    We had a wonderful anniversary dinner at the Summit Restaurant. It was pleasant evening, so we chose to be seated on the deck. The service was prompt and the food delicious.

    Our family was in town for College Regionals baseball and Summit treated us like royalty! The food was excellent- not just the flavor, but the offerings. My apple rhubarb bisque was so velvety with layers of flavor. All our meals were scrumptious. Our service was top notch and all with a friendly smile. Totally recommend this place!!

    The waitress was never available and seemed pre occupied with taking care of the other table and any time we asked for something it seemed to irritate her and I asked for a cup of coffee and she sighed with a big breath saying I’ll have to make it and it took 30 min to get a baby cup of cold coffee for 3.95! The crème brûlée was like a round egg from McDonald’s I just expected more quality food for the prices and was thinking the waitress would be more professional and in tune to us. Won’t be back.

    One of the best restaurants in the area, maybe the best. Nice rooms in an old house with a few tables per room. Excellent staff and very good dishes. The sauces are particularly good and not surprisingly most dishes have a source. Not inexpensive, but that is to be expected for this level of restaurant. Wonderful place for special occasions or good conversation with friends.

    The food was terrible. Almost every dish has a heavy sauce. Pretty much every thing is served with mashed potatoes or angel hair pasta and “fresh vegetables”. Even crab cakes were served with a cream sauce over angel hair pasta. Every salad choice was made with romaine lettuce. The “fresh” vegetable was green beans which were gray and soggy. Looked like they came from a can. The pasta was limp. The veal stroganoff was drenched in sauce. My steak was very good.

    Pros: Clean, nice server, good house salad. Cons: Green beans were put on everything, even on top of my seafood pasta dish, seafood tasted like it had been frozen, strange white cream sauce was put on top of my oyster appetizer, watery rice.

    The service was great, but the food was so so, especially given the prices. My wife had filet mignon and she said it was good; however, I had the shrimp and chicken pasta dish, which wasn’t. It was “fishy” tasting, the angel hair pasta was over cooked, and the butter lemon sauce on it was very off-putting,. This sauce appeared to have been thickened with corn starch that made it shiny and clumpy…I could only manage to eat a few bites. The place was cold too. I don’t think I’ll be returning.

    This was our first visit to Summit but will certainly not be our last!! The food, service, and ambiance were all remarkable. We had requested a quite seating to allow for an unhurried and relaxing evening out and they accomodated our request. We look forward to our next evening out at this wonderful find.

    We were there on a Friday during the busy Christmas season and the night of Virginia Tech December graduation. The restaurant was full with a corresponding noise level. Staff were very busy but attentive. Food was excellent. The old home location was cute and the entire place was decorated for the holidays. My only criticism (and reason why I did not give it all 5 stars) is that the owner should spend some time and resources on sprucing up the atmosphere some more - the wallpaper in the main room and restroom was peeling in spots. Even just a coat of paint would address the issue. Again food and staff were great and we had a good time.

    first visit to Summit Restaurant, selected after reading reviews online. Overall takeaway: food was excellent quality and great value. We got off to a rocky start with host, who greeted us with instruction to wait while he looked around through three dining rooms, which seemed to take awhile, then advised we should wait at the door (no bar area) for 20 minutes for our table to become available. explained we were on time for our reservation, he initially blamed opentable booking system and then had another side conversation with another employee, they both disappeared and left us standing there trying to decide if we should try another restaurant on a busy friday night. suddenly the second employee - who ended up being our server - appeared with menus and seated us at our choice of 2 available tables. they were out of the initial wine we ordered, but i have to say from that moment the rest of our evening was stellar. our server was prompt and very helpful, we went with his recommendations on dinner (harvest salad, oysters rockefeller, fried oysters, grilled tuna), all dishes were superb. Would definitely try this restaurant again, and hope to avoid initial negative experience upon arrival.

    We were seated right away when we arrived on time for our reservation. The restaurant is located in a cute historic house with a lovely outside area though it was too chilly to use the outside when we were there. Only one relatively small dining room appeared to be open and it was full. The wait staff was very attentive and didn't pressure us to make our decisions as we enjoyed a glass of wine before dinner. Though it was early in the evening, the kitchen had run our of a key ingredient in my first choice (mushroom stack with polenta). The waiter gave me options for substitutions but I decided to change my order and go with the Artichoke and spinach pasta. It was okay but I wouldn't order it again. My friend ordered the chicken, which she said was also fine, if forgettable.

    We have been to a lot of area restaurants, but never the Summit. We were so surprised to have such a nice dinner for three of us. The service was fantastic. It was hard to decide what to order since everything looked so delicious. We were also happy to get a complimentary cup of soup. It was pumpkin and was so delicious. We would have liked to have had the recipe, but were afraid to ask! My Mediterranean Shrimp was so good. My husband’s salad was wonderful and the hot muffins were fantastic. This will not be the only time we make a reservation. We will definitely be back soon!

    We ate here twice in one weekend. First, because some of the reviews were not complimentary and we were celebrating a birthday and wanted a special place. We had the Duck and Chicken Arabesque. Absolutely wonderful food! So we went back with an additional 4 people. Steaks, Duck, Chicken and Lamb, all excellent. It's in a beautiful old house on a hill with a great outdoor patio. The food was different and interesting. Brittney was a wonderful server. We will return!

    Very disappointing experience. Limited menu with “graduation week”- extensive menu items on website not available. Charming place up on a hill but very cold inside. Clearly understaffed with very overstretched wait staff. Long wait for service and next course. Staff very personable but unable to provide attentive service. Food was average at best. Guest of honor had send back cold undercooked steak… Wait again.
