Only giving 3 stars for service because the restaurant was understaffed and how food/drinks took much longer than expected.

This is no reflection on our server... she was friendly and doing the best she could in a bad situation. Restaurant overall is to blame for the service rating.

A great place overall. Last time there were a few little misses, like the celery and carrots with our buffalo wings were past their prime.

Good drink and food selection. Nice ambiance. A little noisy but no worse than what most rest. seem to be these days. Service was good. Have to make a reservation though if you want to take advantage of their Happy Hour, which BTW is quite good. Practically a meal in itself.

It’s such a cute restaurant. The decor is elegant but Subtle. I had the seafood Mac and cheese. It had good flavor but the shrimp were like popcorn shrimp. Really tiny. Drinks were great as was Meghan our server.

Went to Summit Grill for a birthday dinner, and it did not disappoint. While the prices are higher than I am use to spending, you get your money's worth. There were a number of things on the menu we wanted to try, but we decided on the Mahi Tacos and the Pork Chops. Both menu items were amazing. We will totally go back for special occassions.

Being our first time there, we were really impressed with the size and decor. It was pretty busy. We had reservations for 7pm, but we only had to wait about 5-7 minutes before a table was ready. Everything was really good. The only bad thing was that we got our appetizer before our drinks. I ordered wings so I expected our drinks to get there a little sooner. Other than that, everything was great. It may be considered a little pricey, but it was well worth it. I’d highly recommend it. I hear that happy hour is the best time to go as far as prices go.

Summit Grill is an outstanding establishment. It is right up there with Trezo Mare in both quality of food, atmosphere and an upscale establishment. The Northland area lacks a lot of upscale establishments that can be reasonable priced, a quality dinning experience but also feel special. Summit Grill hits on all three while not breaking your budget. The three restaurants in the Northland area that do not disappoint are Trezo Mare in Briarcliff, Kozaks in Smithville and the welcome addition of Summit Grill in Gladstone.

Messed up on the blackened salmon salad. Service was very slow that night. Mac and cheese was just ok. Server messed up
our bill up. When we first sat down told him twice one bill. He gave us two.

Service was slow. It took 20 minutes fir our spinach artichoke dip to come out. Our entrees were delivered less than 5 minutes later. We added something else to our order which never came at all. We finally told our server never mind, paid the bill & left. Food was outstanding however.

We love having Summit Grill north of the river. We have been numerous times and have loved each dish we have tried. My favorites: hot chicken sandwich and the blue cheese crusted sirloin steak with crunchy smashed potatoes. The hummus appetizer is exceptional. Would highly recommend--and have recommended to many family and friends. It was my choice last year for my birthday celebration with family.

Creme brûlée runny and lacking flavor. Reuben, while the corned beef was extremely tender, it also lacked flavor. Not busy on Fathers Day but server, while very polite, seemed rushed. Very loud. Expected much better with all of the positive things I have heard from friends. Terribly disappointed, high prices and meh everything else.

We went on Father's Day. Our appointment was at 2:45. The restaurant area was only about one third full but our table was not ready. The table they seated us at essentially blocked traffic to the empty part of the restaurant. We were even asked for our drink or water order until I went to the front desk. Then we finally got our drinks but our request was incomplete and again I went to the front desk. Our water and tea were not refilled without a request to an employee walking by. We finally were assigned a very good waiter but he was already working on the bar side and did the best he could. The restaurant was out of prime rib dip! At 3:00 on Father's Day! My husband and I will probably return BUT I WILL NEVER INVITE ANYONE.

When the restaurant opened service was amazing. But we always sat on the bar side. Is this all they care about?

Our server was very nice, but the kitchen was very slow, even for Father’s Day. I liked the app for reserving a table, and the place wasn’t overflowing, however, as I said, we waited a long time for our food.

Only our second time to go, but the food was good. It was Father's day, but our food took over an hour to get from the time we ordered. 3 tables around us that came in after us had their food and were eating and we were still waiting. The Waitress finally came by and said "oh you don't have your food, i'll check with the kitchen". I did get another drink. She did have a table of about 20 she was working with. (3 of us). It was still about another 15 mins.
BUT it was Father's day, and the food was good, our first visit was great, so we will try it again.
