Service was great. We sat outside with the heaters on and it was perfectly pleasant. Seating is well distanced inside too for those who are vaccinated (or feel comfortable with that). I brought gift certificates from years ago and they still honored them. We had the bolognese and spicy salami pizza which were excellent and finished the meal with a salted chocolate chip cookie - it was fabulous from beginning to end.
Really bland food, I only liked the hot chocolate. Managers attempted to accommodate for something else, but for my taste, I declined.
The environment was lovely and the tables spaced far apart. Food was great....
Hope to visit there again
There wasn’t enough staff to cover how busy it was
The food was great! The salmon and mahi mahi tasted very fresh!
Highly recommend their brunch and outdoor seating - even when it’s 30 degrees out, their heaters keep you warm!
Food was ok. Service wasn't that great. It's a pretty place, but I'd rather go elsewhere for the price.
Great waitress and food was very good.
It was good, my husband and I were just excited to be out of the house, so we weren’t too picky. It’s pretty pricey for the quality of food and portion. Also, 2 out of the 3 main entrees were sold out and our reservation was at 7, so not too late. My husband ordered 2 entrees just to find out they were both sold out, the waitress should have told us right when she walked up to the table.
Loved my waitress, super nice. Unfortunately I didn't get her name. But the service was amazing
Great Valentine’s Day dining!
Matthew was my waiter and he was amazing!!!!
Been here a couple of times but first time during Brunch with family on V-day the first day MoCo allowed the battered restaurant business for indoor dining @ 25% capacity. Ordered chix & waffles, three eggs breakfast, 2 burrito breakfast mealm w/ sweet potato crinkle cut fries and a shoestring fries & a spicy chix sandwich. An extra side of pancake was added. That extra side was $4😱. A bit shocked but it is North Bethesda. Our server was nice & cheerful but there is room for improvement. She did not check if we needed drink refills. Capped our meal with a fudge brownie and I would give a 6/10 on a scale.
a chilly night but food was on point and the wine recommendation worked well.
Wonderful waitress!! Food was delicious. Expensive but worth it!
I love summer house and go there all the time but I don’t think they’ve quite mastered the outdoor covid dining. It was freezing - the heat lamp situation isn’t quite there and they jacked up the prices. You can’t make people pay double to sit outside in the cold.
They are doing a great job with covid rules plus friendly, fast service without rushing. Very well done all around.
We understand that there was only outside seating. There was no heat in the tents though. A little heat would have made for a more enjoyable dinner.
The food was great but the service was very slow. We waited 20min to get a table even though we had a reservation. They also mixed up the orders so the food took a really long time to get to us.
Went for lunch and they had many options for seating outside. Food was delicious as always.
Food was incredible, one of the best burgers around. Service is incredible
Food was quite good and service was outstanding, particularly when considering the outdoor setup. Our only issue is that the outdoor tent we were in was cold. We were told the heaters are kept off until someone is seated so cut costs. I understand that, but if you have a reservation maybe turn it on a few minutes before their scheduled arrival. The outdoor chairs are metal which accentuates the cold making it more noticeable. Other than that singular, and somewhat understandable issue, the experience was quite good and we will return. Highly recommended!
This restaurant was great! The food was very delicious and portioned well. Service was quick, efficient, and very polite. The drinks were well made, I personally had the spiked hot cocoa since it was cold out and it was very good with a kick to it. Only con is that it is a little pricey.
Outdoor dining due to COVID. The restaurant has heat lamps and several canopies available.
Summer House has always been one of my favorites since it opened at Pike & Rose, but during this pandemic, they have been my "go to" favorite, as the food is just as delicious, great menu selection, they follow all protocols for safety, and the staff are still super friendly, even as you can tell they are freezing as we have to dine outside per Elrich, the lunatic. Thank you Summer House Staff for making Brunch and dinner wonderful, making all feel as if all is well...the smiles, the above and beyond efforts to make customers feel like family, welcomed and fed very well are outstanding. I will Always continue to go to Summer House, and applaud their outstanding efforts to offer a wonderful experience even during these crazy mandates that make zero sense. Thank you!!
We asked for half price wings she charged us full price
When I said something to her she was like you pointed to full price wings
And I know I didn’t pointed to full price cos when I checked on my phone it was opened to half price app menu.
But we paid full price we didn’t wanted to argue with her
Hello, I am so sorry for this. My name is Clay and I am one of the managers here. This is absolutely against of our standards of service here. I will be following up with you privately on this to make things right. Thanks, Clay Tormey
Overall great experience!! I think three groups in one tent is too much. I would feel more comfortable with only 2 groups in a tent at opposite ends.
Overall - this was a horrible experience. Summerhouse/Stella Barra North Bethesda does not know how to do outdoor (COVID) seating. All of our Food came out cold. I requested NO horseradish in Bloody Mary and had to return the drink 3 times - still got horse radish. Ambience - the heated tent was NOT heated. Additionally, other guests should be refrained from holding their phone conversations on speaker phone. Requested host to stop our neighbor in our tent from loud speaker phone conversation and host refused. Very cold. Value - for the price they charge for a simple burger, should come to the table hot and cooked to order. Medium rare came out very well done..... Won't be back. I do NOT HAVE 1 REASON FOR REFERRING RESTAURANT. I really do NOT have any reason to recommend.
Hello, My name is Clay and I am one of the managers here. I am so sorry to hear about your experience here. Sounds like from the drinks to the atmosphere to the food, there was much to be improved. The experience you had is absolutely unacceptable and I am so sorry. I am going to be following up with you privately on this. Thank you for taking the time to let us know. Clay Tormey
Always a brunch hotspot
I really enjoyed my experience at this restaurant. I will be returning again.
Nice set up outside. Good food and service.
Kind waiters and employees
Amazing food, friendly and warm service. We ate outside in a cute little heated tent due to COVID regulations in MD. Our server, Matthew, was phenomenal and so friendly. Definitely the place to go in Pike and Rose!
It was blasting cold outside in the tent, but the heaters really did make it fully bearable. The food was delicious and the servers were on the spot and attentive, couldn't ask for more.
Loved a new atmosphere, service was great from when we stepped into the door. Brunch menu was minimal but the food was great. Mimosas were amazing! Wish we could’ve bought something from the bakery but there was only one attendant helping others.
Other than the wait for our table despite a reservation our outdoor dining experience was great. Food arrived warm and quickly, we stayed warm dining al fresco
We ate outside at a high top table for 2. Not the best spot but it was ok
New Year’s Day Dining in PJ’s is something my family looks forward to annually. Show up in pj’s and receive gift cards equal to the value of your meal, to be used on a future visit.
This was our 4th year going. Despite COVID, the food and service were impeccable. However, it was sad to see the inside shut down due to COVID dining restrictions. In years past, the restaurant was packed with customers and workers all wearing their favorite pajamas.
But on a positive note, we still were able to enjoy ourselves in our heated, mini greenhouse tent and wear our pjs. Also, COVID guidelines were adhered to by all which created a safer environment everyone.
We ate in the outdoor tents. Fairly decent air flow. Waiter was cool. Food was great.
Another Excellent meal and experience at Summer House. In spite of the RIDICULOUS MoCo restrictions, Summer House was incredible as they made it so comfortable as it was a cold day outside. The staff was as friendly and upbeat as ever, even though I could tell they were cold. I hope Summer House Corporate will lead the charge and SUE ELRICH for these "Mandates" that aren't laws, and based on FALSE DATA.
