The Summit House is the classiest place in Fullerton to eat. Up on a hill with a GREAT view! Food good, expensive and the usual dinner house menu. We love going to the bar to hear a live piano and have a drink and pub food.A special place for a special occasion.

One of my favorite restaurants in north Orange County. I also love the Cat in the Custard Cup in La Habra.

The meal to the service is 5 star quality. The view is so refreshing to see during the day or night. Im so glad they are located in the city I live in. Their menu has many items to offer.

Summit House is a great place to go for consistent excellent food. It is on the expensive side, but the service and quality make it worthwhile for that special occasion.

The Summit House has always been our go to restaurant for a special occasion which is why we took our son's new girlfriend there for dinner with the family last Saturday. What a disappointment. Service was slow and spotty; we had to ask several times for bread, and chase the waiter down for water refills. Food was not hot when... More

Upon arrival, we were greeted at the door by the valet. We arrived early but were offered to be seated right away. We choose to go to the bar first and had a cocktail. When we finished we were seated promptly at the window table that had an anniversary card waiting for us signed by the staff. The wedge salad... More
