We have been going to the Summer House for years. On a recent visit, it was 1/2 price off hamburger day. Our table ordered hamburgers, which in the past, have always been delicious. One of our friends said he thought the hamburger tasted like a frozen patty you'd buy from the supermarket. The birght spont was the salmon burger, which... More

Large bar with many big screen TV'S to catch Sunday football. Try their signature Long Island iced tea with a burger....

One of our favorite local restaurants. Lots of locals go there year round. Go food, good value. I like their Salmon burgers, but they have many other choices. On Monday evenings, get there early, otherwise, you will have to wait. Nice people, fun atmosphere.

I visited for lunch of soup and appetizer. Pumpkin crab bisque was different, but still strongly crabby, while the fried calamari was a good amount and tasty. A nice, relaxed beach atmosphere, but still nice and neat. I had a pleasant meal with my friends--good service, even though it was busy (on a Thursday). A reliable choice for good basic... More

After reading reviews, we were so looking forward to our meal. However, it was horrible. Prime rib was tough with a plate of fat. Baked potato had burned bacon on top. French fries were cold but they brought new ones out. On the menu were potato pancakes, but instead they were like underdone hush puppies. A waste of $80+ for... More

Had been here a number of years back and remembered it being a great experience. This time it was very good, but great would be an overstatement. The homemade chips app was disappointing, a bit over-fried and greasy with no salt or seasoning. However, the entrees were well prepared and tasty. I had the pork chops and my wife ordered... More
