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.

This place is a little pricey, but the service is ALWAYS exceptional and the food is excellent!. The prime rib is better than Lawry's and the creamed corn is SOOOOO good. Definitely a great place for a special occasion.

This is an upmarket restaurant on a Hill with magnificent views. Great for a family outing. Not very conducive for really young children as they may feel restricted. This place has a great banquet facility along with full bar capabilities for an event. Many weddings...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!
