Positives: Spencer’s cooks their steaks on a 1,600 degrees Fahrenheit grill. There’s only one other steak joint in the Spokane metro that cooks their meat on a hotter grill (Churchills at 2,200 degrees F.). There are a lot of factors that go into cooking a perfect steak — meat quality, cut, fat content, seasoning, freshness, aging, etc — but the factor I look toward most is “how hot do you keep your grill?” Which is the question I ask when answering the server’s question, “how would you like your steak cooked?”

I’m not looking for 375 degrees to ladle a spoon full pancake batter over. To cook a steak to Pittsburgh Style perfection, the grill must be dangerously hot. Spencer’s gets it, which is why they are the second best steak joint in the metro and among our finest of dining experiences.

Spencer's Zabuton Cut
Spencer’s Zabuton cut cooked to a perfect Pittsburgh Style. The Zabuton is like a fattier filet, tender and delicious, it’s taken from the chuck flap in the upper shoulder.

Negatives: Heads-up, Spencer’s is expensive. Like a proper dinner for two is about a car payment expensive.

Spencer's $10.50 baked potato.
Spencer’s $10.50 baked potato is dressed at the table and worth every penny.

Recommendation: Spencer’s is one of Spokane’s best restaurants. Perfect cuts of meat cooked over a high heat paired with a robust list of fine wines and libations. You will not be disappointed.

Graham's 40 Year Tawny Port
That’s a 40 year Graham’s. If you’re not closing a meal with a 40 year Graham’s when given the opportunity, then you and I are not friends anymore.
