We have been coming to The Summit House for many years for our special celebrations. This was our 49th wedding anniversary and, as usual, it was lovely. We were greeted at the door by Kaylee, who was very friendly and welcoming. Our server, Jennifer, was so sweet and helpful, and took excellent care of us. Alvaro, the face of The Summit House for us, was wonderful as usual. It was a very special evening made more special by these wonderful people.

We love Summit House. We even brought our friends from the Isle of Jersey (UK). They loved the atmosphere. Even though we were nit in the main dining area (I cant wait or it to open it), Summit House remains our go-to restaurant for many more years.

Don’t go on Wednesday, very busy and very loud. Not at all like last time went there one year ago. Waitress was wonderful and the valet was excellent. Celebrating 80th birthday. A big mistake going there. Hopefully it is a nicer place other days of week like it use to be.

We love going to the Summit House for special events in our lives. Through these difficult times they managed to continue the traditions we love. The John Dory was perfectly prepared as was my husband's prime rib. Still love the creamed corn. The service was very good as it always has been.

The prime rib was amazing. So tender, great flavor. I’m not a creamed spinach fan and that was also amazing. Outdoor patio heaters work great, wasn’t cold at all. Great wine, great food, great view. One of my favorite places for sure.

It was a pleasurable first time experience I had with summit house. Would definitely go again. Was 6 ft apart from other parties. There is limited parking, so we had to do valet. Had a nice view. The food was delicious.

Escargot and crab cakes were a great start! Summit House salad and French Onion soups were so good! John Dory with creamed corn and creamed spinach was excellent as usual. The dessert plate with a little of everything was a great ending. The management was very nice and accomodating. The service was perfect, and the outdoor seating had great ambiance and was not cold. This was our 20th year in a row to come for Valentine's Day. We always have an excellent time!

We were delighted to be there on my wife’s 81st birthday. While we have been there many times before we were Leary due to COVID-19 restrictions.

But we were delighted with food and service and the seating.

The filet minion was excellent. The side dishes were very very salty; I could not eat them: au gratin potatoes and fried onion rings. The creamed corn was excellent and helped tone down the excessive saltiness of the meal.

We took our son and his girlfriend here before we moved. We did not know that the day after Valentine's day was going to be so expensive with a limited menu compared to menu online. They had never been so they were a little shocked.

Used this time for our Valentine Dinner. Like the last time in October we were very happy to be eating inside. The ambiance was great, mostly quiet. The greeter was very cordial and made sure we knew the rules. The server was fantastic in doing the job we expected. The food was outstanding and they were very nice in meeting special requests. All in all we had a very nice dinner.

We went for a post Valentine's day dinner. Summit was still serving their Valentine's day menu. My husband and I split a Castle cut Prime rib ( 24oz pc bone attached) and we still had some left over to bring home. We also had the crème brulee , which was so good as well. We had a great and very thoughtful waitress , Cara, who was just awesome! We will definitely be back there again soon!
