Haven't been in a while but I do love this restaurant. The service is good and has great views. Nice place to take a little walk outside after dinner and see the lights of Brea and Fullerton. If you like corn, be sure and get the Creamed Corn with your entree. You can request a more private room if you... More

No wonder this is the number one. We are east coast peeps, we took our 90 year aunt for her her birthday. She had not been there in 16 years, boy did she enjoy it. Great view, no dislodging this from the top place in Fullerton. Wish my mom and dad have left this place in their will. The special... More

We recently had dinner at Summit House and both ordered prime rib. It was so tender and the horseradish sauce was superb. We would definitely go back; they have many other dishes we would like to try.

Don't miss the happy hour on the patio at this great restaurant. The fish and chips are great as is the hamburger. The hamburger is really big. I have had the crab cakes and prime rib sliders and I liked them also. The view of the city to the south toward Santa Ana is very pretty especially after dark. There... More

I've eaten at the Summit House many times over the years but it had been a while until last week. The Prime Rib is very good and the creamed corn is usually my favorite but last week it was off - not as sweet and good as usual. Everybody can have an off night!

This place is always good. I have yet to not enjoy anything that I have ordered. The atmosphere is always relaxing. I would consider this an upscale place but not over the top. Prices are a bit more than your general restaurant but not bad. If you enjoy Prime rib they do a good job. Very moist and tender! I... More

This is a beautiful restaurant that has never had poor service in the years I have gone there. The prime rib is to die for.

The view is great from stop this "hill" but the menu options for lunch were all healthy and seemed quite varied. As I would expect in CA there were at least two options for me. I skipped the portobello burger and went for the Vegetarian (no cheese for me) Neopolitan which was eggplant based but very tasty on all accounts.... More

Summit House is a good, solid restaurant with standard upscale American fare. It's not exciting or innovative cuisine, but sometimes one craves good old standbys like prime rib or a juicy piece of steak. We like to visit Summit House around Christmas because they decorate the place to feel like a cozy English manor with fireplace crackling and all. It's... More

The best restaurant in Fullerton if you include location, view and building appearance as well as food quality and service. Hilltop location with shaded grounds including a gazebo is popular for receptions and other formal group events. Food is well prepared and presented.
