I would definitely recommend the Summit Grill. A beautiful restaurant and the food was wonderful. We definitely need an upscale restaurant in this area. The menu has a wide variety of choices. I had lunch and plan on going back for dinner. The service was great, very friendly and professional.

Food is amazing!! Service good but not great. Fine if you are just looking for a leisurely dinner. A little high end for Gladstone, but worth it. Better than most Plaza restaurants.

We were seated right away, but we did have reservations. The food was great. The service was a little slow. I think our waitress was the only server waiting on quite a few tables. They definitely needed more help. But, I would go back and have recommended it to others.

Love that the Northland has this new, beautiful restaurant with outside spaces, great food and wonderful wait staff. I am in love with the shoe string fries!! Chop salad with salmon was good, too. Salmon grilled just right.

Great food. Staff is good. Make sure you make reservations. Little pricey so I will save future trips for special occasions. This restaurant was needed in the Northland.

We have been to Summit Grill up north 3 times and have loved it every time! It’s become one of our favorite places! The prices are just right and our favorite menu item has a huge portion. We have enough for the next day. Thanks for great service and food.

Made a reservation for Mother’s Day with two kids under seven. Didn’t find out until we arrived that they were only serving a buffet, could not order off menu. Should have been clear about this at time of reservation. Also, they had no coffee at 10:30 am. Server kept saying they were making more but waited over 20 minutes and by then we were ready to leave. Food was average at best and seemed very unsanitary. Value for price was not good.

The only reason I gave a 4 out of 5 is because of the wait. We had reservations and still had to wait 30 minutes. Their texting system to let you know your table is ready doesn't work very well. Multiple people were complaining about it. The waitress was very very personable. The best we have had in a long time. Ask for Christen (the read head). She was wonderful. Food was terrific as well.

It was a mad house! Packed to the gills! Party of 2..done in an 1:20. Everything was on point, poutine/blue cheese crusted strip/blackened chicken pasta.

Looking forward to brunch soon...

This place never disappoints. I have been here a few times. This occasion I brought my Mom in for Mother’s Day. We had a great dinner. The service was excellent. Our server was very friendly and had excellent recommendations. Mom had the prime rib. I had the pork chops. And my husband had the Mahi-mahi tacos. Everything was delicious. We have yet to eat anything here that’s bad. I highly recommend this excellent place.
