Food was excellent. Service was good. Appetizer and salad was served promptly but had an extended wait for our entree. Prices are on the high side.

This was our fourth or fifth visit. Good atmosphere and the food and service are consistently good. Glad to see a restaurant of this caliber in Gladstone.

Food, drinks, and service were great! There were 2 in our party and we did not care for the rounded seating for 2. The person on the rounded couch is very close to the people seated to the left and right. Otherwise, awesome and we'll be back!

Just a great restaurant in the Northland. We thought the food was excellent and the service was on par as well. They’re the real deal! Give them a chance on your next date night.

Can’t believe this restaurant is in Gladstone! Nice change for the area. Still some kinks to work out. Service was good but waitress kept hitting the back of my chair every time she passed behind me. It took awhile to get water, drinks etc, but not a deal breaker. We will be coming back for sure. Food was very good but I’ve had better. Like I said the best part is it’s very nice and close to home.

Service and ambiance was nice, our food had little taste (Brick Chicken), nothing special except for the amount of fat in my Prime Rib Dip. Two entrees, two beers and one desert= $77 out the door. A little pricey for bland food. I don't see us as regulars.... it was a Valentines Day Dinner.

This was our first visit to Summit Grill. The bar is amazing. Our server was very knowledgeable and willing to make suggestions for appetizers and main course. Unfortunately, we were so full after the main course we were not able to enjoy a dessert. There were four of us at our table and everyone got a different dinner. We had a sandwich, fish tacos, chicken fried chicken and one had one of the Valentine's Day special menu item. Everything was hot and delicious. We all will definitely be returning. Possibly the next time for happy hour to see what specials they have. The only real downfall is parking, but you can overlook that.

Summit is always a "go to" for us. Glad they came to the Northland. Only issue with this visit was the French Dip. The prime rib was sliced way too thick, the roll needs an upgrade as well. Other than this a great visit, will be back soon.....

Loved our evening here! The only suggestion I have is to list on menu that the brick chicken takes longer to prepare than most entrees.
The children’s menu was a hit with our 10 year old!

Love them for happy hour, dinner was just kinda ehh. We ordered from the Valentines menu which was all just “okay”. The crab cakes were more or less fritters and the filet wasn’t anything to write home about. The calamari was great though and so were the drinks. Some of the staff might just be lacking experience in serving and the location is still pretty new. Have had a server take my cash and not bring me back any change (35% tip there, is that normal now?) and tonight I think our server just couldn’t get a good flow of delivering drinks. Ours sat at the bar for a while as he kept going by them and taking orders from others. Probably just not his night and like I said I think he’s a rookie. He’ll get it eventually! We’ll be back for happy hour again!

Great meal and service. We had a large party sitting next to us, so it was a little noisy. It was also quite dark in the corner that we sat so we had an issue with actually reading the menu. Overall I would definitely go back.

It’s unfortunate that open table doesn’t let the customer choose their seating. I will call the restaurant directly next time. Lovely tables were available by the windows away from the bar crowd that were never filled while we were there.

It took 15 minutes to get our salads, bread was not offered. The entree arrived before we had time to finish our salads. The coffee was cold. My Parmesan crusted tilapia was over cooked. The crust was so hard it was hard to cut with a knife. My sides were cold, but flavorful. My husband's porch chops were wonderful and his sides were great. Management did bring me a new piece of tilapia and it was much better. We were there to celebrate our anniversary, and it just wasn't the experience I was hoping for.

The food was amazing as usual. We both had the pot roast, it was perfect for a cold rainy night.
I’ve eaten at this location 3 times now and I truly believe that they have tried to squeeze too many tables into the space. We had to move our table so the wait staff could get by with out them knocking into us. That was good until the other table was filled then there was literally no place to go. This was on the dinning side. I’ll be back because the food is that good, just hope they looking at their seating.

The service, food and setting was so nice! Beautiful restaurant! The manager came over and answered questions about the food when I had a question to see if some items were like 3rd St Social. Gladstone truly needed an upscale restaurant! Thanks so much for choosing the Northland. This restaurant is just as nice as the location off Ward Parkway!
