We love going to Spencer's! My wife and daughter are vegetarians, and have been for a couple years.... BUT, when we go to Spencer's, my daughter HAS to eat the steak! It's incredible. Beautiful place too! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My husband I go here a couple times a year! You can't beat the view. Get there early for a spot on the patio in the summer. Food is good and the service is excellent.

Sunday Brunch- waste of money!!! Too many people, hot, uncomfortable, not honouring reservations, waiting for ever, etc. Food choices very limited, out of stock, not available, tasteless, bar was very slow... Raw potato, lack of plates?????? What is going there????? This is unbelievable change. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!!

Revisited Spencer's for Sunday Brunch. We came in for a 2:30 reservation, and were told by Emma, one of the managers, that they're very busy and that we'll need to wait. So we stood around awkwardly in the reception area, with servers, clueless hosts, and guests from a private party running back and forth in the crowded area. The flow... More

Spencers at the waterfront is a great place for Brunch or Dinner. The portions are reasonable sizes. During warmer weather, the balcony is a pleasant place to overlook the reflecting pond and Lake Ontario

We had dinner last night at Spencers. We had a reservation but had to wait in a cramped bar area for our table. Bartenders were slow and uninterested in serving us and when they finally did, they struggled to make a basic martini. Finally at our table the service was unbelievably slow and the waitress seemed flustered and inexperienced. We... More

This is a top end dining experience with a lake view setting. We were welcomed warmly and met the manager,Emma. Our server,Robert was extremely knowledgable,friendly and helpful. His awareness of best rated dishes was very helpful. The pear and endive salad was great as was my wife's Caesar salad. The striploin with roast potatoes and unique horseradish sauce was tasty...

Was taken for my birthday. Wonderful location. Service was fine, but prices are high and menu is limited. Caesar salad was different...not worth the $. The steaks were very good, but expensive. I think there are many other places in Burlington that offer good food and better value overall...

My husband had a 10 oz. strip loin that he said was perfectly done and delicious, but wasn't impressed with vegetable side (potato undercooked). My special (black cod with maple syrup/miso glaze) was very good with yummy coconut jasmine rice and bok choy. Service was good. Overall enjoyable, but pricey! Not a place I would regularly go to. More for... More

Beautiful setting with great views, service was excellent. Overall the meals we have had here have been quite good but overall pricing is rather expensive. a once in a while stopover still tho is worth it.....

Thank James0599
