Picturesque breathtaking views of Mount Rainier!! Good food! The views are worth paying the bucks. Rainier Burger “The Mountain” was huge!! Two beef patties, ham steak, bacon, fried egg, cheddar cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and tangy Rainier bbq sauce. Grilled Salmon was amazing!

When the Summit House Restaurant was redone (I forget how many years ago) it was fantastic. The food was on par with a very good restaurant in Seattle. The chef who ran the kitchen and the dining room was incredible. Those days are long gone....More
