The food and the view is always amazing at the Summit House. A great place for a special occasion. Quite a large room, which can be a little noisy at times, and not inexpensive...but worth it.

Visited the Summit House for the first time for a get together with eight friends for the holiday. Waiter was somewhat pushy reminding us he would be good in order to receive and additional gratuity. Food was not good enough for the prices charged. Small dinner salad and small bowl of French onion soup was $20. Restaurant was very noisy... More

We had a very nice experience at the Summit House. What a wonderful property and atmosphere they have developed. We were with a large group in a beautiful back room for lunch. The scenery out the wall to wall windows was an added bonus. Food and service was very good. Don't miss the recipe cards on the table as you... More

We were a group of 13 having a retirement party dinner. Our waitress, Valerie, took care of all of our needs very efficiently, ensuring no one was waiting for anything they needed or wanted. The food was very well prepared and the portions were not too small like you might find in some high end restaurants. A last minute change... More

There's a reason why this is the go-to for romantic events and special occasions. The atmosphere is gorgeous, and the food is spectacular. Dinner isn't cheap, but well worth every penny.

Sensing a theme? The Prime Rib is excellent served in a English tutor manor type feel. Very homey, this place is pricey, but enjoy the views, relax and dig in.

My husband and I ate Thanksgiving dinner at the Summit House. The restaurant was nicely decorated for the holidays and we fortunate to get a comfortable booth for our meal. I thought the traditional turkey dinner was quite good including a salad main course and desert and my husband enjoyed his prime rib. The only downside was there was a... More

The Prime rib is second to none. The service impeccable. The view spectacular. Salad was crisp and the blue cheese was to die for. Happy hour is a good bargain in the bar and patio area. Sliders are good. They pour a nice cocktail

My daughter and I visited. We shared all our food. The salad was not well split. Wonderful plate of cold cuts and cheese. The roast beef, well, not to our liking. Nice dessert. Fantastic site, nice setting. Overall, not worth 150 dollars.
