The restaurant is located atop the Catalina Mountains and gives a warm home style feeling. With the fireplace crackling in the back round one might think they were in a lodge in a major skiing area. Casual dining, family friendly..

Excellent Pies and we had a very nice server

This was our first trip up Mount Lemmon and it was a very fun day. We stopped here for lunch and chose to sit on the patio, which had a nice view of the ski slopes and chair lifts. It was a little cool but being outside for the fresh mountain air was well worth it. We had enjoyable entertainment... read more

Thoroughly enjoyed the view, the food, service and decent prices for what we got. Recommended stop for all Mt Lemmon visitors instead of other dining locations.

The service is Beyond horrible!!!! I get that it is at the top of a mountain so people will go anyway. We waited 15 min before anyone came to greet us at our table. Than when the waitress did she was rather rude. We ordered and our food came out quick but for get asking for anything you need or... More

I have been to this restaurant a couple of times and I always go back because it is a great place. The mountains and the scenery are gorgeous. The food has always been very good and they have one of the best cornbread I have ever had. I will for sure go back many more times, any time I want... More

My husband and I stayed the eve in Tuscon and decided to take the Sky Island Scenic Byway drive the next morning. This restaurant was just the icing in the cake. What an adorable restaurant located at 9,000 ft elevation. It was very charming and the service was excellent. We both had a bowl of chili with delicious cornbread topped... More

What a cool place...from the moment we walked in.... the fragrance of a wood fireplace. Sat at a table by a window. We were there at lunch and I so enjoyed their chicken salad. My husband's meal was equally good and our server was neat and interesting. However, asking for a table by the window in an otherwise empty room... More

Wow… wish we would have know this place was here before we ate in Summerhaven. Did stop in for pie and had the pleasure of meeting the pie/strudel maker. She was awesome and even shared her recipe!! Would definitely recommend!!

I love the hot chili and corn bread, but for ski hill food it is a bit pricey. Good ski resort atmosphere and delicious desserts, though.

Six of us drove to the top of Mt. Lemmon from Oracle. We decided to try this place for lunch, had no idea what to expect. I can say will drive up there again just for lunch. What a great place, the service absolutely great ( Kenni was our server so my advise is to be in her area) three... More

Take your camera when driving up Mt. Lemmon. There are several scenic pullouts for you to see the fabulous views (for MANY miles) on the way up the mountain. Just before you enter the little community of Summerhaven, take a right at the sign that says something about PIES and ChiLI. It takes you to the ski lift on the... More
