Summit House is the most expensive restaurant in Orange County Ca. By extension, it should also be the best. Our first time was an expensive disappointment. They mixed up our meals so I got the well done and our host got the rare prime rib....More

Surprised to learn that this place was founded in 1989, as it felt like restaurants I went to as a kid in the 1960s and 1970s with my parents ... including the my-unadventurous-parents-would-love-this menu and the piano repertoire. It was pretty flashback-y for me. The...More

The location is unbeatable, 360 degree hilltop view. Especially on July 4th each year, people would come up to the park to view firework. The food is OK, recently they improve a lot. Worth a visit.

This is where to get a perfect steak, where to take your date to impress. Where to get a perfect drink from the Bar. The view of the city below is beautiful. Have a great time, I know you will.

As a Fullerton resident, Summit House has been our go to restaurant for over a decade. Their prime rib was always cooked in perfection and their French onion soup is simply delicious. You can’t really go wrong to go to the Summit House to celebrate...More

We went for dinner and found people were well dressed. But they seemed an accommodating place that would accept dress shorts.

For centuries the English Inn has earned a great reputation for friendly faces, cozy rooms and cheery firesides. As soon as guests come to the Inn, the charming hosts and hostesses run to greet them. In front of a crackling fire one can partake of good hearty fare - the tankard is always full - the spit hung with roasting beefs - and a table heaped with sweets and such. The Inn Keepers of the Summit House are inspired by this custom to create an hospitable place where friends can meet to eat, drink and delight in the views of North Orange County's countryside. To one and all, welcome!
