Wanted to love this place because we enjoy privately owned restaurants, especially in historic type settings. The building needs updating badly, sadly, but we were still encouraged to have good food. It seemed that the waitress had never waited tables before. No mention of appetizers...or specials or describing the menu. She wanted to take our food orders immediately with our drink orders. And all that was 30 minutes after we were seated ... and we had reservations. Had to ask for everything, including bread, water, salt and pepper. Our food would have been delicious, but it was almost ice cold when served. The only thing that was warm was the delicious pumpkin soup and the bread. We felt sorry for the chef who must have worked so hard on the meals,More
We visited on a Sunday, and maybe that's why it was so quiet. Only one other couple was there. The porch looked inviting, but they weren't serving there. The food was good, but not great. No alcohol, just beer and wine.
THE GOOD: Thr shrimp cocktail had the sweetest shrimp I've ever tasted. The soup was rutabaga and apple soup and was to die for. The interior of the building was beautiful and the wait staff was, for the most part, amazing.
THE BAD: Sorry to...see this beautiful building going into disrepair. The front steps and railings were decrepit and dangerous. Told wait staff about problem with entree, but quietly, not wanting to make a big deal about it and ruin the ambiance for the four of us, nothing was done about it.
THE UGLY: Menu specifies for the Mediterranean Shrimp "utterly addictive white wine sauce," hmmmm, first time I've heard butter,and only butter, referred to as utterly addictive. Totally tasteless. Pretty expensive for six shrimp which are, this morning, sitting in my refrigerator waiting for some cocktail sauce. =-/More
This was our first time here. The food was very good and the server was good and friendly. The outside could be updated some. It is a little over priced. We told them when we made the reservation and when we were there that it...was our 38th anniversary but they didn't acknowledge it . A lot of restaurants at leasebgive one dessert to share. Over all though we enjoyed it. We would go again.
My girlfriend and I chose to eat at The Summit for Valentine’s Day this year and we were utterly impressed. The atmosphere was romantic and even though the place was packed, we felt an intimate connection sitting by the fire with a rose between us...at. Our waiter was courteous and friendly. The food was delicious 10/10. We’ve been back several times since and it’s always a pleasure. I recommend eating at The Summit if you’re ever near Christiansburg, it’s amazing!More
Went with family for dinner and had wine, appetizers, entrees and desert. Everything was delicious! Our waitress was very friendly and helpful with menu choices. Plan on being here for awhile and make sure to have a reservation. It was a charming old home and...made for an enjoyable and relaxing evening.More
I had seen this restaurant from afar and thought it looked so nice. When you get up close the entrance is awful. The patio was dirty. There were beer bottles in the planters. The outdoor lighting is very poor and it made it difficult to...see while taking the stairs to the parking lot. The banisters are loose. The service was anything but fine dining. Our server was nice but did not have proper training on how to serve. She reached over us, left glasses get completely empty, brought salads and appetizers out together. The restaurant was busy and there were only two servers that I saw all night. My Garlic Lemon Chicken had very little flavor. It had a very bland white sauce and I could not taste garlic or lemon. My husband had a filet and it was tasty and properly cooked. I had been so looking forward to going to this restaurant and it was just very disappointing/More
My husband and I enjoy a good meal. We don’t mind paying expensive prices for delicious food. We went to The Summit after hearing friends recommend it. I was disappointed by the beer and wine ONLY list; no liquor. We ordered the crab cake for...our appetizer. It was SO GOOD. We were incredibly impressed. We ordered filet and NY strip. The meat itself was very, very tough. I struggled to cut my FILET with the steak knife. The sauce on the steak is more like a gravy, but flavorful. The food presentation was very well done. Both the crab cake and the steaks were garnished with a spiraled, fried or dehydrated sweet potato that added dimension and texture to the meal. The service wasn’t great either. I wished for more water but didn’t get a refill the entire time we were there and my husband ordered a second beer he never received.More

Well it was a special occasion for us so I did a dress and my husband a jacket and tie. But there were people there in blue jeans when we were there. It was a Friday night around 5. Now they didn't look like garden jeans...but it was jeans and very informal tops. I always think its nice to dress up every now and then.
