It was amazing. Food and service could not have been better. When you go ask for Chantal, she could not have treated us better. We went for brunch and I highly recommend the breakfast tostada. I can’t wait to go back!!
Joellen is wonderful!
Great atmosphere, nice place! Also great customer service.
It is very delicious, everything is always fresh and homemade.
Like a well-oiled machine, this restaurant benefits from great professional management. We were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation time despite a very crowded room and foyer.
The waitress was friendly but not overbearing. She was quick to offer us specials yet enthusiastic about our choices from the main menu.
The Impossible Burger is the best vegetarian patty I've tasted in 30 years, at a relatively affordable price of $13. The Mahi-Mahi tacos were tasty. At $28 for tacos, this place is probably not the best for those on a budget. We enjoyed the local craft beers on offer.
Be aware that the restaurant noise level is quite loud, though it is with the sounds of customers - not kitchen and dish clatter.
All in all, we had a pleasant dining experience at Summer House, and we will be back for more.
All the food we had was delicious. I got the Ahi Tuna Steak burger & the beach blondie. My tuna burger was yummy and the shoestring fries were tasty too. I really enjoyed the beach blondie as my dessert.
Three of us had lunch, dining with a friend from out of town. We had very short notice of her schedule, but were able to reserve a table via open table very easily. I appreciated that. Though the restaurant was packed, the wait time was reasonable.
Our server Adriana, was great. Cordial, friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and especially your exotic teas. We shared a chocolate dessert. Overall, I thought the
food was well-prepared and delicious. I did think $25 for salmon with a sliver of sauteed spinach, for a Saturday lunch, was too steep. Otherwise, a good experience.
Everything was great, except turkey burger was a little cold.
Great food. Great desserts. Friendly service.
Nice place with great ambiance
Service can be challenging - but always nice
Will be back - you need a reservation
We had to wait over half an hour to get a seat, despite having a reservation. The restaurant first tried to seat us in the waiting area before offering us a real table. The restaurant ran out of syrup to make one of their signature drinks and was sold out of the burger that one person in our party wanted to order. The food and ambiance were great, but the restaurant is clearly poorly managed. They do not save tables for reservations.
I had such a wonderful time celebrating my birthday at Summer House! The staff were incredible, flexible, and attentive. All of my guests enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. I'll definitely be coming back!
Food was wonderful! We had a large group drinks took awhile but server was very nice!
We are moving and I will miss Summer House. My husband and I had a last lunch there until we visit the area, and I enjoyed every minute. My husband ordered the Ahi Tuna Burger which he absolutely loved, and I had the Beach Club Salad. We got an order of Guacamole and a Turkey Stack Sandwich to go to enjoy Summer House's food just one more time.
I have to say the Beach Club Salad is a super standout - just the right combination of ingredients - chicken, lettuce, cheese, dressing, tomatoes, cucumber, corn and of course the bacon which is in perfect small pieces which means that you get a nice taste of bacon without being overwhelmed by a large piece. I loved every bite!
Thank you Summer House for all of the great meals I've had over the past several years. We will return!
I have dined here many times however I was disappointed to learn the restaurant indicated I was a "no show" on my recent reservation for February 25, 2018 at 1:00 pm when in fact I made my reservation and was sure to let the hostess know.
Pretty solid brunch. Nothing special, but wasn’t overpriced. Service was good.
We had two issues that were corrected promptly. One was undercooked chicken on a salad (they sent another out very quickly and comped the entree) and the other was on the bill. We were charged for an extra salad even with the one comped for being undercooked, but it was also fixed quickly. The food was otherwise great, and I would not hesitate to come back!
Lovely restaurant, friendly staff, food and cocktails were delicious. Only complaint was the 25 minute wait for a table despite having a 7:30pm reservation. Management was not to be seen and hostess was unapologetic. We arrived 15 minutes early, so the wait was really 40 minutes.
good food, pleasant atmosphere, lots of healthy options, excellent wines by the glass and good service. Easy parking! I will go back!
Loved the new options on the menu!
Went with a friend. The restaurant was not busy. Despite that, they got one order wrong & the salad I ordered was so little so I ordered something else. But the manager picked up the tab for all of the problems we had. They need to get it together
The service was very slow. The server was friendly but distracted. One drink order never arrived even after asking about it halfway through the meal. The guacamole was very good but there were problems with the entrees. The burgers all came cold and the tuna burger was raw inside.
Glacial service, mediocre food, errors taking order.
Great service and delicious food as always!
I had made a reservation two weeks in advanced for brunch but still had a 30+ minute wait. The hostess were very rude and not accommodating at all.
The manager brought us free apps once we were seated which was nice. The food is just okay. Nothing special for their prices.
Food was bland. Service was excellent. We were hoping the food was better because we loved the atmosphere.
We always enjoy our meals at Summer House. It is a very lively atmosphere, bright and energetic. We have eaten here many times for brunch and dinner. The food was very good. I will say the guacamole appetizer seemed a little expensive for the size, but all the apps we got were very good. Our service was very attentive, although a couple of times our plates were removed or close to being removed without first asking if we were done. With three hearty guys at our table, they wanted to enjoy every last drop of the food and a couple of times the plates were removed when a small bite or two was still on the plate. Desserts were super yummy. Wine choice was excellent. We all had a good time and definitely would go back.
My husband and I celebrated my birthday. It was an enjoyable time.
made a reservation a day in advance, was seated in the bar area. super noisy, $15 for a regular sized bowl of guacamole
Food was good, service was reasonable - the waitstaff was certainly working hard. However we were seated almost 30 minutes late for brunch, despite having a reservation. I also noticed that the lunch menu specified which meals were vegetarian, but the brunch one did not, and as a result of a poor description and lack of a symbol, I ordered a meal that I could not eat. So definitely make sure to ask if there are additional ingredients not listed if you have any dietary restrictions!
Popular place. You will wait an average of 30 plus minutes even with a reservation AND when you get there before your reservation
Great! Good gluten free food.
Service was extremely slow. Food was ok but pricey. Restaurant was very loud.
great hostess. so flexible when i had to add two people last minute. two downsides:
table was not ready right away and we had to look around for the server a few times.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Summer House! Everyone working there were very friendly, from check-in, to our servers. The food was delicious. We ordered tuna tartar, guacamole, and the brussel sprouts for appetizers. Very delicious. Our drink were the winter sangria. The best sangria I've ever had. Wish it came in a carafe, so we ordered multiple glasses. Our entrees were delicious and timed right. Kale salad with tuna tartar, tacos, and burger were perfect. It was a lovely experience. I will highly recommend Summer House and cannot wait to go back.
Summerhouse is always a treat. It’s very reliable when it comes to food, service and quality. My friend ordered the new veggie burger and loved it!
Small portions and chicken was a little dry. Good service though
After seeing the menu the three of us were a bit disappointed as it was very limited in in the number of offerings; however, the quality of the food that was served was very good. Given the limited menu and the difficulties we had hearing across the table we probably will not go again. This would be a fun place for a large group get-together.
It's a good restaurant but the menu is VERY limited!
