My friend and I went to celebrate Mother’s Day our waiter was excellent. He was very attentive and had nice suggestions for entrees etc.. . My only complaint would be that We arrived at 5o’clock a little before opening actually there was one other couple there and the woman checked us in at the front. Then many other people arrived and We’re seated while we waited finally we had to ask and I’m pretty sure they lost our check in information. So we were early but had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated.

Went to Summit house to celebrate my father in laws B-day and we can’t say enough about this place. Everything was simply amazing from the starters to the fabulous Prime rib.

Our server Daisy was fantastic all night. She gets a 5 + star in my book. She really made the night special for us.

They are known for their prime rib!
A must if you go their and the John Dory fish is very good if prime rib isn't your your thing.
Did my wife's 75th there two years ago and it was awesome.
A must for special occasions!

The restaurant practices great COVID prevention measures. The service was excellent and the food fabulous. I had the filet mignon which was amazing. The cream corn as a side dish was equally amazing. Highly recommend.

An excellent option when you’re looking for a great meal with a great view and nice ambiance.

We were going to be 10 minutes late for our reservation due to bad traffic and called ahead to notify but still had to wait 30 minutes upon our subsequent arrival and check in. That was a bit inconvenient but overall I’d have to say it was made up for with the great view and food.

Highly recommend !

Summit House used to be our favorite luxury restaurant. However, this time we sat outside in the middle of a construction zone, paid a fortune for a meal that was only so-so and the service was mediocre. Our waiter brought the incorrect food for one of our family members, forgot orders and the serving size seemed to be much less than before. For a party of 3 adults and 2 children we felt paying $500 for our meal was extremely overpriced. It will be a long time before we are back if at all.

It was wonderful coming back again after over a year. The food was terrific, just as in the past. We love the prime rib with the creamed spinach, creamed corn, and popover. I felt my salad was pricey, but it was large and could have been shared. We will definitely be back.

I've eaten there twice in last 2 weeks
Cream corn was cold.
And people who had prime rib said it was not hot and spinach was cold. Didnt used to be that way. I like my food hot.

Went there for Anniversary dinner. We were promptly seated on patio. We learned only way to get patio was with reservations (thanks open table). They presented us with nice anniversary card signed by the staff a nice touch. My wife and I enjoyed a couple of delicious filet mignon’s, with their delicious corn and potatoes accompanied with delicious craft brew. They brought us complimentary puff pastry with ice cream (yummy). Wonderful evening good food and service.

Love the prime rib Wednesdays! It allows us to treat ourselves here much more! We've been here for every major event so far i.e. anniversary, birthdays, valentines day, etc.

We appreciate the generous cream of corn! It's our favorite! Also the french onion soup is the best one I've had and the crispy garlic honey brussel sprouts are also the best brussel sprouts I've had.

Thank you!

Our traditional anniversary dinner with friends. Sadly we missed last year due to COVID! We have never been disappointed with the food, cocktails or the service! It’s by far one of our favorite restaurants! John Dory is excellent as is their prime rib, and the creamed corn...simply the best! Order the sampler dessert. You won’t be disappointed!
