A word from SUMMER
Literally a step away from the Granville stop on the Red Line in Rogers Park, Summer is the perfect place to enjoy Thai and Pan-Asian fares. At Summer, you'll find everything from traditional curry and stir-fried noodle dishes on the menu, to the deliciously unique Scallop Dynamite and Panang Salmon. We hope that you enjoy many memorable dining experiences with us.

    Summer was a great find. The food was delicious and we love the BYOB. Was the perfect spot before heading over to a production at Berger Park theater on the lake. Easy to get to by public transportation. Will be back.

    I have always loved Summer and will continue to do so. The service is consistent - all the ladies have an accent but is definitely understandable. The Crab Rangoon is always on point - crispy and hot!

    I took my girlfriend here for Valentine's Day. The decor is nice, they added a few special touches because of the occasion. However, the ambience did not reflect the rest. They took 10-15 minutes from the time we arrived to the time they took our order and even longer for our food to arrive (the place had very few people, and it is a small restaurant). I tried their Pad Thai (which wasn't to my liking) and asked if I could order another dish instead because I didn't like it, which prompted the waitress to go for another 10-15 minutes to ask if I would receive a refund for the Pad Thai. Afterwards, I asked for a dessert list, never came back so decided to just ask for the bill, which was another wait. Nearly $40 for 1 good dish. Not worth it

    Went with family to try it out as I have been looking for a Thai restaurant since I loved to the area that wasn't overpriced. Had the Scallops Dynamite, the Tilapia special and Hot Popeye Noodles and a couple of appetizers including the cucumber salad. Liked the pineapple dressing. Will order from them for take-out.

    I always come here for lunch because its near my school. I like their crab rang goons & lunch special. I also like how they give 10% discount to students if you pay in cash. I am Thai & I eat a lot of thai food in chicago and in Thailand. Their food is not that authentic but it is good. The servers are friendly.

    You definitely do NOT need a reservation. We walked in and were seated without asking if we made a reservation. People came in sweatpants to pick up food and take home. Definitely not a super fancy restaurant like my boyfriend and I thought, so I was SUPER OVERDRESSED!!!! Jeans and a hoodie would still be appropriate and I was in a black dress, tights, and 5" heels. Food was alright, but I was kind of disappointed. I probably won't go back.

    Probably one of the most AMAZING meals I have eaten in Chicago. Attention to every last detail in this meal and a delightful array of colors and textures. The staff love to help, enjoy serving, just can't give this one anything but perfect. Since we live close, it will be a regular night out!
