We have had brunch, lunch and dinner on several different occasions. The food is always exceptional and the service is wonderful and friendly. The wines are good and so are the cocktails - coffee is also great (the brunch). Worth the wander up Summit!

We went for breakfast on a beautiful Saturday morning. At first I was a little worried as there weren't very many people for the time of day. BUT then realized there is another section to the restaurant toward the back. Small but tasty menu using...More
