This was my first time. The food was good. It’s very noisy and they got my husbands order wrong and when we’re seated they ran out of menus temporarily but other than that I enjoyed it.

Always a good meal, in a nice place.
The reason for only 4 stars in Ambience is the late afternoon sun, which can hit west-facing diners right in the eyes, even with the black shades drawn.
They did try to fix this for us.
Next time I’ll sit somewhere else!

This is a gem in the Northland! Food was fabulous with large portions. Menu was great with many selections for many tastes. Made reservations through OpenTable and we were seated immediately. Parking is a bit of a challenge and the spaces seem small. Service was pretty good but could use some improvement (giving grace because they are still relatively new). All in all a great experience and great date night for my wife and I.

Food is always awesome, but the past few times we’ve been there, the ticket times are ridiculously long. Entirely too long for food and dessert to come out. Otherwise, a great spot.

I have been to summit grill many times. Every time has been great except this time. the bartender decided that the boulevard rye on rye should be served in a brandy slnifter about 8 oz instead of the usual tank 7 glass about 12 oz so I received 2/3 of a Boulevard smokestack series beer. I asked him if I could have it in a tank 7 glass since every time I had been there before that was the glass used. he said something about abv and then poured it into 5he tank 7 glass and gave the glass a quick shot about 2 inches from the top still empty. Even our guests for the evening commented about the pour. The food was good but could not overcome the treatment and attitude of the bartender. hope they do better next time. sincerely, Ed.

Great food. Service was top notch. Only complaint was that the entrance wasn’t obvious coming from the parking lot west of the building. Would have been uncomfortable had anyone been seated at the outside tables.

I have enjoyed the Summit Grill several times, food and service is always great. I recommed this place every chance I get. A great addition to the Northland, if I had one issue it is the parking.

It was a little pricey for lunch, especially being in the middle of Gladstone, but is a nice alternative for fine dining in the northland.

Met a friend for lunch that had not been there. We have been there several times. Food is AMAZING but from the time you order until you receive your food is slow. Each time we have been there we seem to wait longer than industry standard. Parking is very difficult but worth the trouble. Gem for the Northland.

I've been 5 times to summit grill. The food is great but service in fair. The staff at front desk looks sloppy, and not professional. The waiters do not check back to the table often enough for drink refills, etc. It is such a nice spot and has a nice atmosphere that the sloppy dressed staff takes away from what should be high end. Maybe uniforms or dress code would help.

Like the openness of the restaurant but it does lead to slightly noisier. Seating was comfortable and waitress very attentive though did not follow up on an inquiry. Ordered a fried chicken salad that took a while. (The person with me ordered salmon.) Lots of good chicken and salad was a good size. I requested blue cheese dressing. Found that they put their home made dressing on the salad and that the dressing had horseradish in it. I asked the waitress if there was horseradish in it. She didn't know but did not inquire when I told her I would eat the salad anyway. My friend enjoyed her salmon. Good food but you have to know how it's prepared so you can order it to your satisfaction. Coffee & salad was $13. Not too pricey.

Great food. I had the Parmesan crusted Tilapia and it was excellent. There was a small issue with one of our sides not coming out, but they made up for it with free dessert. It was a Friday night and it was crowded, so the noise level was pretty high. Had a great time. We will definitely be back.
