Great spot for lunch

We had to wait a bit to be seated, even though there were plenty of empty tables. We enjoyed their signature chopped salads, minus the calamari, and they were delicious and fresh. Our waitress was friendly and attentive.

Came here in January (off season) with a friend for her birthday. Great food and I can see how this would be a very popular place in the summertime. Had the crab dip and the steak sandwich. Both were delicious!

My partner and I shared a wonderful meal this evening. It was burger night and they were fantastic. $5.75 for a burger and side of fries, who could possibly complain???

It was winter and it was raining. We decided to just eat at the "next" place on the left. So happy it was the Summerhouse! We had an amazing meal (picked from daily menu) and the atmosphere was relaxed but fun. We stayed at the bar long after our meal was over and enjoyed the night!
