Nice stop and good food

We stopped originally for gas but decided to eat. We had a tuna melt and a cheese burger. Service was slow but she was alone with a slightly busy day. The ladies next to us were very pleasant to chat with. Food was good, service was good and atmosphere with the locals there was very nice.

We stay at Donner Summit several times a year, for a couple of weeks at a time. We eat at the Summit Restaurant about once a week when we're here. Often the place feels quite empty, but we always enjoy being there. We especially like the grilled salmon sandwich, Maria's special salad, the pizzas, and Tuesday Tacos. The burgers are... More

Didn't actually eat here. We arrived at approximately 11:50 AM on a Sunday morning for breakfast, and were absolutely the only customers in the whole restaurant. This was on a beautiful, clear morning after a recent snow, with lots of traffic on I-80. The waitress brought us a menu but then returned to the bar area to "visit" with another... More

We thought it would be interesting to try an restaurant in someplace other than a casino. We went last weekend and the place was very interesting. It is an old building and it seems to be a meeting place for the Truckee Historical society. It was fund reading some of the old newspaper articles that had been made into posters... More

You'll have to keep your eyes open, because you will drive right by it... In the winter it is the best place to stop after get off the ski resorts, but it is always packed with people. However, the rest of the year it is a peaceful & great place to stop a get a good meal (breakfast, lunch and/or... More

We stopped by this restaurant after playing in the snow with our granddaughter. Everyone there was so friendly and nice. They brought our granddaughter some crayons and paper to draw on to keep her busy (she is 3 1/2 years old). The food was great! I had the delicious quesadillas which is on the appetizer list but could be an... More

We have a vacation home on the summit. We always try and have at least one meal at the summit restaurant each visit.
