Prime Rib
For Centuries the English Inn has earned a great reputation for Friendly faces, cozy rooms and cheery firesides. As soon as guests come to the Inn, the charming host and hostesses run to greet them. In front of a crackling fire one can partake of good hearty fare - the tankard is always full - the spit hung with roasting beefs - and a table heaped with sweets and such. The Inn keepers of the Summit House were inspired by the custom to create a hospitable place where friends could meet to eat, drink and delight in the views of North Orange County's countryside. To one and all, welcome!

My son took his fiancé for her birthday. His fiancé said that His choice of the Summit House exceeded her expectations. They loved the view. They had the prime rib and the pork chop and absolutely loved it. The strawberry truffle sponge cake was one of the best things he ever tasted. He gave Summit House an A+

Service was good. Liked the experience. Thought food was way over priced. We will have a hard time justifying coming back - based only on the price of the food.

We were celebrating my wife’s birthday and the Summit House is one of her favorite restaurants. The food and the service was first class. Just costs too much for us to go there very often.

We went for our 32nd Anniversary, and were seated near a window with a beautiful view over the park.
Our server was wonderful, and engaged us in conversation, and the rest of the staff seemed to go out of there way to provide great service, not only to us, but the entire restaurant.

I'm always so happy at Summit House. I had a wonderful lavender lemon drink that I think I'd like to have EVERY time I'm there. I also had a summer salad of tomatoes, watermelon, cantaloupe, goat cheese, sherry vinaigrette, sprinkled with black sesame seeds. Not only was it absolutely delicious and the definition of summer on a plate, but it was also gorgeous!

We celebrated two birthdays and when we arrived at a lovely window table there was a birthday card signed by the entire staff. We all had the lunch size version of their fabulous prime rib dinner of which half came home. Michelle was our server and was fantastic! I always look forward to the next time.
