Spencer's for Steaks and Chops Restaurant Review

: With its modern, expansive dining room glittering in glass, well-stocked wine closets and hues of sand and khaki, Spencer's offers more than the casual name suggests. The food has a straightforward style and is prepared with a right-on technique. Your USDA Prime aged steak is cooked to order --- Kansas City strip and bone-in rib-eye, among others. Steak alternatives include sesame-crusted ahi and free-range chicken. Sides don't disappoint either, and range from lobster mac ā€˜nā€™ cheese to roasted garlic mashed potatoes. Salads are substantial. Crystal stemware and a carefully chosen, by-the-glass wine program featuring key American producers add to the luxurious, and understandably pricey, experience.
