Monday is 1/2 price burgers, and you will not be disappointed. One of my all time favorite restaurants with absolutely delicious food and outstanding service, always!

We were visiting friends in RB and they took us there our last night in town. The restaurant is on the what I would call the historical main street of RB. The food is reasonably priced and very good. The wait staff were very attentive. It is certainly worth a visit whether for a cocktail, appetizaer or full meal.

The salmon was well prepared, tasty, & a nice portion. The salmon burger was delicious -- I got it without the bun and they said it was gluten-free. The side of mushrooms was just okay. I tasted their special of the day beer but ended up with a Guinness bottle. There are a number of paintings on the walls by... More

First time and it won't be our last. Great burger the best around. We will be back, if I had to date the burger it was the best since I moved here 3 months ago.

Compared to the national average of four to five restaurant meals per week, my family and I are eat-out novices. We go out for dinner less than once a week, and we find ourselves out for a fast food lunch barely more often. So for us, a sit-down restaurant meal is a treat, not a routine. Most of the restaurants... More

Went for lunch on a Sunday. So surprised the place was deserted, maybe 5 or 6 other tables. Service prompt and efficient. Decor saloony, comfortable, booths very roomy, clean. Main bar area needs new floor, the current one is really beat up. Then the food. I was so happy to see the white chicken chili on the menu, this has... More

We had heard very good things about Summerhouse and so we were somewhat surprised and disappointed by our visit. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't much better than average either. It was very busy on a winter's Saturday night, busier than normal the restaurant staff told us, perhaps because it was the weekend of the Polar Bear Plunge. They were... More
