Stopped here on way through. Reasonable prices, good service. Enjoyed the meatballs and spaghetti meal. Huge balls, delicious! Ate before taking photo. Pies look good. Too full to enjoy.

While there is a specialty of the day, I ordered a bacon (crispy), mushroom, Swiss cheese burger with fries ($4.99 + fries, extra) It was surprisingly a double burger and surprisingly good. And, the bun added a sweet taste to the overall flavor. I asked the waitress for a few pickles which she promptly supplied, with a good smile and... More

So...let's start. You can only have your burger one way. Well done to a crisp. Which isn't even the biggest issue here. Food was ok, price was great but to have to listen to the owner and his friends rant about the greatness of trump you couldn't pay me to sit there and get out fast enough, it was like... More

Breakfast anytime! Ample portions and good prices. I would have rated this diner as excellent but the restroom is small & very old.

As a New Yorker, I am accustomed to frequently eating in diners. They are astonishingly uniform in their offerings and the quality of their food. The words "adequate" and "mediocre" come to mind. The Summit Diner is a totally different experience. While the menu isn't as extensive as a New York diner, the food is actually enjoyable and tasty. Also,... More

Summit Diner has been around for a long, long time. Once about 45 years ago my husband and I were forced to eat Thanksgiving dinner here during a massive snowstorm. My family and I have eaten here regularly over the years since then. Great breakfasts. Good service, decent food, good pricing. What more could you want in a diner?

Stopped for lunch here on our way to the Flight 93 memorial. The staff were friendly, food -hot roast beef sandwich and ham pot pie was good, and the prices were low.

This diner is small and very popular so you should be prepared to wait during peak breakfast hours. It is well worth the wait. All portions are ample & very tasty. As breakfasts go I found it to be a bit pricey but that will not stop me from returning. Give them a try. The service was a bit slow... More

Stopped in for a late breakfast while trying to decide if it was worth it to keep going to Johnstown to go hiking on what turned out to be a snowy day (it wasn't). While deliberating the smiling servers at the Summit Diners provided us with hot coffee and some of the best breakfast we've had in a long time.... More
