As always, Summit Grill provided a great experience with their food and service. We had reservations and were sat immediately without a wait. The waiter did a great job of ensuring that our drinks were full and the food came out quickly. With it being St. Valentine's Day, you'd think that it would be busy and chaotic but that wasn't the case.

Summit Grill has never let us down. Service is always great and the food is delicious. I had the prime rib dip and the meat is tender and horseradish sauce is incredible. My date had the chicken fried chicken and the chicken was perfectly fried. The portion was huge and definitely had enough for another meal. We had the s’more ice cream cake. Incredible! Summit Grill is always a go-to when we want great food and service.

This is the second year in a row that we’ve gone to Summit Grill for Valentine’s day & we also do a lot of happy hours here. The food is very good & the service is fun & friendly. When the bar is full it does seem to get pretty noisy which also carries into the dining room area but still it’s a great place to hang out.

Took my mother for lunch. Everyone is very nice and the food is outstanding. The one problem is the noise level. It was lunchtime and the music was BLARING. And because of this everyone was having to scream at each other to hear. I did ask if they would turn the music down a little and they were very nice about it and did turn it down which made the rest of the lunch a better experience.

We had to wait over an hour for our “reserved” table. Service was fine, but when asked to turn down the deafening music- it was ignored. Could not hear the person next to me and seating is tight quarters.

Hostess was slow to acknowledge us and process customers coking in the door. Seemed understaffed. Took a long time to get drinks, but it was a peak time. Food was ok. Over cooked pork. Our drink bill alone was $120 for two of us - 8 drinks. Easily twice as much as expected.

We love the Summit brunch—particularly the bottomless grapefruit mimosas! While it’s very busy and loud, the food, service, and experience has always been top notch. Well done!

DO NOT PASS THIS PLACE UP!!! Wait was very reasonable, 5-10 minutes on a Saturday, Server was friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu and special items and the food was incredibly good. Had the poutine for an appetizer(competes with Canadian poutine), wife had the Chicken Carbonara and I had the Ribeye. Everything was to perfection and the dessert was the Smores ice cream cake-this was one of the best desserts I have ever had. I have already recommended this place to at least 4-5 people it was so good.

Summit Grill is one of our go-to brunch spots for any friend or family gathering. I would suggest however that if you're brunching with family to plan for a Sunday, as Saturday is usually busy and very loud.

The Jalapeno Cheese Grits in a Jar were unexpectedly delicious, the brioche french toast - amazing! We occasionally order the french toast for the table to share along with (as weird as it might sound) a side of Summit's mac 'n' cheese, generously coated in a creamy cheese sauce.

The table agreed that the Ultimate Omelette was a little lackluster. Oh and don't forget to enjoy your bottomless mimosas!

Love Summit Grill. Hate the noise. If they invested in noise absorption panels, we'd eat there a lot more often. It's hard to hear the people at the other end of the table. The last night we were there, service was not good but I hope that is just an off night. We had to ask where our drinks were after 20 minutes. We filled our own water glasses. Our wine glasses stayed empty most of the night. They did warn they were short staffed and we have had great evenings there other times.

Super tasty food! Love the atmosphere, can’t believe it is the old 75th St Brewery....good server but he was so, so busy, the place is much bigger than it seems so those servers have a lot of area to cover. Looking forward to going again soon!

We went there as a family to celebrate a birthday. The service and food was good, but the portions were a tad on the small side considering what we had to pay for them. The noise level was extremely loud and it was very hard to even hear the one sitting next to you. They need to space out their seating too. The way it’s set up now isn’t working. Once your seated and your chairs pulled out, it’s constantly being bumped by either the wait staff or other patrons. I’m sorry to say, but if you’re a bit on the bigger side, you wouldn’t fit between the rows. Overall, the food would bring me back, but not on a busy weekend night. If you like screaming to your table mates, then this place is for you.

We had a group of 8. They were very accommodating and even seated us early. Ordered from the Restaurant Week menu. 3 got steaks, 4 got Shrimp Rissoto and one the Fried Chicken. Shrimp Rissoto and Fried Chicken were very good. Of the three steaks two were ordered medium rare and came out very rare. One was sent back and came back okay. The third steak was ordered medium and came out well done and very tough. It was obvious that it was not the same cut of steak as the other two. It was much smaller and half as thick. Sides were good and dessert was excellent.
