Great restaurant on top of Fullerton Valley!

My husband and I git married at the Summit house 12 years ago and continue to go back every year for our anniversary. We love the prime rib and cream corn! The waitress staff is always spot on and we have referred many other to get married there.

I have been to the Summit House for many meals throughout my life, they have never disappointed. Their signature item is the Prime Rib with yorkshire pudding. Creamed corn is always served and is AMAZING. Tip: You can always ask for creamed corn regardless of what you order, its considered a garnish! You can also pick up a recipe for... More

Had a lunch meeting here and as always the service was good and the food delicious. The location and views are fantastic as the name implies.

I've been going to Summit House once in awhile for over 15 years. It has a great location and good ambience. The one negative is that, depending on where you sit, the piano music can get loud. The arrangements are aberrations of actual pieces or songs so little more than background noise. The food is pretty good overall but overpriced... More

Service is excellent - professional and elegant but not condescending. Menu offers a good selection and food is excellent. I usually have the fish or any evening special - never been disappointed. Window tables offer a nice view over Fullerton. Check out the bar for a pre dinner drink or night cap - nice atmosphere.

I have been going to the Summit House on special occasions since it opened about 30 years ago. We dined there in January and again in April of this year celebrating birthdays. Although I have pretty much had everything on their menu, I usually go back for their prime rib dinner. The Summit House 9 oz prime rib cut costs... More

What a colossal disappointment. I had one of the most memorable dinners of my life in this restaurant, too many years ago to admit. My latest visit was awful. The carpet is a bit dingy, the server was terrible and the food was bland and poorly plated. We had to ask someone to find our server at least twice and... More

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
