When you enjoy your dining experience, you have expectations that when you dine again, you will not be disappointed. Our return to The Summit House after more than two years was amazing. Same great quality, wait staff, and more.

Summit House offers an excellent menu, professional staff and customer service always welcoming and friendly. The Chef's special offerings are always novel and tasty; prime rib is the best in the County.

The Summit House is my go to place when I want to take someone to an upscale dinner, whether for fish or steak. It is in a lovely "rustic" English style country home with wonderful dark woods, a great bar and two large dining rooms. Their creamed spinach is excellent as a side. Their steaks are great and cooked to... More

I've lived in Fullerton for 18 years and have visited Summit House many times. Again, was better in its heyday. Beautiful building and views of O. C. But many tastier options available elsewhere that are less pricey. Some dishes are better than others. Avoid the fish. Have tried it 4 times and it was over cooked every time. Guess I... More

Excellent. We like to meet friends on the outdoor patio for happy hour. It is fairly private, has a great view and there is excellent service.

We made a reservation about 45 minutes before through Open Table and when we arrived, we were seated right on time. We had a cozy booth and were given a card not long after we sat down. Drinks were ordered and we were told the specials as we looked at the menu. I ordered the French Onion soup and my... More

Met a relative for dinner and as use drive onto the property you notice old fashioned oil wells. The restaurant sits on a plot of land owned by the city. The atmosphere is upscale yet relaxed. I had the sashimi at the bar while waiting for my family, it was delicious. The dinner waitstaff was very professional and nice. We... More
