We had dinner here with a group of about 10 people. We split a number of appetizers: Spinach and artichoke dip, which was flavorless and liver pate, which was the best thing we ate all night. For an entree, several of us ordered the Garlic...More

Perhaps Sunday night is not the time to visit Spencer’s. When we arrived we were pleasantly greeted and seated. There was a group in but we were not seated right next to them which was nice. The waitress came for our drinks. Two members asked...More

They do not serve weak cocktails. Order any drink and you’ll know you’ve had a cocktail. Food is also consistently good. Great atmosphere, not too loud to carry on a conversation.

They have good shrimp, pork chops and salads. Tried their scallops last time and never again. Some were over cooked, others raw. Their drinks are expensive but good.

Questions & Answers
Does this seem scarey and unsafe? I would be very worried going to a restaurant where the Owner/manager is verbally and physically, abusive to women while they are in the restaurant and even when forcibly takin their cell phone and invading their privacy. Really have a problem with place where owner/manager takes a gun and carries it when he is not the owner and does not have a license for it and carries it(into the restaurant) without a carry permit for it(illegal).Along with that, stealing prescription meds(class 2 on DEA list,seems that would be a felony) and also having access to that gun(not a good or safe combination)Especially when he has been reviewed as going off on patrons in a narcissistic and inapproriate way especially when these patrons used to frequently go there and take clients . Also has local authorities look the other way and not hold him accountable for his illegal actions because of his personal friendships with them. Seems liquor control should have a problem with this person's actions and look into getting the liquor license out of his name. I wouldn't put friends and/or family at risk with that type of person in control(or out of control).

Are you sure this is Spencers in Saginaw Michigan on Gratiot? We have been going there for years. I can't imagine that owner acting like this.
