One of my favorite places in Waldo. The food is predictably delicious. My go to is the salmon salad and creme brulee. Hubby is more adventurous and I enjoy tasting all his selections.

We were sat a table wet from the AC unit leaking on it. Had to ask to move because my husband was getting dripped on. Coffee came with no cream or sugar, had to ask for both after the fact (had to request sugar 3 times actually). And then noticed our coffee cups were filthy around the rims with something green. We decided to get our check and leave before ordering food.

The food is fabulous. Everything I have ordered here is exceptional. The best fried chicken salad in KC. The chicken fried chicken and ahi tuna second to none. High quality food at very reasonable prices. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because of the noise level. It is extremely loud at busy times.

Very loud, wobbly end table of banquet seating even though I made a reservation in advance and there were far better tables available. Server forgot about us twice, seemed too busy flirting at another table. Food was cold when we got it.

The upsides are many. Good food, good service and it's affordable. But if you want to talk to your table companion without yelling, I'd skip it. The atmosphere is lovely, don't get me wrong, but the restaurant is quite large which lends to a very loud and energetic experience. Great if you are in a party mood, not so great if you are looking for a quiet date night.

I always enjoy coming to Summit Grill! The bottomless mimosas are always a hit with me and my friends. I just wish the servers were a little nicer. But overall it's a great place to go to celebrate any occasion.

Totally enjoyed our brunch on Saturday. I've dined at the Lee's Summit location multiple times for lunch and dinner. My first time at this location. The food was delicious. The brunch menu is pretty small but they were accommodating to my requests to modify my omelet. They should offer a "build your own" omelet selection. But, again, the food was yummy. The restaurant is beautiful, albeit a tad noisy. We found ourselves leaning in or saying what quite a bit. Overall, a good experience and I'll definitely go back!

This was our second time using Summit Grill for our monthly brunch gathering and it was just as great as we remembered it! Good service, delicious food, and it wasn’t as loud as last time so it was an even better experience!

I’ve dined at this location many times before, but yesterday’s dining experience was my favorite thus far. Our server was polite, attentive, and knowledgeable. He recommended the better food and drink options leaving us satisfied and excited to return. The meal was 10/10 and the updated cocktail list a winner.

Thanks Summit!

I have been to Summit Grill several times and have been pleased with the service and food, however this time not so much. Let me start by saying the food was great, but the service was horrible! Our waitress didn't want to refill our bottomless mimosas, our orders were wrong, and our waitress spent a lot of time talking to her friends at the table next to us. It wasn't until we asked to speak to a manager, that her quality of service changed.

The bartenders we’re wonderful. Very personable. The waiter suggested items that we really enjoyed. We will definitely be back with friends. Even just us for the amazing food. I want to try everything on the menu. I can speak personally for the blackened chicken pasta, the pot roast and oh my, the chicken fried chicken is the best in the Metro.

Energetic noise level does not describe accurately the noise level. We had to all but yell across the the table to hear one another. I was dining with my parents and my partners parents and they couldn’t hear above the loud echoes through your establishment. I love summit grill but even for me at 32, it is extremely loud

Summit Grill is my favorite neighborhood place for happy hour and brunch. The food is awesome and the service is consistently excellent. It never disappoints and I always take out of town guests there as well. I'm so glad it replaced the 75th Brewery that was in that space for so long. Love SUMMIT GRILL!
