Located in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, Summer House is the place for sunshine all year round. Warm, laid-back West Coast vibes fill the restaurant making it a top Instagrammable destination, complete with beach house décor, a beautiful retractable glass ceiling, and an all-seasons courtyard patio.

The California-inspired menu from Chef Ben Goodnick highlights seasonal specialties made from scratch with locally sourced produce and fresh ingredients, along with market-driven pasta, artisan pizzas, and antipasti. Although the menu changes often with seasonal items, vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options are always provided.

At the Bakery counter, enjoy an irresistible selection of house-baked pastries, sourdough English muffins and signature oversized cookies, and more.

There were plenty of empty tables, but at the same time the lobby is full of people just waiting to be seated because their party is not complete. It leads to a chaotic environment.

The appetizers were delicious and the main courses were good. Summer House always has a beautiful ambiance and in all we enjoyed ourselves.

Burger was burnt, very disappointing. Pizza was great. Eggs/nachos dish- nachos were soggy and not hot at all. For the restaurant being as busy as it was I would have thought the food would have been better. Even with reservations they would not sit us in the sunny area they were saved for people who possibly requested it in the reservation, even though we were already there and waiting. Say us very close to the bar with two kids- not an ideal choice as there were quiet a few tables empty.

The food was good, however the service wasn't the greatest. It took forever for my date and I to be greeted and on top of that, I only saw my server twice throughout our entire meal. It felt like we we weren't valued customers. I don't think I'll be coming here again.

We sat on their patio along the street. At first our server was funny and engaging. After we gave him our order we never saw him again! My daughter had ordered a horchata latte that never arrived. We were never checked on when our food came and I was never offered another drink. Because of our lacking service everything else just fell short. We were very disappointed. Probably will not go back.

It was fine but the table was small and we had a lot of plates ! Drinks were excellent as was the guacamole. Soft shell crab sandwich was beautifully assembled but the crab itself was underwhelming, lacking in real crab flavor and spice. We ordered the daily special pizza and took most of it home having eaten the whole guacamole order and the crab sandwich.

The first time was for a weekday lunch and less crowded and the staff was wonderful - food was delicious and served promptly. Drinks were delicious and they let us taste new cocktails they were putting together. The second visit was early Saturday night for dinner - they were very busy yet the seating and service was attentive and friendly. We had California fish tacos and burgers and they were delicious. Love the open feel to the restaurant; lots of glass, high ceilings, wicker furniture green plants - -- will definitely be back.
