Business lunch

Wonderful place for a large--100 person--lunch meeting. Pleasant sunny room with a view, good service and better food than typical at such events

We went to the Summit House for our 40th anniversary because it was recommended by a friend. We had reservations, but were made to wait a half hour. The entry/waiting area has a musty smell, like an old house with some water damage. We were given the choice of dining in the bar area or the patio. The bar area... More

We went to the Summit House on 6-10-2015 for a birthday celebration & dinner. We have enjoyed the Summit House for many, many years, but there appears to be some changes. Here is my breakdown. PROS: Wonderful location with great views. The food is Magnificent and presented quite well. The piano player in the area of the bar was fabulous!... More

We had a family outing to celebrate my son's 2015 double graduation from high school and college. The setting was very nice and it was a nice view from atop the hill, plus really nice ambiance. The food was delicious, although there was a long wait. We went on a Wednesday and they had a special on their steaks which... More

Go on Wednesday afternoon/ night. Got a great deal on Wednesdays. Otherwise it is pricy, but so delicious.

Had lunch there with a business colleague. Very large, but comfortable room, white cloths, excellent menu. Prices and quality in the expected range for the ambiance, location, view and service. Would return for a special occasion, or any other occasion where reliable service and food were a requirement.

Arrived on Wed nite (Prime Rib night). Noisy. Prime rib was O K but not a Ruth's Christs quality. RC prices however. We have been here before over the years and I think the location/view sells the food. Meat was the Cottage Cut done medium. Thin slice and barely pink. Not so great at $36.00.

This restaurant is very expensive and the quality of food did no deliver. My wife had the glazed chicken that was over-cooked, I had the eggplant crepes that were undercooked. There was a food chunk on a glass and the waiter had a pretty stained outfit that looked like it hasn't been washed for over a week. For entree's that... More

If I could give this place 10 stars on TripAdvisor I would. I have eaten there twice and got married there once! Every aspect of the food, service, professionalism, attention to detail is fantastic. From the moment we met the restaurant manager Mark Flasher we knew we were in good hands in arranging our wedding. Things could not have been... More
