My grandson and I arrived late to the hotel. We went to Spencer's to eat. I had the French onion soup and club sandwich both were delicious. My grandson had a burger that he said was good. The service was wonderful. If you are late or want something to eat, don't worry Spencer's is a very good place to eat.

Nothing real special about this place, just convenient inside hotel. Prices were a little steep for what you get.

We stayed at the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel, and had only a half hour to grab drinks and something to eat. We split a chicken quesadilla which was served quickly and was very tasty. They had a nice selection of local wines, and the bartender did provide samples when asked. That bartender was otherwise very unfriendly. When one of us... More

We stayed a the Grand Canyon hotel in which Spenser's is located. After dinner at a restaurant outside of the hotel, we decided that rather than just sitting around in our room we'd try Spenser's. It's a nicely decorated pub, the service was good and the specialty drinks were good.

I ordered a pizza with just Italian sausage, mushrooms, and peppers. The pizza i got had no peppers. Covered in olives!!! I HATE olives. I haven't seen the server in 30 min now. She is going to have my pizza redone..

The food was excellent. But, be ready to wait for it. We ate there twice and waited both times. They were very understaffed. No fault of the servers who were great but they were spread too thin.

This bar is in the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel that doesn't open until 4 pm. The bar itself is one of the most ornate I have seen. Having said that, there were too few wait staff for the number of people in the bar. Service was friendly, but slow. The bar menu was adequate. We went to the bar twice... More

Nice atmosphere but bartender wasn't very friendly. Seemed like she hated her job and you felt it. People you drink next to engage you in conversation though and make it a nice place for a nite cap.

Had dinner and quick breakfast. Staff was accomodating. Thought prices were kind of high for ala cart breakfast..i.e. $4 for self serve oatmeal. However my husband did have a great bloody mary!
