    An excellent evening with even better food! We sat outside on the balcony with quite a view! I would recommend this to anyone celebrating an occasion. Prices are high, but so is the quality of food and experience!

    6 of us dined and this is my second time choosing Summit House. The staff is so courteous and professional. They made my wife feel very special on her birthday by signing a card and presenting a cake with a candle. Food is outstanding. Classy ambiance. One of my new favorites.

    To me, Summit House has one of the best prime ribs. And the side dishes are excellent. Live piano is fantastic. They could have better noise suppression acoustics. Excellent location. Great parking.

    I have visited this location several times and nothing but good things to for most of my visits. However, this last visit had a few kinks this draft beer was flat and the Gin and tonic were also flat not the normal fizze. That was the only problem.

    We went for our Anniversary, we had reservations and we arrived and seated within 2-3 minutes. Waitress was very pleasant and attentive. We placed our order each course was brought out in a very timely manner. The Summit house salad was amazing(lettuce so soft and not soggy), the lobster bisque soup was the best my husband ever had, Prime rib was amazing as was the Skuna Bay Salmon and to top they restaurant treated us to one of their amazing deserts the Profiteroles au Chocolate! What an amazing night!

    I wrote a long descriptive piece and then noted "keep it short, simple and specific". We celebrated our Wedding Anniversary on Sunday Night at the Summit House. So, here goes Physical Plant: Clean, festive yet quiet, intimate and tranquil. Enhancements: the live piano adds to the familiarity Service: Excellent, befitting of an exclusive restaurant. Ask to be seated were Jacob is serving. He's the best. Food: Excellent. Split the delicious, moderately dressed house salad. Our favorite entree is the John Dory and it didn't disappoint. In the past we've had the Prime Rib - it is excellent. Their signature creamed corn side is not to be left out. Don't miss it. Drinks: Excellent wine list but we paid corkage Value: Surprisingly reasonable Overall: Flawless dining experience. We left feeling special.

    We really enjoyed our dinner outside - beautiful view with live piano music wafting out onto the terrace on a Saturday night. The food was very good - really enjoyed the prime rib entree and crab cake appetizer. Portions are generous. Mac n cheese with bone marrow was a (large) creative addition to our meal and served in a heavy iron skillet. Jacob took amazing care of us - superior service, very attentive without interrupting our conversation/meal, and very courteous. My only wish would be some more interesting/more varied wines available by the glass.

    The Summit House never fails to achieve the best service and food. It was our anniversary and they gave us a card hand signed by about 20 employees and a free dessert. We had prime rib and prime aged ribeye steak. So very good - would recommend to everyone.

    Thank you Summit House for making our 9th Wedding Anniversary dinner very special. Including the Happy Anniversary card placed on our table upon arrival. Maria, our beautiful, friendly, and very efficient server once again made it extra special for us. Maria remembered what we previously ordered. "Wow! Very impressive!" We look forward to many more special occasions to dine at the Summit House. Outdoor seating is our favorite. Also looking forward when available for lunch. Sincerely, Chris, Tina, and Elsie

Every need is unobtrusively met, you never need to ask for anything. Added touches such as complimentary creamed corn, delicious, and beautifully plated meals garnished with flowers. We had extra meals for the next day the portions are so large. An excellent choice if looking for a special way to celebrate an evening, and the view is divine!
