The Summerhouse is a charming bar and restaurant with lots of TV's and a casual atmosphere. It is a great stop for lunch or dinner. They have really great burgers and the fries are the skinny ones that are so crunchy. Food is always served hot. They have a good brand of house wine. When it is in season they... More

I have eaten at Summer House on multiple occasions and always been very happy with the food. This time was different. On Mondays they have burger night and sell both a salmon and tuna burger which are made from chopped fresh fish. In the past they were yummy so I went hoping for a similar experience. I ordered the tuna... More

We began our meal with their crab dip which was very good. Lots of crabmeat and a mild melted cheese on top. We would have preferred to have it served with assorted crackers or pita chips rather then the bread which came with it. My Farmers Vegetarian Pasta was to be served with a garlic butter. I avoid garlic so... More

We went to Summer House for the 1/2 price Burger special on Monday Nights. They offer Beef, Veggie and Salmon. I had the beef and my wife had the Salmon, both were very good. You get to choose a side with your burger. I highly recommend Neiva's potatoes, they were outstanding. Give SH a try, you will not be disappointed.
