    Get the large steak sandwich. Not really a sandwich - more like a ribeye thrown on top of garlic bread and smothered with fries. To die for.

    Call early to get reservations, have your whole party show up on time and be prepared to wait anyway. The place is dingy and loud but the steak is great. Is it worth it?

    Prepare to wait even with a reservation. I wasn't too impressed with the food. Not to say it was bad or that I wouldn't go back. I'm just saying I've had better.

    The Small spencer is big, so I can't imagine what a large is like, but very good, and ice cream included awesome

    18 oz. filet mignon not big enough for you? Get the extra cut for an extra 10 oz. of steak. That's the biggest filet I've ever seen (& eaten)

    You MUST get the Spencer cut...Also, they usually under cook the steaks. Even if you ask for medium, most likely, it'll come out medium-rare.
