend going there if you don’t like waiting an absurdly long time for food.

    It is one of the best restaurant in the Burlington area for its quality and setting on the waterfront. The shrimp and scallop spaghetti entre was delicious cooked el dente, the rib eye beef with cheese sandwich was moist and full of flavour. Cappuccino coffee was prepared to perfection. It is a bit pricey but most restaurants are now. It is worth the experience and you wont be disappointed

    This was an embarrassing experience. I had taken my girlfriend and another couple to dinner at Spencer‘s expecting an excellent level of food and service to start with the waiter seem to be someone unfamiliar with the menu. After waiting some 15 minutes, we were told by our waiter that the meal would be delivered to our table in approximately 30 minutes. There was a problem in the kitchen. I suggested that we be provided with some bread in the meantime, which ultimately arrived, but it was stale. My dinner was absolutely terrible. I had ordered steak and it was so tough. It could be cut. I mentioned all this to the waiter who didn’t seem to have any answer to this problem other than to simply give me the bill at the end of the, someone who appeared to be and indicated that Spencer would provide me with a comp of some kind if I sent them my email address, which I did. I never received anything from Spencer the compensate me for what it was a terrible evening and generally very embarrassing one
