Description: Summit Ridge Restaurant provides great food and warm ambience with an open log fire and relaxing couches. A genuine mountain lodge experience for casual dining and that special occasion. The restaurant seats 45 diners with various table settings, and can accommodate tables of 2 up to 10. There are also comfortable couches ( seating up to 10) around the log fire for that pre dinner drink or after dinner port. The restaurant is situated high up in Falls Creek Village on Schuss St, with wide ranging mountain views through the snow covered trees.

The food remains impeccable and world class. We were in Falls Creek twice last year and on each occasion we had wonderful experiences, gastronomic and more than satisfactory service from waiting staff. So this year, the Summit was our first port of call. If anything, the food was even better than last year. Naturally, we immediately rebooked for two nights later. The adage 'what a difference a day makes', was amplified by the two day delay in rebooking. The food was just as wonderful but service was exponentially inferior and tainted the dining pleasure. To be fair, the two waiting staff in service didn't stop to draw breath, but they simply couldn't cope. It is not the place of the patron to feel sorry for the staff members who can't keep up, but rather the responsibility of management to ensure that staff numbers are adequate to support a superior kitchen staff and to reflect a high calibre restaurant.

I ate so much I became a roll poly.
The miso salmon was to die for. The liver parfait was incredible. The pork belly i refused to share with anyone and let's be honest, I stole my dates duck when he wasn't looking. Desserts were too good. Loved the flametree chardonnay

We are a family of 6, 2 adults and 4 teens.
We ate dinner twice here, and the food was exceptional both times. They have a fabulous chef! The wait staff were very friendly and knew their job. The first time our mains were slow coming out, but the wait staff handled the situation very well, so we were very happy to come back. One of the best steaks I've ever had!
We would absolutely come back here. Its the best restaurant in Falls! And equal to the good restaurants in Sydney.

Have sampled most of the top restaurants at Falls Creek again this year and yet again Summit Ridge proves to be exceptional.

This restaurant was a level beyond others this year and would match fine dining restaurants in Melbourne.

All the dishes our table sampled were excellent. Staff are well trained and proactive.

We currently rate this restaurant #1 in Falls Creek again this year.

We encourage you to make your own judgement against the likes of other quality restaurants such as Elk, Australia and Feathertop.
