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!

From start to finish, excellent as always, as expected. You cannot have a poor meal or time here. Fours of us spent close to three hours wining and dining.

We are frequent patrons of Summit House and have never been disappointed in any category you wish to discuss. Prime rib is remarkable, creamed corn is the best anywhere. The service particularly is always exceptional. Be sure to try the desserts.

This is our to go restaurant for special occasions. We really like the ambiance and the service. The food is excellent, however I must say that the horseradish that they serve us the last time we went were far from great and I'm curious if they change the recipe. We like the old horseradish taste.

We celebrated our anniversary here on a Sunday night. We had 7pm reservations and were seated within 5 minutes. The placed was packed & loud! The restaurant is situated on top of a hill, with very nice views of Orange County. It's known as a prime rib house, but they do have a more varied menu. We both had prime rib, which came with sauteed spinach & Yorkshire pudding. My wife had the Summit salad which she really enjoyed. I had crab cakes, which were OK, but not the best I've had. The prime rib was very good and was prepared close to medium rare as ordered. Service was excellent and we received an anniversary card signed by the staff, as well as a free dessert. Pricing is a bit on the high side, but based on the service, we would definitely come back.

Always LOVE Summit House. Our server, on this occasion, was terrible! The food and ambiance was wonderful, as usual! I'm always frustrated when a business works so hard to offer a great experience and the hired help ruins it. We will continue to go to the Summit House and will just ask for someone else, if she is ever assigned to our table again.

Great place to have a birthday dinner. The food was great, as always. My prime rib was a bit overcooked and they replaced it for me. Service was a bit slow and hard to get the attention of servers since it was at the end of the night and the restaurant was almost empty. However, everyone was nice and hospitable. They also give a birthday cake dessert! The city View is always nice.

This restaurant was great. It was surprisingly packed for a Wednesday evening and had to park a bit down and hike up. They had valet parking but I opted not to valet. We had a reservation and were seated right away. I recommend requesting a window because the views are stunning. My filet mignon was was perfect. I did not love the potatoes that I believe are scalloped but they were not awful. Be sure you leave room for dessert and I highly recommend the english trifle. It is a little pricey but it is worth it. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. I came with a toddler and they provided a high chair and a closed cup for him. There is no kids menu but that was expected.
